My modem arrived this evening.

In ten days or so, I shall no longer be a dial up person, left in the dust of broadband users. Yay me!

Well, I'm pleased anyway smile.gif

Hey, at least the Robin Reliant has an engine! On the connection i've been on for the past year, I'd be happy with an elastic band powered scooter.

Oh dear. Congrats WeeJ! I read the title of the thread and I thought it said Ads! For me, Baby. Me!

And I was wondering why you were so excited about pop ups and I figured it must be an English thing, and I was so confused, then I thought it was an inside joke thing and I was even more confused, then I got a little hungry, then I wandered away for a bit, then I came back and squinted at the screen and then I realised what it was.

And that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Congrats! I love my DSL.

Damn it and here's me sitting around with my 56K modem, all because my dad won't use his credit card to get ADSL and there isn't an Australian provider anywhere that will bill you and wait for you to pay. My dad even offered to pay two years up front and they still said no.

So there you have it, left in the dust...

Well, I'm glad that somone is getting ADSL. Yay WeeJ! smile.gif

Congrats WeeJ. Don't let the fancy-schmancy T1ers get you down. DSLers unite! You have nothing to loose but your 56K modems!

At the moment, my computer is flirting between working and 'Initializing adsl connection' Its not doing internet things (so to speak) when it says its working, but I've been told to just sit back and let it do its own thing for a while.

Equivalent to at any rate. Cable modems are the way forward!

Actually, to be honest, I currently have no connection whatsoever, being "between apartments."

But when I get a new gaff, then I'll have a loony fast connection again....

No sad.gif

It says its sending and recieving information, but I can't do online stuff without dialing up on my 56k modem.

Mat's going to have a look later and if we can't get the bloody thing to work, I'll phone the people at Freeserv.
