Now I KNOW this is in the wrong forum.... BUT I WANTED to SHARE with EP the misery of dial up - made worse by having paid/signed up for a 3G PCMCIA card that simply will NOT play with me!!! POINT IS - How's about a stickie somewhere with all the configs you would desire for narrowband accesss? Just a hint/suggestion (I might even have made the content if I had any time to do it!). Also extend the context of the thread to broader browsing issues... Ffox v IE etc etc plus POP3 etc etc..... and while I am at it - how about a "hints and tips forum" or something to stick it in? I know I would appreciate it right now! FINALLY - I know how you feel EP, mate! PS when do you upgrade your bandwidth BTW? I am worse off than you - no work to go to for bandwidth either, this sucks big time!
