Thread: ADSL problem...

  1. #1

    Default ADSL problem...

    Greetings Gents... I eventually got ADSL 3GB cap... woohoo.. not quite

    Ever since I got the ADSL I cant access some admin areas of my forum ( and I have problems registering domains...

    My ADSL is setup just by pluggin in your lane cable into the hub and "make a new connection" in Windows... you have to connect everytime if u wanna access the ADSL line... no automatic DHCP server...

    now all of a sudden I can check my mail - Googles gmail - and login to skype (both American services so no cap problem YET!) .. but I cant surf the net or use MSN IM!???

    Does Telkom put me behind some sort of proxy? I can check my mail and use SKype but no MSN messanger and no browsing...? WTF?

    I tried calling help desk... but lets not get into that...

    any help much appreciated...

    Let's start with the usual bakground questions

    What is the make and model of your modem/router?
    Is you PC standalone or part of a network?
    What is your OS on the PC?

    Did you run the CD that was provided with the modem/router?

    We will see what can be done to help.
