were your OS and your browser. Security and firewall settings can cause some of the problems you are having. Depending on what cable service is available to you, I am wondering if, since you were willing to pay for DSL, you wouldn't be better off getting a legal cable installation package that includes internet access. I have Earthlink throught Time Warner and get over 80% efficiency of a 5.0mbps service and pay $42.00 a month.
I have just signed up for DSL service with Visi.com, I would have gone with cable but I'm getting free cable from the guy upstairs, anyway this is my problem after "succesfully" seting up my modem, I am able to visit certain websites but others time out.
ones that work:
ones that don't work:\
something I thought was even more puzzling is that Download.com works,
cnet.com does not, also even that download.com comes up I am unable to download anything from it.
Anyone have any ideas what might be causing something like this?
oh ya I tried connecting the modem via Ethernet and also tried the USB connection same result with both.
