If so, what are they like?
That's where your problem lies. "Never dial a connection" is for those people using a router or connecting through another computer or always-on device. If you set it to either "Dial whenever a network connection is not present" or "Always dial my default connection" it will connect when it needs to (e.g. when opening your web browser).Ell said:I've had to open AccessRunner DSL and enter user detals and click DIAL to get any internet connections. Is this normal? I have to do this everytime i open a browser for the first time after starting up my machine. I've checked my internet connection settings and they say that AccessRunner DSL is the default (dial-up) connection and the Never DIal a Connection option is highlighted as indicated in ADSL4less's help section but i still have to manually connect each time.
If you're using an ADSL modem or router, there's no way you'd be connecting through dial-up. ADSL uses much higher frequencies than dial-up (which is why you can still use your phone with ADSL, but not with dial-up). If you were connected through dial-up, you'd be connected at 56kbps. The lower speed you're experiencing is most likely due to either the line quality, distance from the exchange or an unfiltered device on the same line (anything plugged into extensions of the line used for ADSL needs to pass through a microfilter).Can someone help? The pessimistic side of me thinks it's connecting through dial-up but the more sensible side thinks it must be a setting prob (connection speed is 471kbps..i only live in a 512 area).
Don't know what they are like, but I read their cheaper package is charged a year in advance, also they were in breach of the ofcom rule requiring them to be a member of a dispute resolution service (either cisas or otelo) and I haven't seen anything to suggest that they have resolved this yet.KING said:adsl4less still going ok ?
