    It looks like I may be getting a 256 DSL connection very soon.
    Keep your fingers crossed for me gang!

    But in my opinion being stuck with dial-up for 5 years is long enough. Apparently the trunk here can support 6 connections until fibre-optic arrives here -- and it looks like yours truly is in line for 1 of those precious 6.

    So, being that all this NIC and router stuff is greek to me because reading about it before just depressed the hell out of me.
    Where can I go to get up to speed on the issues like security, optimization, etc. etc.

    doin' the happy dance now baby!:bounce:

    Congrats Mr C! You've been holding out for a long time for this. I just hope it comes through for you. I must say I love every second of my 512k connection... it's so nice.. :)

    Where do you go for help? Right here in these forums! There's been so much said in the Internet n Networking area (half of which you've contributed to) that you shouldn't need much more. If so, just ask away. I'm sure between us all we've got any kind of set up you're looking for.

    I am back on 56k now I am back in the country. When I head back to the city I am going to buy a router with dual DSL ports and signup for two 1500 plans - 3mbits should be nice! :D

    LOL
    Yes Beefy, thanks for the tip!
    And it wasn't like I was holding out, Lord knows I'd have signed up in an uptown minute given the chance -- which I did when I was:)

    The phone guy came today to install the second line (because it was the only upgrade I could get for connectivity).
    Well, we was talking PC's 'n' connections and such ('cause you know I love that stuff!), and he says to me, "I get 256,000 on my DSL."
    So I says to him, "where do you live?"
    And he says to me, "In that trailer over there."
    I says, "We just wasted our damn time."
    He says, "If you want DSL, call the office, I got 2 spaces left on the hub."
    I says, "let me go get the phone."

    And hopefully, the rest is history.
    My wife called them Monday and was told it would be 2 years before DSL could be made available, so she arranged for the second line.
    I called today and talked to a different gal (there are only 2 there) and she knew all about it and was only too happy to make the arrangements, username and password is all in place even.

    I already told the phone guy -- hec, we're neighbors for cryin' out loud -- that if he could get me the Cat5 I'd have it routed under the house and all he had to do was work the ends. He was cool with that. (and I'm sure, pleased not to have to crawl under the house) :laugh:
    Dood! this PC sits like 60 feet from the doggone hub, so it ought'a be full bore when they get the fibre-optic in. With a bit of services upgrade of course.

    But yeah, definitely looks like it's going to be time to sift through the past Networking threads and get myself up to par.
    At least I hope so!
    **fingers crossed**

    Congrats, Mr. C!
    I was tickled to no end when I went from dialup to DSL. I hope I never have to go back.

    Enjoy!:thumb:

    Funniest dialup memory is when Juno.com tried to charge me $29.95 for a what was supposed to be a $9.95 unlimited use plan... because I used it too much. I think I cancelled the service faster than I was ever able to connect to the service. :laugh: :hammer:
