The router arrived and it turned out it was a router and modem in one. Nothing wrong with that – that’d be awesome actually, less junk! Except it’s wired for ADSL… and we have DSL.
For those who are wondering what the heck all that means, ADSL means your internet is through the phone line and DSL means it’s cable. In New Zealand we only have one provider in each (Telecom – ADSL – and Telstra Clear – DSL) and if you want an internet connection speedy enough to watch things you have to get Telstra… which we have! So yeah wrong router and we’ve popped it on trade me (nz version of e-bay) while we look for another one…
So I am still without the net.. Oh well lots more time to focus on plotting *grin* Damn that Murphy’s Law – I totally spoke too soon *lol*
