What are they? Any for 20 a month? Not cable though as i'm sure you can't get NTL where I live.

Don't suppose you know if the providers cover Northen Ireland too? Why you would know that- is a mystery but it's worth a try.

Cheers for anything.

Well if your running through a NIC and USB modem then you set it to automatic and everytime you use it all this is filled in. The MAC address and that are from the network card, and theres things like host names etc. I have NEVER had to input any thing manually, as I use a NIC with USB as I have ADSL. If you look in the settings you can manually put the IP addresses, DNS address etc in, or set it to automatic. Setting it to automatic will mean that every time the XBox connects to Live it will gather all the information, so that if theres a change it will still work.

Thats 19.99 excluding VAT, works out at 23.44 including VAT for setup which includes USB modem, and 2 filters plus connection. Then its 23.44 a month from there on.

I'm on NTL, pretty lucky really because I've only just moved to the town that does it! And boy, have I been going mad on P2P!! :)

I pay something like 24.99 a month and it's 600k(used to be 512k??).. so that was a big difference going from a 56k to 600k, almost 10 times faster! Wahooo! The joy :)

Whereas, now, I think NTL have changed the 1MB connection from 50 per month to 30 a month! Only just found out too!! Typical.

Was on BT before with a 56K. They sent an email to me which I didn't read properly at first, something about 'if you go over 5 hours per day you have to start paying more money other than the line rental'. So it's my fault I would leave the internet on almost all day causing the bill to be HUGE!!

Anyhoo, I'd recommend NTL and sorry if none of that made sense, I'm tired and I'm seeing flashing lights.. :)
