Got a call from telstra today and there gonna install it all in a couple of weeks. 12 / jun. What I really liked was i asked what time it will be, and they said between 7am and 12 noon. hehe
Luckily for them I don't have much planned for that day so I might as well not bother with it too much. I'm looking heaps forward to the extra speed im gonna get. From 56k to 512k, it should be wicked!!!!
I decided to let them do it cause i don't have any real need for a 4 port modem. Unless you are meant to get heaps more speed or something, which i doubt I wont worry bout it. Although XA coupe said
There are a few advantages of the 4 port.. 1st and foremost it uses NAT (Network Address Translation) which in a nutshell makes it hard for hackers to get a fix on your IP ...
Should this be a real concern of mine?? All valuable data is always kept on removable media, and is never left on the computer. Besides that, does windows XP's built in firewall offer enough protection??
Anyway thanks for all the replies guys...
