Several readers followed-up on our ISP notes over the past few days:
["Luke"] "I thought you might also like to know that the world's largest ISP, AOL doesn't support macs (at all) down under either. On their website they state no date, when AOL for OS X in the US has already been released and on Mac for years... Thought you'd like to know in light of your telstra comments."
[Neil Burham] "Why not use OS X? It is very easy touse DSL with it. I just set up my Lombard to work with Centurytel's DSL. Have not signed on yet with OS 9 via MacPoet, but went right one with X. Their tech support said X is the easiest OS to get on with. Just set up TCP/IP for via ethernet and supplied via server, then on to PPoE where I typed in my service provider, name and pasword, closed and then open connection with Internet connect, the same as you do with dialup. I would also try a static IP address, which should allow you to go on without most of the above."
