Sean McBride sent a troubleshooting tip about the recently released Open Transport 2.7.6:
After installing it, my internet connection no longer worked. I am using Sympatico (Canada's largest ISP) and their Access Manager 1.1.1 software. Putting OT 2.7.4 back did not help. I had to reinstall the Access Manager software. I don't know why it was necessary, but it fixed it. Note that when you reinstall, you will need to reenter your username and password. Friends have also had this problem with past OT updates. It must be something wrong with Access Manager.
Eric Chamberland notes that the Access Manager Installer patches Open Transport in order to provide PPPoE functionality for its high speed DSL service. When a new version of Open Transport is installed, Access Manager, or your ISP's preferred PPPoE software, must be re-installed in order to patch the new copy of Open Transport.
