Hello Tiger OC and all replies to my query, I have configured the adsl
connection and have carried out all the checks, it is stable and behaving
unbelievably good. I did lose faith, at one point I was going to format
my disk but now that it is working I can continue to improve the system.
I still have the sound card to configure, but with an internet connection
and all you wise people out there for support, nothing is impossible.
I have learned an amazing amount of information over the past few
weeks which will always be useful to someone in the future.
Thanks again for all your help I will probably return very soon.
Best regards Mike. C.
