Onvol connection


This week the Onvol guys have installed the cable internet at my residence as I was pissed off at paying roughly the same ADSL price but with a download limit of 1GB per month plus a lot of interruption in their service. The tech was nice although he didn't manage to install the cable on one of my laptops...anyways I did my homework and later I found out that the reason was that the DHCP client was disabled. So I re-enabled it and voila`...

This is my first blog using cable internet.If you click on the picture you can see the speed I achieve with this connection - roughly 2Mbps. Another thing I've discovered is that the connection is associated with the MAC address of the network card/router. So the first thing I'm going to do is buy a router and inform the Onvol guys to reset the DHCP server on my modem since at the moment I can have a max of two distinct computers connecting. I will tell you later on what router I've invested in, the configuration, etc...
