    Today I wnt to our other location to install the DSL modem I got free as
    part of Orcon's unlimited 256/Kbit broadband deal.

    And it was one of those days.

    Orcon did what they said they would do, and it worked.
    Telecom did what they said they would do on the day they said they would
    do it, and it worked.

    And I just plugged in, fired it up, and it's working.

    Nice when that happens, isn't it?

    Some friends wanted me to help them install the USB-based ADSL modem and
    configure their PC.

    Very soon I worked out they had no userid or password from the
    that was the first call.

    The second call was when the userid and password provided failed to
    login.....and it was found that it had been allocated, but had not been
    defined on the (probably radius) login server at the ISP end.

    Bit of lag-time after the "done right now" definition....and they were away
    and working and everything was fine.

    But without help they would have been utterly lost.....
