My old Palm Treo finally died so I'm looking at these new fangled

| || || | Suitable provider
My F-in-L in his late 80's has suddenly decided he would like broadband
(he has dial up but rarely uses it because it takes too long to set up.)
A low limit - 10Gb or less - would be more than enough. His current BT
phone bill is about £90/qtr calls plus rental as he is only on Option He
rarely calls mobiles.
Can anyone give me ideas on who might be a suitable supplier for an ADSL

I have three Netgear DG834G modems, a V2, V3 and V5.
I have installed DGTeam firmware on the V2 and the V3 and I am trying
to find the SNR setting in the routers browser interface, but cannot
find it. I read a suggestion that it should be under the Advanced ADSL

anyone advise where the SNR settings ought to be please?

I'm out and about a bit and have a O2 dongle for my laptop, I often buy a

(The O2 home page when I connect says I can use BT Open Zone free but BT ask
me for money when I'm in one.)
I'm thinking of a change but are they all a rip off with the loosing your
