I have just subscribed to jetstart and bought an internal PCI modem. The modem is a World Net branded modem, it is called 'Access Runner M-CNX-DSL-PCI2'
My question is the way the modem configured we still have to use dial up to connect to the net. Is this correct or am I missing something in setting up the modem?

Yes, your ADSL connection is still accessed through the dial up system, but the modem should be setup.
You will have to enter your adsl logon in the dial up box as well as password.
If you are with Xtra, they should talk you through this.

It was just that whenever you read about adsl they say it is 'always on' I thought that as soon as the comp is switched on you are connected, and I thought I was doing something wrong.
