It will always be the same; I had the same ISP Address with them for 3 years, even after they changed to Wanadoo. They can tell you on the technical support, and probably help you with setting the rest up. Good luck with it!

Your Grace will do just fine thanks :P

Nah, I changed to BT for the 2Meg connection before Wanadoo did it; but I also wanted a new Modem I did not know that! They're being brought by Orange the Mobile Phone Company with all the Movie Ads at Cineworlds?
