Greetings. For my first post, I thought I would pose a problem to the wise and more-experienced members.
I just moved to Japan with my new Toshiba laptop. After waiting for an inordinately long time for the phone company, I now have internet! However, many problems have arisen.
*AIM cannot connect, and says that the connection is lost whenever I try.
*Torrents cannot find trackers.
*eDonkey cannot connect to servers.
*Skype cannot even login.
Firefox and Yahoo Messenger seem to work just fine. Here are some (hopefully) relevant details:
*Windows XP Home
*Sygate Personal Firewall 5.6
*ADSL: 12Mbps/1Mbps - PPPoE (I have to login each time I want to use it)
*Modem: B-PONHA B-ONU-ET (The generic modem they gave me. The ADSL line goes into the modem itself, so it cannot be removed without opening it up)
*No software was installed by the setup guy. He used the Windows Internet Connection Wizard.
Thanks very much in advance...I need all the help I can get over here!
