Ok heres the problem rogers is changing all that shit because of excite going under or whatever happened. Anywho now our email addresses change from @home.com to @rogers.com As well as dns numbers etc. So I need the full hostnames for my email accounts. But I got them before by having the modem connected directly to only my computer then I would do ping -a mail and get the full hostnames. When behind the router I must use full hostnames for the email. Basically all I need to know is how to setup my cable again. I through out the rogers@home setup disk. I just need to know the settings. I believe it was http://proxy:8080 in autoconfig script in ie or something and then setting my workgroup to @home? Does anyone know? I'm only doing this is windows because I remember what a pain in the ass it was to get cable going in linux until I got my router.
