I'm planning on moving my mother to VFX, from a bare Telecom POTS line. And I'm going to try and do it from Sydney.
So, the questions:
1. I have a PAP2T (old, but serviceable) that I've previously used on VFX, but I think I unlocked. When I put the profile URL into it (http://126.96.36.199/configs/default/default$MA.cfg still, right?) it takes it, modifies it to have a [key], then clears it completely.
Can I set this up before I arrange my mother's connection? Is it clearing the URL because I previously used this on OpenVFX? Anything I can do to fix it?
2. I've got a fairly basic new Belkin Play modem/router arriving to her house soon (it's not a great one, but it'll do). Courtesy of Acquire's new reverse-auction page which gives pretty amazing prices on a Friday :-) $12
Someone's going to have to configure that ADSL details into it, right?
Mmmm. Thats all for now I think. My brother can set up the hardware, but I'd rather do as much pre-work as possible.
PS My own VFX connection works great from Sydney.
