Ragnor: Oh the other hand if you decide to change ISP (for whatever reason) you paid $60 per year in rental and now have nothing

True true, but Orcon is all good so far and $60/year is a small price to pay . . .

He is not breaking anylaw torrenting open office

sparkee: The answer to your question is no, as far as I know and have experienced Orcon do not do this with Torrents.

Why bother Torrenting it ??
Just download it from here.

Guys, Open Office isn't what he originally said.  It was censored after the fact.

Moving on from that, I have never had Orcon drop a connection in connection with a specific thing on the internet, though for me, the actual PPP connection does randomly drop - quite frequently even.  You may find that's your problem, and that it's nothing to do with torrents.

I finally have fibre!  Had to leave the country to get it though.

I've found the same thing with the WAG200G on the Vodafone Network, every time I tried to upgrade my Ubuntu installation as soon it it hit full download speed I'd lose my connection and then it would timeout on the upgrade due to the lack of connection (would take ages to reconnect).

I had to resort to plugging in an old Dlink 504G in order to complete the upgrade.

Definately something wrong with this Model of router when it comes to large downloading off the net, but otherwsie not a problem.
