Sigh. That's the line they gave me, too :-/ The idiotic thing is them "not
doing that as a product" means the Homesurfer ADSL system is _more useful_
than the expensive business product! (Especially if you get the mcb.net
service since they are prepared to give static IPs for home users).

Cheers. If all else fails, believe it or not a Speed Touch USB would be
more useful to me! But I bet they won't give a discount if we return the
(expensive) SpeedStream 5861 to them.
