[sclug] Netvigator - Anyone using it.

I've had it a for a while, unfortunately I signed up when they had a 12
month contract.  I found it very poor, too slow, unreliable, very
latent, moved back to ADSL.  I still use it from time to time when
running events at the University, so it has "some" use.  Would never use
it as my main internet connection.

I got the same deal as you. No commitment - 512 connection as I'm not
interested in a landline and knew I was moving soon. I just moved across
Windsor Town Centre.

Latency is poor but downloads are fine, regular 512 speed. Works under
Windows XP and my homebrew Linux From Scratch, I just used the Roaring
Penguin PPPOE thingy:
http://www.roaringpenguin.com/penguin/open_source_rp-pppoe.php and works
no problems.

I have no idea why yours isn't working good except maybe the signal
strength. In the windows software it shows signal strength and signal
quality, both are at maximum for me. The lights on top don't mean
anything to me anyway.

Overall I'm pretty happy with the service as I don't care that much
about the latency. When I settle somewhere for longer I'll get a 2meg
