|Still no internet :(

After much testing, poking and prodding, I still don't have a working ADSL connection. The bad news is that it's the fault of my computer - when I gave in and install windows (not easy, since the machine was all partitioned up for linux only), that did manage to make a working adsl connection.|
I've come to the conclusion that the fault is with the motherboard - it sometimes breaks the network card in an analagous way - card transmits, but never sees the responses it gets back (which is what I have with the adsl). So, it looks like I'm going to have to give in and buy a new motherboard, just as soon as the combined knowledge of OxLUG has suggested what's the best linux friendly one :)
In other computing news, have managed to get my MVP working (Netgear sent me a new access point on Friday). It is really cool, now I just need to figure out how to transcode DIVX to MPEG on the fly and I'm sorted.
