    Hi Guys,

    Just been called for interview at short notice for the above position (thanks again, Phil :thumbleft)

    Its a co providing call centre support for an ISP (don't know which one), and I'll need to know a good bit about configuring home broadband set-ups. As I don't have it myself, can anyone recommend any good links to "all-you need-to-know-in-one-page" sites ?

    I'll check practically-networked - always a good site, but wondering if any of you had come across any others recently.

    Cheers all :D

    Good luck, Gav. You know what this means though, don't you? If you get this job, you've got to give up the life of being a veggie truck driver. :eek: :wink:

    Thanks a lot for you help and good wishes, Guys - I knew I could count on you :clap

    I'll be checking those links tonight - just finished an ultra-quick dual-boot install of XP Pro on my main box. Suppose I can live with it, given that I expect a lot of people will now have it as their OS (WHY ???? :evil: )

    Cheers again, Folks :thumbleft

    Gav,

    Not professing to be an expert at all, but I have managed set up a home network with broadband router - what I am talking to you on now!

    If I can help, then please shout.

    When searching for a new laptop I wanted 2000 Pro, however I was amazed that virtually no comp/laptop sold came with 2000.

    It only came with business packages like Dell's business part of the site.

    I probably only saw a couple of laptops that came with Win2000, but they weren't suitable for VMWare.As I couldn't afford to buy another OS separately, I opted for XP Pro.

    Anyway, just some thoughts.This did p me off though.

    Why don't you ring up tiscali and just speak to somebody, ask what's required.I'm presuming that tiscali's not the one your going for, but I do know you use them.

    I once rang up with a broadband query, and while I was on I got chatting to the support person about working for an ISP.

    Worth a try.

    Thanks, Dave - thats the sort of scenario I imagine will be the main area I'll be dealing with. Dial-up, too, obviously, but I'm fairly cool about that (until Sandy starts firing questions at me :lol: )

    Hopefully I'll find it as straight-forward as you're all making it out - I'll check the links shortly.

    Who knows, if all goes to plan, then broadband could be mine sooner rather than later :P

    EDIT:
    Good point actually, Flex - I've dealt with them before - good support. But knowing my luck it would be Tiscali, and I'd get busted for canvassing :cry:
