Today I was in touch with Perlico re their DNS address. They refused to give it to me. They had some advice like "set the IP static" automatically but I am not technically competent enough to argue with them. Looks like a stone wall :evil:

Thanks for your reply

I am using utorrent. I have ipconfiged but it tells me nil since I think (and here I get lost in the jargon) Perlico are using the modem as a proxy so their true DNS is not shown

I'm afraid I don't fit the bill for your journalist friend. I hate to be pedantic but I don't think too much of her spelling :o
