    Make sure that the EasyNet GUI is closed after you go online.

    Tell me if that makes the difference.

    MBUFs should really make a difference with IBrowse, it does with my system.

    However, a good test of HTTP download is not with IBrowse as it is very CPU intensive.

    You could try WGET or similar to test HTTP speeds.

      With EasyNet I have always used random host names and random network names without any troubles on my Amiga's, regardless of my actual internal domain name or ISP.


      Never ever used DHCP or ISP settings in EasyNet though...

      I would use static IP and a random internal domain name over DHCP any day.

          Finally!

          So I finally got my easynet to work, actually it was incredibly easy I just messed up the first times I tried to configure it.

          I used the settings Ipconfig gave me and static router-adress and used my ISP's network domain name.

          Once I did that, it was up and running and with decent speed aswell I think.

            Well, I could not get mine to work at all with a Virgin Media cable connection.

            All of the settings seem simple enough, but no combination of DNS and Network Domain Name (whatever that is) will work.

            In the Configure DNS... area you can choose "UK- Virgin". this correctly assigns Virgin Media's DNS servers but puts 'Virgin.net' (again, whatever that is!) in the Network Domain Name box. All this ends up doing is appending 'virgin.net' to any addresses I tried to look up in AWeb, i.e. 'amibay.com.virgin.net'. Strangely, I was never able to surf the web like this! :-/ Changing the Network Domain Name to 'virginmedia.com' (their correct server name) was a step closer (I was able to browse to aminet.net) but mostly failed with other sites just giving an unhelpful 'Error' message in AWeb's main browser window.

            I thought I'd try changing the DNS to my router address of 192.168.0.1, but still no...

            On my second evening of trying to set this up I began to get closer (in that I was just getting DNS errors from the virginmedia.com server), so I tried good ol' Google - popped Google.com in the Network Domain Name box along with 8.8.8.8 as the primary DNS and, hey presto, I'm online with my X-Surf 100!

            What a palaver though - surely it shouldn't be this difficult, and why did I have to resort to using Google as the DNS? My setup's hardly 'complex'!

            Anyone else with VM trying to use EasyNet? I'd be interested to discover your learnings.............
