    You seem to be listed as living in the UK.

    Broadband has only really just launched Broadband by the massives into the market place, and cut backs have been used to get the product out faster until they have enough money to start actually perfecting the service, greedy bastards.

    If you have just upgraded to Broadband, you might have just picked an ISP, such as HomeChoice or Pipex that have a built in hardware firewall (NAT)

    NAT is a cheap way of saving companies money by not having to buy so many IP's and allowing up to 10 user's to share the same one.

    Only problem is, NAT isn't supported by many many products/programs/software/games, ESPECIALLY Microsoft related software!

    Microsoft are the WORST at NAT support, their Messenger has lacked it since day one, along with many of their games, i can not voice chat, i can not use whiteboard, i can't do any special features, all i can do is type text and send

    So if you're behind a NAT, you're in for alot of trouble.

    Let's hope that's not the case!
