hathway is using 24online client. but how? b/s i m using 24online client , but without modem.
u said u using modem. In day time, i get 10-15 kbps download speed on -- link removed --,but in night get 50-60 kbps on 512 kbps net. i dont know why,b/s customer care speak they bind bandwidth.
i think due to low total bandwidth and over capacity users. am i right?

Also it is prepaid plan. So I wont have to worry about going over & having to pay extra without my knowledge. And my usage at 64 kbps unlimited is around 1-2 GB per month when I was using both day & night. So with night unlimited & day limit at 3 GB . I think it will last me the 3 months & I wont mind if I finish it off in 1-2 months & as I can recharge again. But as to how I connect to Hathway - I dont have any dialer setup. It is an ethernet cable that goes from the modem into my PC. And IP address & all is entered into network setting. And my modem is always switched on. So volia I am always connected. Sorry, I am not much a geek as far as an networking goes, so not sure if I replied to your question properly, patch. Please let me know exactly what you are looking for, and I will try my best to respond to that
