I just got the above to work with my Cingular Orange account. The ISP version did not work for me. Interenstingly though, I had to remove the ,"",0,0 from the end of the string or I received 692 errors.

So far, it looks like it's readlly slow though, and it's almost like there are some DNS issues with the connection I have because some things are having trouble loading at all like my Outlook Web Access for my work email.

I'm interested in any and all tweaks to this.
