For us non techies, could you pls confirm that changing the DNS and proxy servers won't affect the terms of the WnW unlimited access??

I've made the changes and it does seem a lot faster :D

Correct.

I'm interested in this so I'll consider getting a Plus membership the people on this site have been extremely helpful over the last week or so, the faster the better as far as I'm concerned! Are there any other uses for the server you're considering hiring, something that would help offset costs?

i'd prob be more then intrested in signing up for a plus membership, i've been contemplating it for a while and with the use of a proxy server it might just push me over the edge...

'Academie d'Amiens - Education Nationale'

Basically, a university in Amiens, France - so yeah, good chance of being kicked off.

The difference seems really noticeable to me... so maybe I should set up a HTTP proxy?

ok anyone wanna help me try these settings?

proxy server: webcache.dial.pipex.com port 3128
pipex dns servers : 158.43.240.4 / 62.241.160.200 / 158.43.240.3
as they respond the quickest to pings.

first page take a while to load but after that surfing seemed alot (even then french proxy and level3 dns)...

That's FAST!

Interestingly, I had those settings on my list to test... as I believe the internet connection at T-Mo is out via Pipex... hence that works (the webcache is only accessible from Pipex networks).

Good call!

I can't get the pipex one to work unfortunately. Just sits there saying "opening" or gives an error message.

Am I missing something? I just edited the previous proxy / dns settings.

I've checked them several times now.

while it is amazingly quick, I don't seem to be able to use ORB anymore to stream video from my PC when I am using a proxy server - WMP says "Cannot play the file. The file is either corrupted or the Player does not support the format you are trying to play"- it works again when i remove the proxy settings...

Help anyone?

edit - okay - i understand - i guess the answer is that those french bods don't allow webmail or streaming etc - i'll try the other proxy...
edit II - and now that I try the pipex proxy everything streams perfectly - and browsing is now even quicker!

Based on the performance of this proxy, we won't need our own Plus one :D

its working fine for me, (i know thats not much help..) i knwo the first time it tried to load a page for me it sat there for a few seconds, but after that all the pages seemed to load really quickly,

i take it your only using 2 of the 3 dns servers listed, and not trying to add the 3rd into a non dns field, i'd go with just using the 158.43.240.4 and the 62.241.160.200 ones to start with.. is it producing any error or just sitting at loading?

you might well need to drop the current data connection and re open it, for the setting to take effect if you haven't already done so

The Pipex proxy works for me too, and its quick. Not sure if its noticeably quicker than the French server, but either way, this seems to have cracked the web browsing problems.

Thanks to all involved, this is what these enthusiast groups are all about.

Rob

Ps I am a Pipex subscriber anyway, nice to get a bit of "extra value"!

Paul, if you decide to go for a modaco proxy then I'm still in :D

I'm guessing this will ONLY work on T-Mobile or other nets backboned by UUnet / Pipex...

Anyone tested on Orange or other nets?

the other good thing being as its a pipex proxy its not technically a open proxy which should means its a bit more secure and reliable. (well lets hope)
