Well I just moved into my first apartment this weekend and I decided to splurge and get Bellsouth's new 3 mbps DSL Xtreme and get a Linksys wireless router to go with it. It took a couple of days to get instructions after a call to tech support for them to tell me I had to set extra preferences to use the DSL modem with a router after two days of no success. Now I get a pretty consistant 2.1-2.2 mbps according to CNet's broadband meter while connecting wirelessly, which I suppose is pretty decent, but nothing else works. The setup CD changed all of my configs around and my email, iChat, Safari programs act oddly on me. I can sometimes surf sites with Safari and I think after trashing the plist file, it works now. The only problem is that I cannot check email with Mail and I cannot get iChat to always connect. I called Bellsouth and they told me it is because they only work with Outlook Express and AIM only. I told them the error message, which says that I cannot connect to port 110 and after two calls, I finally found out from a tech that it should be port 1180, so I check but they told me to call back instead of having the tech guy wait for me to configure Mail since I told him I did not have Outlook. Port 1180 doesn't work, either, though, and the only response I get is that "We don't support anything but Outlook, if you want to use Bellsouth Fast Access DSL, you must use IE 6 and Outlook Express only". I cannot believe this must be the case since it's just a matter of setting the correct preferences. Does anyone else use Bellsouth DSL without using IE or Outlook? How do you configure the settings, and if it isn't settings, then could it be the router somehow preventing me from connecting to the correct port?
