Farelf Posted June 9, 2009 Share Posted June 9, 2009 Leapin' lizards - consumer LAN: http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=1217535 I'm in europe staying in a unit in location where the internet here is taken to people all over the city by actual standard 10/100 LAN networks, switches and repeaters. I couldn't beleive it. They actually runstandard cat5 cables straight into buildigs or your house from a telegraph pole and you just log in via PPP and your away. No modems, nothing. Bassicly your computers detects a LAN netowrok, and then you log in via PPP and it detects an iternet connections.No wonder some European providers have a hard time controlling abuse. Not sure how feasible extensive logging and monitoring would be in such an environment. I'm sure they do their best, revenue (at least) has to be a factor. But not what I had envisaged as a 'wired community'. Showcasing my lack of depth once more but I wonder how much Eurospam has the fingerprints of just such sources?
