Re: How to stop Spam

Re: Usenet won't connect

ok, have connected successfully with my trusty old Billion 7100, so obviously there is something going on in my usual router - 7500G.

[quote="tocpcs"]Your spam could have originated from anywhere really. Is it a common name? Is it one you had active before (the same one?). no it's not a common name, more a combination of mine & my wifes names. yeah, the names were active a few years ago as I mentioned but i'd figured that seeing t...
