I need help on how to get around this new "problem" PLDT has given its new DSL subscribers.
When I tried helping out my inlaws install their linksys router, I found out that logging in into their myDSL account is a bit more complicated than before. It used to be that you just create a new connection via connection wizard (WinXP users) and when done, double click that connection to login with your name and password to connect to the net. Using a similar procedure, I know that the linksys router can automatically input your username and password for you so that you connect to the net automatically, as long as both the modem and router are on.
Now, PLDT requires you to just thru some hoops.
1. Set homepage to http://10.254.8.15:8080. This then accesses the login screen
2. After typing your username/password, it brings you to another page with a big logo of PLDt myDSL. You can now browse your favorite website...sort of.
3. If you try to access any website, it will initially ALWAYS redirect you first to www.mypad.net. WHAT THE H*LL is up with that?
So my question is that is there any workaround to this so that the router logs in automatically? It seems such a hassle especially compared to my GlobeDSL account in my appartment. Just plug in the modem and go...no more login cr@p!
Sorry to be venting a little guys. Thanks in advance.
