I have installed Caymen Software with my new ADSL Modem... Its USB and installed and picked up the drivers perfectly... When I try to log onto Internet Explorer no page will open.. No firewall on system as far as I know... The ADSL is connected, I can see this in the tray icon.  But won't open in Internet Explorer... My ISP said it is connected their side... what is the problem????

Try to ping something, open a command prompt and type "ping www.something.com".  Also type "ipconfig" and see if your system has gotten it's DHCP information(assuming your ISP is using DHCP) from the ISP.  If your IP address is 169.254.x.x, you don't have a valid IP for their network.  If that's the case, try "ipconfig /release", followed by "ipconfig /renew", that will release your current address and attempt to get a new one.  If that isn't functioning, you don't have a connection.

Can any other applications connect to the network?

Not for sure, could be a corrupted TCP/IP stack or something like that.

PhilMad, you might want to try this tool if that is the case:

True, but on a new broadband connection an invalid network configuration is more likely than a corrupt TCP/IP stack IMO.  He can test his TCP/IP stack by pinging localhost:  "ping 127.0.0.1".  If that works, TCP/IP is working.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
