[http://online1degree.chat.ru/ Online degree]  1. '''Q:''' Is this really a free internet site? Can I use it as much as I want? [[BR]]
 '''A:''' You bet! This is a community wireless network provided to the public free of charge. Please remember that someone else is paying for the bandwidth so you can use it for free. Be respectful.

 * '''Q:''' Why are you guys giving away free wireless internet? [[BR]]
 '''A:''' Well that's a bigger question then we have space for here. You might try browsing the website for some insight into what it's all about, especially the [CategoryPhilosophy philosophy section]. The short answer is that we think it's fun, and a great way for geeks and local businesses to give back to the community they live in.

=== Trouble Shooting ===

 1. '''Q:''' Why am I having problems with my email? [[BR]]
 '''A:''' You should only be having problems with '''''sending''''' email. See the next question for details.

 * '''Q:''' Why can't I send email from some nodes? [[BR]]
 '''A:''' Most of the high profile public nodes (see CategoryNode) have port 25 blocked. This means that you can not '''send''' email. The reason we do this is to prevent spam, it would be too easy for spammers to abuse the public internet access offered to spam even more people.

 The best solution is to use a free web based mail service like [http://www.mail2web.com/ Mail2Web] or [http://www.mollymail.com/ MollyMail] to send and recieve your mail.

 We are actively working on solutions which will allow you to send your email, but will stop the spammers from abusing the system.

 * '''Q:''' I can't get access with my Palm Pilot, what's going on? [[BR]]
 '''A:''' (Note: This is off the top of my head, if someone knows more details please help). Unfortunately this is a limitation of most browsers for palm pilots. Almost all of them do their web browsing via a proxy (which does some magic to format their pages for the small palm screen), and since the proxy isn't available before you authenticate it just can't work. Unfortunately there isn't anything we can do to make this work right now. However there is a free palm web browser which doesn't require a proxy called [http://www.eudora.com/internetsuite/eudoraweb.html EudoraWeb]. If it works for you please let us know so we can pass on the information to other PalmPilot users. ''' 11/2003 ''' With the release of the [http://www.palmone.com/us/products/handhelds/tungsten-c/ Tungsten C] a few months back and with the [http://www.sandisk.com/consumer/sdwifi.asp Sandisks Wifi SDIO card] many Palm can now fully enjoy the fruits of connectivity without conduits, proxies or clipping software.

 * '''Q:''' When trying to access the web via the Pioneer Square node on PPC2000, there was no Login Button. Didn't get a chance to try with another web browser (which I believe was suggested).

 '''A2:''' On http://www.tucows.com, you can download the freeware vxIPConfig program for your PocketPC PDA which allows you to refresh DHCP. -- TedSeeber [[BR]]

 * '''Q:''' After I connect to a Personal Telco node my DNS settings get over written. [[BR]]
 '''A:''' Most likely you are running a Unix if you are having this problem. What's happening is that your DHCP client is overwriting your /etc/resolv.conf file with the settings most appropriate for the node you connected to. The best way to fix this problem is to enable DHCP everywhere you go and just let it overwrite your settings with the most appropriate settings whereever you are. If you don't like that then most clients have a setting which tell it not to do this. With pump you can tell it to leave your resolv.conf alone by running it like this (where eth0 should be replaced by whatever your ethernet/wireless interface is):

 {{{# pump --no-dns -i eth0}}}

=== New Questions ===

New Question - '''Q: Does PersonalTelco.net have a news server if I want to cruise newsgroups?'''
 '''A:''' The PTPnet currently does not run its own newserver, though several nodes might have access to such via the ISPS they are using. Please ask the node admin for further details. Another solution is to use [http://www.google.com/grphp?hl=en&tab=wg&q= Google Groups], which covers many usenet groups plus deep archives of them to search. At some future time PTPnet might include local groups and feeds from outside groups, but as of Nov 2004 this is not even on the todo list.

General Questions

  1. Q: Is this really a free internet site? Can I use it as much as I want? BR A: You bet! This is a community wireless network provided to the public free of charge. Please remember that someone else is paying for the bandwidth so you can use it for free. Be respectful.

  2. Q: Why are you guys giving away free wireless internet? BR A: Well that's a bigger question then we have space for here.
