ADSL problems

  [DELETED] 17:44 22 Oct 2003

I haven't had trouble with my Nildram 500kb adsl since I first got it however I have just reformatted and switched to XP. At first I couldn't get it working at all however I figured it out (I hadn't entered my username right due to the software for 98 and xp being different). Now though my connection is rather unpredictable, sometimes links do not load and MSN and AIM disconnect on their own. Also Half Life (the only game I have so far tried online) comes up with something about Lans being restricted to class C when I try and connect to a server. Any ideas about this and how to fix it?

Also what standard stuff should I be letting through my firewall on XP?
Right now I am letting them all through however its pointless having a firewall if I do that all of the time.
