Security Tip - for Broadband Users

Important security tips!
For the broadband users saving their username and password in the ADSL Modem, please take care to block the Remote Configuration facility of your ADSL modem. If possible install a personal firewall like zonealarm to prevent the pottential hackers.
BSNL has taken all the security measures like port binding etc to misuse of broadband user ids. Still these security tip will help you to prevent unwanted http server attacks also.
If you have any problem for configuration post a comment for this thread.

We all know that broadband suppliers advertise their speeds as "up to"
a certain level. But how fast is your actual connection? Now you can
find out with our broadband speed test,

use the
checker below to find out. To get accurate results make sure that you
are not using your internet connection for anything else while the test
runs (it only takes a few seconds)
