MTS TV Incompatable with Internet? (or routers)
I just got a call from my mom in Winnipeg. They have MTS TV as well as MTS ADSL. When I upgraded their computer last year to Windows XP, I also installed a router for them for firewall purposes.
Apparently their TV service went out yesterday, and the MTS tech said it had to do with the router, and that the router may have to go. Myself, I am very uncomfortable with having any computer hard wired to the internet; let alone one that I am trying to support from 1300 km away. (It's not like I can pop over for Sunday dinner and rebuild their computer for them.)
Has anybody else heard of this? I would think between Sasktel and MTS they would have subscribers that have TV and Internet, and surely a good number of people would have routers.
FWIW, I did give them my "good" router; my 3 year old bullet proof Linksys.
