Hi i have been told that i dont need a password for my upcoming broad band connection as there is no web space email addy to protect so all i need do is input my username to log on but i have 3 very inqusitive kids and i would feel a lot safer with a password as well is there a way to set this up ?

You will still need a password to log on.

To calrify. ADSL still needs to "dial up" but it takes a second to do. You'll still get and need a password same as when you are on DUN.

Not according to bt they said all i need is my name first/last and @bt.com,they dont provide password cos i got no email addy or wbspace to protect.

If BT have told you that you don't need a password, then I guess you don't! You can connect on the ADSL at the moment can you?

One thing you could try which may or may not work is to put a dummy password in and save it with the connection. All you would have to do is remove it each time you wanted to connect. Your kids may work out a way round that one though!

Keep trying ADSL, BT are sometimes a little slow telling you they've done the work.

to access BT Broadband you do not require a password only a username.
