I'm trying to get a phone line and broadband set up in the house I'm renting.

WTF? [more inside]

I used to have a link to a very very detailed UK ADSL broadband checker - it gave lots of information about which broadband providers were enabled on each exchange, instead of just giving generic info about the quality of the line, as most of the checkers do. Of course, I've lost the link, and Google isn't helping. Does anyone know the site I'm talking about?

How can I troubleshoot my Mac's ADSL connection? A few weeks ago my download speed suddenly dropped to about 4kilobits/sec after I tried to set up a firewall. I then turned off the firewall, but the speed hasn't returned. I'm running Mac OSX 10.3.4 on an eMac with 1GHz processor and 1GB RAM (confirmed intact by profiler) on a simple ADSL router (YahooBB, the leader in Japan) with an ethernet hub. Interestingly, upload is fine at 500 kbps, and my older slot-loading iMac 350MHz is zooming along fine on the same connection at 1150kbps download speed. TCP/IP settings are simple, DHCP auto-assigns the IP.
