Arrow Unanswered: Any TECHIES out there?

Is Webkinz World a Virtual Private Network (VPN) ?? ?
I know someone who lives out in the boonies and they want to get a high-speed internet service. They can't use WW with a dial up. Some of the lower-priced high speed services say VPNs won't work with it.

I have dial-up and home and I can get on WW there. It is much slower but I can get on and play the games.

Either their ActiveX controls aren't working, or they don't have adobe flash player installed. You need both of those working to access WW.

That's really interesting. My other computer is kind of goofy so it pauses a lot. I can't do the employment office with it.

If her only problem is installig those thingies, that will save her boocoo bucks.

I have dialup and it works fine. Make sure all your cookies are deleted and you have your popup blockers allow webkinz. Most networks are private. I am pretty sure it just means you have to pay for usage. If your friend wants to get high speed the phone or cable company would have to put a lline to her house in and usually that wont happen just for one or two residents. Sometimes if a major buisness near their wants highspeed they will put a line in.

Would just like to add that if you use an unsecured addy somone can steal your ip address. Thats the number assigned to every computer that uses internet.

Thats because they will have to put a line out just for your friends house! It makes it really expensive.
