Every TCS Explorer subscriber should take part in this upgrade as soon as possible. Not only for the tasty speed boost, but also the 33.6K lines will be going away.
UPDATE: The transition period has ended.
As explained in our earlier announcements on stage and screen (and by e-mail, and on the Web, and in the Journal, and...) you must now use the 56K lines to access TCS Explorer.
(Or, restated as a "glass half full" sorta thing, you may now take advantage of the greatly improved, regionwide 56K service! We're excited about it. We hope you are, too. Enjoy!)
This is the trickiest part, if that's any encouragement. Set your PPP account name to your complete wap.org e-mail address, including "@wap.org". For example:
Your password remains the same as before. You can still change it using the Preferences link within the TCS.
For best results, select an access number nearest you.
For fastest results under Mac OS X, leave the "DNS Servers" field blank. PPP will negotiate an entry appropriate to the location dialed.
This advice may not be feasible under Mac OS 8 or so. If you find that you connect successfully but then cannot locate web sites by name, specify the following DNS servers (in order).
22.214.171.124 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52
In all cases, leave the "Search Domains" or "Domain" field blank for general use on the Internet.
That's it! Thanks for helping us complete a swift migration.
