I spoke with iiNet about this yesterday. They told me that some IP addresses 
allocated when you connect to Transact do not allow you to use news. The fix 
is to disconnect and reconnect until you get an IP that works!!!!

You may have also noticed that usage figures as reported by the new WebOne 
'toolbox' are crazy. They are only recording usage on some connections - may 
be related to the above IP issue. Their 'fix' will be to send Webone/Transact 
users a weekly email containing usage data as recorded by Transact - fat lot 
of use that'll be at the end of the month!!

What a mess!!
