I chatted with a guy about by-passing, he suggested i simply "Automatically detect IP" with Internet Explorer and see if that works. I don't have a NIC at the moment, i'm awaiting it in the mail, i had a feeling this would happen and tried installing the software early to see if i would encounter problems and hopefully get them resolved by it's arrival.
Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated.
