    I've been using Demon Home 500 on Mac OSX 10.2.8 for two weeks now. I haven't had any problems apart from last night. I couldn't connect & the error message said "Authentication failed" I went to my Network prefs & I noticed my Demon password had changed, I typed in my existing one & when I clicked apply, it automatically went back to an eight digit password??? I've uninstalled & reinstalled the driver software, but this still happens??

    Why is this & has anyone got any ideas?

    I also have Demon Home 500 running on my mac and couldn't get a connection this morning so maybe its a related problem. I think they may have had some outage so it might be that. Checked their website and it looks like they've had problems:

    I'm also on Home 500, and find the Demon (unofficial) forum at adslguide.org, is a good place to keep yourself in the loop with whats going on. It does get a bit techie sometimes, but still friendly. I have gone there before to check on previuos problems, as Demon's own site dosent always post network probs straight away (or so i've found).
