Sorry to mislead you, but you should call your ISP (not HOT) and ask
them for חיבור ישיר ללא חיגן, then they send something they call "files"
to HOT (it take three business days to arrive) and then modem's DHCP
server should give you a real internet address and DNS.
That's very strange, however, that HOT did not know what is חיבור ישיר ללא חיגן.
From my experience talking with them - they new perfectly what I'm
talking about.
