	Before I can provide any advice, I would need to have more 
details about precisely what it is that your ISP is complaining 
about.  It may be that they're talking a complete load of bollocks, 
and that you should simply go get another ISP.  Or, they may have 
legitimate issues which you need to be concerned about.

	Once we see that, I imagine we might also be able to come up with 
some additional advice.
