With Telus' ADSL service, you have to register (presumably) your MAC address
through a password protected web interface.  If you don't, you'll only be able
to reach *.telus.net hosts.

If this is a common enough setup, it may be worthwhile to try to incorporate
some handling for this type of situation (ie an optional break after obtaining
the lease to spawn a browser or something).  Space might be an issue.
