Almost one-fifth of Britons 'do not use internet' by Java Jive
"Almost one-fifth of Britons 'do not use internet' Almost 20% of British people are not using the internet, a survey suggests. The detailed in-home survey of almost 2,000 Britons found that 18% described themselves as non-users. The Oxford Internet Institute (OII), which carried out the research, said people falling into the category tended to be older and poorer than frequent net users.

BT Email by Paddy Dzell
I've had the same four @btinternet.com email addresses for something like 15 to 20 years but changed ISP to Sky Broadband about a month ago. I always thought that, as long as you logged into the email account at least once every 90 days, it would remain open for *receiving*, even though you wouldn't be able to send or reply. No email has come into any of the four accounts for three days now...

Virgin media parameters by DrTeeth
Hi, I will be joining Virgin media at the end of the month and would like to use my own router. I have already asked on the VM community and have not got anything useful. The thing is that I am looking for a list of their network parameters that I can enter into my router. Does anybody here know where I can get them?

BT [Yahoo!] email down again by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
https://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/news/uk-world-news/yahoo-bt-down-email-working-3287154 When oh when are BT going to dump these idiots - it was promised nearly ten years ago. Today any mail received between ~07:15 and 14:00 has just vanished into hyperspace, with little hope of recovering it. It doesn't show in Outlook, other devices nor even web mail :-( PS it hit lots of other ISP's...

Plusnet usenet by Andy Burns[_5_]
Any plusnet users here? Has news.plus.net started prompting you for username/password? I think it previously recognised plusnet users by IP addr Have they forgotten to send a shilling to Giganews? Anyone got a different method to ping Bob other than p.s.customer-feedback? I think he does show up over here, but only

Weird 4G speeds by Tim+[_2_]
Our local 4G speed sucks when it deigns to visit our house. Today I was running Speedtest in various parts of our town and surroundings. At my house I was getting 5.82 Mbps download and 0.24 Mbps upload. Down on the beach I could get 18 Mbps download and 34.6 Mbps upload. Isn't this a reversal of the “normal” download/upload ratios?

VPN on Windows 10 by Graham J[_3_]
On a Windows 7 PC I can set up a dial-up VPN connection to a Draytek router at a remote location. Using the same IP address and login credentials I try to set up a VPN on a Windows 10 PC. It fails saying "Windows could not create your connection" - a typical Microsoft unhelpful error message! Does anybody know why the VPN client works with Windows 7 and not with Windows 10, and so what to...

Cheap wired-only router by Theo[_2_]
It looks like my BT Smart Hub (HH6) is having trouble with devices roaming between its wifi interface and another access point attached to its ethernet. The wifi on the HH6 is rather good, but it looks like the routing is suffering. It isn't supported by OpenWRT at present. If I can demote the HH6 to being a wifi access point only (and that helps the problem), what's a good consumer router for...

BT broadband issues by Recliner[_3_]
I've had BT ADSL from when it was first available in 2000, and unlimited VDSL2 FTTC for several years now. It's generally performed to expectations with few technical issues. But from early this year, my FTTC performance has nose-dived: numerous dropouts and upload speed below 0.5 Mbps, rather than the ~11 it should be. Download speed is very variable, but much less than the 50+ Mbps that...

Are there 'home' wired APs available? by Chris Green
I'm after some WiFi access points which are probably 'business' oriented in their facilities but don't have the complicated management control systems that many seem to have. I.e. I want wired 'backhaul', that is it will have a wired connection to my main VDSL router and I'd like (but it isn't vital) to have one or two more RJ45s for local client devices. I don't want a full blown router, apart...

Modem/router or just router for Sky Fibre by Paddy Dzell
I'm switching broadband provider from BT to Sky FTTC. Sky have sent me their Sky Q Hub (combined VDSL modem/router) but from what I've read it only has two SSIDs associated with the wifi, one for the 2.4GHz band and the other for the 5GHz band. I need to set up at least two 'guest networks' that will be completely isolated from each other and, more importantly, from my own network. I've...

Advice on setting up multiple wifi networks to give coverage throughout house by NY[_2_]
We've moved into a house with fairly thick internal walls (*). The router's wifi does not cover the whole house. As a first attempt to solve this, I tried a Homeplug/Wifi adaptor, connected over mains wiring to another Homeplug device that is plugged into the router. However over-the-mains connection speed drops to about 5 Mbps within a couple of rooms and is undetectable further away than...

Mismatch between WAN IP address given by F8LURE and one given by router by NY[_2_]
My router reports that its WAN IP address is in the dyn.plus.net domain, which makes sense since Plusnet are our ISP. The GRC Shields Up site, and the Net Analyzer app on Android, report this same address. But F8LURE (http://fruk.net/index.php?fruk=f8lure) reports a completely different IP address, in the in-addr.btopenworld.com domain. Should I be worried by this mismatch? F8LURE reports...

Global phone networks attacked by hackers by Java Jive
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-48756030 "Hackers targeted mobile phone networks around the world to snoop on specific users, according to a report. The level of access they gained to the networks meant they could have shut them down had they wanted to. US-Israeli security firm Cybereason concluded "with a high level of certainty" that the hackers were based in China, probably...

Sharp Practice - BT renege again by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
Over a year ago I took out an fresh month contract for BT Broadband that included free BT Sport. This was mostly to watch the Ashes, but as it was at night and my student days are behind me I couldn't stay awake enough to watch most of it (and we lost). I also watched the odd football match. The Sport ran out last month, but I let it roll on briefly because English teams were still in both...

Virgin Broadband by DrTeeth
My street and many others in my area were cabled by Virgin Media some weeks ago. Considering how expensive I have heard that it is to do so, I am surprised that they seem to be taking their time in connecting us to their network. I have heard that it can take up to a year or never happen. Does anybody have any more info on time-scales? -- Cheers,
