Changing a router by Woody
I asked on here a few weeks ago about routers that self reboot to overcome a problem that a farmer friend has. He is at the end of a long line (3Km) and usually gets about 1.6Mb. However sometimes, often after wet/windy weather, the speed drops to around to 650Kb and it can only be made to go back up by power cycling the mains. I will be seeing him shortly and I have a 24hr timeswitch which...

SOT: problems with Skype by Woody
I have Skype on two machines, a laptop running W7Pro and a desktop running W10Pro. This morning I attempted a Skype call with my daughter. We got her picture, she got our sound but nothing else - she initiated the call. This has worked perfectly in the past, and were are both on VM cable. I checked and there was an update (8.17.02) but after that was installed I could not sign in - I just...

Openroach will lower their 1gbit symmetric fibre internet to around 3000 by Richard Tobin
In article , R. Mark Clayton wrote: Your firm is an ISP - and the question remains - why are you moaning about BT's prices when you say you can install for 5% of the price - just do it. Does he really have a company? If so, what's it called, so I can steer clear of it.

Hopefully now they have won we won't have to endure pages of 7's drivel about the subject, although whether Hyperoptic can...

BT HH4 speed issue by Woody
A friend who is a farmer also runs a small caravan site and has provided free wi-fi for his guests. He is at the end of almost 3000m of (mainly) overhead line and so the download speed is slow. When we arrived on site last month it was doing almost 1.6Mb. We then had two nights of heavy rain and frighteningly high winds. When I checked again the download was only 650K but the upload was...

Upgrade? by Davey
My ISP is suggesting that I might like to upgrade from my current 7-year-old Thomson TG585 router, to a new FRITZ!Box 3490. They are not pressurising me. Bearing in mind that my use is fairly simple, a PC or two, a printer, and a PVR, all wired, and a Wi-Fi connected camera, is there any great advantage in doing this? The cost is about 75. If there will be definite advantages, it would be...

BT [Yahoo!] servers screwed yet again by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
Can't access email from Outlook , tablet nor phone. Third or fourth time in two weeks - outages last many hours. Can still log into web mail. Usually affects main account, but two sub accounts briefly affected on Monday. Very little held online (.ost), so hard to see any rationale, such as difficulty syncing . When Oh when are BT going to dump Yahoo! and do email properly?

BT TV box uncommanded power on by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
Mine keeps coming on at odd times, despite being set to be on cold standby and no configured events. If previously on an online channel it saps bandwidth between the router and the net, slowing my PC. Anyone know how to stop this short of unplugging the wall wart?

John Lewis Broadband versus TalkTalk for VDSL/FTTC (traffic shaping) by Winston Smith[_2_]
Right now I have ADSL with Plus.net. Recently the the cabinet in my street was fibre-enabled, and I can now get VDSL (FTTC). Right now I am getting 1Mbps up/ 6Mbps down, and 65 ms ping. I will be upgrading to 10Mbps up/38Mbps up. Will the ping time improve much? I can try to get a higher speed 76Mbps product, but I doubt I can get that speed 300 meters away from the cabinet or that there...

Domain Name Release by Simple Simon
I have several domain names hosted on daily.co.uk left over from previous projects. I no longer want/need them. They are all set to expire but I would be happier if they were released now. Some however have another year to run. I have asked daily if they would release them now but I got a flat "no" in reply.
