Quidco and TalkTalk? by T i m
Hi all, Stepdaughter has just moved into a new flat and is looking at getting TalkTalk phone and broadband as they had that at the last place and found it ok. I've noticed you get quite a good cash back deal via Quidco when you (presumably) sign up online but can't see how you would do so as it seems to assume you already have a phone line?

Switching ISP by Lynn W
Hoping to switch from BT Broadband to O2 as it would make sense to do it now as you get 3 months free (I have an iPhone so have O2 for that). I have always been happy with BT but stayed on the 2MB package as I didn't want to commit to another contract because of the cost. Now I could go to O2 and checking my line I can expect up to 6MB download for more than half the price of what I am paying...

Official - UK broadband is wank :( by Fuckstain
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/8282839.stm UK broadband 'not fit' for future A study of the global state of broadband has put the UK 25th out of 66 countries in terms of the quality and reach of its networks. The research for Cisco found that countries such as Latvia and Bulgaria were better prepared than the UK for next-generation net applications.

O2 and Be Broadband by Adult Network
Hi I am at the moment with Entanet but their speeds are getting worse, particularly Usenet and P2P at the weekends. Of course it would help if they kept their customers informed or answered our questions on what was happening. I'm thinking of moving, the ones I've seen are O2 and Be Broadband, which I believe are the same setups.

Disparity in available speeds by PeterC
Just looking through ISPs' sites as I'm twitching a bit towards changing ISP. Checking via tel. no. always seems to give 1Mb/s; checking via PC, where available, gives 3Mb/s. As the current connection is 2.1Mb/s and I have has 3.1, it looks as if the PC route is nearer the truth. Has anybody else noticed this? --

How Do You End A Connection ? by EW
I am a new broadband user and previously with dial up I had a connection icon on desktop which I would right click to connect, and similar to disconnect at the end of a session. I have managed to get the broadband Ethernet icon on the desktop to enable and disable, but is it necessary to disable at the end of a session ? I did notice that when I had a connection and then rebooted the...

3 Mobile Broadband - Adult Restrictions by Stuart
I wonder if anyone can help me. I bought two Skypephone S2 mobiles from 3 a year ago, both were purchased at the same time with the same credit card, as a pair. I have been using one of them regularly until recently, accessing many web sites via the handset and via the inbuilt modem using a laptop. Recently I decided to start using the other handset because the first one had been dropped and...

Solwise SAR-600E with NAT and firewall off blocks incoming connections by Geoff Clare
I'm trying to set up a Solwise SAR-600E ADSL router to do simple routed IP. I have unticked the NAT and firewall boxes in the WAN settings and set the LAN address of the router to the same as the WAN address it gets from my ISP. This works fine for accessing the Internet from computers on the LAN, but when I try to use ssh from a computer on the Internet to one on my LAN, it can't connect (times...

A Home Of Tolerance by المنيب الى ربه
A Home Of Tolerance Media speculation since the horrific terrorist attacks on America has pointed the finger at Muslims and the Arab world, and that has meant ordinary citizens of the US and other Western countries becoming easy prey for anti-faith hooligans. Shame. Sadly, the latest horror to hit the US looks to have been caused by people of Middle Eastern origin, bearing Muslim names. Again,...

Newbie With Encryption Query by EW
I have Broadband on order . What puzzles me is encryption and my query is hard to explain but I will have a go. If I have two laptops and set the encryption (accidentally) on one of them to one of the lower levels would the router then send the lower level signal automatically to laptop 2 as I presume you cant have two types running. If the router is already set to high secure encryption...

Vodafone payg broadband dongle by Mick
I am not in an area that has 3G but fast enough for getting emails and a quick browse. What I would like to know is if I left it running 24/7 and just uploading a 5kb file every minutes would it keep working and what would I get charged. I shouldn't suppose it will be allowed but it would be fine for when we have a landline fault Mike
