Question about i-plate by les
Have ordered an i-plate just to see if it will help my broadband connection. However my wireless modem is not connected to the main master box, its in the first extension. Will I need to move my modem to the main master box or will the i- plate isolate the bell wire prior to the extension? I used to have it plugged into the master socket but its more convenient as I have an airport adapter...

BT ADSL Max Upsteam Speed ? by Mark Carver
My father has just had his IP-Stream based ADSL service upgraded from a fixed 2 Meg service, to an 'up to 8 Meg' rate adaptive service. I've taken a look at his router stats. d/s sync 7.6 Meg u/s 832 k SNR was hovering between 8 and 9 dB Before the upgrade it was 2.2M d/s, 256k u/s SNR 24-25 dB (as the crow flies line length is 820 metres, small rural exchange)

BT newsgroups missing by Homer Simpson
The BT newsgroups (such as bt.broadband.support and bt.internet.users.chat amongst others) are closed to the public, allowing only customers of BT Internet (or whatever it's called today) to see/take part in them and the feed is provided by GigaNews. Unfortunately, all the BT newsgroups have disappeared from the server (at least for me anyway), giving Error 411 - no such group. That means,...

Location of mobile phone transmitters - an answer by bod43
Hi, Following on from a recent discussion on mobile broadband signal strength I thought that some of you might like this. http://www.sitefinder.ofcom.org.uk/ Ofcom seem to provide maps showing the location of all mobile phone transmitters. This might be useful when trying to determine from which window to dangle the dongle.

Mobile broadband by J B
I'm considering the purchase of a 'holiday home' in North Wales. Morfa Bychan near Porthmadog. I know nowt about mobile BB as I'm quite happy with my plusnet service at home. The guy in the computer shop in Porthmadog recommended 'Three' as if all else fails they will 'roam' on another network to get a signal. Is that true? I switched my Orange phone to the UTMS setting there and it said 'no...

Changing ISP smoothly.. by The Natural Philosopher
Ok, time to bite the bullet and get rid of a load of legacy junk. Currently I have two phone lines, one of which has broadband, and whose number I do not want to keep. The other does not, and I would like broadband on that with a new supplier. I run various domains hosted on my own (internal) web server. I manage a few sites who will reject me unless I am on my old IP

3Network mobile broadband addressing and routing by James Egan
I am a bit puzzled by one or two 3mobile broadband issues and was hoping someone might be able to explain it for me. In particular I was wondering about port forwarding on my HSDPA/UMTS router and whether or not it would work. The three.co.uk website actually has a "how to" for setting up port forwarding on a Huawei D100 router so I guess it's supposed to work but I don't know how. I was...

I need a new modem/router by Dave Saville
I have just been upgraded to 21CN and ADSL2+. My Zyxel P660R-61C does not like to play ball and gives dreadful sync rates. I have dropped from 8m to 3.5 :-( So I need a new one. Googling around there do seem to be problems with Zyxels in general (and almost anything really). I was steered towards Billion, but they can't handle multiple WAN addresses (I have 8). I don't need a bult in switch...

sky netgear wifi query - help please by Sgt Pepper
I have a Sky Netgear router, which works fine - except for wifi linking with my Dell Inspiron laptop. I can get the Dell internal wireless connection to work with various routers, but not the Sky one. I've even tried switching off encryption altogether. It attemps to make a connection - but just keeps dropping. My brother and a friend have exactly the same problem with their...

How to offer broadband without phone call charges? by Anthony R. Gold
I'd like to offer to some young college boys who are sharing their first flat a DSL Internet connection but without exposing myself to vast phone call charges. The boys all have their own mobile phones and they say they don't need any wire line phone service. What phone service or tariff is available that will provide the needed copper circuit for DSL but without unlimited exposure to calling...

Linksys router changed language??? How to fix? by Tony Mountifield
My parents have a Linksys WAG54GS router which they have had for a long time. Today, they called me to say their Internet had gone down (Talktalk). When I asked them to go into the router at, after they entered the router username and password correctly, the admin pages all came up in French! This is bizarre, because only recently I was in there and it was in English as it...

Sky increase from 16Mb to 20Mb by Abo
I get 12-13Mb at the moment; am I likely to see a proportional increase when Sky do the upgrade, or are they just in effect raising a speed cap and I'm already at the maximum for my line?

2Wire/BT 2700HGV Icons change by Burton Bradstock
Strange... I was checking the Device List on my 2700, and the mouse cursor passed over the Voice Network icon on the Summary page. The icon 'blued out' in to a TV shape, then a fresh icon appeared in its place. AFAICS all the icons on the System page have changed to new ones. Software appears to be the same as it was, version
