| || || | TalkTalk Bill Change - Why???
TalkTalk used to send me a paper bill but then they changed it and sent my
bill electronically (email). I have no problem with this, I am happy for
the company to save money under the pretence of carbon footprint.
Now TalkTalk have informed me that they will no longer send me a bill but I
have to go to the trouble of logging into my account to view my bill.
What is it with telecoms...

Doesn't seem to be much in here.
After having my connection limited again on Plus Net after paying for 20
Gig on Premier but getting 12 Gig before limits are applied, I think the
time has come for me to change.
I could go with Pro, which restricts my quota access. Instead of
midnight to 4pm, it would then be midnight to 8am. Although the line is
unrestricted, it would be a new 12 month...

| || || | Another BRAS moan
What is the matter with getting BRAS upped? My rate dropped from
months at 8meg to 130K in nothing flat. Router was 130/160. Rebooted
the router which promptly synced at 448/8096 . BT tests says there are
no faults - but it will take 5 *days* to reset BRAS. :-(
What are they smoking?

I'm on Tiscali and despite the many comments I read about how dire it
is, our service has been generally pretty good all round.
Sometimes, for a brief period I have tried to browse to a page or
clicked a link and nothing has loaded and it has needed a second click
or even a third before it finally loads. This problem has been more
persistent over recent weeks, but has now resolved itself and...

| || || | BE Broadband: Applying for before BT line is ready ?
Bit of a complicated story.
Our lad is moving into student accommodation (rented house) with five of his
friends on July 1st. I'm sorting out the internet for them. They are in and
area covered by BE's LLU network.
I've contacted the present occupier, he will cease the present BT phone line
on June 18th. I spoke to BT and they will enable the line in my name from July

| || || | Best router?
Intelligent input needed
My trusty Netgear DG834G is starting to become unreliable with old
age. I live in a 1 bedroom flat (read: small) and need a router with a
built in modem and wireless G.
What are the most reliable routers at the moment?

| || || | Distance from filtered NTE5 socket to ADSL modem
I may have to relocate my ADSL modem/router. I see lots of posts
highlighting the need to place the ADSL modem/router as close as
possible to the BT master socket but I see nothing about actual
distances and the corresponding loss of performance.
Currently getting about 4.9 Mb/s and the distance between the filtered
NTE5 and the modem/router is about 4.5 metres.
I have a choice of putting it 1...

A friends BT broadband failed a few minutes after midnight on Saturday -
having failed to find anything wrong at his premises I called BT and after
about 10 minutes talking to India we deduced that there had been an upgrade
affecting the 0161 and 0208 areas amongst others. The router needed to have

I have a problem with my Compaq/HP NX9005 laptop (running XP SP2) whereby if

Just a query, is anyone in the North Holmwood/Dorking area of Surrey

I am querying this on behalf of a friend who lives in RH4 who has had no

All advice appreciated.

| || || | Idnet offer ADSL2+ at same price as Max
There are conditions which may make me consider this carefully but for
exchanges so equipped, Idnet are indeed making the above offer.
BE suggested I'd get ~ 15Mbps at my distance from the exchange but I
would need a new router of course.
Any recommendations ? Preferably good value but reliable, as my Origo
router has been. I don't need wi-fi btw.

Could someone please tell me what settings to
change in the router to make the router appear to
be working okay (all the indicator lights stay on)
but actually disable connectivity?
Nothing sinister; my partners son is misbehaving
and I don't want him to blame his mum for
disconnecting the broadband.

| || || | Wireless Router doesn't "do" PPPoA
I bought a Zoom AP+4 Router at a car boot sale (for £5, so no big deal).
When I tried to set it up, it doesn't seem to have an option for PPPoA
with User-id and password that my ISP requires. It seem only PPPoE has
the option to have a user-id and password and this is no good.
Am I missing something or have I been had?

I have just bought a mobile broadband dongle PAYG on Vodafone. The problem
is it always connects with GPRS and never 3G. As you will probably know I
cannot put up with GPRS as its like a dial-up speed.
Does anyone know if I can make the modem use 3G automatically, or is it
likely that it is choosing the only speed it has available. According to
Vodafone coverage I am right in the middle...

WHEN the British National Party win a handful of seats at the European
