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,...

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
