Fantastic BT offer! by Charles Unt
I had a rather interesting phone call from BT last evening about their broadband offerings. After explaining that I was very happy with my ISP and GBP 14.40 a month charge, the BT droid insisted that he could give me broadband cheaper. When pressed he stated GBP 7.99 per month with an 18 month contract. I of course said how long before the real cost applies and he said that the 7.99 was for...

What does this malicious website do? by Peter
A number of internet forums have recently been hacked. One of them got hacked and the HTTP code included a link to this http://nextgirl.cn/promo/index.php The way the redirection was implemented (not a detail I understand) was picked up my Kaspersky AV, which is fine, but they never replied to my email asking them what the target site actually did to one's PC.

BT versus O2 Broadband by Lynn W
Just want to clarify with everyone that I have got this right. If I swap from BT Broadband to O2 I will still have to pay Line Rental to BT. So in essence my charges from O2 would be 9.79 for the Premium account plus the BT Line Rental per month. Lynn

Three Broadband and Windows 7 by SantaUK
Hi folks I got 3 mobile Broadband a few months ago on the 5 gig a month contract. All was well in the land of XP. Got a new laptop with Windows 7, so I thought there would be no issues. After I installed the usual software, which incidentally, is the updated drivers for Windows 7 - it seemed to go okay, for about two minutes. The whole system just froze. I have tried for days, and the...

BBC iPlayer via wii by John Geddes
A quick plug for the new "BBC iPlayer Channel" now available as a free (zero-points) download from the wii Shop channel. For anyone with a wii in the living room, a Broadband connection (with plenty of Gb/month) and a wireless router, this now offers a very convenient way of accessing iPlayer from the settee.

IDC Connections by Jeff Gaines
Is it acceptable to put more than one wire into one IDC connector? I want to wire in some extensions to the removable part of an NTE5. If so is the correct technique to add them one at a time. e.g. punch first one in then second one on top of first? If BT have used a couple of wires in the main incoming cable to take the signal back to an extension is it acceptable to connect those 2 wires to...

PlusNet goes from bad to worse! by Vet Tech
My Plusnet connection drops from 5300Kbps in the morning to 270 Kbps between 4pm and 8pm every day. I'm paying 15 per month ( under one of their old premium packages) so I reckon they are taking money under false pretenses.

Using own router on BE broadband? by Vet Tech
I am considering switching to BE there. BE apparently supply their own modem/router and a set-up CD. Does this mean it's hard-wired in a particular way and that I couldn't use my own Netgear unit instead?

How does Google Mail classify spam emails? by [email protected]
A lot of my emails end up in peoples' gmail spam boxes. Spam classification has been a persistent problem although I have never found my IP in any of the many blacklists. I know my domain (peter2000.co.uk) is used by spammers a lot in forged headers but so are countless others and no spam filter should work on the domain name but on the IP. Also my emails should not have obvious spam...

Any reason I shouldn't be with BE ? by Eeyore
As regulars here will know I've been very pleased with the service provided by Idnet but a recent offer from BE for their 'value' service has made me consider them. It's a 8Mbps service, as I understand it still ADSL2+ but capped at 8Mbps. For a 12 month sign up at 6.75 p.c.m. ( half the normal price ) you get 'unlimited downloads' and a free 4 port router with wireless 802.11g too. Offer...

How long does a MAC code take? by Philip
I've asked my current supplier for a MAC code and they've advised me that it takes up to 5 days. I had an idea that it was usually a lot faster, and I've read of people receiving them in a matter of hours... Any thoughts?

ANY GOOD: Thomson 585 wireless router by Paul
I'm in the UK. I've got cable broadband at home and want to switch to ADSL broadband. The ISP will provide a Thomson 585 v7 wireless router. Is it a low grade fault-prone unit which should be replaced. Or it is half decent? My needs are straightforward:

Restricted access to news servers. by Michael Chare
In the recent past I have often had difficutly downloading new neswgroup message headers. My PC does not get a response from any of the news servers that I normally use. This happens both with my ISP's news server (nntp.dsl.pipex.net) and servers such as Microsoft Communities (msnews.microsoft.com), and often occurs in the morning and afternoon. Access to web pages at this time is generall...
