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...

PlusNet goes from bad to worse! by David
"Vet Tech" wrote in message ... 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.

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...

Thinking of Be Unlimited - what's the view? by Philip
I'm currently looking to leave my existing ISP (PlusNet) and head over to Be Unlimited. The two considerations I have are that they don't offer email or nntp access. I gather that they do have SMTP servers so I guess I could route my emails to gMail and pick them up from there, then send them through Be. As for nntp, that's an problem, as I don't think there are many free public nntp...

Does anyone else have problems with Orange Broadband? by [email protected]
My daughter has a broadband account with Orange. However, a fault has developed and her system does not remain connected for more than a minute or so. Other routers and cables have been tried, but all give the same results. The fault was reported to Orange over a month ago. Orange have said it's a user name/password problem, but it does connect and has occasionally downloaded an email...

ZEN warn of PHISHING mail.. by Spamtastic Spastic
Seen quite a lot relating to other ISP's but have seen some for ZEN - they are now warning of this: We are aware of phishing emails targeting customers, purporting to originate from Zen Internet. These emails have the subject: "your mailbox has been deactivated" or similar, with a file attached. Virus scanners should flag this as being infected with a Trojan virus. Zen advises that you do...

BT router error message by David
"Excessive sessions warning Error: The following devices on your network are using a large number of internet sessions. The most likely cause of this is a "blaster" type virus ....." I have run Malware, Virus checkers etc. and no problems found. This message would not go away, even after reboot of router and restart of computer. Only way to get gong again was to click " Do not show again" box.

Wireless router advice please by dfrog
I currently have BT HomeHub2 router for BT Broadband/BT Vision and PS3, and I'm struggling a bit playing Gran Turismo 5 Prologue on PS3 - I'm getting lots of 'failed to connect to host' when trying to join a race (maybe 5 fails to 1 connect sometimes). PC is wireless to router, BT Vision box and PS3 are wired (cat5). Network test on PS3 gives download speed of 6.5Mbs (ish) I have port forwarded...

EntaNet traffic shaping by Chris Davies
Has anyone else noticed that EntaNet has started traffic shaping (prioritising "interactive" traffic over "non-interactive" traffic), with a view to replacing its ALT system? I've not seen it being discussed anywhere, so just wondered if this had been slipped in under the radar. Chris

Strange BB issue by lloyd
Dad's just moved in to a property in the sticks and had an issue with line noise on PSTN, BB was fine with occasional disconnects. They changed wires on the pole and noise has gone. BB line was fine for a few weeks but now constant disconnects and downstream noise goes from +10 to -10 up and down. Downstream speeds also drop as low as 160kbps, though upstream stays constant at 400kbps. Lines all...

IS BT deliberately setting high noise margins to reduce exchangestress? by The Natural Philosopher
I ask, because having switched from line A with ISP A, gaily synching at 6dB margin and achieving 4000 synch rates, despite having noise margin reset LINE B with ISP B, is now on 12dB margin synching reliably at just over 3000Kbps..This is at the same premises. The ISP claiming that BT cant, or wont, hardwire my noise margin. I am wondering if indeed they simply cant supply adequate...
