| || || | Any good 8-port LAN ADSL2+ routers with VPN?
I have Demon Business Broadband, and a mix of wired and wireless devices.
To reduce energy costs I'd like to replace the Netgear DG834N router
with one that offers the following additional features:
1. 8 LAN ports instead of 4
2. A printer port and print server facility
3. Ability to filter remote access by MAC address (instead of just IP
4. Wireless, ADSL

The Natural Philosopher
Trying to rationalise my systems here which will involve much messing
around with ISPs, BT and the like and would like to use a second phone
using VOIP..connected to my nice PABX.
Now it seems that various boxes need to be put between the LAN and the
PABX to turn VOIP into analogue phone, but I am terribly confused.
I understand the need for registering with someone who has a VOIP -

| || || | Sky Broadband
I am on dial up but will be applying for the Sky base broadband package this
week as it will be cheaper than what I am currently paying.
This limits me to 2GB download a month which I can't see myself exceeding
BUT what would happen if I did. Would Sky send me a warning email when I
got near the limit or what ?

| || || | VoIP/Router Question
I have been using VoIP for some time. My last Router/ATA was giving
troubles so I have changed to a Thomson Speedtouch 716W.
It is working perfectly except for one little anomaly. Instead of a
dialling tone I am getting NU (a high pitched continuous tone). Both the
phones running off the router are the same and both gave a normal
dialling tone before. Using a softphone, I can hear a...

Did anyone experience some kind of weird outage? Affected several of our
clients around the country at around 10.50am.
Strangest thing I've ever seen, from Warwickshire to West Midlands.
Possibly mainly just affected Eclipse.
But I've scoured all the forums and can't find anything.

Have 3 changed the system with these, sure it is well over 30 days since
I added my last top-up but it still seems to be working.
I wonder if they have responded to the Vodaphone top-up that does not
expire after 30 days?

This year I want to move up from dial up to Sky's broadband which will be
quicker and cheaper than what I am currently paying.
However, over the years I have been happy with dialup, Pop3 access etc and
only occasional connection problems.
I want control and I currently connect to the Internet by manually clicking
the connect button. I have visions of inserting the Sky broadband CD and...

Does BT Vision work over an standrad ADSL connection and how good or crap is

I used to be able to browse to other computers on my LAN to copy files
and folders, except now I can't. My Computer and clicking 'View
workgroup computers' just produces a bong error noise. My Network
Places is also empty. I can ping, print to a LAN printer, use the
internet, email and etc..
The problem only seems to be a problem on this one PC.
Anyone know what might be wrong?

We couldn't fault the phone side of XLN Telecom (it's good), but
the broadband when we signed up for it was awful. The speed
promised was "*UP TO* 8Mb broadband speed". Note the "up to" bit,
that's their disclaimer. Right from the start it crawled and that
was when it was working, which for the most part it didn't. When we
needed to use it we found we had to...
