| || || | Is Sky Netgear DG834GT locked?
Is a "Sky Brtoadband" Netgear DG834G likely to be locked?
Can it be unlocked without mucking about
with hardware (such as speedtouch requires)?
Any ideas as to the process?
I had a bit of a look but nothing definitive popped out.

I live quite a long way from my exchange and appear to be lucky to get about
500 kbps maximum speed.
But what really annoys me is that every time I look at getting special
offers and free broadband and that kind of thing that the companies say
apply to 80% of the country, I am told that I can't get any of these and I
have to pay a higher price. Yet I live in Wokingham, next to Reading in the...

Has BT lost te race to be a fast broadband provider? Seeing as they have
not got an infrastructure in place to provide fast broadband (I am talking
50~100 mbit or more), and looking at what they have not done to make this
happen, it looks increasingly unlikely that BT will ever be able to provide
such high speeds needed to progress the digital age any further.
My question is, when will the...

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 -
