At present I am on dialup and...

Is Sky Netgear DG834GT locked? by bod43
Hi, 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.

Pigeon 'faster than broadband' by DB.
A Durban IT company pitted an 11-month-old bird armed with a 4GB memory stick against the ADSL service from the country's biggest web firm, Telkom. Winston the pigeon took two hours to carry the data 60 miles - in the same time the ADSL had sent 4% of the data. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/8248056.stm -- DB.

Where does this 80% come from. by Lawrie
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...

Adding Email Addresses by DW
I have a Sky.com email address and would like to know if it is possible to have additional Sky.com addresses created and added to the account so that they can be deleted if necessary at a later date because of spam etc. I can't find anything about this when looking at Skys email pages. Thanks. DW

atm traffic occuoies all the bandwidth by Ilir
The adsl modem is synchronized but no pppoe session is initialized by modem. And what I see is that all the bandwidth between the modem and DSLAM is occupied by ATM traffic. This makes the log on procedure almost impossible. Does anyone know where does all this traffic come from and how it can be minimised?

BT out of the picture for fast broadband? by Bob Smith
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...

DNS problem West Midlands..? by Ivor Jones
Since around 2330 last night I've been unable to view any web pages, get any mail and none of my VoIP lines are working. I suspect a DNS problem but this router (AVM Fritz!Box) doesn't permit setting of any alternatives. I'm getting sync with the exchange and also an IP address but can't do anything. Has anyone here experienced a problem using Orange (or whatever they're called this week) in...

anyone know anything about voip and sipgate? by 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 - PSTN...
