Crackly line but "quiet line test" seems okay by Tim+[_2_]
Been having a lot of trouble with line noise on incoming calls (from mobiles and landlines) however whenever I try the quiet line test on 17070 the line seems fine. Our broadband is also a bit flaky so I think the problem is real but I curious as to why he line test (done several times) always seem to be fine but incoming calls are frequently crackly. Could it be due to the fact that I'm...

Plusnet, and NTE5 by Flowerpotgirl
Was visiting a 77 year old today, she is part way through completing a "house move process" with plusnet. She asked me to look at her wiring for her. her phone is supposed to go live tomorrow, but her main phone socket looks like a NTE5 but has no port for the phone cable, the bottom half is just a blank. It is hanging from the wall by four wires, white, black, orange and green. From the...

Orange closing e-mail: POP and SMTP? by Allan
As reported in uk.diy and uk.telecom.broadband, Orange are closing their e-mail in May 2017 http://preview.tinyurl.com/jevzvzk http://ee.co.uk/help/mobile-and-home-connections/broadband-gallery-mobile-broadband/email/email-closure I wonder if they'll also be closing the SMTP service (as well as POP). That is going to cause some headscratching/heartache. The above info would suggest the...

DHPC settings question by Tim+[_2_]
We have lots of connected devices in our house including a Humax PVR running the custom firmware. This firmware allows us to control the PVR over our network via a browser and for this reason it's helpful to have it on a static IP address. I reserved an address in the router settings and set it up in a static address and mostly things work fine. Recently however I've been getting a lot of "IP...

Using wireless router in another location by Murmansk
Where I am now I have Plusnet broadband down my Plusnet phone line. I'm going to move into a flat where I'll not have a phone line or broadband but I'll be getting broadband from my neighbour - I'll be connecting a 20M long Cat6 cable to her router. I was planning to distribute wi-fi in my flat via a TP-Link device I have but the question occurred to me - could I just connect the Cat6 cable...

Onesies by Vir Campestris
We're getting one, so we might finally get our FTTC. They've fitted little boxes on several of the telephone poles - about as fat as the pole, a couple of feet high, tapered at the top. What are they? Andy

VDSL Multicast on ADSL line by Rodney Pont[_2_]
The BT checker says that my line will be able to get VDSL Multicast from Feb 21st 2017. The line will still only be able to get ADSL MAX. The exchange is only 20CN but there are VDSL cabinets around the villages from this exchange and lines on those can already get VDSL and VDSL Multicast. Is this a data error on my line or can they actually do VDSL Multicast on an ADSL MAX line? We do get the...

Cat5 cable - can it stand kinks? by Murmansk
Two flat in a large Victorian house - I'm planing to take a Cat5 cable from the router on floor 2 down to the flat on the ground floor via the underside of the banisters. In the lower flat it'll terminate in an RJ45 type socket and there'll be an 8 port switch. From there it'll go round to RJ45 sockets in the flat and I'll have a Sipgate VOIP account with a Cisco ATA wired to the phone...

Networking problem in Win 10: active IPV6 stack prevents IPV4 DHCP working by NY
A friend's Windows 10 PC, connecting to his TalkTalk DSL-3780 router by wireless, is failing to be allocated an IP address by DHCP if IPV6 is enabled in addition to IPV4. No IPV6 address is listed in ipconfig, in place of an IPV4 one. The symptom is that ipconfig gives a 169.x.x.x address instead of a 192.168.1.x address. If I set IPV4 to use a static IP, subnet mask and gateway in the...

Ultra fast broadband FTTP by www.GymRatZ.co.uk
A recent flurry of BT Fibre activity in the street that passes our shop got me thinking Fibre is coming my way... The area is already FTTC for most users but a lot of us are on EO lines so no cigar... Dumped Cable many years ago as it became useless after the Virgin takeover from Telewest/Blueyonder days (for me at least). Boxes are appearing on top of telegraph poles with fibre coils...
