BT Hub fire by MB[_2_]
Just been told about someone whose new BT Home Hub caught fire. Not sure of what type, it was described as having two antenna but I thought my Home Hub 6 was the last type and that has no external antenna? It seems it was supplied with a 24 volt Wallwart but should have been a 12 volt one. I looked at my Home Hub 6 and the power socket is just marked "POWER" with no voltage indicated. ...

Flat Cat5 cables question by Murmansk
I'm thinking of getting one of those flat Cat5 cables that are like a ribbon rather than circular in cross section but I'd want to chop the plug off at one end and wire it to a socket. Do the cores have the same colour coding as a standard cable? If not, guess I could work out what goes where with a continuity tester but I'd rather not have to.

Wifi adaptor will not run at link speed higher than about 6 Mbps by NY
I have a Windows 7 laptop with a built-in Broadcom 802.11n adaptor. I am connecting it to a TPLink W9980 router which is set to 2.4 GHz only (ie not 2.4 and 5 mixed) in 11bgn mixed mode. The laptop is reporting (eg in Control Panel | Network and Internet | Network Connections | Wireless) a link speed of around 5.5 - 6.5 Mbps, despite being very close to the router. I have tried permutations...

Just got a new Dell Inspiron laptop. That is by definition to be used for travelling. However I have already run foul of the dreaded Windows 10 (Home) automatic updates.

FTTP Install by Vir Campestris
The bad news: When we moved in BT promised FTTC by Christmas. That was 3 1/2 years ago. It still hasn't happened. The good news - we can now get FTTP instead. 330Mbit and now I can laugh at the people who post 60MBit rates :) Does anyone know what this involves? I gather the ISP will supply a fibre modem, but I suppose I'll need a firewall/switch/access point for my internal network. How...

Port translation (for SMTP) (further to: Orange e-mail is closing) by Allan
I've got a legacy Windows software programme (Caller ID) that sends e-mail alerts. It send e-mails via SMTP and seems to be hard-coded to use port 25. I've tried specifying the SMTP address as smtp.gmail.com:587 to no avail. The software producers are no longer in business either (I suppose I could look round for a newer programme). I've got a new gmail account to replace my old...
