Sky routers by DrTeeth
Hi, My neighbour has a Sky service. For some reason it looks like he has two routers/Wi-Fi access points judging by what I see when I use a program to show the channels on 2.4/5 GHz. Why is this? I do not have any problems with it, just curious. -- Cheers, DrT

BT Openreach predicting "In Scope" for FTTP (premises, not cabinet) by NY
If the BT Openreach fibre site https://www.homeandbusiness.openreach.co.uk/fibre-broadband/when-can-i-get-fibre for a given address reports a status of "Your area is currently in our plans to be upgraded with Fibre to the Premises (FTTP)", does that mean that *only* FTTP (to the premises) will be available, or will FTTC/VDSL also be available at a cheaper price?

Plusnet call protect seems to help by Clive Page
Just to give credit to Plusnet for once (or more probably their BT parent): I changed my Plusnet contract recently and added the Plusnet free services of call protect and also caller display. Based on a couple of weeks's experience, call protect (1572) does seem to get rid of most junk calls. We had none for two weeks then two yesterday (and just afterwards some Jehovah's Witnesses called at...

Adding an external aerial to a mifi unit by Tim+[_2_]
I have a Huawei (how the f*ck do you pronounce that?) 4G E5776 MiFi unit that I might be lending out to someone in a poor reception area. It has a tiny socket presumably for an aerial. Are there any gotcha's to choosing a suitable aerial? Any recommendations? Tim

Hyperoptic - joke offer by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
I was browsing something to do with Liverpool Lime Street station, when surprisingly an ad' for Hyperoptic appeared in the middle of the page. Normally I would have disregarded it, but given their infant pet troll posts on this group and it said fibre broadband for 19 per month I decided to click on it, which soon gets you to he - https://www.hyperoptic.com/price-plans/?broadbandonly it...

Point to point wireless by Theo[_2_]
If I want to make a wireless link of about 500m through a typical residential environment, but which can't do line of sight, is there anything I could do? The land is flat, but LOS goes obliquely through about 6 houses so seems like a non-starter. There's nowhere suitable to install a reflector - it might just be possible to get reflections off existing objects, but it'll be two or three deep...

They are not paying 85,000 + VAT for shiite Internet of 10gbits. May be 30/m in line with where International norms are heading.

Router will not logon to WAN after work on telephone pole by NY
My parents' internet has stopped working. I seems that some gardeners who were working next door were removing some branches that overhung the overhead mains wires from a wooden pole to the houses (theirs and the neighbour's). This pole also carries overhead phone lines. The work that they were doing involved temporarily turning off the mains to my parents' house and using winches to pull...

How to tell if you need fast Internet by 7[_2_]

Gigabit fibre - people won't buy it - a lesson for 7 by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
https://www.thinkbroadband.com/news/8110-uk-could-be-number-1-in-broadband-league-tables-rather-than-35th Quite a long article showing the methodology was badly flawed and that people are quite happy with 40/10 ADSL and won't pay a premium to go faster. So Hyperoptic, already a money pit, looks set never to find the customers it needs to break even in its cherry picked areas... 7 had better...

Windows 10 won't connect to WiFi on my Draytek router - why? by Chris Green
I have a (mostly Linux) home network with a Draytek 2860n connecting to the internet using VDSL. It all works well and much as expected. Mostly visitors using MS Windows and Android seem to connect to my WiFi OK too. However it would seem that Windows 10 (and possibly some iPhones) are failing to connect and I really can't see why. I have a Windows 10 partition on my (normally Linux) laptop...

Late in the day by DrTeeth
Hi, The main reason I have stayed with BT is so that I would be able to change my ISP on my FTTC connection without any hiccups. Is this necessary these days? I have had enough of BT and would like to move both my landlines from them. Other than my broadband issue above, can any of you recommend a good landline operator with customer service in the UK?

London touts Investors to go elsewhere to invest in Digital ----------------------------------------------------------- There is no symmetric gigabit Internet in London so investing in London is not an option to Internet entrepreneurs. They all go to France - its simple, just arrive, use Internet to find some good companies and invest. Its all free Internet in most places across the globe now.
