Can I route from incoming WAN1 to outgoing WAN2 on a Vigor 2820n? by Chris Green
I have a Draytek Vigor 2820n with standard ADSL on WAN1 and a Plusnet Hub One (with its own phone line) on WAN2. I would like to be able to get at the Plusnet Hub One's web configuration from 'outside'. It doesn't allow this by itself (or at least don't think it does, please tell me if it does) so I was thinking would it be possible to route a connection coming in on WAN1 to connect to the...

VDSL2 router recommendations wanted by Chris Green
Following on (sort of) from my recent thread about access to a Plusnet Hub One I'm probably looking for a VDSL2 router to replace it. So my requirements a- Reasonable price, probably sub 100, preferably down in the 60 area. Thus Draytek are probably ruled out. Good WiFi performance, currently I get good cover through a large house with a Draytek Vigor 2820n and a...

Sky Now TV 10 box compatible with Talk Talk broadband? by Adrian C
Ordinarily I wouldn't touch either Sky or Talk Talk with a bargepole, but I'm trying to avoid some folks vunerable getting a TT YouView box and finding their existing TT broadband/phone contract extended and inflated because of that, when primarily they will just about be able to cope with the BBC iPlayer interface and the settings of TV guide recordings would confuse them. So, does that...

LAN/WAN question Draytek Vigor 2820n router by Chris Green
I have a venerable (well, it is quite old) Draytek Vigor 2820n router which has been load balancing our two ADSL lines quite happily for a few years. The 2820n has it's LAN set up on the 192.168.1.x subnet and the WAN connection was to a BT Home Hub3 on a separate subnet with the 2820n being and the HH3 being That worked fine and the 2820n did basic load...

Virgin cable/phone query by Tim+[_2_]
Our street is currently getting cabled by Virgin. We're currently on FTTP with Plusnet for BB and anytime calls but due to an intermittently bad line, I feel that our connection just isn't living up to my expectations. We have unlimited bb and seem to be be paying quite a lot for it. (40.97pm) I'm wondering about going with Virgin on a "broadband only" basis and using VOIP for calls on their...

Post Office Broadband by AnthonyL
My sister is being quoted a high renewal price for the BT broadband + rental that she's had for as long as I remember. Some 100+ more per year than I'm paying for the same deal - standard broadband, unlimited, weekend calls. The Post Office are offering a competitive 18 month deal, but reviews are less than stellar. Plusnet seem to review better and I beleive there's someone who keeps half an...

Noticeable increase in ADSL speed after FTTC upgrade ? by Abandoned Trolley
Apologies in advance - I will be surprised if this subject is new to this (or any other) newsgroup, but my search tool was unable to find any existing thread dealing with it. I was just wondering if those of you using ADSL services had noticed any increase in download speeds after your local cabinet was upgraded to fibre ? hmmm... I thought not Thats clearly because you have not paid for...

Slow BT Option 1 Broadband in West Sussex by Andrew[_2_]
Hi I'm on BT Option 1 and I have never used the BT Hub that they sent me back in about 2006 because I already had a 3Com router 3CRWDR100 with all my settings so I just carried on using it. The ADSL logs generally showed a download speed of about 8 Meg but suddenly in the last couple of days I have noticed that it is getting really slow. TV catchup is impossible and web sites with heavy...

Ofcom plans instant payback for broadband woes by Java Jive
"Customers would be entitled to automatic compensation, without having to go through a potentially lengthy and difficult claims process," the regulator said. They would receive either a cash payment or a credit on their bill, with the level of payments set by Ofcom. The proposed scale of charges would be: 10 for each calendar day that the service is not repaired

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...
