Wireless addition by David Bradley
I have a Draytek 2600plus but find that a planned additional PC is located where the effort to install fix wiring would be massive task. A possible solution would be a HomePlug Ethernet Adapter system, but the end user feedback on this type equipment seems to be rather negative. So it's going to be wirless, however even that is not going to be all that straightforward. I could simply throw money...

I still get disconnected from ADSL (Griffin) by Peter Hill
Hello again, even when changing Lease times etc, each of the PC's on my LAN are disconnected from ADSL if the relevant PC is left idle for any length of time. I, and others, think the Router is causing this. It is likely that it is some setting I have done, so here are the settings as they are, hopefully something will be glaringly obvious: I use a D-Link DSL-604T Router, 1 PC hard wired, 3...

Tiscali have removed the 1Mb (30GB useage) option from their offerings - they seem to be going down with their service every week. At this rate they`ll be back to 'dial-up-only' soon.

Hi All, My exchange has recently been enabled and I have gone with Wanadoo at the 1M connection speed. It's working fine and I am happy with 1M.

Telecom/Broadband Provider by Rhino
Hi, I've just moved into a newly built flat and BT have informed me that they will charge £75 to install a new phone line even though there are already BT branded sockets in the flat. I do not live in a cable activated area and was wondering which other companies offer landlines for me to use to connect to ADSL and how much they charge for installation. I'm not bothered about call charges as I...

Plusnet's 2mb/s is slower then it's 512 kb/s connection and being5.5 times slower then Pipex - why? by Dee
I migrated yesterday from Pipex 512 kb/s to PlusNet's 512kb/s (Plus option for £14.99 per month) with an order to regrade to the fastest possible speed. I can log into the intrnet with both pipex and plusnet ID's and Passwords yesterday both ISP's were working for me and I'd say PlusNet was a little quicker then Pipex at 512 kb/s I just got home and see I'm now connected at 2 mb/s and...

1mb: Line length or SNR/ATT, which is more important to BT? by [email protected]
Hi, Do BT's presumptions about line length take precedence over the actual results when it comes to getting an upgrade? Can I request that the ISP submits the request manually, and that BT send out an engineer to do a calibrated line test if they aren't prepared to give it a try on the basis of the ISP's remote woosh test? ISP wooshed my equipment yesterday and the line appears to be...

Disconnects by [email protected]
A few days ago I installed a Speedtouch 330 and converted my dial up to ADSL. It all went seamlessly and was up and running in minutes. No problems apart from disconnects whenever I stop using the connection for a few minutes. What's the likely cause? --

Netgear DG834 v2 by Pete.
Anyone have any speed problems with the Netgear DG834 router? Got one the other day, but even when I'm the only computer connected to it I can only get about 30KB/s from the net. When I connect with the BT USB modem it gives me a steady 55kB/s. I have e-mailed Netgear, but they are slow replying. I am on a 512k BT Yahoo DSL line if that makes any difference. Thanks, Pete.
