I've just read this on the Zen board at ADSL Guide:
"Some premises have more RF noise (interference) than others. Where this
is a problem, the usual answer is a filtered placeplate with a short
Cat5 cable to a nearby router, so the RF interference pickup is
Lots of people haven't seen any adverse effects from this in the past
because 512k is remarkably tolerant of poor signal...

| || || | Line still syncs after cancellation
I cancelled adsl on a line a few weeks ago but the router still syncs with
the line. No connection is possible but obviously the line is still enabled.
Do BT just leave the line in this state or does it revert to a normal
analogue line later. If it is left as it is do filters need to be left in

Just moved from a 2mb Telewest Cable connection to 2mb(upgradeable to 4mb)
ADSL with Plusnet.
Transition went fine and I'm happy with networks, etc. Could anyone point me
to a site that explains all the 'technical' stuff about ADSL modem i.e. what
SNR levels, Line attenuation mean and what to expect.

| || || | Broadband connection problem with two different routers
I've been trying to diagnose a problem with a customer's Dlink DSL-G604T
router which fails to connect to his newly-activated line.
The ISP says that as far as they can tell, the line has been activated for
several days. However they are doing a full line test right now.
In the meantime, can I check that my deductions are correct:
- I've confirmed both with the ISP (Wanadoo) and with Dlink...

My old Dad has subscribed to Telewest's Blueyonder service because he
just likes surfing the Web. He's not very computer savvy though and
he's getting a recurring problem which blocks his Internet access.
Every now and again, for no apparent reason, the LAN setting in the
Connections dialogue of Internet Explorer will set itself to use a
proxy and that proxy will be a Freeserve one.

I'm considering switching to Bulldog's "[email protected]

How can one email Plusnet? Even as a 'guest' login, the contact page is

cannot ask a technical question upon which signing with them may depend.
Why not ask your question here?

Close lightning destroyed the cordless phone at the weekend, now looking

One of the Belkin range seems ok for mains / BT telephone sockets

... Or perhaps the ADSL part of the faceplate and / or the router have inbuilt

| || || | Use of an additional broadband router with bt broadband
I have a bt broadband account using the modem supplied by BT, an
Alcatel Speedtouch. I wanted another broadband modem/router to use on
the computer upstairs when the computer downstairs was switched off, so
purchased a Mercury ETEC modem router.
I thought (famous last words) all I would have to do was hook the thing
up, enter my username and password, and it would connect through to BT.

I did a Google groups search and only found 1 thread (2 postings) for

months in advance.
Anyone able to comment on this ISP?
