DSL lead pinout by 317
'cuse me for butting in, but; Are all router modems using the same dsl lead (pins) and if so which carry the 2 wire signal. My stock lead has all 6 wires terminated both end so I can't see. I want to break in to the dsl feed by building an rj11 socket to plug filter and plug this into my router. Much obliged.

Contention - Who do you contend with? by JPG
We are a business located on a business park. Our 1MB Star.net connection is suffering pings of nearly a second to UK sites. Our business 20:1 contention ratio may be the problem - are we likely to share with other businesses on the park, whose internet use may be similar to ours (2Gb/day)? Our previous kilostream link (128kb/s) was much quicker but much more expensive. Would we be better...

Moving (again) by Chris Hills
Just over a year ago I moved from one house to another. At the old house I transferred the contract to another household member, and started a new contract at the new place. Since then, the old contract has been cancelled. I now want to move back and resume Telewest service there, but still leave a Telewest service where I am currently, due to there being others in the household. What do you...

Line loss checking prior to adsl by Alan
Is there any way to check line loss figures etc on my line prior to my exchange getting enabled in a couple of weeks time. I have an adsl router but assume it cant give me that info until the line is enabled? The reason I want to check is that whilst I am less than a km from the exchange the last 250 m from the road is via underground cable through farming land!! It is exposed in a few...

Netgear WG311T (PCI) wireless adaptor - minimum service pack for Windows 2000 by Martin Underwood
I have a customer whose PC is running Windows 2000 Service Pack 1. Does anyone know whether the WG311T (which supports W2K) has any minimum service pack requirements? The Netgear web site and the data sheets just say "Windows 2000" without specifying whether it requires upgrade to a given service pack. Also, do I understand their web site correctly? To get WPA encryption, you need the...

AOL and configuring a Router by David Bradley
I was called into a friends home to get his router up and running having decided to sensibly to ditch his USB ADSL modem. Not sure of the precise settings to use in the router for AOL, a call to their help desk proved particularly frustrating with virtually no advice being given for the generic settings to use. A typical response being that routers were not supported and that the manufacturer...

ATA recommendations by Andrew Gabriel
Looking for recommendations for an ATA to install in parents' house where I will manage it remotely. Should provide POTS feedthrough so they continue using all their current handsets pretty much as they do now, with BT callerid. Would also like direct IP to IP calling. I have been recommended the SIPRA 3000. I couldn't see any mention of direct IP to IP calling in its spec though, and I found a...

Domain registrations... by Peter M
https://portal.plus.net/features/domains.shtml shows the fees payable for various TLDs. Did not see .info but since they can be registered for $2.99 (they were free for a few months) and a .com/org/net can be had for under $10 (that's under 7 quid) it does seem a lot to charge 79.00 +VAT. I know registering a domain isn't something which Plus.Net considers 'core business', but whether for...

Sync Speed = IPStream product ? by Mark Carver
My in-laws currently have a Pipex Solo 250k account. I noticed recently that their router sync speed increased from 576k to (from memory) 2272k. I assume BT have connected them at the fastest speed their line will support. For the purposes of free migration can I assume that they are connected currently to an 'IPStream 2000' product ? --

Tiscali to Plusnet - I want to move by Geoff
Ok, so I'm currently with Tiscali on their 512k package, although they were supposed to upgrade my package to 1mbit in March, it turned out to be a sour grapes deal that wasn't all it was cracked up to be, so I now want to move to Plusnet as I understand they offer an Unlimited 1mb service (something Tiscali promised me but never delivered). Whats the procedure for doing the move? And how...

Price for installing microfiltered face plate by Adam Piggott
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Hiya, A customer is having their ISDN line converted back to analogue so that they can order ADSL. I'd like the BT engineer to install a microfilmer into the master socket to save having to buy a squillion microfilters as said customer has rather a lot of telephone sockets about the house.

netmeter by Mike NG
The red lines are for downloads. green for uploads, but what is yellow for? I guess it is related to authentication, but I seem to get periods where this goes on for a while. I end up disconnecting the connectoid as it looks abnormal, although ZoneAlarm isn't reporting anything abnormal, but do I need to be concerned? I have an internal Alcatel PCI modem which is the only machine accessing...
