Plusnet Regrade Question by Gareth :-\\\) voom
Hi, Paid Plus 14.99 yesterday to regrade my line from 1Mb to 2Mb as a BT engineer was at our house and confirmed the line conditions would support 2Mb. I only paid 14.99 yesterday and received an email to say 5-7 days to be processed. I noticed this evening that my router speeds have changed from 1Mb to 2272Kbps. So I assume something has been done at my exchange. The only problem is my speed...

Speedtouch 330/cabling question by Pidgeonpost
Apologies if this has been asked before, but wonder if someone can help with a query on this please. A neighbour has recently signed up to Virgin broadband and the package includes a thomson Speedtouch 330 modem. Connection fails with a 'no dial tone' message, although a continuous dial tone is present. The USB led on modem is solid green, but ADSL led flashes green, which I reckon (from...

Demon Home 2mb? by Peter P
Seems OK for 19.99 pm, and according to the website, it's unlimited. Can't get hold of their customer services to confirm this (seems doubtful) but does anyone have any direct experience or knowledge please? Quite keen to sign up, but not if ther's some kind of hidden cap or speed restriction. Thanks - Peter

Broadband routers by Cullen Skink
Do broadband routers have a bb modem built in? Was watching one on ebay and it said you needed a modem as well for the actual internet connection. Is that normal? Can anyone recommend a low cost but decent bb router with modem included? Also I've read connecting it via Ethernet is the best. Does that just mean I stick a network card in the PC and connect the router to that? tia

Belkin surge protector worked, sort of. by Real Ale
Well, we had a direct lightening strike on the house this morning, still recovering. Luckily the AGA steel chimneys made a good conductor. Wasn't expecting the phone or adsl to work and sure enough all lines were dead. Amazingly the Belkin had blown but had protected the phones and router in doing so ! So they can be of use, w_tom :), but I'll have to get another one, I'll try claiming on...

Best ADSL Deal inc phone line by Basil Fawlty
Hi, Friend of mine has no internet access. He's no connected phone line either. There is a physical line into the house, presumably a BT line. He obviously has no use for a phone line for voice calls, so they don't matter. He wants broadband/ADSL. Which is the best way to arrange this? Best way I see is getting the phone line reconnected, paying the cheapest BT line rental possible and then...

Wanadoo wireless broadband router incompatibilities???? by Euclid
I am trying to upgrade to an ADSL wireless router connection from the current Wanadoo USB modem with a BT voyager 2100 and a PCI 54g adapter. When I replace the USB modem and connect the Voyager to the line instead, it won't train up - the DSL light just keeps on flashing, but the wireless connection works perfectly. When I test the Voyager in another location with a different ISP it...

PlusNet BB+ / F2S 8Mb by SparkysDream
My 12 month contract with pipex is nearly up. I am currently paying 23.44 for 1MB (no cap), but considering that I only use 6 or 7GB a month it is kinda expensive. I am after something with: Monthly contract with no migration fee Reliable 2MB connection Decent speeds for xbox live gaming Half decent newsgroups (binary optional but an advantage) I have been looking at F2S for 19.99 with 10Gb...

Tesco broadband -- puzzling ADSL availability. by David G. Bell
According to the Tesco Broadband signup system (at www.tesco.com), ADSL isn't available at this phone/location. According to BT's checker, accessed from www.adslguide.org.uk, Broadband _is_ available from this line. Tesco, when contacted, gave me a confused explanation involving Datastream, IPStream, and BT Wholesale doing something rather dodgy about providing different ADSL signals. But...

Plusnet satisfaction by David Bradley
There is no doubt that I have read more about PlusNet on this newsgroup than I would ever wish to know; it almost seems that the entire universe rates this ISP as the best thing since sliced bread. OK some heavy users have been made to jump ship but I also reckon there is a heavy churn rate of other users, whose bandwidth requirements are way below the radar, that have gone to pastures new,...

ADSL Modem/router/wireless 802.11a? by Tony Mountifield
Does anyone know of an all-in-one ADSL Modem/router/wireless that does 802.11a (5GHz) as well as 11g and 11b? So far I've found b/a/g access points and b/g ADSL routers, but not both in one unit. A Linksys WAG55AG would be ideal, but I don't think it exists (I just made it up according to the rules they seem to use). Cheers

Sorry Should have been in last post! by John Scott
If you're broadband is with Blueyonder and you're out of your 12 months tie-in period, ring them up and tell them that you're thinking of cancelling because Bulldog broadband are offering you a better deal. The chances are that they'll give you a free upgrade like they did for me and half of my office.

France Telecom 'planning C&W bid' by {{{{{Welcome}}}}}
France Telecom is preparing a 4bn ($7.3bn; 5.9bn euro) takeover bid for communications giant Cable & Wireless (C&W), the Sunday Telegraph has said. The French firm hopes to consolidate its UK interests, such as mobile phone operator Orange, and merge its internet business Wanadoo with C&W's Bulldog. A tie-up would also give France Telecom greater access to the lucrative parts of the...
