| || || | Belkin 802.11g 54Mb Wireless ADSL router
Just after some advice. I have had a Belkin ADSL wireless router here on
my desk for about a year running smoothly. Following advice from this
group I changed the firmware to that released by SMC Networks.
I have noticed over the past few weeks that the router is getting very
hot. It still works but the heat coming out of it seems to have increased.
On top of that if I leave the...

T i m
I was talking to a friend who had recently gone to BB with BT over
They asked if it was right they had to click on the 'Connect' thing
every time and I thought not. I typed them through various setting
(over MSN) but we couldn't find anything that seemed to automate the
process (ie you click on IE and it sparks up the BB)?

| || || | Always-On Mythology
Why is broadband described as "always-on"? It's as much as always-on
as a dialup connection is if you leave the modem powered and don't drop
When I power up my computer, I turn on my Netgear router. It connects
to my broadband provider and logs on using my username and password.
How is that different to a modem connection? OK there's no dialing and
I suppose thats a few seconds saved....

| || || | 2mb upgrade woes - LONG
I live in a small village less them 1km away from the exchange, and
have been enjoying 1mb Broadband for since October 2004.
Imagine my joy when I heard my ISP (BT YAHOO) were offering free 2mb
upgrades for everyone who could get it.
Well in March 2005 my line was upgraded and initially I was still
downloading at 1mb even though the line said 2mb; I phoned technical
support about this... A...

| || || | Datastream: Any way to find out if your exchange is enabled for it?
If you order a datastream product and the ISP accept the order and you
get an activation date does that mean your exchange is datastream
enabled? At what point does the ISP know if it is?
I only ask as my activation date of 8th June has come and gone with no
service yet. Virgin have raised a line fault ticket with BT and I'm
waiting for an engineer to call. Just wondered if it is a line fault...

I paid Plusnet £14.99 around 48 hours ago to regrade my line to 2Mb and was

Is this possible?
When mine (brooadband) was installed I was told to delete all my dialup
connection entries (against my wishes) however I have added
some since, but not used them.
Can I use them or will it confuse my computer?
Could I just plug in my telephone modem now and dial one up
(whilst still connected by my cable modem) or would I
have to disconnect the cable modem (which causes...

| || || | Demon or Eclipse
As per subject ..... for business use, unlimited. Which has the better
service/back-up of the two?
I've recently signed someone up to Eclipse, but there was a problem, and it
took 'forever' to get through to support.
Someone I was talking to on an unrelated matter then told me Demon would
have been better .....
Who would you choose?

A customer suffers failure of broadband connection after a
thunderstorm. Diagnosis shows that the ADSL modem (or ADSL
modem/router) has failed - presumably due to a surge pulse on the
phone line. After replacing the faulty device, customer usually asks
"What do I need to avoid a recurrence?"
The more readily available and affordable potential solutions appear
to be surge protected power...

| || || | Plusnet Broadband Plus question
This looks very good value at £14.99 pm, but the downside is contained
in the following:
"With Broadband Plus you can use any type of Internet services you
want. In order to ensure we deliver a high level of service, during
busy periods we will give priority to services such as web browsing and
email and a lower priority to high usage services such as downloading
and file sharing."

I am trying to sort out my internal telephone wiring before I get broadband.
The master socket is downstairs by the front door, and there are secondary

Seems I have two choices
1. To put the filter/splitter at the master socket, connect all the phones
to the phone side, and run a separate cable to my study for the broadband

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has recently subscribed/tried F2S new 8Mb
Was curious to know if they really provide around 800Kb upspeed? My
exchange is listed on their website and it says it would get enabled
around August time. So isn't it worth goin for 24.99 on a monthly
contract with no activation fees (as i will migrate) and speeds 8Mb up -
768Kb down, and not to mention that...

| || || | New to ADSL broadband, what does 'bitstream' mean?
Having fairly recently joined NTL (512k) broadband, I was told by a BT
engineer that came to remove some RFI filters from my BT line, that, my
(broadband) 'connection' in the exchange was 'bitstream' he seems to
indicate this was good?
My actual connection speed is 2.2mps, but apparently BT cap this to 512k,
which is what I pay for, it certainly seems to be lightening fast, mind you,...

I am currently with Virgin dial up and considering going to broadband
(maybe Virgin,maybe AOL,maybe uk online...) but wondered if anyone in

I mainly use Linux but still have an XP partition (just in case). I
change and upgrade to different Linux distros frequently and to get back
online I simply enter my user name, password, in and out servers...
