UPnP - should this be on by default? by Shez
I'm a bit hazy as to whether uPnP just configures local network devices or whether it has implications for Internet use - on our router it's enabled by default, is there any risk to this? We have a local mail server which is only supposed to exchange mail between machines on the LAN, but I'm concerned that uPnP may cause the router to open the corresponding ports to the world at large. --...

How do ISPs make a profit? by simon
Hi, I'm with Claranet at the moment, and they claim that charging £30 for a 512Mb connection is necessary for them to maintain a reasonable profit margin. So how on earth can Plusnet offer £21 for an uncapped 2000Mb connection? Indeed nearly all ISPs are significantly cheaper than Clara. Are they storing up financial problems for the future? -- Simon

Upgrading to broadband by John Allerton
I am thinking of upgrading to 1Mb broadband. However I still need to have a dial up facility on the PC. Will a dial up connection still operate on an ASDL enabled line? Thanks John.

e-mail - Virgin Net AOL by Rupert
Anyone aware of any issues sending e-mail from Virgin Net (cp.net) to AOL - like AOL having blacklisted cp.net, for instance? One of my customers (on Virgin Net) is saying that their e-mails to AOL users aren't getting through (or being bounced). I am aware that AOL can be incredibly fussy about incoming e-mail in efforts to stop spam, but is there anyway of finding out on-the-fly which servers...

Cheapest ADSL modem for 'tests' ..? by T i m
Hi all, I popped into a mates on Sunday because he said his "(wireless) network has stopped working, Zonealarm had come up with something (don't you like that) so they removed it (?) but none of the (3) machines could get onto the internet (ahem nothing to do with Zone alarm was it then cough) ;-) I was able to connect to the router from one of the PC's, all the i/p addresses were good'...

Wanadont Deadbox by McSnet
OK, let me try to be brief! I am a mac user (OS X.3.8) and I have recently subscribed to the wireless and talk service from Wanadoo. They say they do not support mac os x but I have picked up on various threads and tutorials regarding the setting up and it is possible. The problem being I am falling at the first hurdle, the red light that rapidly flashes next to the @ symbol has not halted -...

Marginal 2Mb ADSL. Will new Router help? by Vortex
I have been using ADSL for a couple of years, with a 512 connection that has been solid as a rock. Recently regraded to 2 Mb and the connection is "marginal" (I am 6k from exchange). It's probably up 50% of the time. I really do not want to downgrade back to 1Mb or less! ISP is arranging for BT to double check things are optimised at their end. The question is are there more things I can...

User hackable linux based ADSL modem/router/wi-fi. by Ian Stirling
Currently I have a WRT54G, with an ADSL modem plugged into it. I find this very handy, as it lets me run programs on the WRT, such as esniper, to let me bid on auctions, even when all computers happen to be off. Can anyone suggest an upgrade that'd let me do it 'all in one box' ? (As the modem recently died in a powercut)

2Mb Broadband by Gareth :-\\\) voom
Just got this response from Plusnet: If BT have provided you with 1Mb then this will be the fastest speed possible on your line. Line speed is not simply decided on by distance form the exchange so the fact you are close to the exchange dores not mean you will get 2Mb. The results of BT's line tests obviously ruled out 2Mb in your case. Regards,

VOIP handsets - UK retailers by
I really like the firebox usb handset but don't want to wait for it to arrive - does anyone know if there are any UK retailer outlets in the high street where I could buy one from? If not - are there any UK highstreet shops that sell these VOIP handsets? I'd especially love a wireless one... Thanks if any of you know and could tell me : )

Tiscali broadband wireless by [email protected]
OK, I have read posts and I'm a bit confused. I currently have the normal broadband 1MB from Tiscali. Did not actually realise it was USB until it was too late, otherwise I'd be up and running by now. Q1 - do I really need those filters on every phone point? I have 4 points but only 2 filters, installed at the two phones I use the most. And will I still need them if I go wireless?

Reserving copper overlay by douthers
Help, I live on a new housing development which is served by a TPON'd local exchange @ Thornton Cleveleys in Lancashire, meaning I cannot receive a broadband service. My neighbour, a BT engineer, has a working service due to being transferred onto a copper line using an overlay. A work colleague, who lives on the same development has managed to do the same, although he claims he just signed up...
