Any experience of 256k ADSL? by Trevor Morris
I have had an intermittent new 512 kb/s ADSL service via Zen for a couple of weeks, using a Netgear DG834 ethernet router supplied by them. BT have fitted a filtered faceplate to the master socket, with no improvement. When working, downstream attenuation is 63 dB, with a noise margin from 1 to 5 dB (usually 3 dB): upstream attn. 31.5 dB, noise margin 9-11 dB (from memory). The connection...

External telephone wiring and ADSL by RolYat
I have 2 BT lines/numbers into my house .... one has ADSL enabled on it, one doesn't. I need to run both lines out to a new summerhouse in the garden, I _do not_ want to go down any wireless options (DECT, wireless networks, routers et al) I can of course run 2 separate cables from each BT Master Socket in the house (which are literally side by side) conduited along the route the cable...

ADSL and Caller ID by Clive
Before I had ADSL activated on my line my Cable & Wireless Caller ID phone (number&name) worked fine. Since ADSL It's showing no caller info. I also have a BT DECT phone with caller ID (number only) that still shows incoming numbers. Are some Caller ID phones NOT compatible with ADSL? Thanks

TalkTalk - newsgroup request by ciqret
I am a new, and currently happy, subscriber to TalkTalk broadband. However having migrated my newsreader over to the TalkTalk newserver there is one particular newsgroup I can't access any more (uk.people.consumer.ebay). I'd like to make a request that this NG is added to news.talktalk.net, but can't find anything vaguely useful at www.talktalk.net .. Any help would be appreciated.

VPN client access through a router by Martin Underwood
Am I right in thinking that most/all broadband firewall routers can pass VPN traffic (possibly with specific ports needing to be opened in the firewall) so that a VPN client on a "private LAN" PC can access a VPN endpoint on a company's server? I know that the ability of a router to act as a VPN endpoint (eg into a company LAN) is a feature that not all routers have, but nothing special is...

Netgear DG834G - setting up emailing of logs to an AOL address by Martin Underwood
Here's a really stupid question. How do you set up this router to email its logs to an AOL address? I've set loads of these routers to send to other addresses via other SMTP servers, but I can't make it work to AOL. Email address screen Outgoing email server SMTP.uk.aol.com I've tried with authentication disabled and with it enabled using the user's screen name and...

What is happening here???? Any ideia????? by Carlos Arruda
Hello. I just went to a friends house to check on a problem he had (still has) on his wireless network. He's got a netgear wireless router (don't know the model) it looks really fancy and its a perfect match for a mac pc, the NICs he's ussing are from netgear as well. While ussing the router's DHCP server the wireless network card on his PC gets the following settings;

Ebuyer Router Problem by aa
I recently set up my (non-techie) sis / bil with broadband from PlusNet. SamKnows website indicates a 2Mb speed should be possible, though BT found the signal at the house was half a db over their official threshold for 2Mb. Long story short, the c2Mb connection was patchy so BT reduced speed of connection to 1Mb. They were and still are using an 'Ebuyer 1 Port SPI Firewall Combo Ethernet...

Netgear DG834G V2 - intermittently no lights, cannot ping router by Martin Underwood
A customer of mine has a Netgear DG834G V2 router which is connected to AOL. Intermittently (it's happened three or four times in two months) the router stops working. It displays no lights on the front panel - not even the power LED - and it becomes totally uncommunicative - you cannot even ping it. It needs to be unplugged from its power supply and left for about 1 minute; after this, it works...

Woo! 1mb, 11km line. by [email protected]
No mains water or electricity (and Screwfix/Lynx have lost the dedicated DC-AC inverter I ordered to power the router 24/7)... but 1mb broadband! Over 11km from the exchange, now syncing at 1152000, a second or two after the router initialises (as quick as 512) and the connection hadn't dropped for 12 hours after the regrade (must have been around 3 am this morning), before I rebooted. Appears...

Is 512kb more stable? by simon
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 minimised. 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 by JA Paul
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 place? --
