| || || | UPnP - should this be on by default?
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?
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
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?

I am thinking of upgrading to 1Mb broadband. However I still need to have a

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...

T i m
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'...

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?
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.
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)

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.

Has anyone else had this problem? Leave the computer idle for a length of

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 : )

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?
