DHCP reservation with VMDG280 by Chris Hills
Hi I have a virgin media router, and I have heard somebody mention that for some reason you cannot create a dhcp reservation for a mac address starting with anything except '00'. That sounds a bit fanciful, but it's the best explanation I have heard yet. I have tried posting on their forum but I have not yet had a reply. Can anyone shed any light on this?

Gaps in tones on ADSL router - question by Mike Tomlinson
I'm currently using a BT Voyager 2110 router, picked up at a car boot sale for 50p. This is quite configurable and works with the DMT utility: http://dmt.mhilfe.de/ Out of the box, the modem synced at ~13500 kbps. I've been experimenting with the telnet interface and the adslctl command to eke a bit more out of it, working to get a target SNR of 3.1dB. Any lower and

Changes to BT BRAS rates by River Tarnell
The ISP Andrews & Arnold just posted this status message regarding the way BT handle BRAS rates: In short, rather than arbitrarily restricting the download speed of ADSL lines (sometimes losing up to 1Mbps compared to the sync speed), the download speed will be the same as the sync speed, and won't take days to fix itself after the...

Anyone having problems with Google? by Deux
I've noticed lately that when I search for something on Google I'll get redirected to the US version a couple of seconds after seeing the search results I want to see. e.g. on Google Product search I search for something and see some prices in GBP, then suddenly it will redirect to the US version and I see prices in dollars. I can usually go back by changing the URL. Or if I search for an...

1Mb broadband by Deux
I have Virgin National which is an ADSL service. The speed I get is just over 1Mb (around 130KB/s). I've spoken to Virgin to ask them to upgrade me but they said I was already on something stupidly high like 10MB. They suggested it might be the distance from the exchange. I live in a fairly new (house built 10 years ago) area in an urban area. A friend who lives in a different part of down...

Advice wanted from "super kraftee" by m
Hi Mr superhelpful Kraftee Just been trying to help out a neighbour suffering from multiple disconnections (BT internet subscriber)that has been the same for ages and he is now finally fed up with it. His line loss is about 35dB but s/n was only about 3 to 4dB. Kitz says distance by road is about 3Km - which is quite a long way from Isleworth Exchange as the cable route is probably that way...

Problems reaching websites by Pete
Anyone else having problems with the internet today - it's like wading through treacle here. Pages are taking 20 - 30 seconds to load, some even timing out, so maybe some sort of DNS issue? Done a couple of speed tests which came back as normal for me, again perhaps pointing to DNS in some way?

"Managed wireless network" = 50,000 by Peter
My son's school newsletter says they need to spend 30k to 50k for the above. What on earth could this be? Surely it is a load of wifi access points, wired up to an ethernet router, etc. I wonder whether the school is being massively ripped off.

Mapping BT cabinets ? by Andrew Benham
A few months ago, as part of my general grumble about being on the only one of the 4 BT exchanges which serve my general area which doesn't currently offer FTTC, I decided to find and map the local BT PCP cabinets. This just served to rub my nose in it further, as I'm not fed from the geographically closest cabinets (they're on 2 of the other exchanges). Anyway, like Topsy the mapping has just...

How risky is it to have a web server on the internal LAN? by Peter
Take the case of a typical ADSL modem+router, doing NAT for the internal LAN, and you get a little extra subnet of IPs from the ISP and bring that subnet through the router to the internal LAN, where a web server is set up to respond to one of the extra IPs. There is no DMZ - this is all done with just one router e.g. one of the better Drayteks. So the internal LAN has some machines on...

F1 on Sky in 2012 by Peter
I note from the adverts running in the press today that F1 will be broadcast on a dedicated Sky sports channel in 2012 - Sky Sports F1 I am about to move house and plan to ditch Sky and possibly go for BT Vision. This gives me the option of taking Sky Sports1 for 12.30 per month. The adverts Sky are running state that the new channel, Sky Sports F1, will be available foc for Sky Sports 1 & 2...
