What price aluminium? by Flop
My ISP estimates that my Download speed should be 47.7Mbps and Upload as 10.9Mbps. In practice I achieve 27Mbps and 6Mbps. An Outreach engineer visited to check the disparity. No obvious faults in my equipment or exchange to cabinet or cabinet to house. His summary was that from the cabinet (600m) to the house, it was aluminium wire and this would explain the lower speeds.

BT infinity by Bertrand Zidler
Here are my first impressions after 3 weeks using bt infinity (FTTC) option 2. 1) The package It does not include much, apart from the connection to the Internet, and the hardware with a modem and a wifi router. No web space, no Usenet server that any other ISP would automatically include. Of course you can buy some web space for a few quids (or even use a free web server), and also access a...

Problems with ntlworld outgoing mail anyone? by Woody
Any of you out there with a ntlworld.com e-mail account using smtp.ntlworld.com as the outgoing mail server and having problems sending? I am using the same settings I have used for at least two years and I am getting an almost total failure rate - then all of a sudden the mail will go, and this is across any one of five e-mail addresses. The helpdesk said I should be sending mail...

Wi-fi on Car Ferry by David
Was on Stena Lagan from Birkenhead to Belfast this week, was surprised at the good coverage of the recently installed Wi-fi , received of course in the public areas but much to my surprise in our cabin. Thought the metal construction of a ship would limit it. One stays in hotels and can't get coverage in bed rooms. Regards David

Streaming Radio by allegoricus
Can anyone explain why with our Internet Radio (a Roberts Stream 83 connecting via WiFi, although I don't think that's particularly relevant) we have persistent problems with Radio 2? All too often there are interruptions in the stream - sometimes brief, other times of long enough duration to be considered lost - but connecting to other BBC stations (or stations on the other side of the world)...

Download Limits and 'Fair' Usage Policies by David Hume
I expect that this has been discussed somewhere, but I haven't found an answer. Why are we being subjected to download limits and fair usage policies? Is there any genuine technical reason for it, or is it just a way for ISPs to make more money? The infrastructure should be getting cheaper, but prices seem to be going up. I am getting about 6 Mbit band width, and the only way I can improve...

T-Mobile 3G WiFi limits and consequences (fair use policy) etc by www.GymRatZ.co.uk
Hi folks.. In a vaguely broadband/telecom theme hopefully some one can enlighten me through their own experience... My old Palm Treo finally died so I'm looking at these new fangled "smart" phones... Previously on Orange PAYG but since the Everything Everywhere Orange/T-Mobile merger started looking at T-Mobile plans. From what I can see, their cheapest offering is a 250Mb "basic"...

Suitable provider by Woody
My F-in-L in his late 80's has suddenly decided he would like broadband (he has dial up but rarely uses it because it takes too long to set up.) A low limit - 10Gb or less - would be more than enough. His current BT phone bill is about £90/qtr calls plus rental as he is only on Option He rarely calls mobiles. Can anyone give me ideas on who might be a suitable supplier for an ADSL service...

Netgear and DGTeam by Harry Bloomfield
I have three Netgear DG834G modems, a V2, V3 and V5. I have installed DGTeam firmware on the V2 and the V3 and I am trying to find the SNR setting in the routers browser interface, but cannot find it. I read a suggestion that it should be under the Advanced ADSL settings, but all that is there is a Modulation mode setting. Can anyone advise where the SNR settings ought to be please? I fancy...

Virgin Media DNS by WendyBurger
Has anyone had any joy setting their own dns server on virgin media? I have an account with OpenDNS and I'd like to be able to monitor and log network traffic, OpenDNS offer really good parental settings meaning every computer connected to my home network has the same parental configuration, they also block anonymous surfing sites like HMA etc. It's very annoying that they stop you from...

How to detect remote snooping? by Peter
I have come across some things that suggest that perhaps a specific individual has remote access to my home or office PC. We run Kaspersky AV, are behind a NAT router, don't use M$ Outlook for email and don't use IE for www. The email prog is Agent which doesn't execute (or display) HTML; only plain text. I am not talking about a standard "commercial" type virus, of the sort one might download...

This from another forum: If your mobile phone suddenly stops working with the error "Sim registration failure" or similar and it is the number associated with your internet banking account check what's happening on your bank account.

House move by Peter
I've just booked a house move with BT - move my telephone & broadband service that is, not move my house! I wanted the move done on the 30th or 31st of July, but have been told that the earliest date available is the 16 th August. Apparently the reasons for such a late date is due to the weather and the olympics. Whan I asked what the olympics had to do with the installation of a
