| || || | Great Service from Plusnet yet again
I posted about a speed problem I was having,
on the Plusnet Forum at 9.23 this morning
Within 24 minutes at 9.47 a member of the
Plusnet staff posted to say they'd done the
necessary tweaking to my connection and had
restored my speed
Which they had.

| || || | strange connection problem
One of my clients, a small organisation, decided, without consulting me,
to change their ISP to save money, they were previously with BT for many
years with no problems, they are now with a company called onebillnet.
These people supplied a speedtouch modem which I was minded just to bin
and carry on using the netgear which we had been using previously.
Unfortunately the netgear, a DGN1000...

| || || | "Disappointing" speeds
Moved over to BT Infinity Option 2 about 4 weeks ago, after being given a
quoted speed estimate of 38.6Mbps, which was borne out by the first week's
sped test results. But after a couple of weeks, speeds yoyo'd, dropping
down to 9Mbps and have now stabilised at around 30-31Mbps.
Now, I do recognise that this is still way faster than I was enjoying with
my previous supplier. However, it's...

Virgin Media's cheapest cable broadband offering is now 30Mbs. I am an
existing customer still on 10Mbs, with a docsis 2 router capable of at
least 50Mbs. Has anyone been able to get VM to upgrade them in the
middle of a contract?

Sorry, could not find a more suitable active group...
Due to someone else's PC crashing and loosing lots of attached

various content size.
Yes I know I can highlight all of them, click Forward and they will be
all then copied into one email, but some of the individual emails are
already almost 10Mb and 10Mb is the limit on...

hopefully this isn't too off-topic. I am setting up a outdoor wifi
antenna, and am running a cable back inside the building to connect to
the access point.
The cable will have an N-type screw connector at the antenna end, and
an SMA connector at the other.
I am familiar with crimping up connectors of varying types - N-type,
BNC, etc., but only for indoor cables. I haven't been able...

I wanted to re-grade my ADSL service to a Fibre product so I instructed
my ISP to go ahead with the re-grade.
This process involves a visit from a BT Openreach engineer who requires

this to be done.
I was informed that if I was not available on the appointment date and

| || || | Skype to Giffgaff (UK mobile no.) = expensive
WOW!!!! I've just made a call on my Notebook at the South Bank (free
wifi) using Skype credit to a local Giffgaff no. Skype charged me
£1.50 for a mere 4 minutes!!!!
Since MS took over Skype the costs have rocketed - and the quality is
a dreadful as ever.
Are there cheaper ways of calling via VOIP from a Notebook on wifi to
a UK mobile no.?

| || || | Ordering New Line Specifically for FTTC
I want to order a new line at my place of work, specifically for FTTC.
We already have ADSL but checks on this line and other copper lines we
have say that FTTC is not available. So do checks on the postcode (we
are a school and have our own postcode).
Checks on lines at nearby premises are positive so I presume our lines
are routed via the 'wrong' cabinet which has not been enabled for...

| || || | Top Band and Routers
We've recently been upgraded to ADSL2+ by BT. Whilst we get a decent
improvement in download speeds, a mere sniff of RF on top band and the
router loses sync and disconnects. It's a Draytek 2800G.
Not surprising since this is in-band interference to an ADSL2+ router.
Tried filtering the mains and a common mode filter on the line. No
Setting the modem to G.DMT fixes it but at the...

If you didn't already have a reason not to live there, then here's another:
Although if you can afford property there then I suppose a few K a year for
FTTP isn't much of a hardship.

I visited some premises yesterday where there was a newly installed
line that really is for ADSL use only, use of the PSTN side is
discouraged even for incoming calls.
As can be seen here,
Redcare is in use on this line, this should not have happened as the
line is managed by a third party, not the customer.
