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

Mobile Internet by David
I'm out and about a bit and have a O2 dongle for my laptop, I often buy a month pay as you go and always have credit left. I loose this at the end of the the month. (The O2 home page when I connect says I can use BT Open Zone free but BT ask me for money when I'm in one.) I'm thinking of a change but are they all a rip off with the loosing your credit at the end of a period? Regards David

BT Vision by Peter
While placing my order to move telephone & broadband service from what will be my old address to my new address, BT tried to sell me BT Vision. Not interested at the moment, but may go for it in the future. I did ask if it was possible to have more than one BT Vision box and was told no, it isn't possible. Can't think why a second (or more) box shouldn't work - anyone got any ideas? --

VirginMedia upgrades by Dave
I've been wondering about getting a SuperHub on the basis that it'll give me a speed upgrade. I've seen mention that it can be put into a dumb mode so I can do a like-for-like replacement into my existing system. Does anyone have practical experience of doing this? -- Dave Too many gadgets, too little time.

Gigabit cable routers with good firewall/routing rules by GS
We're looking to replace a BT Hub3 with another cable router (for FTTC) as we want 4 Gigabit ports instead of the Hub3's stupid 1 x gigabit + 3 x 100Mb ports, and I was wondering if Zyxel (e.g. Zyxel NBG4615) were any good since they seem to be half the price of Netgear. One thing I need is to set up specific port forwarding rules which are dependent on the remote IP address so that only...

Setting up G.DMT on Netgear by Jack Rabbitt
Hi All, I have been advised by my ISP to set my ADSL mode on my router to G.DMT. Not so easy as it sounds? I am using a DT834GT Neargear router - era 2006, and I cannot find the setting for this. Under the router setup settings , i only have

Plusnet - Just Plusnet by [email protected]
I noted several threads on this NG in June 2012 with headers along the lines of "great service from Plusnet" or "**** service from Plusnet" I'm a Plusnet customer and follwing this incident let me say, I'm not about to demand my MAC code as a result of it, and I'll be staying with them. This is however my account of an ADSL fail and the time period in which it was fixed. Plusnet have a 0800...

OT DVI Splitter by John
I recently bought (from ebay) a DVI splitter and a long DVI to HDMI cable so I can watch iplayer and other downloaded stuff on the TV. The cable works fine but not the splitter. I have a dual DVI output and two monitors. I was hoping to use the splitter so the 2nd monitor and the TV showed the same output, but all I get is a blank screen, not just on the TV but on the monitor as well. I have...

FTTC from BT by Gordon Freeman
I've been told at the place I work that BT Connect are apparently offering them FTTC for the same price as their ADSL apart from a nominal setup fee, but in the past whenever they've promised us something would be the same price or cheaper it has always ended up more expensive, so I wondered if anyone knows if they are definitely doing ADSL to FTTC changeovers for no increased cost? There's...

Copyright download question by Graham J
I've been asked to advise about an accusation that a user has downloaded copyright material. The accusation comes from the ISP, but in turn they rely on a "Take Down notice from an organisation or individual which states they are the rights holder, or represent the rights holder" - without saying who this is. Later the line: Complainant: Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation Infringement...

Choosing between low power servers by Peter
I wonder if I could have some opinions on this... At work we have a low-use www/email server, which is a big old 3GHz PC with a SCSI HD. It draws about 300W and makes a lot of noise. We also have a backup server on another site; identical to the 1st one. We are looking at getting rid of these old boxes before they seize up, and also to reduce the power because we get power cuts here and a UPS

FTTC - 1500 metres too far ? by Andrew Benham
A friend of mine has just had FTTC installed, and isn't happy because he's getting worse speeds than he had with ADSL. I estimate that he's 1500 metres from the cabinet, BT Infinity's checker gives his line an estimated speed of 11.4 Mb/s on "Faster Total Broadband", and 3 Mb/s on ADSL. He's getting speeds of 2 - 3 MB/s on FTTC, which sounds bad. I rather think that 1500 metres is too far for...

strange connection problem by Martin Smith
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 by Bob
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...
