ADSL faceplate for fibre? by Gareth
I have an ADSL Nation faceplate for a master socket - it seems to work well and upped my ADSL from 1.5 to 3.5. I've gone for a VDSL upgrade and I'm wondering if I can just keep the ADSL Nation faceplate instead of having a BT Openreach faceplate installed. I've read mixed reviews on this - some people say it is fine and others say not. I can't see much difference in the specs of the two...

FTTC by Chris
My phone line was down. Openreach engineer called at the house. He fixed the fault - a broken wire at the exchange. He also said that FTTC is coming to my street cabinet in 2013. Very good news indeed! Will I have to change ISP to BT Infinity? Right now I pay BT for line rental and TalkTalk for broadband and phone calls.

Question about media streaming players by Dave Saville
Perhaps someone can enlighten me on these gadgets about something that I find odd. The one I have been l looking at is a Roku - largely becasue as far as I know it is, currently, the only one in the UK that will drive a TV that does not have HDMI connections. Although that is about to change with the expected launch of Netgear's NeoTV300 series. (supposed to be December) Now all these boxes...

Painless move to new Plusnet package by rbel
Also posted to ps customer-feedback. Simple move from existing PN account to new 12 month unlimited and phone deal. The only thing that you need to be aware of (if you want to take advantage of it) is that the lower rate line rental available if you pay for 12 months in advance is a separate transaction which takes place when they take the line over. -- rbel

LAN oddity by Harry Bloomfield
WinXP desktop, which I hibernate when not in use. When turned back on, despite showing as being connected to the Internet, it often doesn't manage to move any data in or out via the wired LAN to the router. The quick fix is to either disable and re-enable the interface or click on repair and it all starts to work properly. Is this normal behaviour, or do I have an issue? --

BBC News mobile website on Three S2 screwed up ... by CJB
I don't use my S2 much now because when I do a top-up Three cancels any unused services (texts, 3-3 calls, Internet) after a mere 45 days. GiggGaff on my Nokia is a miles better service. However my Three mobile dongle ran out of credit so I needed to tether the S2 with an Internet add-on. Then on the train whilst playing around with the S2 (untethered) I tried the BBC News mobile site. This was...

Suspicious message by Harry Bloomfield
This started about 6 months ago, but just affected one particular sender of emails, so I thought it was something at their end - now I am seeing a few other emails marked up similarly.... In the subject line, at the beginning of the line, it will have the following in square brackets - . It arrives from the Tiscali pop server marked in this way, rather than my system marking it this way. If...

BT killing off Broadband Talk by R. Mark Clayton
Is this so that if you get your broadband from another provider they can't give you a Voip phone to make all your calls on and take call revenue from BT? -- R. Mark Clayton remove nospa for email

Upload speed degrading faster than download speed? by chris
Hi all, I noticed this weekend that my upload speed degrades worse over wi-fi than my d/load speed. e.g. downstairs the speeds were measured (via speedtest.net) as ~10Mbps down and ~0.09Mbps up over wifi. Where upstairs when connected via ethernet I get ~12Mbps down and ~0.3Mbps up. Anyone any idea why the upload speeds are so much worse downstairs? BTW I'm on ADSL2+ with plusnet. TIA

TP-LINK setup..TD-W8951NB by The Natural Philosopher
Am I alone in thinking that if you are a dumb twit, and you just do the standard things, the TP-LINK routers are actually good. But if you try and use any of the advanced features its so buggy that its a miracle if you can get it to do anything? I have rebooted it 5 times reset it to factory defaults, had it fail to respond to pings or be accessible via web interface, tried to save and...

Cable broadband/tv without phone by Chris Hills
I have had contracts with virgin and telewest in the past, and it is *still* cheaper to get broadband and tv *with* a phone line compared to without. Not only that, if you do not get a phone line, you have to pay an additional 49.95 one-off fee. What is the reasoning behind this? Also, you cannot get the smallest 50-channel package using the "Build your own bundle" tool . It is only available...

10 days and counting to fix fault by Justin C
On Friday 9th November I notified BT of a fault. While I still have a network connection the download speed is lousy, I'm getting about 56K on what should be at least 2MB. It'd been that way for a while, I thought a router re-boot might fix it, but no. Checking with my ISP (Andrews Arnold) I found some diagnostic tools on their site, ran them and they reported a fault on my line. So I telephone...

Flakey ADSL connection by Justin C
I had terrible download speed (less than dial-up) and finally decided to do something about it about two weeks ago. Using diagnostic tools on my ISP's site a fault was found which i reported to BT (my phone service provider). BT fixed the fault but my broadband speed didn't increase. I went back to my ISP and was asked to try the router in the master socket, with a different cable and different...
