A client has recently installed ADSL on their fax line. However,

Using a DG814. Suspecting a faulty filter, they installed a BT ADSL
master socket from Clarity - still the same.
They have now tried a different fax machine and still the same.

I too am interested in Metronet, as are some friends.
I emailed them as follows, and they replied (very quickly i might add).
Just thought you mighy be interested. Any comments?
Myself and several friends are very interested in your PayGoDSL service.
We wondered how you are able to sustain such a service when BT charge ISPs
£15 per month for an ADSL service. Obviously, we don't want to...

| || || | Experiement : hardware survey
I've just setup a very quick survey at http://shorl.com/benadrulykete
which asks a couple of questions about what broadband hardware is
being used by users, what ISP, what OS etc etc etc.
I would like to see the results from what users are actually using,
and when sufficient data is in the database, I will release a querying
page where you could filter down on any of the fields and see...

Bought an Ebuyer cheapy 1.99 filter on the off chance it might be okay - it
is awful! Horrific buzz on the telephone line and the DSL keeps dropping out
when it is connected through it.
Please could I have recommendations of a splitter that works? The ones that
Pipex sent to my parents house when I set their adsl up are perfect, but I
can't find the manufacturer of them.

Most ISPs insist on differentiating between private and business customers
and charge 3 times as much. A basic ADSL service is all I require.
Nildram at www.getadsl.co.uk are an excellent choice and don't mind...

On Sun, 6 Jul 2003 17:28:45 +0100, Chris Buckley
I am pretty sure i know what is causing this. P2P apps open up
hundreds, sometimes THOUSANDS, of ports. Your router just wont be able
to handle that sort of traffic if you are NAT'ed. Turn off NAT and all
should be ok.

| || || | Just a quick question..........
My exchange is being activated next week but I have seen something mentioned
about a "ready for service" date. Does this mean that once my exchange is
activated it is ready for service or is there normally a period of time
between it's activation and it's being ready for service?

| || || | Ready for service date?
My local exchange (Risca, Gwent) has been given a Ready For Service date of July 16th.
Does this mean that I can actually have broadband on the 16th or is that the date the BT
engineers go in and start? If so how long will it normally take to fit the ADSL gear?

| || || | D-Link DSL-504
I had several times problems to get my router working with Clara.Net.
First, I had the Zoom X3 and then I bought a D-Link DSL-504 (a router
listed/recommended on their web site).
Initially the Zoom X3 worked fine without any problems, but suddenly
the connection was dropped after a while (it varried from 3 to 30
minutes). I then decided to change the router and bought a D-Link

Can a exchange which has broadband only be in a 5.5km radius? so a town with
a 11km radius to cover it all will be made into two exchanges.
sorry about the wording.

| || || | Replacing Attenna On Wireless Access Point
I have seen kits to locate the aerials on bits of cable to cover blind spots
etc... some WLAPs even support "Diversity mode" (both aerials) or you can
select which it uses... this is (AIUI) primarily to allow a single antenna
to be located away from the unit but the WLAP to be in an office somewhere.
