A friend's Windows 10 PC, connecting to his TalkTalk DSL-3780 router by wireless, is failing to be allocated an IP address by DHCP if IPV6 is enabled in addition to IPV4. No IPV6 address is listed in ipconfig, in place of an IPV4 one. The symptom is that ipconfig gives a 169.x.x.x address instead of a 192.168.1.x address. If I set IPV4 to use a static IP, subnet mask and gateway in the...

I'm planning on installing a set of phone sockets all connected to one socket that is connected to a Cisco ATA that allows me to have VOIP calls on normal phones via Sipgate. Is there a limit to the number of phones you can have - a bit like the REN I remember with normal phones? In my setup, presumably the ringing current comes from the Cisco ATA rather than from the BT phone line as there...

Two flat in a large Victorian house - I'm planing to take a Cat5 cable from the router on floor 2 down to the flat on the ground floor via the underside of the banisters. In the lower flat it'll terminate in an RJ45 type socket and there'll be an 8 port switch. From there it'll go round to RJ45 sockets in the flat and I'll have a Sipgate VOIP account with a Cisco ATA wired to the phone...

What is the current situation with VDSL installs? I have ADSL but would like to upgrade, do I need an Openreach visit and a compulsory modem or can I use my own VDSL compatible equipment? TIA -- Nick B.

When using sipgate to make calls, people whom I call report they can hear an echo of their own voice. I have tried using headphones but it makes no difference. What is causing the echo? How can I stop it? I am using Twinkle, a linux client.

A recent flurry of BT Fibre activity in the street that passes our shop got me thinking Fibre is coming my way... The area is already FTTC for most users but a lot of us are on EO lines so no cigar... Dumped Cable many years ago as it became useless after the Virgin takeover from Telewest/Blueyonder days (for me at least). Boxes are appearing on top of telegraph poles with fibre coils...

The BT checker says that my line will be able to get VDSL Multicast from Feb 21st 2017. The line will still only be able to get ADSL MAX. The exchange is only 20CN but there are VDSL cabinets around the villages from this exchange and lines on those can already get VDSL and VDSL Multicast. Is this a data error on my line or can they actually do VDSL Multicast on an ADSL MAX line? We do get the...

Just wondered how many fibres were in a standard FTTP/H connection - two I would guess TX and RX ? Dave.

Roughly every month BT Yahoo! decides that my password needs changing. Usually if I happen to access my email while out and about and not from my own BT broadband connection. This is nuisance as I have to update the settings on my PC, tablet and phone. Last night I had to change it four times in fifteen minutes. What a PITA. When are BT finally going to get a decree absolute from Yahoo! and...
