Routers by Java Jive
Following on from a current thread in uk.telecom.broadband entitled "How do most people manage IP addresses on their LAN?", which mentioned DrayTek routers quite a lot, and another in which I mentioned that I'd just managed to acquire a Virgin Data SIM with unlimited downloads for a really good price per month ... I now find that my DrayTek Vigor 2830n has lost its WiFi. I am familiar with...

Plusnet disabling all SMTP servers but their own? by Clive Page
This afternoon I received an email from Plusnet which looks genuine and says the following: quote Important - you might need to update your email settings We're changing the way our emails work Not using our outbound mail server? You'll find this useful. We're about to upgrade the way our emails work, meaning if you currently send yours through a non-Plusnet server, we need you to check that...

TalkTalk HG635 on VDSL with multiple static IP addresses by Abandoned Trolley
hi there If there's anybody out there using the TalkTalk business service on VDSL with MORE THAN ONE static IP address, then I would be interested to hear from you if you have managed to separate them in any way using the supplied "super" router - which appears to be a Huawei HG635 with custom firmware. Alternatively, if you fancy having a rant about TalkTalk, Huawei or Openreach, or...

Yahoo Group invitation by Davey
I have been invited to join a Yahoo Group, which would be convenient, but when I looked at the T&Cs, I found them horrifying. One paragraph seems to sum up their whole ethos: " When you use or interact with any of our Services, you consent to the data processing, sharing, transferring and usage of your information as outlined in this Privacy Policy. Regardless of the country where you reside,...

How do most people manage IP addresses on their LAN? by Chris Green
As mentioned in another thread I'm having problems managing DNS on my LAN. This is more of a rant than a question but I'd still quite like to know how other people manage things. I have Plusnet FTTC (irrelevant to the current issue) and a Draytek 2860n router connecting our NAT'ed LAN to it. There are quite a few 'things' which I need to connect to at times on the LAN:- Desktop PC ...

WiFi enabled camera by Tweed[_2_]
Most of my photography has migrated to my iPhone, largely because of the convenience. Pictures automatically appear on my iPad and go to the cloud (both iCloud and OneDrive) by virtue of apps on my iPad. I'm looking for a compact camera for my holidays (don't want something DSLR sized) because of the lack of an optical zoom on the iPhone. However, I don't want to faff around with plugging...

Any advantage in using private ranges other than 192.168.x.x in NAT router? by Chris Green
Is there any advantage to be gained security-wise in using a 'non-standard' private IP range in a NAT router. E.g. either 172.16.x.x or 10.x.x.x. I suspect not but I suppose there might be some gain in the 'security by obscurity' direction. .... any other advantages, except the obvious one of bigger sub-nets if you happen to need them? -- Chris Green

Another "router" question by AnthonyL
I want a local wireless lan on Win 7 without a router to run a test webserver and allow access via a smartphone. Thus far I've discovered XAMPP which runs a a local web server quite nicely but I have not found a way of getting IP address to the smartphones without an external router. Searching for DHCP Windows of course brings up loads of how to connect to a DHCP server but not how to make your...

Providing Fibre Broadband in areas with Exchange Only Lines by Rab C[_2_]
I asked some of these questions in another group (Demon Service) but realised the topic would probably be better discussed here, so apologies to anyone who has already replied elsewhere. In terms of providing new fibre broadband in rural areas served by Exchange Only (EO) lines, how is this actually done in regard to the infrastructure? Are two networks provided side-by-side: copper and...

Draytek Vigor 2860 and IPv6 by Angus Robertson - Magenta Systems Ltd
There seem to be a few people here using Draytek routers, anyone with IPv6? The Vigor 2860 router is quite happy with outgoing IPv6 over VDSL, but incoming seems rather more complicated. The network uses DHCP6 addresses for outgoing connections, but the servers also have static addresses from my /64 range. For IPv4 I have port redirection set-up for my small subnet redirecting certain WAN...

Proposed Sky speed upgrade by MissRiaElaine[_2_]
In October last year, we had a letter from Sky saying that our speed would be upgraded from its current 40 MB/s (ish) to an "average" of 63 MB/s. It was claimed this would take place sometime between December and "the Spring", whichever day of the year that might be. So far nothing has happened, has anyone else had this letter, and have your speed been increased yet..? If so how have you...

the lesser spotted Gigabit Ethernet port ? by Abandoned Trolley
hi there I am just wondering what the general view is of the astonishing number of wireless routers on the market (both xDSL and cable) which are offering wireless connections of hundreds of megabits, but have no wired connection faster than 100M. I realise that most connections are directed toward the internet, and that that majority of customers have download speeds less than 100M so its...

Dead line but working broadband by MissRiaElaine[_2_]
Picked up the phone to make a call earlier on and the line was totally dead, no dial tone, nothing, even at the master socket. Strange thing is, broadband is still working perfectly, no speed drop or anything. I know that sometimes one leg of the line can become disconnected, but when that's happened before I've had a significant drop in speed. Anyone got any ideas..? We are on FTTC with...

BT Broadband speed with HH6 (Smarthub). by brightside
From Monday this week PC experienced very sluggish responses when browsing. Responses seemed normal (browsing didn't seem any slower for the first five minutes, then the browsing progessively goes slower and slower. Reboot (power off / on) HH6 and the same happens again. (PC connected via wireless n). Run BT wholesale speed test and it returns 31 Meg on a line with a 32.33 Meg max (so says...

Differing speed testing results by Malcolm Loades[_2_]
I've always used speedtest.net and until a week or so ago my pings were always 7-9ms, mid 60s download and around 18-19 upload. This with a VF 75Mbps service. Two weeks ago speedtest.net started reporting pings in the 20s, downloads +/-15 but uploads only marginally reduced to 17. I've probably done around 20 tests in the past week at varying times but all results are in this frame. VF...

regain control of a bigfoot inbox by [email protected]
I've recently had my bigfoot inbox hacked and blackmail demands made by the hacker. They've told me they have access to files and folders on my desktop and could easily lock my computer so I'd have no access. Can anybody help me "regain control of the or close" the lifetime email address, so as to stop them using the email address?

viable to use 4G instead of fixed line? by Tweed[_2_]
If you live in an area with poor DSL speeds, and no access to Virgin cable, and you have a decent 4G signal from Three it might now be viable to use them for your domestic broadband. It seems Ofcom have stopped them from preventing you from putting phone tariff sims in mifi type devices...

Half of UK homes could get faster broadband by Java Jive
"One in seven homes could be paying more than they need to for broadband and could get faster services for the same or less money, Ofcom has said. New research suggests that half of UK homes have not taken up faster services even though they are available. Ofcom has launched a campaign dubbed Boost Your Broadband to let people know about what options are available. It follows years of...
