Weak wfi signal by Peter Johnson[_3_]
The wifi signal on my Asus DSL-AC68U router has become very weak. The phone will connect if it is about a yard from the router but loses the connection when it is moved further away. The wifi analyzer app tells me that the signal strength is -75dBm. My back up ISP router, in the same location, will have a signal strength of -60dBm and its reach extends throughout the house, and probably reaches a...

CCTV by Woody
Can anyone recommend a wireless IP camera that works without needing to talk to a server somewhere at a cost, and itself doesn't cost the earth? I want to be able to view its output from my phone. Ideally the camera should be waterproof so it can be outside, and need only a power supply from a wall-wart. I don't need an internal SD card for storage, and I don't need it to be remotely...

Changing DNS PTR entries by David Rance[_2_]
Does anyone know of a company that will allow me to change my DNS PTR entry? I have operated my own email server for some ten years now without any problems but because ESPs are clamping down on spam, etc., they have brought in draconian rules which are now preventing me from sending mail to, notably, any gmx accounts. So there are a number of my contacts that I can now no longer...

Plusnet dodgy Internet by tim...
For the past three weeks I have suffered continual episodes of "no internet" for several minutes at a time, but with access to my news server, so it's not the line that at fault. Are other people suffering from this? I lived with it over Christmas as I gave them the benefit of the doubt having people on holiday etc. But it's still happening.

DECT and FTTC, any known issues? by Chris Green
Following on from my posting in uk.telecom about our DECT phone problems (not detecting some calls and not always clearing down) it occurred to me that the only (fairly) recent change to our line was a switch from ADSL to FTTC. Are there any known problems likely to occur when using an FTTC line with DECT? Are filters more critical for example? Any other possibilities?

Can I get a refund for very band landline/FTTC broadband? by Alfred[_2_]
I had a stable ADSL connection for long time at home. 1 year ago they enabled FTTC in the cabinet and I upgraded to FTTC, which at the beginning was working very well. I was getting 10/40Mbps as promised and the connection was stable. That stable FTTC connection lasted for 6 months. From June till now the connection has been very unstable. I can stay for hours without internet. I got the...

Oh dear - Openreach... by PeterC
Ordered FTTC on 14/12, Order passed to OR on 16/12. ISP said about 3 - 4 days, OR says 7/1. Well, so long as FTTP is being installed, who am I to complain - I've got 3mbps :-( , if it holds up at SNR of 6 and 3.5km to the exchange (and 25kV sparks 100m away). -- Peter.
