I need more help :) I got a RUT240. https://teltonika-networks.com/product/rut240/ Loaded in latest firmware. Spent a whole day trying to get it to work. No luck. One cannot even ping a known-good external IP.

Request for someone with Zen and IPv6 by Richard Tobin
Could someone using Zen with IPv6 enabled please tell me if they can access the following URL: https://metamap.nlm.nih.gov/ I can reach it if I disable IPv6, and I can reach it with IPv6 enabled from work, but on my home network with IPv6 it times out. (I'd also be interested to know if anyone has trouble reaching it from a different ISP.)

Plusnet: Drastic traffic shaping. by Graham.
It's nice to read the complimentary threads about the ISPs current performance, I'm having real problems with Plusnet, it's very selective regarding what I can and can not use since Sunday afternoon. If it matters I'm a VDSL customer on the Prestwich exchange in N Manchester. Its easier to list what *is* working. All Google websites Google Search, Google Photos, Google Maps, YouTube, etc etc...

OT But Scam Warning: Coronavirus: How hackers are preying on fears ofCovid-19 by Java Jive
Apologies for the cross-posting, but this is a scam warning, and, despite the fact that it's being sent to people who are tech-savvy enough to use a ng reader, so is probably redundant, better safe than sorry ... "Coronavirus: How hackers are preying on fears of Covid-19 Security experts say a spike in email scams linked to coronavirus is the worst they have seen in years.

Not complaining by Tweed[_3_]
It is traditional hereabouts to moan about the state of UK broadband. I'm amazed at how well it is all holding up at the moment. My house is currently running a video stream from BritBox and a virtual pub session with my student son and his mates over FaceTime (it's called the Stay Inn). All day I've been running video calls to work colleagues and haven't really noticed any issues....

Broadband not collapsing by Chris
Mostly people complain when things go wrong so I just wanted to say that I'm pleasantly surprised that, on the whole, our broadband infrastructure has coped well with a sudden upswing in demand during the day with everyone WFH. I've been doing a lot of video calls, remote desktopping to work, etc and it's been the end-point services suffering rather than the connections. A big thumbs-up...

Stupid wifi cordless 'phone. by Flyig u 22 + on desktop
Both my landline cordless handsets have decided to throw wobblies. After about 20 minutes into a conversation or waiting for some help operator to answer the handset goes dead. No sound, no sign of life on the display, just nothing. After investing I find that the charging voltage in both charging unit is good. Put the defunct handset back on the charging unit lets the display activate...

Coronavirus and IPv6 by Richard Tobin
You can see the effect of Coronavirus on the relative use of IPv4 and IPv6: https://www.google.com/intl/en/ipv6/statistics.html#tab=ipv6-adoption Zoom in using the slider to show the last few months. IPv6 is always a higher proportion at weekends and Christmas because mobile devices use it more than people's work computers. The last week shows the effect of people not going to work.

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...
