TalkTalk modems by Woody
Could anyone answer simple question please? An elderly neighbour has had her TT router replaced. She had a Huawei HG633 which has been replaced with a HG635, but both exhibit the same problem - or at least perceived problem. Power up and it goes through all its set up, flashing lights etc and eventually stabilises with four steady greens. However after about a half hour the Internet light...

"About four million people have been charged for mobile phones they already own, spending 500m extra on contracts, according to Citizens Advice. Three of Britain's biggest mobile networks, EE, Three and Vodafone, continue to charge for handsets even after the cost has been paid off."

Eclipse email with Outlook 365 by Graham J[_2_]
Trying to help a friend with his Eclipse internet connection and email. Eclipse is now Kcom - see: https://business.kcom.com/contact-us/ His internet connection works OK. About 4 weeks ago one of his email accounts stopped working. Finally he contacted me and I find that the problem is with the SMTP settings. Information from technical support at Eclispse says the settings should be:

Plusnet billing failures by Clive Page
Plusnet have changed their billing system and sent me two emails, first to say that this months bill would be delayed, and later to say that it was available. But the usual web links to billing simply don't work, bringing up all sorts of error messages. Don't they test new systems at all? Or maybe they have hired the same IT bunch as TSB? There are scores of postings on the forum...

"Mesh" wifi systems by Tim+[_2_]
Anyone tried the BT system? https://m.shop.bt.com/learnmore/bt-branded-products-and-services/b t-whole-home-wi-fi/ Quite a lot of money but we have to have another access point in our house to get coverage which works, but is a bit of a pain as devices frequently hang on to the "wrong" hotspot and have to be manually switched to the strongest signal.

Hyperopricks of this world admit no symmetric gbit Fiber for Londoners by 7[_2_]
Hyperopricks of this world admit no symmetric gbit Fiber for Londoners ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Its about as bad as it gets. The Hyperopricks of this world let slip that the are only doing tower blocks whilst pretending to install fiber Internet for the masses which they are NOT going to install. No one will install fiber for the masses.

Intermittent "destination address unreachable" when pining router by NY
What router fault could cause wireless devices (laptop, phone) intermittently to lose contact with the router (can't even ping the gateway address - destination address unreachable), even though the laptop believes that it is still connected when you click on the wireless icon in the system tray. The wireless icon says "no internet connection" but I don't think that means that the router has...

Newly upgraded from ADSL to FTTC/VDSL - fast sync but very slow speedtest.net speed by NY
My parents have recently upgraded from ADSL to FTTC/VDSL. Their new router is syncing at about 41/6 Mbps (D/U). However speedtest.net is giving speeds of about 4/2 Mbps (D/U). Is there something that the ISP (Plusnet) needs to do on a newly-upgraded line to remove some throttling? As of yesterday evening, my parents hadn't had the official "you are upgraded" notification from the ISP so it's...

Sky routers by DrTeeth
Hi, My neighbour has a Sky service. For some reason it looks like he has two routers/Wi-Fi access points judging by what I see when I use a program to show the channels on 2.4/5 GHz. Why is this? I do not have any problems with it, just curious. -- Cheers, DrT

BT Openreach predicting "In Scope" for FTTP (premises, not cabinet) by NY
If the BT Openreach fibre site https://www.homeandbusiness.openreach.co.uk/fibre-broadband/when-can-i-get-fibre for a given address reports a status of "Your area is currently in our plans to be upgraded with Fibre to the Premises (FTTP)", does that mean that *only* FTTP (to the premises) will be available, or will FTTC/VDSL also be available at a cheaper price?

Plusnet call protect seems to help by Clive Page
Just to give credit to Plusnet for once (or more probably their BT parent): I changed my Plusnet contract recently and added the Plusnet free services of call protect and also caller display. Based on a couple of weeks's experience, call protect (1572) does seem to get rid of most junk calls. We had none for two weeks then two yesterday (and just afterwards some Jehovah's Witnesses called at...

Adding an external aerial to a mifi unit by Tim+[_2_]
I have a Huawei (how the f*ck do you pronounce that?) 4G E5776 MiFi unit that I might be lending out to someone in a poor reception area. It has a tiny socket presumably for an aerial. Are there any gotcha's to choosing a suitable aerial? Any recommendations? Tim

Hyperoptic - joke offer by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
I was browsing something to do with Liverpool Lime Street station, when surprisingly an ad' for Hyperoptic appeared in the middle of the page. Normally I would have disregarded it, but given their infant pet troll posts on this group and it said fibre broadband for 19 per month I decided to click on it, which soon gets you to he - https://www.hyperoptic.com/price-plans/?broadbandonly it...

Point to point wireless by Theo[_2_]
If I want to make a wireless link of about 500m through a typical residential environment, but which can't do line of sight, is there anything I could do? The land is flat, but LOS goes obliquely through about 6 houses so seems like a non-starter. There's nowhere suitable to install a reflector - it might just be possible to get reflections off existing objects, but it'll be two or three deep...

Router will not logon to WAN after work on telephone pole by NY
My parents' internet has stopped working. I seems that some gardeners who were working next door were removing some branches that overhung the overhead mains wires from a wooden pole to the houses (theirs and the neighbour's). This pole also carries overhead phone lines. The work that they were doing involved temporarily turning off the mains to my parents' house and using winches to pull...
