BT Yahoo - hopeless authentification by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
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...

Why do I need a new router? by Murmansk
I'm upgrading from standard Plusnet broadband at about 12mbps to fibre at about 38mbps They say they're going to send me a new router which is fair enough but it set me wondering - exactly why so I need a new router or what is it about faster speed that the current router can't cope with?

How many subnets in a typical McDonalds? by Adrian Caspersz
If I wander in there with n devices connected to their wifi, can the interfaces talk to each other as well as the net? I'm hoping the answer is no... as I'm dreaming up a shared internet facility trying to keep student users roughly isolated on a simple switch (no VLAN support). Current plan is multiple DHCP leases, all individually on their own local lan subnets, each subnet connected to...

Sky internet connection question by Graham J[_2_]

He does have Cat5 Ethernet cable installed at every location where the...

RJ11 to RJ11 cable by DrTeeth
I need to buy a spare one of these cables. I have a VSDL connection. Does it matter if I buy one that says that it is suitable for an ADSL connection? I don't know if they are wired any differently. Ideally I am looking for a shielded cable. If anybody has any info on where I could get one I would be obliged. I am looking for one myself as I type... Many thanks -- Cheers,

Swapping DSL routers by Theo[_2_]
Quick sanity check: the way Openreach ISPs implement ADSL these days, is it necessary to program the router with a username and password to authenticate to the ISP, or is it entirely done by which line you're on? Does the same apply for LLU ISPs? For FTTC, do you still get given an Openreach VDSL modem, or is it integrated now? If you change fibre ISP, do you keep the VDSL modem (with any...

ADSL/VDSL routers - are they all total rubbish? by Chris Green
I have recently moved from an ADSL connection to VDSL/FTTC, on the ADSL connection I used a Draytek Vigor 2820n router. I run a couple of services on my home LAN, specifically ssh (so I can connect from the outside world) and SMTP (for mail delivery). Thus I need a router that does port forwarding and has a configurable firewall, I want/need to limit the ssh and SMTP access to a few specific IP...

BT Fibre Availability - To the Premises! by thesimpsons[_2_]
I've just noticed using. http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/adsl/adslchecker.welcome That all the fibre cabinets in my area (01934) now state, FTTP now available on demand, with 330 down and 30 up. I've not noticed this before, is this the same in other areas? Having done a little research an average figure of 500 is mentioned for connection, depending on distance from the cabinet. Will there be...

How easy is it to get one's cabinet changed (!) by Chris Green
I am currently connected to a new FTTC cabinet that is about a mile away from me, it only came on-line in March this year and I think I was probably one of the first people to get connected. For some reason (we can't believe it's high demand, this is a *small* village) OpenReach have installed another cabinet right at the end of our little road (well, lane more like) which is much closer to...

gmx.com and PopTray by PeterC
In May it was necessary to change the POP3 server settings for gmx to use Port 995 and SSL enabled. This is working for T'bird but, today, ceased working for PopTray. I assume that gmx has now disabled the the old log-in, but there's no option to set PopTray to SSL or Encryption so that could be why it doesn't work on gmx. Is there any way, perhaps in the Reg., of doing this? I quite like PT...

Orange email still working by Graham.[_3_]
My Freeserve accounts stopped receiving email sometime in the afternoon of the 1st June, but started again a week later on the 8th June and seems to have been working ever since. I imagine it's only a temporary reprieve though. Maybe they had too many people complaining, and threats of bad publicity, but that's only my guess. It's useful that my auto responder message with my current email
