    Yeah, hit and miss I guess. I may try moving it upstairs and seeing if that helps at all, but with the issues, we’ve just decided to go for the fibre.

    Have gone with Origin broadband, which were priced at £25 a month for the 67Mb pacakge, so we’ll give that a go (though I did upgrade the router they send me for a fee, which I thought was…[Read more]

  • Drezha replied to the topic Three 4G HomeFi in the forum Other Tech 1 month, 1 week ago

    We’ve given up now – have ordered regular fibre to be installed on the 4th. When it works, it works fine. However, we’ve had more slow downs and drop outs that we ever had with BT and with working from home, I’ve been struggling to use Office, and general usage has been very poor today. I’d also been getting it in the neck from the other half, so…[Read more]

  • Excellent news!

  • Drezha replied to the topic Three 4G HomeFi in the forum Other Tech 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    We have the B535 and it seems decent enough. Only issues we’ve had are Three not billing us correctly for the past two months (and some recent slow downs, but I believe this is a network issue, not the router).

    I used it in my old house for fixing a shower and for minor other tasks. From memory, it has a fairly short shelf life which is a pain. Not sure if that’s improved.

    Yea, the MacBooks will fit a biro spring there to help strengthen it. However, I’d use Sugru myself.

    Router has a number of ports and effected all items plugged in to it, so I was toying with the router being the issue, but it seems to be far better today (Synology actually backed up overnight and sent me the email to confirm, which hadn’t been happening as it was so bad).

  • Drezha replied to the topic Network troubleshooting in the forum PC Talk 1 month, 4 weeks ago

    It’s much better this evening, but everything still appears to be jumpy. Youtube and streaming seems to be hitting the lowest they’ll go mind.

    I’ll try the SIM tomorrow, but will need to check – I believe it’s one that will allow me to split between a nano and micro SIM.

    I note that the Pi Hole is set to use Google but has mainly been using…[Read more]

  • Drezha replied to the topic Network troubleshooting in the forum PC Talk 1 month, 4 weeks ago

    It’s set to 8.8.8.8 on the Pi Hole as the upstream server. I can try another, such as the OpenDNS servers. I’d normally expect to see if connect quicker once it’s a site that I’ve visited already though wouldn’t I? As that doesn’t seem to be happening,

    This has been reset daily since the issues started, as that was the issues I thought would…[Read more]

    It’s been a while since I’ve had to do trouble shooting, so I’ve probably missed issues.

    The home wifi (Three 4G deal) we’re on is awful at the minute. It seems to be slow at connecting and generally fairly slow anyhow, but then we’ll run speedtests and it’ll be no issue seen at all really! For example, the curent speedtest states the below,…[Read more]

    Holding off on getting fibre, but if Three charge me the wrong amount again this month, I’ll be complaining and asking to cancel.

    There are some decent price fibre packages now – had a look at Origin Broadband today – £27 a month all in for 64Mb fibre seems reasonable. Far better than the price we were paying with Virgin and cheaper than the…[Read more]

  • Drezha replied to the topic Three 4G HomeFi in the forum Other Tech 2 months ago

    Not sure if Three have been having outages locally – but the speed over the last three or four days has been awful.

    I’d even looked around for fibre packages (as the other half was complaining!)

     

  • Drezha replied to the topic Tron Script in the forum Windows Talk 2 months ago

    I’d seen it before, but only from the Resilo Sync forums, as they originally posted the script for download using Bittorrent Sync (as it was then) to reduce bandwidth constraints – however, BTSync/Resilo have hardcoded a maximum swarm size in it, so they were experiencing download issues.

  • It looked reasonably new – these days the heater and air conditioner would only be within the room.

     

    The 15 minutes may be how long they believe the virus can survive outside the host?

  • It’s hit the UK now – two confirmed cases (not from the quarantined flight lot).

  • Drezha replied to the topic Apple Shlayer Trojan in the forum Security Talk 2 months ago

    Thanks for the link. I don’t think I’ve got Flash installed on the Mac and I’d be keen to avoid it!

  • Any walkers to be honest. We brief the cadest on ticks and tick checks whilst out hiking, usually when we’re in Wales for our adventure training weeks,

  • I’ve got the Pro 11 inch that work purchased for us – whilst the University is mainly Windows focused, the apps we use for the risk assessments is far easier to use on the iPad than the web based version on the Windows tablet. A Surface also makes for a poor inspection tool due to the size – iPad Mini’s would possibly be better options for us, but…[Read more]

    January’s bill is also at £29, so I’m on the live chat to them (again) to resolve. If it happens in February, I will be writing to them to close the account and that as they haven’t been providing their side of the contract, and I don’t expect to pay any early termination fees. Then I’ll get my own router and go with SMARTY, as it’s been working…[Read more]

    Bob, no problem at all.
