Home Broadband problems - does this look ok to you?
I'm having ongoing issues with my home broadband (from TalkTalk). Before I ring them up (again) and end up talking to a script monkey (again), possibly ending up with a chargeable home visit, I'll ask here first to check all's well our end :)
This is the current setup - this has been rock solid stable for 3 weeks at 2Mb (which is fine as it's what I was told to expect - before that we had a flaky 512k which suddenly went to a stable 2Mb after a "fault" (read: upgrade that they forgot to tell us about:rolleyes:)) until Saturday when the DSL started dropping out sporadically, and now it won't connect at all. Odd thing is that if you make a call on the landline, it does connect, and work for a few minutes, which is maddening if you're ringing their helpdesk as it's, well, working at the time.
Couple of things to note:
The old router (access point) is there because a couple of our computermabobs won't support WPA2 and the TalkTalk router won't support anything else - it's on a different channel and ssid and the wireless bits are working fine.
I've plugged a filter straight in the test socket as the numpty who lived in the house before (partner's ex) had wired an extension into the back of the faceplate, which obviously needs filtering.
Long story short - their end or mine?
