My folks in law have just gone live with their first ever internet connection!!!
They should have gone live last week but when i checked on saturday they were getting no synch..
Logged fault with Newnet as knew that something was up at the exchange end not the CPE end.
Shock horror went over tonight to double check everything and the modem had synched up..... Something had been changed. Dont think it will belong before a BT CSE will be booked out though as they have a ring bell wired into their circuit which isn't filtered as its connected straight onto another drop cable... some funky wiring i aint seen for a long time is going on and with them being out in the sticks their exchange is literally like a big shed!!
Though they are getting 8.1meg down and just over 1meg up!! pretty good i think.
I set them up using an old Voyager 210 modem, then jumped that into a Cisco N class wifi router. Nice, secure and with a dam good range on it as well so they might even be able to sit at the side of their lake with their laptop as they become more confident with the tinterweb thing and progress with it all
