 Post subject: Phone suddenly stopped working but internet fine...
PostPosted: Sun Sep 16, 2018 6:10 pm 

I have been trying to resolve a telphone problem for a relative but without success and I wonder whether anyone can throw any light on what the cause of the problem might be.

My relative has a domestic phone and broadband contract with TalkTalk.

The internet works fine but the phone has recently stopped ringing and there is no dialing tone at home - this is the case with or without the filter. Prior ...

 Post subject: What digitial coms are still up and running?
PostPosted: Fri Sep 14, 2018 11:02 am 
I have not used my radio in years, every so often I revalidate my licence, but that is about it. I have kept all the old equipment, including an Amiga computer and still have the old BayCom modem, and Amicom software. But no aerial fitted at moment.

Packet radio required there to be other people also running packet to relay the info, so not worth me erecting aerials if no longer used. So is it ...

 Post subject: Internet and Extension Socket
PostPosted: Sun Aug 26, 2018 6:07 pm 

I have a master socket in the garage where I know the Internet works and landline phone works. However I have an extension in another room in the house where the landline works and the router doesn't. Any ideas.

Regards Ray

This is about a new mobile, and a few ideas, its not a comms or software question.

I just got a new Samsung mobile this afternoon (Don't get an A5) I also downloaded (at phones suggestion) Samsung Smart switch, really clever, it copied all apps etc (but not all passwords) saved loads of grief. Its now doing umpteen updates. :roll:

 Post subject: Photo numbering.
PostPosted: Tue Jun 19, 2018 6:28 pm 
Can anyone explain the photo numbering system on my phone?

When I take pics with my SLR or even the little P&S I sometimes use, the photos are numbered sequentially, but there appears to be no rhyme or reason to the numbers allocated to the pics taken with my phone.

Screenshot below of three pics taken within a few seconds of each other on my phone ...

 Post subject: Large button phone
PostPosted: Wed Feb 28, 2018 8:37 pm 
I need to get a large button mobile phone for my wife.

It'll be PAYG the same as her phone is now and I plan to just use the sim card from her current phone.

Many of the large button phones that I've looked at say they don't work with 3G.

How do I find out if that will be a problem?

She is currently on Orange, (or possibly EE), I can never work that ...

 Post subject: Help with wiring new telephone extension socket
PostPosted: Sat Nov 18, 2017 3:52 pm 
Hello - need some advice on how to wire a new extension socket, if anyone knows how?

This is the current master socket in my house - the main feed wires are white and orange, and punched down into number 2 & 5

The other wires in the master (which appear to be older specification), are red, blue, black and yellow. These are the connections which run to the current ...

 Post subject: CAT5e To Shed
PostPosted: Tue Sep 05, 2017 9:32 pm 

Got a man-shed, electrics going in soon but I'm currently using a 15mtr extension to power my Xbox and other bits including Develo Powerline Adapters for Internet.

I'm thinking about running some armoured CAT5e to the shed as well to save on socket use. But I'm debating on how many runs of cable I actually need.

As of now I'm just using android tv box and Xbox wired to the Develo to my BT ...

 Post subject: What mobile phone should i buy
PostPosted: Tue Aug 01, 2017 2:56 pm 
Could someone give me some advice on what to look for when buying a new mobile phone as every phone I thought about buying the reviews have said buy another phone. I don't want to spend over £200 but it must be 4g ready and have a half decent camera.
