A modify order has now completed on this account to place the customer onto the new network.


A quick change to my login details and tracert's now look rather different!

Try using username@plusdsl2.net

Obviously changing "username" to your correct login.

NB, this will only work if you have the same Service Notice as Jelv above on your account.

Supposing I have access to the credentials for a PAYG Basic account, which is provisioned at an address different to mine, could I use those credentials to trial the RIN from my house? (Ignoring the obvious only connect at one address type issues)

Supposing the above is possible, would there be any difference if I used the credentials at my workplace (ignoring obvious bandwidth consumption issues!)

..Or is it all a pipe dream...?

The modify order placed allows access to the RIN realm from the BT line your service is provided on - so, unfortunately, that would not work.

The acid test must be what it performs like during the evening peak:

That is the best result I've ever obtained from the TBB speed checker - any time of the day.

I hate you.  You and the Sheffield exchange Smiley

Do I gather that there is a little contention at the Sheffield exchange?

It's nothing like as bad as some speed issues I've seen reported.  But I generally get around 3Mbps during the busy periods and 5Mbps off peak.

I live on the same road as the exchange.

John - I think I must have been misreading all the TBB posts about your speeds...  Somehow I had been under the impression I was getting somewhat slower speeds, but to be frank I have not found problems with speeds for the video or audio streams I fill days and nights with (though not the UK evenings if there is CSI or NCIS on TV Smiley )  but here's an old speed test I just dug out...

OK, not quite as fast in either direction as your recent test, but I don't upload all that much, and while I sometimes use VNC / LogMeIn for remote control, most traffic (screen copy) comes to me, of course...  With a Conexant chipset router that's on the line today, I'd probably get lower speed for traffic, even though sync is 7744/448 kbps.  I rarely bother with speed tests these days (and might need to switch PC, as I don't have Flash or Java installed {for good reason} on this one), except when testing a remote client's PC Smiley

Have just done a speed test and checked the PN exchange report...   Mine is currently much slower, not sure whether it's the router or somewhere else.

Will have to try a Zyxel Prestige 660R-61C again - I had one here for several months and found it to be fine for speed and kept a solid connection with the local exchange {unlike the Conexant models I have tried}...   One odd thing I just noticed on a website was no mention of PPPoA...  So can some kind soul clarify whether PPTP or L2TP replace PPPoA or could this be a mistake on the page?

I first came across that Zyxel router in August last year, when another ISP was doing a special of connection and a year's use {with 2 GB/month traffic quota} for a total of 60 quid {+delivery charge for the router}.  They were presumably expecting to attract lots of dial-up users, so I have to assume they went for kit they knew would work with minimal support requirements...

Any chance of manually adding the realm?
