Internet problems
« on: July 20, 2016, 10:34:39 AM »
I seem to be having problems connecting to some internet sites. Some have no access, others intermittent access and some have no problem at all.
Pretty sure its not my kit causing a problem.

Anyone else know if there is a problem somewhere?

Perhaps its a UK thing cos of the heat. We've got buckled rails and all sorts of problems here. Looks like our designers don't expect UK temperatures to get above 20 degs. (Which it doesn't most of the time!!)

Same here with BT.  Only happened this morning and we thought it was due to the BT engineer outside.  However, we unplugged the routers, left for a minute and plugged in again.....all good.

That could be the problem then. I'm on BT broadband also. Guess I'll just have to wait till its solved.
Pity really - I wanted to check my online bank account to see if I've got enough cash for another Schools loco!! :) :beers:

BT! Ugh!

We changed ASAP after being without a service for more than 2 weeks due to someone not pushing the correct button at a local exchange. Open Retch and the phone lot couldn't agree who should press it.

Currently we are having a lot of timed out aggro with all sorts of websites but those that are bookmarked seem OK.

I'm told that it has something to do with the weather. Why didn't I think of that!  :-X
