[access-uk] Re: bt home hub?

hi thanks to all who responded i have gone the ether net root now, but the 
Muppets wanted to send out an engineer and then charge me.
that was after i told them i was blind and they said is there any lights 
flashing on the unit, i dare say the management will have a laugh because i 
asked if the said gentleman was deaf?
i did suggest that they do an audio guide explaining the unit and the different 
cables.
however at the moment its worse than dial up at the mo, they said it should be 
up to 8 megs in the next 10 days as there are running tests on the line.
many thanks too all again.

  Hi,

  This isn't completely accurate. I had my BT home hub installed by a BT 
engineer as I was having no end of difficulty with it.

  The first thing he did was to isolate the direct telephone connection into 
the house and plug the home hub direct into that. The next thing he did was 
throw all the filters out.

  He said that as the hub was directly installed into the incoming line there 
was no need for the filters. I have the usual amount of phones running off the 
line throughout the house, lounge, kitchen, bedrooms etc etc, there are no 
filters installed and there is no hiss off the analog line.

  The hub works as sweet as it was designed to work, the phones have no issues 
either.The only issue is the power of the broadband signal delivered by BT, but 
that is another point, and something that is unavoidable whilst we rely on 
holes and poles!

  Kind regards

  Colin

    You will want as many filters as you have phone points you use.  Hook the 
home hub to a point without a filter it just won't work.  Hook a phone up to a 
point with no filter you may hear hiss on the analogue line.

    BTW: I don't own a BT Home Hub, but all it is really is a fancy wireless 
router with some other bits tacked on.

    Regards.
