Derham @ DMonkey Computers
Hi Jay, Probably lack of, or faulty, filter. Each socket that is in use needs one. It's a small box that splits the high and low frequency signals and stops the ringing signal hitting the router I hope that helps but feel free to call if you need any ... [ more ]
John-and A
Yes I found the small filter box solved the problem and not expensive. As Derham says you need to get one for EACH phone socket around the house

Gas fire disconnection

Christina B in Great Bealings
Hi, we're looking for someone who can disconnect a gas fire without charging exorbitant call-out charge. We think we could probably do it ourselves but 'Google' says it should be done by a 'competent person'. Thanks in advance!

Illegal? Depends on how it has been installed. If it has an isolator tap (as it should) then you can turn the tap off and disconnect the compression joint on the gas fire side. You need to make sure the gas tap can't be turned on again, of course ... [ more ]

It is the same as cutting Golf Greens with a Cylinder lawnmower that is specifically set up for cutting the grass to a certain length. It will need no adjustment or special skill to do it. Glad you are sorted.

I would have thought that performance poor enough to warrant escallation within BT and Ofcom.  If rain stops service there is most likely water in a joint and BT should fix it (assuming it is within their wiring rather than within your house).
Jeff W
I report it, they fix it. Openreach will not replace a certain cable across the A12 because it is too expensive and not cost effective. They lay underground cables less than a metre from the surface which allows the farmer to cutsthrough them. ... [ more ]
