  1. Hi all, I want to purchase a new fibre modem/router to replace the Technicolor modem/router that was supplied by Manx Telecom, has anyone any suggestions on what I should be buying? Thanks WD.
  2. Hi all, long time no type I have a HP generation 8 nas 16tb that I use for running plex with xpenology. I'm running out of space. I need the forums expert knowledge on whether to get another HP or a Synology DS418 Play? Or would you recommend something else such as Qnap? Thanks WD
  3. Well ManxTelecom don't do loan routers anymore, maybe they should tell the rest of the staff especially the ones who are on the support first port of call if your having a problem. Anyway I took the router to telecom this morning who plugged it in and said it's not my router causing the problem.
  4. Nope just lost the connection again. Will head to Telecom in the morning to get a loan router to try, at least I can rule the router out then.
  5. I think I've sorted it by rolling back the firmware. I'll let you know tomorrow night. Joey Concrete can you recommend a Thomson (Broadcom) router? I don't think it's the vectoring as according to MT, I was only switched onto that last Monday. and according to them I;ve been getting drop outs before that.
  6. Thanks for the reply SWD. Can you or anyone else recommend a router apart from the new technicolor router that will work with MTs ultima broadband?
  7. Is anyone using the Technicolor TG589vac v2 Dual-Band VDSL/ADSL2+ router provided by Manx Telecom, if so has anyone had any issues with them. Are they suitable for streaming plex from a server? I use a Fritzbox at the moment but I'm having a few issues with disconnections usually any time from 6pm until about 9.30pm. I know it could be my line and it probably is even though I haven't had any problems in the past. If I get a new or loan router and that works fine I know it'll be my router that's faulty, If the new router has problems it will be the line or the box has a fault. If it turns out to be the latter I can get an MT engineer out and it won't cost me. Thanks in advance. WD.
  8. I've decided to go with the HP microserver with 4 x 4 terrabyte hard drives. I also have a memory upgrade. Hannay was going to build it for me but he seems to have dropped off the radar. I really don't want to mess this up, especially installing the new memory. Is there anyone out there that can help me build it and give me some advice on setting up FreeNas?
  9. Oh right! I thought it was sub-contractors doing the pavement there? According to past posts on this forum sub-contractors/the private sector are much quicker and quality of work is superior, or is that what you mean't by 'they'?
