    Problems logging into forum

    @Netduma Fraser Can you take a look in to why Rob needs to reset his password every time he logs in?

    Xbox One X and 4K static screen flashing

    You need HDMI 2.0 which will do 4K 60FPS the Xbox one X comes with one of these. Or if you want to future proof there is HDMI 2.1 for up to 10k. If you are using a HDMI 1.4 this will only do 4K 30FPS.

    There is no data to edit in the admin panel for this BD. I would go to chrome's settings / advanced / passwords / and see if you have multiples saved or delete your old saved then sign back in and save it a fresh.
  4. Early morning posting, yeah it doesn't make make much sense lol. What I meant to say was DLM is not live on new activations until 48 hours are up, so you did have interleaving set because of the flaky rubbish TT hub then fast path has been applied quickly after changing to a good modem/router because the normal DLM time limits were not in place.
  5. You must have still been in the no DLM 48H period from activation for it to change so quick. People and some ISP 's still claim the 10 day period but its not true on fibre, it is 48h no DLM then DLM there after. It is great now, if it was me it would be set forget and enjoy gaming for now on in
  6. Up to 9 days before DLM will change so do not change anything if you can. My ping is 16ms on fast path because of where I am based and it’s fine.
  7. Because the tt router is trash, I did say not to use it in an earlier post.
  8. Ah I see, you do not need a user name or PPPoE. Here are the settings Type: VDSL over PTM Encapsulation: IPoE NO username or password required VLAN 802.1p: 0 802.1q: 101 MTU Size: 1500
  9. You do not need to change a thing in the HG612, leave all as default and connect it to your R1 that is it
  10. What modem are you using? the HG612 if so plug and play no authentication. If you are talking about the TT router I would not use that and stick with your HG612 > R1

    Ping assist is for outside your geo filter so if a game outside your filter matches or is below the threshold set. The ping can be any range within your filter and it will be allowed. Back when I used the geo (I do not feel the need to use it with dedicated servers games I only use it for P2P games) I would set my assist to 0 and only search within the geo or make my geo tiny and place it in the sea and use the ping assist so I only had games within the ping assist range (remembering to add about 30ms on top of my base ping)

    R1 issues

    Hi sorry to but in, that is just a server that does not always respond to ICMP pings and is nothing to worry about. You can tell as it does not affect the final destination. Make sure no one is using the connection apart from the test itself, or use congestion control while you test if others must be on at the time of the test. The line looks OK and the little jitter there maybe the server itself if the line was idle while testing.

    UK ISP ratings for August 2018

    Yeah not TT, I have used them for years since the ADSL+2 days and I have never had one issue, yeah I do not need to phone for help but if you set your home network up correctly and do not have shoddy BT cables out side of your property it is ace.

    People that frequent TBB forums will be the types that read posts, learn good networking etiquette and sign up to the likes of AAISP, ZEN etc. The general public that I speak to at work think WiFi signal is their connections, wondering why they have drop outs in an old build thick walled house, or that using a 20 meter telephone extension cable witha router on the end of it is a good idea to booking in devices saying they are slow and when I test them before servicing they are really quick to find that they do some of these things or live 5 miles from their exchange on ADSL thinking its either their devices or ISP fault. These are the types that use the big company like Sky, BT, TalkTalk and blame them before themselves ,many people do not want to learn about the protocols or devices they use and usually say why cant I just turn it on and it just work the way I want it too. I understand it can be hard for people and that is why I love to help them learn about it. So for me the list is not a real reflection of how good the ISP's are, yes the big hitters have bad call centres but they do have good web sites for help.
  15. To test if it is a modem, ISP or Ethernet cable issue connect your PC directly to the modem and run the tests idle meaning do not download or stream.
