If you are thinking about signing up to Plusnet Broadband, but have some things you are unsure about, then you can get all the answers from their FAQs. Many people have questions about their modems and routers before they sign up, such as which to use, which you can get all the answers to.

Many people want to know if they can use the router they already have when they sign up for a deal with Plusnet. The company recommends using their router unless you are an experienced internet user, and these routers come at a small extra cost to your package. As long as your own router is compatible you should be able to use it, otherwise the Technicolour 582n is available from Plusnet.

If you are trying to use a router you have used from another provider previously it is important to know that providers often lock routers to just their network so you will not be able to use it. If you are signing up for standard broadband you will want to find out whether your router says ADSL/ADSL 2 or ADSL2+ in its description. It can often help to search for the name of the model online. Equally, if you have bought your router from a well-known retailer then it will probably be compatible with Plusnet’s service.

If you are opting for fibre broadband then you will want to check whether your router says Fibre/Cable in its description, or again, whether it is from a high street retailer. If your router does not fill both these criteria then you may want to use Plusnet’s router to be on the safe side. Moreover, if you join fibre broadband with Plusnet you can get a free BT fibre modem.

 

If you want broadband that gives you a little bit extra then it is worth taking a look at what Virgin has for you. This well reputed internet service provider has a range of extras you can choose from to really complete your internet experience and help you personalise it.

When you sign up to Virgin Media Broadband you can select from extras that they have so that you can have a customised internet service. You can get technical support when you need it so that everything is always running smoothly. There are also apps which include the option to have virgin media security so that your computers are never at risk.

Virgin Media Security comes with your package and it protects up to three computers from any kind of malware, phishing and viruses. There are all kinds of risks out there in the internet and this service will make sure you are not in danger. You can also get parental controls which keep your children safe online.

You can also choose to get Virgin Media Mail as an extra. This will give you 10 email addresses so that each member of your family can have their own. You can get spam filters which mean you don’t get junk mail in your inbox, and you can also synchronise your emails to come to your mobile phone too.

Another option is to get PC health check, which will make sure your computer doesn’t get bogged down and start to slow down, which is always a pain. With PC health check you can scan your computer and make sure everything is running smoothly.

You can also get extras such as Identity+ which will give you even more protection online from things like fraud. There is also Live Expert Help which gives you technical support for your other digital equipment.

 

If you are having problems with your broadband connection, as can happen from time to time, then there are a few things you can do to get it up and running as quickly as possible. Often problems with your broadband connection do not require an engineer and can be solved by trying a few simple things.

If your internet connection does seem slower than usual you can try closing your internet browser and restarting it. If this does not yield any results then you can restart your computer or device as sometimes this can get everything working in perfect order again. It can also be worth checking your hardware setup to ensure that everything is properly configured.

Another option can be to connect an Ethernet cable if you were previously using wireless internet, and changing your router settings can also often improve your connection and speed up your browsing. If you are still having a slow connection after these things then you might want to try rebooting your router. This means switching off the Sky hub at the mains plug, then leaving it for 30 seconds before turning it on again. It is best not to reset your Sky broadband or router when you do this as it will delete all the settings you have on it currently.

You might also want to check your microfilters to ensure they are in good working order. These are the small white boxes which have a phone lead on them and were supplied when you got your Sky Router. Often your internet connection can be slow or intermittent if you don’t have these connected around your home as their function is to prevent interference from other devices which use the phone lines such as telephones.

Software Updates for Sky Routers

On August 19, 2013, in Sky Broadband Bundles, by Jay M

Sky LogoBroadband routers and other equipment provided by Sky as part of your package is always being upgraded so that you can get the best service for your needs and budget every step of the way. But what do you need to know about the automatic updates that take place in your Sky router?

Software updates take place regularly, often without you knowing and with minimum disruption to your broadband service, and tend to last between two and six minutes in total. In fact, these updates (which are mostly commanded remotely) take place at night when activity is low. Sometimes however, due to the number of customers who choose to switch off their router at night, these updates must be repeated during daylight hours to ensure every customer gets the best quality service.

When an automatic router update is taking place, you don’t need to do anything at all and must refrain from turning off your hub or router until the update has been completed. Whilst Sky takes time to schedule its software upgrades carefully and conveniently, in the midst of an update you will not be able to use the internet, which confuses many customers who may think there is a problem with their service.

Unsure about whether Sky is running an upgrade on your router software? There is a quick and easy test that can be completed to determine whether an update is taking place in your area. Simply open your browser and type your router number (i.e. 192.168.0.1) into the URL or address bar. Next press enter, this will allow you to access your router’s settings.

You will be required to login, which can be completed by any customer using the username ‘admin’ and the password ‘sky’. If your software is being updated, you will see a ‘no connection’ message for the Sky Hub or an upgrade message on older routers.
