NTL have kindly repaired our cable. For some reason the level was too high and it was over-driving the modem, so the all the guy had to do was chuck in a 10db attenuator in line and bugger me, it’s fixed.
No doubt they’ve upped the gain a bit to cope with the extra bandwidth that they’re upgrading everyone to. It’s nice to get a 2MB pipe for the same price as our existing 756kB one, but it’d be nice if they didn’t bugger up my evening’s entertainment for nearly a whole week.
Still, I’m pleased it’s working again – time to email some people some complete bollocks, such are my talents ;Â¬)
