Semi-Technical DSL Questions (Telco people, or CLEC people report in!)

Question: Semi-Technical DSL Questions (Telco people, or CLEC people report in!)

Ok, I have ADSL at home, line-shared (comes in on the same wires as my phone)
My GF is moving in, and we want to basically switch the telephone service over to hers.

My question : (2 parts, rather complex to me...)

1) If I disconnect my telephone service, will my DSL be affected?

2) If we "move" her phone service over to my house, will the DSL be affected by the move?
I hope i'm clear on what we're doing.

I'm cancelling my phone service then moving her phone service to my place.

Preferred Solution: Semi-Technical DSL Questions (Telco people, or CLEC people report in!)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Semi-Technical DSL Questions (Telco people, or CLEC people report in!)

Because the DSL service is linked with the phone number to the line it runs, if the phone service goes, so does the DSL.

Once again, if the number to the line is being moved, that has to be updated at DSLAM and the phone companies databaste. Thus, with the line being moved, the DSL will have to be reactived as well.

This is the same reason it takes several days for the phone company to activate your phone line for DSL to your house.

Over the weekend, the one-millionth person registered to sign-up for the Windows Insider Program and download and install the Windows Technical Preview, Microsoft says, and unprecedented level of pre-release involvement for Windows. That this comes less than two weeks into the availability of the preview is a positive sign for the future success of Windows 10.

"This is going to be a different Windows," Microsoft's Joe Belfiore notes in a post celebrating this milestone. "We're going to share our plans and progress with you earlier and more often as we want to build a Windows that everyone will love and really enjoy using. I'm excited for the level of participation we've seen."

Here are some interesting bits Mr. Belfiore provided about the Windows Technical Preview.

1 million users in about 10 days. As noted up front, over 1 million people have installed the Windows Technical Preview.

200,000 pieces of user-initiated feedback (or UIFs) have been submitted to us via the Windows Feedback app from Windows Insiders.

Most installs are on real PCs. Only 36 percent of Windows Technical Preview installs have been in virtual environments like Hyper-V. So 64 percent of the installs are on actual PCs.

When Win 10 launched, how Firefox complained, and in general how people were blaming MS to overly promote edge and seeing the popups of not removing edge as their default browsers, but what about this...(the screenshot) I see this at least twice a day from avast antivirus, sometimes it says "try chrome, has extension support, switch to a better browser". Now is this fair!!
*forgot the "v" in every in title. :|

Answer:And people blamed Microsoft for overly promoting edge eerywhere, forcing people..

Avast sucks... no matter how you see it or when you see it years ago or today, it sucks and it will always suck. even if it didn't tell you about installing chrome it will still suck.
Especially when it looks like another adware installed on a computer. the question is, why are you using Avast? or why did it become "popular"?
I like how you say they mention "extensions = better", when the only extension people really care is Adblocker and you can pretty much get adguard or adfender or host block as an alternative to the extension while Microsoft adds the support to edge. if a person doesn't care about ads that means they think that's "normal" so don't think ads can be blocked.
I think Edge is good, I like it, it doesn't make me a sandwich but chrome or Firefox won't do that either. I still have Firefox portable for small reasons like when I used WhatsApp web or some video streams that don't go fullscreen when you press the button on Edge.
So, I never saw wrong the way Windows 10 change defaults work now like Firefox complained. and I don't see wrong for Microsoft to display a "Give Edge a shot" message on windows 10 previews when you try to change it.
At least now browsers won't sneak install themselves and be "default" without a person knowing.

Is there a way when creating a Distribution List then place it in the Global Address Book, that only 2 or 3 people can open the Global Address Book and see that 1 Distribution List and not all the other users can see it.
For an example: HR Department wants to have a Full Time personnel distribution list, but only the person in HR Department can see it and all the other users can not see it when they open the GAB.
I've google it and was not able to find anything.

Help! I seem to have a few problems regarding my MSN account when using the Windows Live Messenger. For one thing, the past two times someone added me to the messenger, and that screen comes up where I can choose to add them too, and I do so, for some reason the person automatically is set on Block, as if I did it by mistake. I thought I did it by mistake the first time it happened, but then it happened the same time the next day with someone else, so I know it isn't me. Also, someone who tried to add me just a few minutes ago asked me:
(Also, are you on MSN? I don't see you on there.)
When I am signed in, Status Available, and I checked my Privacy settings, and it says that anyone can see me online and check my status, and I have [All others] on my Allow list, as well as every other option set to what looks like should make it easiest to let people add me and IM me. What could be the problem? This only seemed to start happening a couple of days ago. The only difference I can imagine affecting it is that I began using AVG (free version) for my antivirus, but I didn't change any default settings. Any help would be great! It's a shame we can't contact MSN directly anymore for help.

Answer:Help! People adding me to MSN automatically blocked, & myself invisible to new people who added me.

I'm having the exact same problem here and I would like to know how to fix it.

So I am using and am trying to import a list of contacts through the people App. Is there honestly no way to import a CSV file or just import more than one contact at a time? When I use the People App import feature it says "The file is empty or not in the correct format. Please choose a different file". I have researched this and made sure that the columns were set up to be First Name, Last Name, Email Address and it is saved as CSV for sure. I have about 70 contacts to import so I really dont want to type all of their info or try and copy and paste one person at a time.... Thank you!!

Post a huge error log file on how your video card crashed. Whats the most common answer?

"Update your drivers"

I seriously doubt ANYONE can actually read those longass logs and be able to comprehend and troubleshoot off them...just my thought (I know I cant and I've been working on computers since I was little)

But this is the real problem I have, and I swear if anyone asks for the log, you're not getting it

There isnt really a consistency with this problem but I will, at times, randomly get the Blue Screen Of Death and then it says the driver Nv4_display.dll is the source of the problem. Well after search after search on google to see if any forums had talked about this issue, all I found was

"Gimme your log"
"Update your drivers"

and then the person who was asking for help would do so, and then say that it didnt work and now more errors were coming up. I am currently running a

Gigabyte Motherboard consisting of:
GeForce 4 TI4800
AMD 2.1GhZ Processor 2800+

Hey, I've got a few questions for people using the SP1 beta on vista. I have the "windows6.0_kb936330_x64"(sp1 beta) not installed yet and I'm tempted to install it to improve memory usage while gaming(i also have the "Windows6.0-KB940105-x64" memory hotfix installed).

My question is have you tried uninstalling the SP1 beta? and was it successful to uninstall? I'd like to try it out but if people have problems after they uninstall it or cannot uninstall it, I won't bother installing till a release comes out that can be properly removed.

Answer:Vista SP1 beta questions for people using it

I had a backup of my Vista pre SP1 beta made on another drive before I went ahead and installed it. It's basically a compilation of hotfixes at the moment. I found I already had about half of them installed. So far no ill effects.

Alright, my computer broke recently and I finally understood the time backups can save, I'm sort of inexperience but have some basic/high level understanding of the system, so I need some assistance from the kind experts here!

Question 1:

If you create a disk image and back up your harddisk, which has a size of 1TB, can the image be backed up to a harddisk of 1.5TB without side-effects?

What's actually going on when you restore a disc image?
What happens with the empty space as old partitions only uses the size you've set?

Question 2:

Although I've read that creating a disc image is like a 100% clone of your hard disk entirely, is this true?

Question 3:

If I've used tools such as those disc alignment/advance format tools on my harddrive, will this affect the backup in anyway should I restore a disc image to a hardrdrive that doesn't support advance format?

These questions are really hard to google so I decided to ask them here, I'm really grateful for any amount of support I'll get!

Answer:Hello people, I have several questions(Back up related)

Hi Questions and welcome to Seven Forums.

To answer your questions.

1. Yes proveided there is sufficient free space on the 1.5 TB HDD. An image will normally take between 50-60% of the size of the data you are backing up. That is the used data not the size of the disk. The restore will return your disk to the state it was when you took the image.

2. It is not truly a clone as it doesn't normally back up unused storage but in effect it is a clone of all the data that is on your drive.

3. You don't need to worry about that. The image is just a file or files that contain enough information to put everything back the way it was when you do a restore.

Brand Spanking NewbiePeople tile large and set for activeLOTs o' contacts listed when I click on tile

When I first installed Windows 8, I used my Microsoft account and the People tile was full of userpix.

Then I decided that I wanted to keep it simple, i.e. local account only. It didn't take me long to figure out why that was a bad idea so I went back and reset it to use my Microsoft account.

My people folder(?) - when I click on the people tile, my screen fills with all the contacts listed in my accounts (google, microsoft and twitter - I don't do facebook or linkedin or the others).

BUT the People tile itself remains empty. Just a red rectangle with the white people graphic. How can I get my people back in it???

Answer:Where are the people in my people tile?

Well, after a couple of reboots for other reasons, now the people are back in the people tile.

However, now the mail tile no longer shows unread mail.

The wifi connection (set as auto connect) never auto connects at reboot.

And IE refuses to remember my desired home screen.

I'm thinking that maybe there are some things Microsoft has yet to fix OR my ASUS UX31 Winows7 laptop did NOT want to be upgraded...

But when I try to install windows, nothing works! Windows XP: I'm intsalling a fresh copy of the OS with the 6 setup disks... First, there's a bunch of errors, when I get throught them, at the last disk, there's a blue screen appearing with a fatal error message and everything stops before the actual installation of winXP begins. Windows 98: The installation stops at the preparation: FREESES!

Here're my other specs: 256 DDR 2100Mhz, Seagate HDD 20Gb, HP DVD+RW 400i, ASUS 52X CD-ROm drive. That's all. I've updated the MB to the latest BIOS version.

Well if it works on your old computer it could possably be the motherboard is shot. I dont think this has any relationship to windows errors though. Try a new hd or take one u have and put it in that computer. Now if it works its either the os or the hard drive. Now if its one of those get a new os see if that works if not the hd probably has bad sectors and u should get a new one.

Answer:may help some people

The directions may seem long and complicated but they are really not as bad as first glance makes them seem. Hundreds of PC novices run them without a problem each week.

You have started multiple threads and we have given you the same answer each time. You need to stay in one thread and complete the directions given or we will not be able to help you.

Most people are under the very mistaken misconception that HijackThis is a malware removal tool. It is not! HijackThis is simply a tool that is used to identify browser hijackers and in some cases it will show entries for 'some' malware that is for instance running at startup. All it does is list a few of the thousands of registry keys that exist and it makes no inferences to whether anything being shown is good or bad. HijackThis does not come close to showing all malware that could be hiding on a PC. Anyone who has an infected computer and is relying on HijackThis without the benefit of running other scans such as Spybot, Windows Defender, BitDefender & Panda, CCleaner, etc. are more than likely still infected. In most cases, where there is one virus/trojan there are more. The goal of this forum is to remove all malware, and this cannot be done properly by just seeing a HijackThis log.

My People App which is tied into Live Mail does not show anybody in the alphabetical A section although I can pick them up in Live Mail. How can I fix this?


Answer:People App

Hi Roger, welcome to the Ten Forums.

The People App by default only shows the contacts of your Windows sign in Microsoft Account. All other accounts need to be manually added. In your case the most probable explanation is that you have no contacts starting with A on the MS Account you use to sign in to Windows, but you have those on another email account you use with Live Mail.

If this is the case add all your accounts to People App. Click / tap the three dots button, select Settings:

Well it WAS working, but I've since rolled our DHCP server to a new box (temporarily) and then brought it back to the original server. RIS is now broken. I get "No reply from server" when trying a RIS Boot disk.

Thinsgs I have done:
Made 3 RIS disks with the rbfg.exe program
Made sure the DHCP server is authorized
Verified the RIS server in the Remote Install tab
Verfified that the machines are getting valid IP addresses on the proper subnet (each department has it's own scope/subnet)
Even gone so far as to set a reservation by MAC address for the box that needs to be RIS'd
Stopped/restarted the TFTP and BINL services.

I mean... WTF? I'm not a tard.. or maybe I am.. can anyone think what may be worng with my setup? I NEED RIS TO WORK AGAIN. I have like 10 PC's coming in this week.

I work in IT. Every time I talk to someone about Windows 8, they say "I'd update, but I don't have a touchscreen" or "I have Windows 8, but it's not as good because it's not on a touchscreen device". I have Windows 8 on my desktop, my laptop, and a Surface RT. My desktop does not have a touchscreen, and while my laptop does, I only use it when I have it in tablet mode (Lenovo Yoga 13). I find Windows 8 to be easy enough to use without a touchscreen. My girlfriend, who is not technologically advanced, finds using Windows 8 on the desktop to be just fine. She actually likes it more than Windows 7.
So why do people feel the need to have a touchscreen to use Windows 8?
I've personally informed people that it's easy enough to navigate around and if they get stuck with something, they can easily find tutorials on YouTube. It seems to be helping, but only just. There seems to be this stigma that you HAVE to have a touchscreen to use Windows 8 effectively, and I don't get it.

Answer:Why Do People Think This?

Probably because just about every review of Windows 8 (at least the ones I've seen) say the OS works much better with a touch screen.
Also, due to the price of Windows, most probably find it easier to upgrade while also upgrading their computer.

Answer:Hey people :)..HELP Please !...

You sure can! Check the Data Recovery section here at MajorGeeks (link: If you don't mind spending some money, check out Easy Recovery Pro. It is really easy to use, and does a great job. If you need freeware, check out PC Inspector (link: Hopefully, the sectors where the pics were haven't been over-written with new data. If this has happened, you pics are gone forever. You should be able to recover at least some of them. In the future, burn your stuff to CDRW's. That way, if it turns out you don't need the stuff 6 months later, you can erase the CD and use it again

Hey guys and girls,

Im 23yrs old and live in the UK.

I have a huuuge problem with my PC and i have tried everything to fix it but had no luck.
Everytime i turn my computer on it will either just not start or it will run for a couple of seconds and then completely freeze, on the rare event that it actualy makes it to the log on screen and lets me in it will last for anything from a couple of seconds to i think 40 minutes is the most it has ever lasted and then it freezes completely again.

I have nothing on there that i can not afford to lose so i thought i would re-install windows xp. Unfortunately it freezes during this aswell, if i remember what buttons to press in what order and press them as quick as i can (lol) it will get to the "windows xp professional setup" screen and tell me "setup is formatting..." and there is a % bar underneath it and then.........FREEZES!!!!!

If anyone has any thoughts i would be happy to hear them, i am at the point now of trying out a sledgehammer. lol

You can also test the memory. Google memtest86 and make a bootable disk and test your memory. If you have two or more RAM sticks installed, you will want to remove all but one and test each stick individually. Post back with results.

I just bought a new Dell Inspiron 660. It came with Win 8. Of course there was absolutely NO paperwork in the box. Thanks Dell. Anyway, I've had it for almost a full month and am so aggrevated by Windows 8. #1 I went to 'Classic Shell' and downloaded the start for windows 7 (which I am used to). Now I'm having a problem
putting my files and pictures where they belong. What happened to the Libraries? Okay set up sky drive. I didn't really want my pics and documents on the Ethernet. #2 When I called Dell support they told me I'd have to purchase a new Win 7 program for installation. (this is understandable) The tech then asked why in the world would I want to downgrade to Win 7. Well, I'll tell ya. I like things simple in my life. I'm not a techie nor am I an idiot. To bad windows thinks that what they deem simple is alittle more involved for some of us. Also,
not everyone is a school age person. Finally my question is: Is it worth it for me to invest in a new Win 7 program (about $90), or should I bite the bullet and succumb to the Microsoft techies demands that we all

First of all, choose a better title. Titles such as "Help me plz" & such will only get your thread ignored by many.

Enabling FastWrite will not change your gameplay performance by much but it can certainly have a big impact on system stability. The ATI SmartGate offers to test out your system & judge if enabling certain features such as FastWrite is worth the performance/risk. Apparently, on your system, it is not worth taking that risk.

I really didn't like all that well for a lot of things because with each and every mail you had to go through several steps on each email to see HTML Anyway - how do I find out about the REMOTE spamming because something / someone is definitely screwed up. Aaack!!!


I think you'll find that most users' email is hacked from time to time through no fault of their own. When it happened to me a year and a half ago, it was the result of being hacked. I changed my password and the problem ended.

For those of you who regularly read my ramblings you'll probably know I'm quite a fan of the power of Google, I keep a copy of their cheat sheet under my mattress

Anyway I got bored today and decided to do some data mining, see how much I could find out about an individual based on their browsing habits, as we all know this is gold dust for advertising networks who can then target the ads that you're most likely to click. For example, with some basic data mining techniques we can find out whether a user likes to watch lots of free movies online (with illegal streaming) and if so, we can target him with a free movie & codec adverts.

Obviously it goes a lot deeper than that but I thought I'd share a case study or two just to show you how easy it is to uncover a incredible amount of information about people with just a single search.

And on a side note, for any of you interested but in the dark, there was a an incident a few years ago in which AOL 'released' a ton of anonymous data, showing what an individual anonymous user had searched for. You can find the original dumps pretty easily with, yep, you guessed it... Google

Anyway on to the main heart of the thread, the search query I use to dig up data on a particular user is as follows: intext:"N********r" intitle:Reputation

If you want to mine forum posts as well just remove the last part (intitle). Anyway, this particular user I searched for, his username ce... Read more

I hope this is the right place to post this, I have a tendency to post in the wrong groups. Anyway, I'm looking for a way to be able to see who is on my site, or how many people are there, and allow them to contact me if they wish. I've seen the pay services like Human Click, which are great, but too deep for my pockets. I'm really looking for something cheap (spell that free) and simple. I know that ICQ and AIM have their online indicators and instant message panels, which is the right idea, but also important is a way to know when and how many people are on the site. Did I make this adequatley confusing? Thanks for your time and advice. My server supports cgi, PHP, ASP, Server side includes, Mysql. I'm not so sure I do though.

Answer:I want to be able to see people on my site

Hey All,
So over the weekend my People App was acting funny, kind of hard to explain, but regardless I did a "reset" on the app through the "advanced options" via the "uninstall app" menu. Upon resetting it, it won't even open now.
Thinking that the People App was somehow mysteriously tied with the Mail and Calendar App, I reset the Mail and Calendar App as well hoping to force a "resync". Boy...did that screw that things up.
Now none of my Mail or Calendars show, and the People App still doesn't open. I have already been through the traditional menu screens to set everything up after the reset and still nothing. Any words of wisdom to get my Mail, Calendar, and People App to resync?
Thanks in advance folks

Im after a geniuine review of my website as I have no idea what people think, I would like some real critism so I can hopefully improve it. Its my first attempt using dreamweaver, and I thought it ok for first attempt any ideas. Thanksclick here

Answer:1st website, what do people think?

Create a proper header rather than something tucked in corner, put factory kitchens on one line on slightly different background and place content under this as it looks rather bitty having kitchen range menu and so on running up in line with logo.Create pages as percentages rather than pixels on my 1024x 768 resolution everything is over on the left creating an ugly gap on the rightYou need to have navigation bar on top or side of page not at bottom people shouldn?t have to scroll down every time they need to look at another page.Left justify Kitchen range menu having it right justified can be hard to follow the start of each word as you read downThe text size could also be increased by 1 or 2 sizes. It?s a little bit of a struggle to read on higher resolution screens.Links should be in different colour than normal text try and make the navigation buttons stand out a bit more maybe have them as a proper button or use style sheet to have the text on different colour to give button effect. Also can you squeeze a few more KB out of the images? You are going to struggle to produce complex perfect layouts with things like Dreamweaver and FP unless you know a bit of HTML and can then edit the code yourself, so keep layout simple

We are trying to set up a medium sized lan for our hostels. There will be around 300 users.

The plan of the hostel (3 floors) is as follows :

We have access to a few gigabit switches and some 100mbps switches

(all are L2 switches DGS1008D and DES1008D)

We have something like the following setup.

We get 1 wire for internet coming from the campus which needs to be distrbuted to everyone.

Requirement is maximum file transfer speeds followed by LAN latencies for LAN gaming.

Last year what we did was connect the gigabit switches in a line (bus) and then connect the 100 mbps switches to the gigabits and the users were connected to the 100mbps switches (the high usage users to the gigabits directly where possible)

Is there a better / more optimum solution possible?

Would it be better to have a star topology with a better switch at the center and the gigabits connected to it in a star?

What equipment would be required for such purpose?

Please keep in mind that we would like it as cheap as possible since we already have most of the gigabit switches and 100mbps switches on hand and have approx 300USD equivalent in INR for additional equipment.

Your inputs and feedback would be highly appreciated.

Thanks a lot in advance

NIT Calicut, India

Answer:300 people LAN advice

I'd recommend a more star-ish design as you mentioned. The bus design is going to cause a lot of latency problems in high usage situations, especially if devices towards the end of the chain need to talk to devices on another end.

Assuming you don't need a router as your gateway, you can go with any cheap HP/Cisco switch you can find.

I think your biggest problem is going to be users hogging bandwidth. If the software on your switches allows for it, you may want to use some form of QoS or bandwidth limiting.
