When I used Sky (not for Broadband)they were always difficult to deal with.

Doesn't augur well for VoIP, at least for the independent suppliers.

Their advice made me smile... 'You might wish to set your phones to automatically failover to the PSTN or mobile networks'

I don't understand why they can't mitigate against such a basic attack.

Just checked VoipFone's status page https://www.voipfonestatus.co.uk and it looks as though they are still suffering.  And it's now a week since these attacks started.

I'm on iPhone. I have no clue how to change channels, update the firmware.

I've been with Idnet since 2008 because back then, only Idnet could offer a weak ADSL signal but I'm not someone having a router expertise.

I'm unable to do the tasks mentionned in your reply.

Noelle, have you tried changing the WiFi channels on your Router? could be other WiFi users around you using the same channel causing interference and weakening your signal. If you use an Andriod phone I would recommend you download Netgear WiFi Analyser app. from the Play store. This will tell you your signal strength and what other WiFi networks are in the area and which Channel they are on.

Thanks a lot for your answer.

My neighbours have Sky and Virgin and I receive their signal stronger than mine in most rooms.

I shouldn't have to do all this step to have a proper wifi.

Maybe Idnet is not for me anymore.

Houses in our area are being swapped out as an 'enhancement' by BT - it is causing a bit of concern as folks find they have lost their phone lines as many do not understand that is what is happening.

I suspect they've already suggested the easy options
Firmware
Router position
Aerials
Interference
Router uptime - I use DSL Stats http://dslstats.me.uk/ to see what goes on in the Billion

However, probably the best thing I can suggest is a Wifi strength app on a mobile. It will give you a good idea of what is happening and where.

Do you have any form of wifi enhancer or boosters for different parts of the house?
