Looks like I got lucky! WellI do have a spare linksys spa3102 which I could loan you for testing, would that be of any use?
Thanks for the offer, that is kind of you since you don't know me, but I will decline.
for a couple of reasons, the main one being that I don't like borrowing stuff , the second is that as the moment i don't require it.
i still got a while to make up my mind tomorrow I am having a visit from the rep of the ISp I am looking at going to, if I decide to go for it, I t will take a couple of weeks for it to be put into place and then I got to sort out phone and old ISP.
TBH, i prefer not to bother, just get rid of phone line, and have no phone at home, but some people I know still phone my home phone and TBH, i don't want my work to know my mobile number.
That is why I don't want to spend a fortune as it is only for a few people including my Dad, but saying that he don't phone that often I phone him and he is thinking of getting a mobile and getting rid of his home phone.
