Payphone will be okay then as the checker would flag up if it was using 'meter pulsing' signalling which is an incompatible product.

Get shot of the Payphone for starters; with unlimited call plans available it becomes unnecessary luxury, Bar calls outside the plan. An alarm presumably means "Red Care"; no problem there as it will happily co-exist with ADSL or FTTC. Have wired wireless access points using Ethernet over power if necessary, Get a decent router like the Draytek 2830vN for a whole range of configuration options where you could have the option to use VoIP as well without any special phones. Issue sorted.

Useful to know about the router - but we would certainly need to recable the phone socket (when we had a fault last year the BT engineer was less than complimentary about the way 'somebody' had connected an extension to move our payphone).
And of course neither are close to a power socket!

Shame that you are not local to use.

Thanks

Russell

To enlarge on the suggestion of testing with a router, inSSIDer etc, I suggest that instead for the convenience of not needing Mains, you load inSSIDer 2 on one laptop or netbook; and Connectify on another laptop, their batteries giving you greater freedom to roam around etc, testing different locations.

-------------------------------

I find inSSIDer 2 more convenient than later versions.

If I remember correctly, the free version of Connectify switches OFF after about 30 minutes; but is readily restarted.

I suspect that given that 5 GHz Wi Fi is still not too common, you should concentrate on 2.4 GHz as giving generally better penetration and coverage.

When I tested around my house, garden etc, 5 GHz was generally 10 db worse/lower than 2.4 GHz, the source being an EE Brightbox 2, so a "regular" Wi Fi source, in its normal working location..

In reply to a post by RussellR:
Although the Hall has been in place since 1926, Royal Mail do not have us on their database so I can't use the address checker (I've asked them to look into this).


I am the Chair of a Charity's management committee and had the same problem with the attached caretaker's house. Both hall and house built in late half 1800s.

To get onto Royal Mail's database, you need to contact the planning department at your local council. They do this sort of thing all the time, from new developments to where flats have been made within existing properties. In theory an easy job, but took us ages. I am also a County Councillor - which may have been the reason... wink

It would be interesting to know what has happened over the past year - any progress?
