Breathe deeply and count to ten. Is anyone else with TalkTalk? When things are working and I don’t touch anything there obviously are no issues, but if I power off or reboot my modem for any reason it refuses to reconnect to the broadband service and I’m forced to contact their support. This is where the swearing starts. Because I’m not using the TalkTalk issued modem it’s all my own fault and they have little sympathy with me. On the phone it takes an age to go through all the basic stuff to prove there is nothing wrong at my end and it just needs them to do some sort of network port reset. I stopped using their box when I couldn’t get a decent connection speed to my NAS drive and I replaced it with a more manly higher specced modem router. More fool me.

It’s been a shocker of a month for me and my credit card. Partially broken things that I have been making do with have finally given up the ghost and forced me into a program of replacements and when I say things I mean boring household things, nothing exciting except maybe for my mobile. Add to that some upcoming dental work and you can see why I’m not a happy chappie.
