I am being asked for IP address of this Sky box ????? It is showing 0.0.0.0 at moment.Also showing Connection to broadband router fail.

well weve found the problem :)

to the right of the status box does it have a reconnect option? if not have you tried the reset? otherwise would try pressing the WPS button on your router and then the WPS button on your sky box to try and connect

Reset button (red) doesn’t seem to do anything. What is WPS button ?

I have solved the problem and it did involve a branch. 😀 Our dish is on the ground, and I always keep the shrubs around it cut back. What I hadn’t noticed was a branch from a tree nearby had just dropped in front of the dish.A good attack with cutters and we are all good. Just in time for Mrs H to watch ‘A Place in the Sun’ 👍

Thanks for all the help. I love modern technology.

Almost being taken out by an old woman in a car on my way back from a bike ride yesterday... I was on the cycle path/pavement. She then almost hit a car on the other side of the road and then stalled it. I and the driver of the car she almost hit and i watched in disbelief as she drove away mounting the pavement again..then almost hitting another car coming the other way as she again drifted onto the other side of the road.

Don't think she should be behind a wheel.
Hope you reported her to the police.

Or maybe I just want to call out people for making false comparisons to justify their stance?
They’re using comparisons to point out others hypocritical thinking. We are all guilty of it being bias creatures mind and “whataboutery” certainly knocks you back on track to reality.

You can’t argue about pilots doing an air show and getting flight time in and then jet off for your summer hols. You can’t get in your car to travel infact you shouldn’t even own one. you cannot do any polluting activities bar pass gas out your backside.

To be against pollution, your must not pollute yourself.

Pet insurance!!
I've never made a claim but the premium renewal has gone from £250, for my little mongrel, to £411.
That's an increase of over 60%!

Any suggestions for good pet insurance companies?

I use bought by many but only as it was best for one of my dogs as he needs pre existing cover.

Go compare have an option for pet insurance.

Some will love petplan, and vets are usually positive about them.
