Moving house and taking ADSL with me

I'm in the process of moving out of my house where I have my PN ADSL line installed.

The new house is ADSL enabled - in fact, ADSL is already installed for my housemates BT Openworld setup.

Can I pay my 30 quid and move my CLI number over to the new place, without buggering up his BT account? Essentially, I'd connect to PN whenever I go online and he'd connect to BT whenever he goes online?

If I can't migrate my account, this is going to be worse than not being able to get ADSL in the area - I can get it, it's already installed, but I can't bloody use it! Sad

I had hoped I could just plug in, authenticate and away we go, but although I get a sync on the box, I can't authenticate...

Sitting here praying for a "good" answer!

RE: Moving house and taking ADSL with me

Hi There,

Unfortunately there isn't a 'good' answer to this. When BT setup ADSL they effectively hard code the ADSL realm used to the BT line. If this line already has DSL with a BTopenworld connection it is impossible to use this with a plus.net realm without first cancelling the BT openworld connection.

I'm afraid the only solution is going to be to have a second BT line installed in the house.

With Regards,

I was afraid that was going to be the case. What makes it really bloody annoying is that he hardly uses the thing! Sad

In the immortal words of my dear old mum, "Bugger".

The only other option I have is to network mine and his PC's and live off his subscription, cancelling my PN account, but he's got a poxy USB BT modem which makes it difficult to network and he's also very wary of me "messing" about with his PC.

I wonder if I could persuade him to move out? Smiley

Thanks for the prompt reply Ian - I'm off to sulk and decide what I'm going to do to get back online at decent speeds...

You could use your mode/router or whatever you have to connect to his BT account ?? you don't have to use his 'poxy usb modem'

Just a thaught.
