The land that DHCP forgot.
(Written: 30/08/2019, Updated: 04/12/2023)

I've just spent a day doing a really fascinating bit of network diagnostics. And yes, you should imagine me saying this very loudly in a painfully nasal voice.

This sort of statement is usually the precursor to sensible men abandoning their pints and running screaming into the night.

I made a video about the problem, and everything. The video was 90 minutes long. That's a whole feature film's worth just about 1s and 0s bouncing around in a tangle of wires and wireless links.

When I've had some sleep and regained some necessary perspective I might update this article with some actual details.

Until then, please think of this as the technical equivalent of a Hollywood teaser trailer.

You can't wait, can you? You're going to have difficulty sleeping with anticipation. It's like Christmas. I know, I know.

Have patience. the 1s and 0s are coming... And this time, DHCP is for everyone.

Often they don't realise that mobile broadband is available to them. Even in marginal signal areas, 2-4 Mb/s offers some hope for people in these so-called "not-spots". Read More
