I have BT broadband in my office, and AOL broadband at home, both in different towns and exchanges. Forgive my ignorance but in theory should I be able to set up a connection at home to utilise the BT connection using my work user and password etc? Thanks for any advice Robert
Never come across this one before! You said 'in theory' so all things are possible.
I think you would have to set up a third account and configure the PC so you can choose which one to use at home.
I cannot see any advantage in so doing, as Broadband is not metered. If working from home is the reason you ask, and your employer is to provide the service, simply cancel your own. If there is a penalty for this, come to some arrangement with the boss.
If you have an enabled line it is likely you will be able to connect on using any valid account details. You don't dial a number just use a 'username'. There are various test logins available that work on all connections so there is no reason why the theory won't work for others. Can't try it but I'm sure you can! Let us know what happens.
One point to note, if you do have ADSL in one location at the moment you can't just plug in that modem and connect somewhere else you will need another ADSL enable line. The only way I know of doing that is via an ISP so you wouldn't actually be able to save any money.
