Re: Netcomm NL1901ACV (Home Wireless Broadband) - Security Setup?

Thanks. Unfortunately, like other users, I am also experiencing the dropouts every couple of hours that only gets fixed if I reboot the modem.

Recently signed up and everything is working fine so far (literally plug and play) but can anyone point me to any step-by-step guides/tutorials regarding the security of the device/connection? Preferably a guide that is specific to this brand of modem. Thanks.

Re: Mobile 1 plan change

On the Exetel (via vodaphone) to Exetel (via Optus) e-mails, it stated that the $20 activation fee would be waived if: 1) The existing vodaphone service is ported; and 2) The service is ordered on or before April 30th, 2011. Is there a reason I was still charged the $20 even though I met the conditi...

It is independent from your computer but it requires a broadband connection to make and receive VoIP calls. Just to clarify, in order to use this phone, I'll need to have the phone co...
