Re: NAS on ZTE H268A

This is crazy. All other service provider modems allow connection to USB device why doesn't Exetel. There is no cost impost to ZTE for providing this feature on their modem.
Is there a software hack we can use to get use to get around this stupid restriction?

Re: NAS on ZTE H268A

The ability to use the USB port for network attached HDD is all I need thanks. It would be appreciated if it could be unlocked on my modem.

Re: The Exetel 6-year club

I have been with Exetel continuously for 9 years. I receive no loyalty discount. How do you get this? And why have I not been offered it?

Re: FTTN VDSL Modem recommendations?

Thanks
These use old wifi technology (only up to 802.11n).
Most new devices are now capable of using the faster 802.11ac wifi.
I trust Exetel will keep up with other RSP's and start providing the Netcomm NF17ACV. It is made especially for the Aust & NZ fibre markets

Re: FTTN VDSL Modem recommendations?

If you can supply the NF8AC is it also possible to supply the VOIP equivalent modem - NF17ACV?
Unfortunately the modem (NF10WV) you supply on your NBN plans uses old wifi technology not the newer AC protocol.
