Re: Any Revised ADSL2+ Plans Coming?

I'm not a real super heavy download or anything, but quota is nice........ most would agree. I dont actually use my home phone for anything, so for us it'd just be rental. Call rates are not something I really care about. So for us it's the total cost of the internet and phone packaged together. Tha...

Any Revised ADSL2+ Plans Coming?

Hi Exetel Admins. I'll give you the run down on my question. We have a Exetel ADSL2+ Plan 70GB/60GB for $50 a month, we have Telstra for the Home Phone $30 a month = $80 total. We looked at Exetel ADSL2+ Naked & Phone included plans but none have really taken our fancy. We've been with Exetel for ab...

Re: Exetel - Fails

The modem was rebooted yesterday afternoon.... Perhaps timing didn't suit. Plus I beleive with a virus/spyware block we need to wait 3 hours after processing the block page and then reboot the modem otherwise it continues to route the connection to your block servers ? ... If I am correct. But yes, ...

Re: Wii connection

I just got a Wii and haven't got anywhere with the updating side of things. I've spoke to Nintendo and they remain firm in that it's the 'ISP's fault'. Now someone above just had sucess in updating the wii off another internet connection ....... I may have to try this myself. I dont see how Exetel w...

Re: Exetel Down-Blocked? What is this error

Alright, I shall give you a quick run down. Running a Dlink 2740B (192.168.1.x) which runs into a TP Link Lite-N Cable Modem (172.16.0.x), subnets 255.255.0.0 - DHCP dished out via 2008 Standard Server. Clients run through a VM'd 2003 Standard Server (SP2) with ISA 2006. So essentially computers get...

Re: Exetel Down-Blocked? What is this error

Different computers, different problems. Dont just have one. I think this will be a conversation that will go nowhere. Either way I'm sure at some stage you guys will be required to improve on this situation with regards to the blocking users.

Re: Exetel Down-Blocked? What is this error

Alright. Yesterday when this happened, I tried reseting the routers etc and there was no change. Today when linking the exetel back up I was presented with a spam block page. So it was obviously caused by a spam block, but see thats the problem ........ half the time with you guys when something hap...

Re: Exetel Down-Blocked? What is this error

No i'll just wait, i'm a tech/sys admin myself....... it was working, just stopped so they are either messing with it or something else is up. I'll wait it out and i'm sure they'll fix whatever it is or it'll fix itself.

I just wanted to know what it was, because I couldn't access the block pages.

Re: Exetel Down-Blocked? What is this error

Yeh as I said couldn't even get to that page. EDIT: So ok i didn't even know they ran a proxy........ perhaps thats why in peak the web speeds are super slow, the proxy is probably having a fit being unable to deal with the traffic. eg. YouTube buffering which no doubt would also be highly affected?...

Re: ADSL2 Unlimited Plans (For Exetel Users Only)

Personally I think 'unlimited' is a bad word probably for ISP's..... I would hate to see you guys get swamped with 24/7 leeching torrenters. I know other ISP's have begun offering 'unlimited' services but I personally cant see how some people can download so much. I think a more appropriate plan wou...

Over the past week and a half the ability to browse sites and say watch YouTube content etc has been rather pathedic at times........ Across 3 seperate Exetel services here i...
