Re: Two-wire cabling in house

I have cleaned up the wiring using the round 4-wire telephone cable that had previously been installed. Interestingly, initially, the download speed remained low at between 10-20 Mbps on 50/20 plan. However, after a couple of weeks the download speed has slowly increased to 43 Mbps, which is as high...

Two-wire cabling in house

The connections in my garage from the cat5 cable installed (to the house) and then using about 10m of four-wire round cable and on to a two-wire cable to a terminator wall socket and then to the Netcomm modem was very untidy and so I decided to clean it up using 8metre of my Cat5 cable from the inst...

Re: Netcomm NF18ACV with Synology NAS

I have posted a support request to Netcomm. The support phone just directed me to do this rather than talk with a person. I have attached the NAT/Virtual Servers setup I have made which does not seem to work. This is a laborious process as each entry has to be entered individually, and a mistake mea...

Re: Netcomm NF18ACV with Synology NAS

Hi, Although I can access some of the applications on my DS214se NAS there are some that I can't. These are shown as failures in the router configuration screenshot below. I think this is because there is a conflict between some reserved ports on the NF18ACV modem/router and the ports that the Synol...

Re: FTTN and UPS

Thanks. It seems that in some circumstances I will be able to retain internet access. I will keep the UPS going because I will at least have access to the NAS from other computers. The mobile and powerpack will keep me going for a day. I will turn off Location services and Bluetooth to conserve batt...

FTTN and UPS

I have a UPS to supply my NAS and I also use it to power my ADSL modem. In blackouts, I can still connect to the internet for about an hour, and few blackouts are that long. When I change to FTTN/VDSL2 will a UPS to the new modem still keep the connection to the internet or will that be lost regardl...

Re: Netcomm NF18ACV with Synology NAS

Thank-you.

No Netcomm modems are listed in the long list of Synology Diskstation compatible modems, though not all modems are tested.

Can you state that the Exetel supplied NF18ACV does not have any of the functions listed in the general user guide and specifications disabled?

Netcomm NF18ACV with Synology NAS

I note that the Exetel ZTE modem had features for use with NAS disabled. Is there any disabling on the Exetel Netcomm NF18ACV? I am using a Synology DS214SE (and hoping to upgrade to a DS218+) which connects to modems via ethernet and for which some software it runs requires port forwarding. From th...

Re: SSL Certificates for free webspace

Hi,

While my main Mediawiki problem has been resolved, I have received no answer on the possibility of using a certificate such as provided by Let's Encrypt to allow valid https logins to the Mediawiki site.
