Re: Is ADSL down in Melbourne?

just an update to what is happening now is that I get intermittent connectivity to websites. That is, I can sometimes get to common websites (I am trying Microsoft, The Age, XDA Developers, Whirlpool, SpeedTest) and I can get to them sometimes and sometimes I cant. In all cases it takes > 1 minute t...

Re: Is ADSL down in Melbourne?

I've been looking at it the whole night and cycling my modem. Sometimes I get a connection to one site but then soon after it goes down. I always seem to be able to get to the exetel sites no problem though. I've been looking at my ADSL modem diagnostics and it succeeds on testing the PPP connection...

Is ADSL down in Melbourne?

At about 9:30pm tonight I seem to have lost connectivity to anything except Exetel forums, website and google. Is the internet down for anyone else?

I've cycled my modem and rebooted my computer with no avail.

Hi there I just signed up for the new Z15 mobile plan and am yet to have the SIM being sent to me. I am porting my number over from three. I am just wondering, how does activation work?

nope, and with server problems (frostmourne anyway), its pretty much no hope at getting a decent night of wow until a proper fix is applied.

Re: High latency while using Ventrilo and World of Warcraft

Hi William and Corey I posted in this thread and I can see that you say you have applied the temporary patch to my account. I am still experiencing the issue and I am not sure if you were able to find my correct exetel account as my email was out of sync from the email I use in my account setting. A...
