Re: No Longer Connecting On ADSL2

Yeah, I am on what used to be called naked, so nothing is plugged in except the modem. No other sources of interference as far as I can tell...

Is it possible I am on ADSL1 for some reason? Should I reply to the email and re-open the ticket?

Re: No Longer Connecting On ADSL2

And I think your "As The Crow Flies" estimate would be very accurate, probably about 1.5ks - Nice estimation!

Re: No Longer Connecting On ADSL2

Okay, I don't know if I confused you, but both modems are working, except the one I own I have to force to ADSL instead of ADSL2+ to get line sync. Unfortunately I am not sure what the line attenuation was before the trouble, but I will provide both modem's link speeds and attenuation for comparison...

No Longer Connecting On ADSL2

Hello, We have an issue with our Internet that started on Thursday night - we lost sync all of a sudden on our router. I submitted a ticket with Exetel, and finally got an SMS on Sunday saying that Exetels supplier had restored service, but we still did not get sync. We are using a Billion 7404VGPO....

Re: Wii connection

I had the exact same issue...and it lasted for weeks. I tried everything I had seen on the internet and could not anything to solve the problem...until someone recommended taking the Wii to a friends place who has a different ISP. So I turned my Nexus One into a Wireless Hotspot (with Vodafone) and ...

Re: Unable to load www.nvidia.com - among others

ANSWER: Power cycle your ADSL modem. Even though it seems to be working, something must be cached or something.

Unable to load www.nvidia.com - among others

Hi, I am unable to load the www.nvidia.com website. If I try to ping it, it resolves to a1650.g.akamai.net [220.233.2.170] but does not get a reply. It has been like this for (at least) days now, I have tried manually specifying DNS servers to no avail. Other sites like facebook seem to be very slow...

Re: Sent to blocked page, not over quota

Okay, so I only accepted the first checkbox, and it seems to have let me back online. So I now I have some questions: 1) Whenever I cross my quota in the future, will I be redirected to this "blocked" page, regardless of the period that I use up all my quota in? 2) The second section (Future Downloa...

Sent to blocked page, not over quota

I have the problem that I crossed my off peak usage (by less than the permitted 2GB), but am currently in the peak period, yet I cannot use my remaining peak internet quota until I accept the excess usage charges (which I do not want to do - I dont ever want to use more than my quota). I am on this ...

Re: Blocked for Peak usage during Off-peak period

I think it is BS. How can your crossing of Peak quota affect your off peak quota? If I pass my limit from one period, THIS SHOULD NOT AFFECT THE OTHER PERIOD. I think he should have been reimbursed some what (either a credit or extra quota next month), he was robbed of the service he legitimately pa...

Re: P2P Improvements

It seems to me that a lot of people here don't understand that the bit torrent data transfer model is a very unstable one. There are many things that will affect your download performance and only a fraction of that is something Exetel has any control over. Some of the many things are: 1. The way Ex...

Re: P2P Improvements

Very interesting read. How will this change affect encrypted traffic? For example VPN tunnels or other encrypted protocols?
