Re: Need advice for plan change.

Quite often I just get 3mb on my 8mb plan on ADSL1.
But that's still double the speed of 1500 and that's assuming you would always max your 1500.
I would say that 60%+ I will see 5mb+ speed.
It's your call...I am fairly happy with mine.

Re: permanent p2p throttling

Alfred, it's an old thread, but you can't block anyone in a domestic router who knows what he's doing. The stripped down Linux system in these doesn't have what is needed. You need a full Linux box. If you want one ready configured, look up Untangle or Ipfire, which can turn an old computer with 2 ...

Re: permanent p2p throttling

You don't need a fancy program.
Just use your router.
All the once I have seen are able to block P2P.
Just make sure you change the password on the Router!!

Re: NBN and Exetel

Did you look at the countries that allegedly (there is no 'evidence') have faster speeds than Australia? Perhaps Australians spend parts of their lives away from their keyboards? When I left (West) Germany about 27years ago, they just finished putting the fibre to every house in our area and were 9...

New Plans suggestion, ADSL/Wireless combos

This might have been suggested before. Ever thought of creating new combo plans, which would tie in wireless access into existing ADSL plans. So let's say for an additional $5,- ~ $8,- Dollars (not including hardware), you are given access to the Network via Wireless as well. this would then be char...

Re: Copyright Infringement Notices

Yep I just received the exact same, word for word. Is this a generic letter to the changes you made??? It mentions no details on who or what we suppose to have infringed. In 10 plus years of using the Internet, I never have received such a thing and unless it states some details, it's a bit hard to ...

Re: Internet Semi-Down? Can't connect to servers outside AUS

It should be clear to you that this was an unplanned outage, not of Exetel's making. As such, I cannot see the purpose of your post. Gidget So what is the purpose of this whole forum but to point out when things are going wrong. As I can see not everybody is asking for help but just pointing out wh...

Re: Blocked by Exetel for rejecting spam

You have got some options. 1) If you are a small business with limited finances, then I would suggest to install a Linux Mail Server with antivirus software like avard configured on the mail server. 2) If your budged is limited, then somebody in your company will just have to learn how to do this. T...

Re: Internet Semi-Down? Can't connect to servers outside AUS

Yep, very irritating. Beat me to the post. No "planned" or "unplanned" maintenance announced. Can't seem to get through a month any more, without a major incident. Same here. There doesn't seem to be a week going by without loosing/limiting service, either/and/or on Internet or VOIP. I know most of...

Re: VOIP down...again...authentication failure

Thanks Dazzled
That fixed it after re-synching.
Hopefully Exetel isn't prone to change the actual IP address too often.

Re: VOIP down...again...authentication failure

sip1.exetel.com.au = 58.96.1.2
I might change it to the actual IP address and see if that makes thing more reliable.
Thanks for the suggestion.

VOIP down...again...authentication failure

Apart from getting speeds all over the place from 2.1 Mbps/s to 7.5Mbps/s, the VOIP seems to be going down quite often as well. Right now it's down again because of authentication issues, but the data is working at around 2.5Mbps/s to 3.4Mbps/s. By meaning VOIP down, I am talking about 2 ~ 4 times a...

Re: P2P Speeds Between 8 am and 12 Noon

P2P = torrents + other file sharing networks like Kazaa, Gnutella, Limewire, etc. Online game servers and PSN traffic operates on similar, non-standard ports to P2P, but each game should have an "exception signature" which, when detected, excludes it from de-prioritisation. If you think gaming traf...
