Re: Evening Speed issues adsl2

I'm having speed issues too. The techs did a line check and everything and found nothing wrong. Are you guys on optus based plans? I'm in parramatta. I'm wondering if changing to AAPT will make things better? I can't see the option to change my adsl to the AAPT or telstra ones though. Is this possib...

change to old plan?

I'm currently on INC2DSLA plan and I've been going over the quota every month so I wanted to step up to the next bracket but don't want to move to the new plans. Is this possible?

Re: Shaping badly implemented

just saw this post now so it's a bit late but for the information of anyone else searching this up later 1) The speed limiting is only for 2gb then it reverts to full speed 2) The speed limiting will not be applied if you are downloading something already in the exetel cache Combine these together a...

Re: settings for Siemens Gigaset c470IP

I assume you mean to enter exetels info at: Settings > Telephony > Connections > General Provider Data I cant get to there. Right now under Telephony the only options that I can see are: >Default line (which is set to VOIP) >Connection assistant (which takes me directly to select your country for a...

Re: Shaping badly implemented

Yeah I think I can understand some of the history behind why things are they way they are now but for a new user it is very confusing. I guess you've tried different things and because you weren't able to get a satisfactory system going you're now moving away from it entirely and not offering shapin...

Re: settings for Siemens Gigaset c470IP

Thanks for refreshing my memory - see also http://www.freshtel.net/help/guides/siemens_gigaset_c470ip and make the necessary changes. Ahh good link. There's an echo test number there too which I think is a free call from the freshtel provider. So you can see if your sound is working without having ...

Re: Shaping badly implemented

Mobochono, I'm not staff, and I was half in jest, but any Linux can do it (details on the various help sites and forums) . A ready made free no brainer with protection of Windows boxes in mind is at http://www.untangle.com/Demos-Screenshots The basic setup is free, with some extra modules paid for....

Anyone done this? I got i...

Re: Shaping badly implemented

Yes, you would pay for what you use, fancy that concept! Exetel is a very honest company, and if you don't think this is the case, you should probably consider moving to a company like Telstra............ No the point is if you elect to use shaping and don't actually get shaped you end up paying $3...

Re: Shaping badly implemented

I have some sympathy for mobochobo - some of you blokes haven't had teenagers yet. Mobochobo - there are still ways to rein 'em in - be like a business, and run the network through a gateway router/computer and you can control what and how much each machine downloads. Because teens know better than...

Re: Shaping badly implemented

it's $3/gb so you have no idea how much it's actually worth, especially given the speed you can download in ADSL2 I could easily rack up several hundred dollars in a day if I wanted to. But as I said I was half-considering it. It's a matter of principle, if it's happening to me then it's also probab...

Re: Shaping badly implemented

Thanks for sorting that out Jason. I was half thinking about taking this up with the TIO but instead I will be posting your praises on Whirlpool.

On optus I was on shaped plan so any excess was $0. But I totally understand why exetel wouldn't want to offer this given the number of leechers who would abuse it.

Re: Shaping badly implemented

Ticket number is 1745785 What is the point of shaping then? I actually do watch what I download (The usage monitor from exetel providing day by day usage is awesome much better than when I was with optus) but it was blown in 1 night. I'm not really a heavy downloader (my offpeak is only 6gb this mon...

Shaping badly implemented

I don't think your shaping system is fair. I just signed up to exetel a month ago and turned on shaping in order to avoid an ugly bill at the end of the month. Since it is school holidays I thought I'd turn off the shaping as I expect the kids will go overboard while they're at home and didn't want ...
