No internet since thurs 13 (Sunshine-VIC)

I can't access any other websites other than:
theage.com.au
google.com.au

Forgive me if I repeat anyone's sentiment as I've only lazily skipped over admin's replies and stand-out posts. - There was an AUP within generous bounds to not spoil the business model. Cheers that just defeats the purpose of an "unlimited" plan. if it's not actually unlimited than don't call it "...

Re: Can't access many websites

Have you very recently upgraded to an ADSL2 service? Is your ADSL2 an INCTel/NOTel or BYOLine? What part of Australia do you live in?

Re: Can't access many websites

I tried to log a fault regarding the noise/static in the telephone line with exetel as exetel also provides me with the telephone service, but the automated fault machine just put it down as a "no authentication fault" and then dismissed it as it could see me online!
