Re: Nimbin - ADSL2+ dropout

A very helpful Telstra man came this morning, listened to the noise on the line, looked at the stats, and checked the line between here and the exchange. He found corrosion in the pit connections, and changed them, came back and checked the result. Said he could find no other faults. That eliminated...

Re: Nimbin - ADSL2+ dropout

The two new modems can't hold a connection at all, but the OLD one, which has a borked interface, can stay up for hours. It can't access some sites though, like Paypal. On that OLD modem, can't access interface (192:168:1:1) or at least not far beyond first screen, then it says page not present or w...
