Excellent Service in Order Process for HSPA

I'm impressed. I've had Exetel on home and work ADSL for a few years now and have been happy with the service: minimal contact as I think I've only had one issue in all that time. I ordered a HSPA service on a WI E plan on the 9/9. Within a minute of hitting "submit", I had an SMS confirming receipt...

Re: Is Telstra's Five Days Accurate?

Try disabling the Internet Gateway (right-click, there should a Status menu item, brings up a dialog with a "Disable" button), and see if that makes any difference. Heh, heh....... Window pops up entitled "Error Disconnecting" Text: "It is not possible to disconnect at this time. The connection is ...

Re: Is Telstra's Five Days Accurate?

If you go to Control Panel, Network Connections, what do you see? There should be a Local Area Connection, which will be the ethernet connection to the router. Are there any others?

Odd - the setup is PC -> Router -> outside world. No other PC in the building needs to be on.

Re: Is Telstra's Five Days Accurate?

Interesting. I've never seen any sort of icon like that in Windows XP: If an actual speedtest shows higher throughput (like 9Mbps, etc) then it might just be a case of a Windows driver / systray icon doing it's own (crappy) pseudo-speed test and getting it wrong. Here's where you can turn it off/on...

Re: Is Telstra's Five Days Accurate?

]I've never heard of an Internet systray icon, only a local network icon which shows the speed of your computer's connection to the modem (i.e. 100Mbps or 1Gbps) Ok. I must have the terminology wrong, sorry. I have two network icons, one says "Local Area Connection: Speed 100MBps Status: Connected....

Fair enough.

I had been hoping for a better download speed than ADSL1, but no matter, at least the bandwidth and price is better on ADSL2.

Re: Is Telstra's Five Days Accurate?

Today: Test run on 07/09/2010 @ 12:09 PM Your line speed is 3.69 Mbps (3689 kbps). Your download speed is 461 KB/s (0.45 MB/s). Upload Test (1MB): kbps: 893.54 KB/s: 111.69 Mbps: 0.89 EDIT: FWIW, the internet icon in the systray (lower right side of screen continues to show 4.2 Mbps as it always has).

Is Telstra's Five Days Accurate?

I upgraded from TELN to TE-2D at work on 30/8, Exetel advising me on 31/8 that "speed upgrade has been completed as requested". Over the past couple of days, I've powered off the modem for 10-20 minutes, but still have line speed of 9.06 Mbps (9063 kbps) / download speed 1.11 MB/s (1133 KB/s). Given...

Re: Please Use This Thread To Advise Exetel Of Typos/Errors

On the main page, the scrolling specials list proclaims "Free Wireless Broadband with every ADSL2 connection". Clicking on "More" takes you to http://www.exetel.com.au/wireless-special-100526.php, which states "No Charge Wireless Broadband Service" Clicking on "Click here to view the plan prices" = ...

Re: Discontinuation of HSPA C3 plan... suggestion...

When I changed plan to OTAW - I didn't get asked what if any modem I wished to purchase? Will Exetel contact me shortly about that? All OTAW plans as well as any mention of free wireless broadband has vanished from all the pricing pages. I upgraded to ADSL2 on the 30th, selected a plan, added a mod...

Re: Please Use This Thread To Advise Exetel Of Typos/Errors

Just upgraded from ADSL1 to ADSL2 via Telstra on the TE-2D plan. On the https://www.exetel.com.au/members/change_service_plan.php page, it lists the various ADSL2 plans, then a heading that says "PLUS a Free Wireless Broadband service with the plans above". I applied for the TE-2D plan and selected ...

Re: 8192/384 Plan Parameters

I have an ADSL1 plan because the line on which the ADSL is applied is under contract (and on a rotary line system) until next July. I'll then switch to ADSL2 with Exetel on the fax line (single line) once it's out of contract.
