I've been noticing this. The results below are showing a 4-5% packet loss as soon as I hit the 'net. International or local traffic doesn't seem to deviate from these figures. Here are some 100 ping packets with approximate time stamps as to when the tasks were run (+/- 5 minutes). Not sure about th...

FXS/FXO Device for Trixbox PABX

Hi Guys, Wanting to know of some FXS/FXO devices that are nice and reliable, that play well with an Asterisk PABX. I'm wanting to have 1 PSTN line "pushed" onto the trix server, and have 1-3 ATA or VOIP phones around the house. I think I want one FXO/FXS unit, and options for either ATA devices or a...

Standalone ATA+PSTN

Hi all, Wanting to get some recoomendations on a solid and reliable ATA for the in-laws. I'm wanting one that has the following: + Support for both VOIP (Exetel) and PSTN (Telstra) + Transparent call plans, so that 13xx/18xx numbers are done via Telstra, local, STD & IDD are done via VOIP + Over-rid...

3k/sec = 180k/min = 10.8mb/hour = 260mb/day = 1.8gb/week if you talk 24/7. So talking for 4-8 hours will chew 1-2Gb per month. 1.8 x 52 / 12 / 3 = 2.6Gb per month (8 hrs/day) 1.8 x 52 / 12 / 6 = 1.3Gb per month (4 hrs/day) If you're replacing a land line with a VOIP line, a family will easily chew ...

Re: Exetel CO2 Emissions

(3) Even if the computer turns (nearly) off all the peripherals would still be running, as well many minor peripherals do not have a power switch, or if they do it still leaves a power brick or plug pack consuming idle power (called a phantom load). This power consumption can be avoided by devices ...

Is there a possiblity that Exetel could look at a text to speech "service status" available from the 1300 number? This sort of thing would be invaluable at times like this - its hard to do anything when there is no service - although the status service wouldn't fix the issues, it sure would be easie...

Hi Anthony, Sorry for the delay in responding. I got down to 1460 (min = 95m/s, max = 97m/s). #1 Try 1464 - if this works, your computer should be working correctly, if default settings are used. I still think that this is a virus/malware problem, or a fault with IE. Have you done the above steps f...

It has to be an opt-in plan. I'll choose where my donations go, and when thanks. Those that ask, tend to be offended by a negative response. If I have to waste time opting out of something that I don't want to participate it - its costing me money. I don't like it when things cost me money - especia...

Do you mean:
ping -l 1500<192.168.1.2 www.exetel.com.au>
?
Just put the one thing there. Either put an IP address, or put a domain name. No brackets either.

Code: Select all

ping -l 1500 www.exetel.com.au

The modem is a netcomm NB5Plus4W ADSL2 + Modem Router. I tried to install spybot but the installation just hangs - seems as though it's having trouble communicating with the web? This would indicate that it can't get out (i think by http) to check/get updates. Is there a specific CMD Prompt test I ...

I haven't plugged the non-working PC into the cable as I don't have a long enough ethernet cable. When I ping my ISP (from the wireless broken PC) I get 4 packets sent and 4 received. How can I check my settings? Reset the modem or something? What other tests should I run to help diagnose? Sounds l...

Can you plug the non-working laptop via an ethernet connection? Can you ping from the wireless connection? It could be that someone has hacked the modem (WEP is not very secure) and changed settings. Alternatively, you could have entered the WEP key incorrectly - are you getting an IP address on the...

Re: Exetel Announces "Naked" ADSL2+ Plans

No - but we're making glacial progress. What we're trying to accomplish is the ability for the customer to transfer their current number to an Exetel VoIP service. Hope its not a silly question - but are you also looking at the ability to transfer the number back to a PSTN service? Whilst its unlik...

This is a once only opportunity, if you miss this then you need to wait for the account to be activated.
Gotta hate when the browsers crash on a once only opportunity :D
