Miroku, could you please identify the game you are attempting to play as well?

The whole point of a Naked ADSL service is to provide a data service, and remove the voice service from the line, so therefore no calls will be possible using the 'traditional' phone service once the service is cut over. This is the reason that Exetel bundle a VOIP service with the connection. I wou...

I will add though ... let us know if it still looks to be dropping out.

The changes in sync speed you commented on could be that it's dropping sync with the exchange and reestablishing the connection - I'd watch the DSL/WAN light on your router like a hawk when this occurs.

I'm a bit concerned that it's passing through 10.1.1.5 and 10.1.1.1 before it reaches the outside world. Do you have two NAT routers between you and the Internet (ie. ADSL router + Linux firewall?) It might not be the only problem, but it could be contributing. The spike is occurring right after 10....

Fatal, It could be a packet loss issue - ie. the games are retransmitting data because the packets are simply lost. The ping tests you've shown possibly aren't enough to quantify the issue though. (Very) occasional packet loss can be considered normal, however if it's happening any more than 'very' ...

Apart from the sync speeds, everything else you've shown so far looks OK. To identify any problems with your equipment, I'd suggest doing an 'isolation test' - ie. run the router on the line by itself to see what it syncs at. If you could please post that along with your SNR figures it'd be apprecia...

If you're going away for an extended period of time, your best bet is to change to the lowest cost plan on the same line speed (ie. if you're on 1.5 mbit, the cheapest 1.5 mbit plan) before you leave, then change back to the original (or closest match) plan when you return.

OK. Thanks guys. Understand the non-authoritative part. I was replying for employment so was somewhat anxious for the email to go through. I will let them know. Does anyone know of a good free DNS test tool anywhere? I used to use www.dnsstuff.com (I think) but it appears to have gone all commercia...

The costs you need to consider are, - Activation charge - First month of access (usually charged in advance I believe) - Cost of appropriate hardware - at a minimum an ADSL router, although you'll probably want to go something VOIP capable if you want to maintain something equivalent to a landline s...

Well, I've been sitting around computers (started using them when I was 6 years old - 22 years ago!) and I've got to admit, I'd never heard of Spyware Doctor. The name alone would make me nervous - it reminds me of those "Your computer is infected with spyware, download this tool from this spyware i...

It is NOT a local caching issue - it is also happening to my tivo (running unix) - they can not access minnie.tuhs.org with their http 1.0 requests - normally a sign of a 'transparent' proxy problem. Can you tell me if exetel is running a transparent proxy, and can you can tell me the address, or a...

From memory after supporting these modems, if the power light goes red on these modems, it indicates a fault with the router itself.

Looking at the usage reports there is no 'saturation at midnight' on any link. I've noticed that the PowerTel link has come pretty damn close to it, assuming the 150mb+ on the MRTG graph is correct. This was mainly Saturday/Sunday and during the week it's less noticeable. I've noticed it has eased ...

OK, 159k is pretty much spot on for a 1.5 megabit connection, so I don't think there's anything to worry about there. Where were you noticing the slow speeds?

I think I might have to answer 'processing speed does affect it'. It might just be my PC setup - it's years overdue for an overhaul - but I noticed when I ran speed test using http://www.speedtest.net, my FireFox CPU usage hit around 90%. I'm running on an AMD XP-2600 with 1.5gb RAM and WinXP. It mi...
