Re: adsl2 selective website connection issues

I've been having these "random" problems since Saturday night, too. Random in time, and random with the sites that have problems. Eg. Pinging help.ubuntu.com [91.189.90.19] with 32 bytes of data: Reply from 91.189.90.19: bytes=32 time=378ms TTL=39 Request timed out. Reply from 91.189.90.19: bytes=32...

Re: Content Filtering Trial

Well for the first time ever "in five years" I cannot log in to play Poker Stars, sorry forgot to say "unable to make connection" I've never been there before, but if you mean http://www.pokerstars.com (I just guessed at the name), I could get there no problem. Question for the admins... does using...

Re: Changing from PTL A to PAYUDSL2 questions

I have an out-of-contract PTL A account and am thinking of moving to PAYUDSL2. I'm currently with Telstra for the phone service, with a second number as a "multiple number" on that one line (used as incoming fax number). 1) Possible to change to PAYUDSL2? 2) How to apply?

Re: Transfer Your Current PSTN Home Number To Exetel VoIP

Exetel will be able to put in place the ability for the telephone number ‘owner’ to move that number for their current PSTN line to an Exetel VoIP service via a function in the Exetel User Facilities - hopefully by the end of February 2009.

Re: Fring/NimBuzz Replacement

So FP1 and 2 would cover the more recent Nokias, particularly most of the 6xxx and N78, N96 with their missing native VoIP clients. Based on feedback here it sounds like the Samsung might be a good one to work on next. My Samsung i560 says: "This product is based on S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1 s...
