Re: Exetel User Help Forum - Only For Exetel Users

Your decision, of course, but if you're interested in user opinions I agree with Munka and Dazzled - this would be a bad move, because: this forum gives potential new clients a much better impression of the Exetel experience than other sources would (eg. Whingepool). sharing information freely is ge...

Re: Credit for Per Min plans.

I would like to get an exact answer to my question though: "Do you need to have 'positive credit' on a credit per min plan to make calls?" In general this is simply the difference between a pre-paid and a post-paid plan. On any post -paid plan, you may pay a fixed charge or line rental in advance, ...

Re: New Residential Members Facilities

I like it. Colours are always going to be a matter of taste but I find the greys and subtle backgrounds a lot more stylish. The menus seem a lot more logical now too, and as pure CSS they don't require users to enable javascript - much better. A few suggestions: Add a 'site map' page of links to all...

Re: exetel moip

All reports indicate the same - ExeMoip doesn't work on the 6120 / 6121. Maybe some future version will.

There are some commercial programs that do work on it, eg. Uniphone.

Re: Linux and E169 Modem [switching]?

3)I have always been able to connect via Windows. 4) I have always been able to connect using Linux after two attempts. But now: 5) I can connect to Exetel using any of my 3 machines when booted to Windows XP 6) None of my machines now connect via Linux. Sounds like your linux connection has always...

Re: One site will not work

Looks like they're in the process of changing hosts, and their changes have stuffed up their dns. You'll probably find the site going up and down until they fix it.

Re: Intermittent inbound calls

( believe your modem is a rebadged 7402VGP not 7404 as mentioned above) I think there are two models of Open824RLW out there - the 3-port is a 7402, the 4 port a 7404. Mine (4-port) has been running well for about 18 months now (hope I'm not jinxing myself!) but I remember some fiddling was require...

Re: Possible HSPA issue.

That does seem logical, but my understanding of Windows networking is far too limited to tell for sure if it's right, or if there are other factors that may come into play (DNS caching in the browser perhaps?). But where there's a well-known problem and an equally well-known workaround that you have...

Re: Possible HSPA issue.

The PC gets its IP config from the network. I don't believe it is a PC or OS issue. It's a known intermittent problem (at least using linux systems, but I doubt it's specific to any particular OS) that the PC fails to get DNS information from the network. For a reliable connection you should specif...

Re: Possible HSPA issue.

With the phone used as a modem, it'll be the connection software on the computer that needs a manual resolver (DNS server) setting. Look in the advanced options for whatever you're using to make the connection.

Re: XLite registers VOIP but won't dial Call failed: timeout

My usage is a bit different to yours, but probably similar enough to be relevant. I have ADSL at home with an Open 824 (Billion rebrand) router / ATA and both HSPA and mobile accounts that can register to the same VoIP account. I normally leave the home ATA registering and when I'm out, connect from...

Re: XLite registers VOIP but won't dial Call failed: timeout

Perhaps I've just been lucky but I find that I can have two devices both registering as required and it works ok for outgoing calls. Incoming calls are certainly a problem - they might go to either device (or possibly even neither) but outgoing it seems to work. I did write a little shell script to ...

Re: Negotiated HSPA DNS settings don't work

I've seen the negotiated resolver addresses come out blank intermittently and the default Ubuntu Exetel setup in NM doesn't (or at least didn't at the time) include the resolver addresses. Using the e169 this simply results in a blank resolv.conf - it looks like a Sierra thing to return these spurio...
