I am beginning to suspect that the NB6 is faulty. It worked fine yesterday to a Dlink with shared key and wep, but declined to work on wireless today. Yes, I went through the process of building up the different levels strp by step to find any faults. It also had problems in DNS for internal cleints...

[quote="Spanner_Man"][quote="terryc"]Not an option. Wireless is nice, but really just a toy.

[quote="Spanner_Man"]I think this is an issue with the fact that its an old machine running Win98, which i may add is no longer supported via any sort of updates via m$, with very limited driver support regardless of what you say have already worked in the past. What i might suggest with that laptop...

Which wireless NIC work with Netcomm?

I have recently purchased a Netcomm NMB6plus4W and would like to get the wireless part working, but I am having trouble getting any client to connect. Actually, it is a clinet, an old Toshiba laptop running Win98. It isn't the laptop itself that is the problem as it has successfully connected to a C...

[quote="dogwomble"] Typically though, only a small number of people experience major issues. The majority of people have relatively few, if any, problems. And for the regular problems that do occur, there are so many ways they could present themselves that it sometimes takes a few goes to nail it.[/...

[quote="James"] As far as I can tell (and I have access to a lot of info), there doesn't seem to be any issues with our DSL1 services, except the usual sync/auth issues for a very small % of customers (like every other ISP).[/quote] So, are you saying that this is an ongoing problem for Exetel that ...

As far as I can tell Exetel has some real problems atm with adsl1 services, so do not sweat too much. My troubles started on the 15th with similar dropouts. On the 18th, it died totally. Absolutely nothing to do with any hardware here as everything has been replaced. If your modem has a logging faci...

What is the problem wih PADO not being reurned?

As per subject. Service went dodgy on the 15th (#620925). Finally died on the afternoon of the 18th and I logged a fault via telstra copper. Long story short; not too impressed that a technician was never ordered and that all the support droids loop on "fault is still being investigated". As far as ...

Best adsl modem for bridge mode?

I am looking for people who roll their own IP filtering firewall and would like feedback on what adsl modems/card they are using. I figure it is easier to filter spam in the first place by not accepting it and the old Netcomm NB3300 seems to be fading in the heat, so it is time to update the adsl mo...

It is nice to see Exetel thinking about stuff like this, but I already do enough thanks. If Exetel wants to do nate some of their profits, fine, but slug me as a customer, naah.

Is it just me, or is this a badly designed poll. Do the two YES options mean that you currently pay by some other mrthod but would switch to paying byAmex if offered? Also, will amex users pay more or are the rest of use going to subsidize them? The last time I considered Amex as a merchant, Amex go...
