Re: adsl2 Tasmania?

Any chance of ADSL2+ being rolled out in Tasmania, specifically Hobart's New Town exchange? What about naked ADSL1?

Re: Cannot connect to certain sites

I have been having issues for the last few weeks where a page will not load. Simply reconnecting to the router (turn wifi off and then on again) fixes it. I have tried two different routers and both exhibit similar issues. I wonder if there is something which has been changes recently which may caus...

Re: Cannot connect to certain sites

I am not at home atm, but if you still need traceroutes tonight (god forbid) I will do it for you. I think you had better start prioritising the reparation of this problem though! I am pretty understanding but I reckon that a lot of other customers are less so.

Re: Can't Reconnect After Maintenance This Moring

Tim. It is not the modem. It is your end. We can access some sites, and some don't load. It is also not a DNS problem. See here:

Re: Cannot connect to certain sites

I also cannot reach the above sites, not even using the IP address directly. Please let me know if this is going to be a long time, I would like to know the cause. Thanks, Alex

Re: Can't Reconnect After Maintenance This Moring

Hi, I am in Hobart and have a similar problem to the guy above from Devonport. It is like there are some web sites blocked. I tried using OpenDNS but that didn't help. Tried manual setting of DNS (220.233.0.3 and 4). I will pm my service number now.

Re: Nokia Bluetooth Tethering (OSX)

Ok, I solved it.

For me, I apparently use the vodaphone network and therefore the APN is vfinternet.au

Re: Tasmanian PoP 'Open For Business'

Hi. I am moving house and although I am completely satisfied with exetel the Netspace naked adsl2 deals are pretty fantastic. Can you give any indication of if/when Exetel may be installing adsl2 capacity in Tasmania (I am in Hobart) ? I am so glad you are taking orders again though, as I think I wi...

Re: New Tasmanian Fibre Connection

That's ridiculous! This thing has been in the ground (under the water?) for 3 years! and they still haven't got it sorted out.

At least Exetel is on their back about it, good on you John!

Re: sms from web Python script

Hi I am sure it will run on your nokia if you have python and wxpython installed. If you tweak line 35 I reckon you will get it displaying properly too. wx.Dialog.__init__(self, parent, id, title, size=(490, 200)) the size is the size of the dialog so you can probably change the number 200 to someth...

sms from web Python script

Hi all I just thought I'd share a small script I wrote, to enable me to send sms using Exetel's facilities from my computer desktop. http://home.exetel.com.au/agl/files/exemessage.py This script can be placed in "/home/<username>/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/" and changed to 'executable' (this in Ubuntu...

Hi all. I am wondering if with the new fibre connection across bass straight being opened up we living in Tasmania can expect more ADSL2 availability?

Telstra to wholesale ADSL2

Hi all. Does anyone have news on the recent announcement by Telstra to open up ADSL2 to others? Will Exetel be offering plans for Tasmanians like myself who have telstra ADSL2 at the exchange, but no Exetel currently available?
