Your assumption is correct, your sync rate is quite good.. Although the upload rate is a bit slow. Have you tried an isolation test? Thanks alot. You mean I have good download speed? I got the following speed from my modem just now: Line Rate - Upstream (Kbps): 565 Line Rate - Downstream (Kbps): 11...

Essentially, it means you are incredibly close to the exchange. Typical attenuation is about 30dB and lower is better, so 5dB is fantastic. The only problem is that you may be too close to the exchange, but I think you'll find your speeds will be very good. Hi It states the following on my modem ho...

Telco

Hi there

Just curious on whether Exetel is still using Powertel and Optus? What about Telstra? Does Exetel now resell from all 3 providers to us?

Btw, is there an FAQ for P2P caching? I am quite curious on it and wanna find out more.

Thanks

The only Netcomm modem that would suit what you have stated is the NB9W. The only reason i recommended the NB9W is that you stated that you'll be (or are) a heavy Bittorrent user. Hi Spanner_Man, I found out from my colleague who uses NBW9 on Exetel that he has to restart his modem at least once a ...

This means you should get good speed.
Thanks for your reply. What does this line mean?

As I don't have a landline right now, I did a search based on the telephone number of the day care centre next door. It came out with the following results: Line of ...

My personal point of view if you have bad quality phone lines then the Billion BiPAC 7404VGO(M) is the only way to go. I live in rural NSW and there are always bad phone lines here. Thank you all for your response. Just wondering about the bad phone line circumstances. I live in an inner west subur...

Hi there I am trying to figure out which modem is most compatible for using Exetel's ADSL2+ service. I am keen to know those with VoIP functions so I can make VoIP calls using the modem. I also need it to use for heavy bit torrent downloads. I think these days the devices come with many functions li...
