Re: Midnight crisis

I'd just like to know what the cause is. Is the congestion specific to one Exchange only? - if so, will that exchange be upgraded by Telstra, if the exchange is constantly under heavy load? - and is it slow for EVERYONE on the (for example) Optus ADSL2 hardware in that exchange OR just the Exetel cu...

Re: Please Use This Thread To Advise Exetel Of Typos/Errors

Shaping status seems wrong after changing Peak Period to 2am/2pm. I've had Shaping enabled since 2008-05-07, but I'm not sure if it stayed Shaped after I selected 2am/2pm OffPeak period. I got blocked on my Peak period and it says I will be charged for excess at $3 (on Member Summary page https://ww...

Re: Midnight crisis

yeah it is like a YoYo. Usually you can't stream anything, but sometimes you can stream with a small wait (rarely though).

Re: ADSL2+ with 3G Backup

Set a calendar alert to use it once a month for a few minutes.
Apart from that, should be easy. No need to setup auto-detect and failover, that would just waste CPU on something which may never be needed and you can easily plug it in and it will work if the software is already installed.

Make sure your XP DNS settings is Exetel and so is your modem. I use PPPoA and MTU 1500 in my modem. LLC Headers enabled (optional but if its...

Re: Midnight crisis

and slow again tonight. When I do a speedtest it starts off fast around 400KB/sec for a few seconds but then tapers down to about 50KB/sec or less, max speed is 1000KB/sec during the day. Sync 10 000 / 8000. It has always been slow at midnight for me, except maybe a few days where I didn't notice th...

Things do seem faster now. I can almost stream iView and speedtests give faster results for OffPeak on average than a few weeks ago.
