Re: A tip for Regular Forum Viewers :) (Auto login)

There is probably an even easier way though: Have us moderators only approve accounts with either a valid exemail.com.au email address, or an originating Exetel IP address. I don't use Exemail. Never have, never will... I doubt I'm alone given how common GMail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc are these days. I...

Re: ADSL2+ on Telstra Exchanges

I guess this means the adsl1 port I occupy can't be just upgraded to an adsl2 port right? Not if it's a port on an older DSLAM/card. Sadly it wasn't a software upgrade for the older hardware (some newer stuff was though if I remember correctly). On a sort of related note - ours seems to have happen...

Re: ADSL2+ on Telstra Exchanges

I was certainly surprised to see we didn't have to wait until the end of the month... Nice.

Now I'm just waiting for it to happen. Double (or more) outbound speed is going to be great!

I don't think they even know what it's meant to be, let alone why anyone wants it. Their trial includes a voice line!

Re: ADSL2+ on Telstra Exchanges

My exchange says it's enabled for ADSL2+ by Telstra only however I am connected via a RIM/CMUX which is approx. 400m away. The RIM/CMUX is 4km from the actual exchange. Is this worth me pursuing an ADSL2 connection when they are up and running? Possibly. Depends what they have you connected to (and...

My questions:
Counted both ways, or just down?
Excess usage price?
Normal inclusions (fixed address, etc)?

And lastly, when can we order? :mrgreen:

Re: Report Broken Links/Failed Web Functions Here

Business ADSL1 plans (http://exetel.com.au/business_plan_pricing_new.php) says: # /29 IP Range (6 usable IP addresses) But further down in the "For more information on plans please click here" stuff, it says: # All plans include 1 static IP. It is of course technically possible that both statements ...

If that happens, I'm so there!

I mean after I buy a new modem of course - my old Speedtouch Home (original series - the ones you can software mod to be a router) isn't going to like ADSL2 :mrgreen:

Re: ADSL2+ on telstra Exchange

I'm after TW ADSL2 for 2 reasons - First, it's all we can get. And 2nd, I want faster outbound speed.

Quite happy with 8mbps (sync around 6mbps), but the choked off 384k out sucks.

Re: Negotiated HSPA DNS settings don't work

I get the same odd DNS servers when I run a community build of Android on my Touch Pro (normally Windows Mobile, which doesn't get the weird addresses). I had assumed it was simply a bug in the builds I was running - but this, and other reports like it, suggest it's a problem with the network itself...

Exetel isn't the only ISP that charges for plan changes, Yep. And some charge rather "criminal" rates for it too. According to Whirlpool's data, TPG charge $59 to switch to a lower plan (same speed)! Someone else (Dodo I think it was) charge $44 for the same. Rabbit Net charge $30 for any plan chan...

We will add a 'tick the box' remember my log in before the end of the week. Which week would that be? It's still not got an option for remembering the account details - and it's bloody annoying. How about instead/also having an option to link a forum account to an Exetel account? I use lots of diff...

Re: How to not run "Mobile Partner" on Mac OSX?

Not sure about Mac OSX, but in Linux you could do something like:
cat "AT^U2DIAG=256" > /dev/ttyUSB0

Mac OSX likely calls the device something different, but the same principal would apply.
