I tested the service again about half an hour ago and it didn't work (No fax or email notification received).

Actually there is, of course, one thing I needed sorted out, which I forgot to mention. I couldn't figure out what my modem password was and ended up figuring it out in user facilities by changing my password to something else. The problem is that I couldn't authenticate with either the old password...

Sorry all, I had forgotten that. I can't get ADSL2 so I don't keep up to date on the plans. That's my excuse and I'm sticking with it.

You've changed it again.... I still prefer the logo you had before (like the forums one above).... Doing all that perspective stuff is just a bit of an overkill and takes away from the professional image of Exetel. I agree the original is still better than the current one. At the same time I think ...

Sure I should be able to do that tonight. I'll also plug a different computer in (I have an old one lying around) and see if it has the same issues. I'll report my findings tonight or tomorrow. Edit: For the record btw, there have been no firewall or anti-virus changes made at home for a couple of m...

So it's likely that my hardware has failed for some reason?

That KB article relates to exchange in SBS 2k3. I'm not running either of those at home ;). Hopefully the email issue is related to the browsing issue anyhow.

Yeah my initial impression was unfavouring also. My following thought however is that it's probably not the final version. I didn't like the current website design when it was first implemented either, but as it has developed I have come to find it easier on the eye (and mind).

That you don't have to pay $20-$30 per month for phone line rental.

Re: Naked ADSL From Exetel

Nope. 1)Does your 8 year old have a mobile? 2)Does your 90 year old grandfather have a mobile? 3)Does your mobile ever run out of battery? 4)Does your mobile send a signal of your EXACT location in a matter of seconds while you are suffering a heart attack?? I could go on with a few more. I see 8 y...

I changed the MTU settings to 1400 last night (from 1492) which had no effect on the problems. Previous to this, if I have ever changed the MTU settings (or any other settings for that matter) it was a long long time ago. I presume I will find instructions on how do a traceroute somewhere on these f...

Can I ask why ADSL2 is cheaper than ADSL? I have only compared two plans - the $75 8192 offering (12Gb peak) and the $75 ADSL2 offering (24Gb peak). It's puzzling me and the only way to find out the real reason is to ask. I expect it relates to the costs of providing each service, but isn't ADSL2 co...
