Re: Speed issue...again

Yet again around the same time my entire net seems to almost die, please if you're going to respond with 'technical' requests make sure you give me an explanation on how to do it I'm not some computer wiz but I do know enough to realise this is pathetic and shouldn't be happening. Could the issue be...

Re: ADSL 1 Abnormally low speed

Which is confusing because your speed test is coming up with 2.24 etc MBPS but speedtest.net is giving me back 4.78 MBPS

**EDIT** Downloading a patch for one of my games at 625 KB/sec. Thank you exetel :)

Re: ADSL 1 Abnormally low speed

I let my router turned off for a few minutes and it has seemed to have worked, I'm now getting speeds of 270+ KB/sec from your servers, which i'm pretty unimpressed with considering its merely a 100 KB/sec upgrade going from the 1500 down to the 8100 down :/

ADSL 1 Abnormally low speed

I have just recently upgraded to the ADSL1 8192/384. I have received an email confirming that the plan has changed over so I decided to run a speed test and was amazed to see that I'm downloading at 40 KB/sec from your servers. I'm not sure if this is just because the plan is in the process of chang...

(I'm aware that it is american, but up until 2 weeks ago I was pinging 160-180 to it constantly, but since I struggle to even get below 280 or so)

This is pathetic

This is actually driving me up the god damn wall. I was maintaining fine ping in my games that I play up until about 2 weeks ago, so excetel has changed something with my plan and now I can barely maintain a decent latency, can someone with a clue actually tell me what is going on?

Re: Latency in games gone wierd

From what I could see with this thread (I also was experiencing random disconnects here and there so will hope that doing the fix that was posted helped). But there was no posted fix for the latency side of things.

Latency in games gone wierd

The latency increase is of about 200, but my latency in games such as CoD has gone up a good 70 or so to... I do not know m...

Re: My net sucks...

Apart from waiting for Telstra to change things, these workarounds occur to me - 1. Check the line status recorded in the modem, as perhaps an 8k ADSL1 service will gain something noticeable. 2. At the risk of being unpopular at home use the QoS feature of your modem to give you and your game some ...

Re: Can't get ADSL2+ but I can?

further investigating has reveled that my exchange has no free ports for ADSL2+, any idea how long you generally have to wait for more ports or how to request more??
