Re: Virgin Prepaid Mobile Broadband starter kit and Exetel SIM

Have entered APN, username, password in the Virgin modem utility, I've never entered a username or password, only changed the APN. I also didn't use the CD that came with my Optus E169. My Virgin E1762 has only been used in my Netgear 3G router or in my Ubuntu (linux) box. But I imagine that the pr...

Re: No Busy tone, slow speeds, adsl dropout

exetel have now closed my ticket, saying that there is nothing that can be done, because apparently when they went to telstra, they told exetel that the infrastructure in cronulla is not up to date... i struggled to truely understand what he meant through his indian accent. No matter what i said, i...

Re: HSPA Connects but no internet

Is anyone else experencing problems like this? Or have they in the past? Just wondering if there is a simple fix for something like this or do we have to wait until the problem is indentified. With my E169 modem, I found that it was better to set the DNS servers manually rather then allow the modem...

Re: Modem locked to Optus

Just wondering if I had a modem from Optus which was locked to their network, would it work with Exetel , given that the Exetel wireless service is provided through the Optus network ? Or would the modem need to be unlocked? I have an Optus locked E169 modem, which I use on an Exetel HSPA service. ...

Re: Speed Capped to below ADSL1 speeds.. on Naked adsl2

Hi, Since August 1st i am only Syncing below adsl1 speed. Haven't had this problem before and iv been with exetel naked adsl2 for over 6 months now, and never faced with such low sync. When I had low sync speed on my naked service, I removed my modem and plugged a corded telephone hand set into my ...

Re: Trixbox Exetel Voip Sip Trunk Incoming calls issue

I've changed one of my trunks (I've got 2) to have context=from-Exetel (where Exetel is the name of that trunk), and Maximum Channels: back to blank. It hasn't affected my ability to receive calls on this trunk (yet). I'll post if I loose the capability some time in the future due to this change. u...

Re: Relationship between Sync speed and D/L speed

It appears the sync speed has improved at the moment? Thanks for that Jason. That's the best sync speed I've had for a while. So far this month I've had Telstra out twice to fix my other (Telstra) phone line. The first tech said that the cable around the next street was damaged and that it had to b...

Relationship between Sync speed and D/L speed

I currently have a fault lodged with Exetel (1384312) for slow/erratic sync speed and requesting a line check. I can see the relationship between sync and d/l speed if one complains about slow d/l speed. What information can be gleamed from several d/l speed tests if one is complaining about sync sp...

Re: Tower problems ?

Need2no, I haven't got an E169 at hand (the one I play with travels with family) but the E220 meter I referenced above compiles readily if you have libncurses5-dev installed. It simply opens and then reads a slab of bytes from the USB port and parses them, It writes the stats and bars to a terminal...

Re: Tower problems ?

Thanks Dazzled. I did look , some time ago, at using UMTSmon , because it showed signal strength, network stats, things that are sadly lacking in Network manager. However, the support for it seem 'low', and so I stuck with Network manager. Although I prefer NM to handle my connections, I installed ...

Re: SORBS netblock active against 220.233.175.0/24

Also, no-one from Exetel has answered my query yet about who we can send a zone file to for the purposes of customising our reverse DNS? There's a $20.00 a year charge for rDNS. You apply from your members facility WEB/Email hosting, then Order Domain Name Hosting and select Reverse Domain Name Hos...
