Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

The Telstra document takes a bit of reading but good details, I am working my way through. I should have mentioned that I was working with the KDE system activity window, even with that I could not work out what was going on and not having my usual appetite for following "interesting leads" I gave u...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

At the moment I have just let the system record. Decided that I will try and get a C10100E central splitter or C10100P, the latter small size would fit nicely on a 50x100 beam under the house. Bit of a setback with the cable when I looked for the hole drilled in the floor, there is now a double floo...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Thanks for tips I will follow up on that. I was late in for lunch break, when I checked the speedtest was still low so I powered off and up on the modem, just after 13:00. Could have kicked myself that I did not do an adsl-info copy at that time, to see if it had recovered, but only after modem had ...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

I had a mishap yesterday with my recording, the program crashed while doing a long and very satisfying steady run. I restarted the program and had it running over night again with nice steady run barring the odd dip on the seaeagle file. I decided this morning to do a adsl-info run, fully expecting ...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

The test download of files have now stabilised again I think. Why I am not sure. This morning however I decided to pull out the phone and see what would happen. Soon the answer showed that speed increased to the level I have seen before. I made a few minor downloads of other files which also came at...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Perhaps there is a bit of a misunderstanding here. :D The Exetel Testspeed URL: http://www.exetel.com.au/speed/dsl/adsl_hspa_service_speeds.php The seaeagle file: http://www.exetel.com.au/xxxx/yyyy/zzzz So dig will be the same for both files: dig www.exetel.com.au Not sure what happened to my pictur...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

I have sruggled with dig I am not real familiar with it, understand it would be able to return IP adresses on domain names. there must be something I have missed but whatever combination I have tried on for example the Exetel Speedtest location, I fail to get the IP. The result looks almost right, b...

A copy is sitting in my 200 MB Exetel User Area on an exetel server. I don't know where this is an have been thinking of asking how "far away" from the...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

I will try to squeeze the pictures, should be easier for me now a know more about gnuplot. For starters I went back and edited my previous post as I ended up combining the two adsl-info retrievals I recorded last midnight. It is clearer to see on one picture that something has changed. The RF interf...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Your suggestions noted, will return to this later. Here I will mention the result of the adsl-info retrieval before and after restoring to normal, ie plugging in the phone again. I may have to repeat the exercise a few times just to be sure. I will show two separate graphs, though I now have a gnupl...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

While I went out working this morning I left the phone unplugged, and the result can be clearly seen in attached picture. I was surprised to see that it is not as steady as I had expected with the phone unplugged. I will keep an eye on this, for examplety it during early mornings well before 08:00. ...
