Tech Breakdown

The router has died and all I could find to replace it quickly with was an ADSL modem/router, so the main system works but nothing else sees the net (the unit is expecting to see the net through the modem not through the LAN). So I’ll probably have to chase down something else. The unit wont go to waste as the new place hasn’t got access to the Optus network so goodbye to my grandfathered 20/40 plan, I’ll miss it.  Still there are some good plans out there for high volume users. Time to start searching through Whirlpool again.

    I use http://www.adsl2exchanges.com.au/viewexchange.php?Exchange=GBRH when looking for ADSL2, just plug in your phone number.

    Lets you know the distance to the nearest exchange so you have an idea of speeds and it also provides details of ISPs that can provide service from that exchange.

    No good if you are planning to go cable.

    Naut, I’m a little stuck until I move and have a number (planning to ask the agent to ask the seller what they’ve got).

    YDog I’m positive my power is affected by the inverse square law, well almost positive.
