I guess I should mention that I have tried the obvious stuff.. direct
connection to the modem to bypass the switch, swapping out cables, etc.,

I didn't see any answer there. I can connect the tv direct to the modem,
bypassing the switch, and the problem is still present. that's why I
think it's a modem issue.

just turned the tv on now and it's saying 'no internet connection'
(wired) but it is connected. so I switched to wifi but I'm only getting
10mbps on wifi :( I think I'll change to myrepublic. hopefully it's
better than TPG. I never had any probs when I was on Telstra cable. this
issue has only arisen since I got NBN

That’s because of the steaming turd of a modem that TPG supplys.

Paul Edwards had exactly the same problem, that steaming
turd of a modem that TPG supply couldn’t come even close
to delivering the 100/40 service he was paying for. So he
originally switched to a 12/1 service instead.

He has just recently switched to myrepublic and the modem
they supply for $1 does deliver the full 100/40 his is paying
even less than he was paying for the TPG 12/1 service.
I think I'll change to myrepublic. hopefully it's better than TPG.
The modem certainly is.

BUT some are seeing the thruput sag down to 5MB in the peak time in the
evening.
I never had any probs when I was on Telstra cable. this issue has only

Yeah, it’s the steaming turd of a modem that TPG supplys.

Nope, its vastly better than TPG on wifi except
for some during peak times. Paul doesn’t see
any slowdown at all so its vastly better for him.

TPG also sees congestion in peak times and has a
'support' operation that doesn’t have a fucking clue.

Expect weeks of delay getting your phone number
ported from TPG, they are notorious for that.

No its not, the NBN doesn’t do anything different in that regard.

MR does tho on the standard plan, they use CGNAT, hardly anyone
else does. Unlikely to be relevant to the problem you are seeing tho.

I think I'll change to myrepublic. hopefully it's better than TPG.
The modem certainly is.
BUT some are seeing the thruput sag down to 5MB in the peak time
in the evening.
so it's just half as good as TPG on wifi
Nope, its vastly better than TPG on wifi except
for some during peak times. Paul doesn’t see
any slowdown at all so its vastly better for him.
TPG also sees congestion in peak times and has a
'support' operation that doesn’t have a fucking clue.
Expect weeks of delay getting your phone number
ported from TPG, they are notorious for that.
yeah, MR said 6 weeks

You don’t get 5mbps with MR

I never ever said that everyone who uses MR gets that, fuckwit.

And when you can't even manage to comprehend something
as simple as that, that’s the completely superfluous proof of

Post by felix

Yes it will if you end up with better than a 25/5 result at the hardware
level.
Post by felix
they said I had to tell TPG to put my phone number into CDNO mode
(whatever that means) or else I would lose it.
Its much more complicated than that. The simplest approach
is to continue to pay TPG for the phone service until the number
has been successfully ported to MR. You'll find that hardly anyone
actually knows what CDNO means, even Telstra Wholesale.

It’s a mode set using Telstra's LOLO system but I spent most of the
day trying to find someone in Telstra who even recognised the terms,
even at local supervisor level. One local supervisor did run the line that
they had new people and that that was the problem, and its certainly
true that almost all of that level of Telstra has been offshored now.

But even that local supervisor couldn’t work out which dept in Telstra
can use LOLO and do a CDNO. She connected me to NBN Billing in
Telstra and although they did recognise the terms, couldn’t actually
use LOLO and so couldn’t do a CDNO. He initially decided that the
best approach was to give me a whole new phone line on the spare
copper pair to my house, at no cost to me and was setting up a
personal visit by an NBN tech to do that until I pointed out how
inappropriate that was. And I'm not convinced that it would have
happened either because once an area goes RFS, Ready For Service,
with FTTN, you cant have any new POTS or adsl services provisioned.

He then decided that a number reservation in the physical exchange
which is done by a person in the exchange would be just as good,
and that got done on Thursday. It remains to be seen if MR can now
to a port request that will succeed.

And the other problem with Telstra is that if it doesn’t, there is no
way to get in contact with that person in Telstra again. I find it hard
to believe that if I ask for John in NBN Billing I will be able to get him
again. He did send me an SMS when the number reservation had been
done, but you can't even reply to that SMS, it’s a general SMS number
that Telstra uses for immense numbers of outgoing SMSs.

I must have been thru at least 10 different depts in Telstra that
day with just NBN billing even recognising the terms CDNO
and LOLO and even supervisors don’t appear to be able to put
those terms into their system and see what dept can do them.

Corse they do and he just fobbed you off on that.

That’s one real downside with MR, there still isnt any status page
where you can change that stuff yourself. They have only just got
billing working this year, so that’s not very surprising.

so you think they did record my CC details? it's a worry because anyone
who listens to the recording has all the info they need for identity
theft (name, address, DOB, etc.,) and especially since this stuff goes
overseas these days and who knows where it ends up and could be hacked
into. even without the CC info it's still a risk of ID theft with all
the info you give them. btw, the Foxtel call centre is in Africa and
they are by far the worst for all the reasons I've mentioned here and
above about call centres

yes, I see that there is no login/account page. the website it slow
loading too. i hope that's just a case of it being overload like belong
experienced when they first started up, and not indicative of the speed
of their service :)

Bet you end up having to do that, If you did not leave telstra running
until you had MR up and running you will end up with a new number like me

the person I spoke to was rather ordinary as sales ppl go, and I
strongly suspect they didn't pause the recording when I gave my CC
details, because I had to mention that they should, but there was no
pause like they stopped the recording, unless of course it was BS
that they were recording at all.
Corse they do and he just fobbed you off on that.
so you think they did record my CC details? it's a worry because anyone
who listens to the recording has all the info they need for identity
theft (name, address, DOB, etc.,) and especially since this stuff goes
overseas these days and who knows where it ends up and could be hacked
into. even without the CC info it's still a risk of ID theft with all
the info you give them. btw, the Foxtel call centre is in Africa and
they are by far the worst for all the reasons I've mentioned here and
above about call centres

That’s one real downside with MR, there still isnt any status page
where you can change that stuff yourself. They have only just got
billing working this year, so that’s not very surprising.
yes, I see that there is no login/account page. the website it slow
loading too. i hope that's just a case of it being overload like belong
experienced when they first started up, and not indicative of the speed
of their service :)

I didn't see any answer there. I can connect the tv direct
to the modem, bypassing the switch, and the problem is
still present. that's why I think it's a modem issue.
just turned the tv on now and it's saying 'no internet
connection' (wired) but it is connected. so I switched to
wifi but I'm only getting 10mbps on wifi :(
That’s because of the steaming turd of a modem that TPG supplys.
Paul Edwards had exactly the same problem, that steaming
turd of a modem that TPG supply couldn’t come even close
to delivering the 100/40 service he was paying for. So he
originally switched to a 12/1 service instead.
He has just recently switched to myrepublic and the modem
they supply for $1 does deliver the full 100/40 his is paying
even less than he was paying for the TPG 12/1 service.

The modem certainly is.
BUT some are seeing the thruput sag down to 5MB in the peak

Nope, its vastly better than TPG on wifi except
for some during peak times. Paul doesn’t see
any slowdown at all so its vastly better for him.
TPG also sees congestion in peak times and has a

Post by felix
they said I had to tell TPG to put my phone number into CDNO mode
(whatever that means) or else I would lose it.
Its much more complicated than that. The simplest approach
is to continue to pay TPG for the phone service until the number
has been successfully ported to MR. You'll find that hardly anyone
actually knows what CDNO means, even Telstra Wholesale.
It’s a mode set using Telstra's LOLO system but I spent most of the
day trying to find someone in Telstra who even recognised the terms,
even at local supervisor level. One local supervisor did run the line that
they had new people and that that was the problem, and its certainly
true that almost all of that level of Telstra has been offshored now.
I hate that we have to deal with these foreign call centers with their
lack of knowledge and inability to solve issues. and you cant understand
what they saying half the time because of the accents. and when you ask
them to repeat themselves they think you're stupid and don't understand
what they're telling you, when it's really just the accent
Post by Rod Speed
But even that local supervisor couldn’t work out which dept in Telstra
can use LOLO and do a CDNO. She connected me to NBN Billing in
Telstra and although they did recognise the terms, couldn’t actually
use LOLO and so couldn’t do a CDNO. He initially decided that the
best approach was to give me a whole new phone line on the spare
copper pair to my house, at no cost to me and was setting up a
personal visit by an NBN tech to do that until I pointed out how
inappropriate that was. And I'm not convinced that it would have
happened either because once an area goes RFS, Ready For Service,
with FTTN, you cant have any new POTS or adsl services provisioned.
yes. however telstra has told me that the copper line still works but
only for 000
Post by Rod Speed
He then decided that a number reservation in the physical exchange
which is done by a person in the exchange would be just as good,
and that got done on Thursday. It remains to be seen if MR can now
to a port request that will succeed.
And the other problem with Telstra is that if it doesn’t, there is no
way to get in contact with that person in Telstra again. I find it hard
to believe that if I ask for John in NBN Billing I will be able to get him
again. He did send me an SMS when the number reservation had been
done, but you can't even reply to that SMS, it’s a general SMS number
that Telstra uses for immense numbers of outgoing SMSs.
I must have been thru at least 10 different depts in Telstra that
day with just NBN billing even recognising the terms CDNO
and LOLO and even supervisors don’t appear to be able to put
those terms into their system and see what dept can do them.

Depends on what you mean by a night owl. The peak time
doesn’t last much past 11pm and if you get your movies using
torrents, there is no reason why you can't download them
during the non peak times. That’s what I do for the neighbours.
Post by felix

The problem may even go away. There have been various
claims that Optus Wholesale is making major changes in
April and that may even fix the problem. MR uses them
with some POIs and has their own presence in the more
important POIs. I forget where you are now but they are
likely to have their own presence in capital city POIs.

I hate that we have to deal with these foreign call centers with their

I've been told today that LOLO is a system Telstra Wholesale
uses and that’s why no one in Telstra retail could use it for me.

The problem with that line is that Dodo resells Telstra and
I had a senior supervisor call Telstra Wholesale and got told
that they couldn’t use LOLO to do a CDNO for my number and
that there is no way to actually make my number active again.

I don’t believe that. The whole point of putting a number into
quarantine for 6 months is so you can get it back again for a
new phone service, most often when you have moved physically.

They were all better than I have had with some of the local

That’s only true of a line that no longer has anyone paying line rent on it.

Its not true of a line physically cutover to fttn, there is no longer any
copper pair going back to the exchange anymore, it now only goes
to the node and the cutover is done in the pillar where the pair is
jumpered to the node instead of the cable going back to the exchange.

That’s why the pillars often double in height when fttn goes in,
the is double the number of termination blocks in it after the
node has been installed, with the new set terminating the massive
great multicore cables to the node. A node can have 384 services
so there needs to be that many pairs in the cable between the
node and the pillar.

Main downside with that approach is that MR can only give
you numbers in the state capitals and since I am in a NSW
country town, its no longer a local call for others in my town.

Not a massive problem now with so many having a phone
service with unlimited calls to landlines and mobiles, but
there are still some dinosaurs around who don’t have that
sort of phone service.

Sure, but any service that requires a credit card
number or bank account number and bills you
automatically every month has the same risk involved.

The main alternative is to manually pay it every month,
but plenty don’t allow that anymore, at least with new
accounts and they get your card or account number
when you pay anyway unless you use PayPal to pay.

Where abouts, the RSA presumably ?

I've just seen today a claim that they started

Not clear to me if that individual is in any
position to know those numbers tho.

The MD is pretty open about figures like that and
does call individual customers and has called me
twice now so its quite possible they are official figures.

they supply for $1 does deliver the full 100/40 his is paying

I think I'll change to myrepublic. hopefully it's better than TPG.
The modem certainly is.
BUT some are seeing the thruput sag down to 5MB in the peak
time in the evening.
so it's just half as good as TPG on wifi
Nope, its vastly better than TPG on wifi except
for some during peak times. Paul doesn’t see
any slowdown at all so its vastly better for him.
TPG also sees congestion in peak times and has a
'support' operation that doesn’t have a fucking clue.
Expect weeks of delay getting your phone number
ported from TPG, they are notorious for that.
yeah, MR said 6 weeks

Yes it will if you end up with better than a 25/5 result at the hardware

they said I had to tell TPG to put my phone number into CDNO mode
(whatever that means) or else I would lose it.
Its much more complicated than that. The simplest approach
is to continue to pay TPG for the phone service until the number
has been successfully ported to MR. You'll find that hardly anyone
actually knows what CDNO means, even Telstra Wholesale.
It’s a mode set using Telstra's LOLO system but I spent most of the
day trying to find someone in Telstra who even recognised the terms,
even at local supervisor level. One local supervisor did run the line that
they had new people and that that was the problem, and its certainly
true that almost all of that level of Telstra has been offshored now.
But even that local supervisor couldn’t work out which dept in Telstra
can use LOLO and do a CDNO. She connected me to NBN Billing in
Telstra and although they did recognise the terms, couldn’t actually
use LOLO and so couldn’t do a CDNO. He initially decided that the
best approach was to give me a whole new phone line on the spare
copper pair to my house, at no cost to me and was setting up a
personal visit by an NBN tech to do that until I pointed out how
inappropriate that was. And I'm not convinced that it would have
happened either because once an area goes RFS, Ready For Service,
with FTTN, you cant have any new POTS or adsl services provisioned.
He then decided that a number reservation in the physical exchange
which is done by a person in the exchange would be just as good,
and that got done on Thursday. It remains to be seen if MR can now
to a port request that will succeed.
And the other problem with Telstra is that if it doesn’t, there is no
way to get in contact with that person in Telstra again. I find it hard
to believe that if I ask for John in NBN Billing I will be able to get him
again. He did send me an SMS when the number reservation had been
done, but you can't even reply to that SMS, it’s a general SMS number
that Telstra uses for immense numbers of outgoing SMSs.
I must have been thru at least 10 different depts in Telstra that
day with just NBN billing even recognising the terms CDNO
and LOLO and even supervisors don’t appear to be able to put
those terms into their system and see what dept can do them.

the person I spoke to was rather ordinary as sales ppl go, and I
strongly suspect they didn't pause the recording when I gave my CC
details, because I had to mention that they should, but there was no
pause like they stopped the recording, unless of course it was BS that
they were recording at all.
Corse they do and he just fobbed you off on that.
That’s one real downside with MR, there still isnt any status page
where you can change that stuff yourself. They have only just got
billing working this year, so that’s not very surprising.
What a palarver! When I changed from Telstra POTS to TPG NBN, I just gave
them my POTS number, and there it was as soon as the connection was
switched to the NBN.
Didn’t happen when Paul Edwards did exactly the same thing,
took weeks and weeks till the number showed up in the TPG NBN
service and has now taken weeks to get it back from TPG to MR too.

TPG is absolutely notorious for that in both directions.

they supply for $1 does deliver the full 100/40 his is paying
even less than he was paying for the TPG 12/1 service.
Post by felix
I think I'll change to myrepublic. hopefully it's better
than TPG.
The modem certainly is.
BUT some are seeing the thruput sag down to 5MB in the peak
time in the evening.
so it's just half as good as TPG on wifi
Nope, its vastly better than TPG on wifi except
for some during peak times. Paul doesn’t see
any slowdown at all so its vastly better for him.
TPG also sees congestion in peak times and has a
'support' operation that doesn’t have a fucking clue.
Expect weeks of delay getting your phone number
ported from TPG, they are notorious for that.
yeah, MR said 6 weeks

Post by felix
and only a quarter as good on ethernet
God knows where you are getting that shit from.
5mbps vs 20mbps with TPG
You don’t get 5mbps with MR
you said so in another post
I never ever said that everyone who uses MR gets that, fuckwit.
but the fact that it has means that it could
Just as true of TPG because that is due to congestion.
And with TPG its absolutely certain that the modem they
supply is a steaming turd that can't do anything like the
100/40 you are getting with MR if you are FTTP and not
FTTN.

And when you can't even manage to comprehend something
as simple as that, that’s the completely superfluous proof of
why its completely pointless listing what you should try with
the other problem.
well I have high hopes for MR, so fingers crossed.
I don’t have any regrets and would still use them
if I knew at the time all the detail I now know.
I don’t even care about a slow down in
peak times since I've gone to bed by then.
Post by felix
I'll post what my connection speed is when it's up and running. the
wifi speed will improve too I guess?
Yes it will if you end up with better than a 25/5 result at the hardware
level.
Post by felix
they said I had to tell TPG to put my phone number into CDNO mode
(whatever that means) or else I would lose it.
Its much more complicated than that. The simplest approach
is to continue to pay TPG for the phone service until the number
has been successfully ported to MR. You'll find that hardly anyone
actually knows what CDNO means, even Telstra Wholesale.
It’s a mode set using Telstra's LOLO system but I spent most of the
day trying to find someone in Telstra who even recognised the terms,
even at local supervisor level. One local supervisor did run the line that
they had new people and that that was the problem, and its certainly
true that almost all of that level of Telstra has been offshored now.
But even that local supervisor couldn’t work out which dept in Telstra
can use LOLO and do a CDNO. She connected me to NBN Billing in
Telstra and although they did recognise the terms, couldn’t actually
use LOLO and so couldn’t do a CDNO. He initially decided that the
best approach was to give me a whole new phone line on the spare
copper pair to my house, at no cost to me and was setting up a
personal visit by an NBN tech to do that until I pointed out how
inappropriate that was. And I'm not convinced that it would have
happened either because once an area goes RFS, Ready For Service,
with FTTN, you cant have any new POTS or adsl services provisioned.
He then decided that a number reservation in the physical exchange
which is done by a person in the exchange would be just as good,
and that got done on Thursday. It remains to be seen if MR can now
to a port request that will succeed.
And the other problem with Telstra is that if it doesn’t, there is no
way to get in contact with that person in Telstra again. I find it hard
to believe that if I ask for John in NBN Billing I will be able to get him
again. He did send me an SMS when the number reservation had been
done, but you can't even reply to that SMS, it’s a general SMS number
that Telstra uses for immense numbers of outgoing SMSs.
I must have been thru at least 10 different depts in Telstra that
day with just NBN billing even recognising the terms CDNO
and LOLO and even supervisors don’t appear to be able to put
those terms into their system and see what dept can do them.

the person I spoke to was rather ordinary as sales ppl go, and I
strongly suspect they didn't pause the recording when I gave my CC
details, because I had to mention that they should, but there was no
pause like they stopped the recording, unless of course it was BS that
they were recording at all.
Corse they do and he just fobbed you off on that.
That’s one real downside with MR, there still isnt any status page
where you can change that stuff yourself. They have only just got
billing working this year, so that’s not very surprising.
What a palarver! When I changed from Telstra POTS to TPG NBN, I
just gave them my POTS number, and there it was as soon as the
connection was switched to the NBN.
same here. but maybe it's due to changing from the copper network?
Nope, Paul has just got it porting a FTTP service from TPG to MR.
Post by felix
all phone numbers on NBN are VOIP so we are not dealing with telstra
anymore
You are if you are porting from a Telstra NBN service.
Post by felix
Post by Rod Speed
Didn’t happen when Paul Edwards did exactly the same thing,
took weeks and weeks till the number showed up in the TPG NBN
service and has now taken weeks to get it back from TPG to MR too.
TPG is absolutely notorious for that in both directions.
I had a (surprisingly?) good experience with TPG. it took only four
days from my initial phone call until the NBN was up and running, and
that included the NBN guys coming out and installing the box.
How long did it take to get the phone number ported ? Took Paul weeks.
I didn't port. TPG gave me a new number
I did port from Telstra POTS to TPG NBN VOIP no fuss, the old connection
died, I plugged the VDSL modem in and the phone was up and running with
the old Telstra number.

To me, that would be a major hassle. Everyone who has your old number
needs to get your new one, and you need to remember the new number. I
effectively only have two choices of ISP here, both pushing phone
service (and TV and even home security) as well. I got tired of
porting the phone, and went to an independent VOIP option, Ooma. Now I
just get Internet service from whichever provider has the best deal at
the time, and should never have to port my number or deal with the
hassle of telling everyone my new number, unless Ooma fails. Basic
phone service with them is free, just buy the device and pay the
taxes. Of course they push other services, and I use their
$10USD/month phone service, with blacklists and other features.

AIUI the most valuable part of one of those systems is the yard sign.
Supposedly, those discourage burglars, send them next door. This
house, like my last one, had a central security/fire alarm system, but
I never paid for monitoring. During one false alarm at the last house,
we were discussing what happened after shutting it off when a voice
came over the speaker asking us for our secret password. My wife
looked up at it in disbelief and asked "What?!" The question was
repeated, I informed them that this location wasn't supposed to be
monitored, and we never heard from them again. I think they'd crossed
some wires when a new neighbor had a system put in.

Our dogs make a lot of noise when anything unusual happens, like the
mail arrives or the water softener kicks in. If that isn't enough to
deter a burglar, I have a revolver, a couple of rifles, and a few
hundred rounds of ammo to drive the point home. I expect never to have
to use those, but they're available if I do. Some guy recently heard
three burglars breaking into his home, cleaned the gene pool of all of
them, and the police/DA response was to shake his hand and charge the

I don’t actually know anyone who has one so I

AIUI the most valuable part of one of those systems is the yard sign.
Supposedly, those discourage burglars, send them next door. This
house, like my last one, had a central security/fire alarm system, but
I never paid for monitoring. During one false alarm at the last house,
we were discussing what happened after shutting it off when a voice
came over the speaker asking us for our secret password. My wife
looked up at it in disbelief and asked "What?!" The question was
repeated, I informed them that this location wasn't supposed to be
monitored, and we never heard from them again. I think they'd crossed
some wires when a new neighbor had a system put in.

I'm actually the 'monitored security system' for my next door

And I don’t actually bother with oranges anyway.
Our dogs make a lot of noise when anything unusual happens, like the mail
arrives or the water softener kicks in.
Yeah, I never bothered with a door bell, the dog left it for dead.

Bit of a problem for the postman tho. We have our letterboxes
outside, usually quite close to the hose, not on the road like yours.

I have 13 8'x8' patio doors instead of windows in all the rooms
except the bathrooms, toilets and kitchens and one of the bedrooms
looks over the letterbox on the wing wall at that end of the house.
The postman zooms around on a small motorbike to make it easy
to zoom up to the letterbox, put his feet on the ground and put
the letters and small parcels in the letterbox.

Apparently the huge great alsatian used to hurl himself against
the glass when the postman showed up and the poor bugger
was worried that one day the dog would come straight thru
and eat him alive. Would never happen in practice because
its armoured glass that you cant even get thru with a sledge

the doors were first released onto the market in the very
early 70s.

If that isn't enough to deter a burglar,
Yeah, I never had any burglar problem while that dog was alive.

Not much of a problem with the neighbours either. One Italian

he showed up and knocked on the door and he used to get so

I got tired of porting the phone, and went to an independent VOIP
option, Ooma.
Mine, MyNetFone can't port my number. I was planning to do that
instead of porting it to MyRepublic but discovered that they cant
port my number. And the MNF Whirlpool offer has no fixed monthly
charge at all, so is much better value than Ooma.
The basic Ooma has no fixed monthly charge. Our (U.S.) federal and
state governments charge taxes for phone service (unless you're a
social parasite, in which case they provide it free!), and phone
service providers pass those taxes along. I like the blacklists
enough, and I think there was something else included, that the
$10/month is acceptable to me.
Yeah, your system is quite different with you paying for incoming
calls from mobiles. We don’t, so don’t need blacklists.
I don't pay per-call on the home (Ooma) line,
Yeah, true, forgot about that.
Post by BruceS
I just don't want to be bothered by all the scammers, telemarketers,
opinion polls, etc.
Ours mostly use fake varying numbers apart from the pollsters.
Post by BruceS
Anyone on one of the blacklists gets a "number no longer in service"
message if they try to call, and my phone doesn't ring. The phone system
itself (a Panasonic cordless set) has an option to block numbers, but it's
a short list, and it still has to let them ring at least once to get the
caller id info.
It should suppress the first ring so it isnt audible.

Now I just get Internet service from whichever provider has the best

But pay significantly more for that.
I'm not sure what you mean.
$10 per month is a lot more than $0 per month.
Ah, right. The $0 is only an option if I go for the Ooma basic plan.

I pay a lot less than what I used to for phone service through the
phone or cable companies,
I pay a little less for FTTN than I paid
for a phone service and adsl2+ service
and get that voip service for free.
Only viable for incoming calls for free tho,
but its only $10/month for unlimited calls
to landlines and $20/month for unlimited
calls to landlines and mobiles and $30/month
for unlimited calls to 40 international countrys.
Our line rent for a landline is well over $35/month now.
You have to pay that for the line if you're on DSL, independent of the
charge for the DSL service?
With the old monopoly telco. Since they lost their monopoly,
some of the newer players do offer what they call a naked
service, no POTS phone service and no need to pay for that.

But they have to have their own DSLAMs in the exchange or
RIM or CMUX to be able to do that and only one has their own
DSLAMs in my town and they don’t offer a naked service either.

Post by Rod Speed
Post by BruceS
Basic phone service with them is free, just buy the device and pay
the taxes. Of course they push other services, and I use their
$10USD/month phone service, with blacklists and other features.
I do use MNF for all outgoing calls to landlines. I use the mobile
for calls to mobiles and when out of the house.
I rarely use my mobile,
I use it a lot now that we coordinate the opening
times of the garage/yard sales on our mobiles.
Most people I know use mobiles a lot,
Yeah, specially the kids. I was helping a couple of kids move
house, 'kids' in their 30s, and those buggers would ring each
other when telling each other what to move to the car.
Post by BruceS
and many of them have given up on home phones.
Yeah, hardly any I know have a landline anymore.
Post by BruceS
So far, that hasn't seemed the best option for us.
I would have if I could have had a naked service but since
I had to have the landline to get the DSL service didn’t bother.
Never called out on it tho unless the net was down or with toll
free numbers. We don’t have the free local call system you lot have.

It’s a close call for me now, I could have unlimited free
national calls and texts on my mobile for $25/month
but normally only spend $10/month.

The cheapest landline service with no calls included is $35/
month which certainly explains why so many don’t have a
landline anymore.
Post by BruceS
Post by Rod Speed
Post by BruceS
so I have a very cheap service that works best with infrequent use.
I do too, no fixed monthly charge, short calls cost me 12c
I don’t usually spend more than $10/month for calls, texts and data.
Post by BruceS
It's a prepaid
Mine is post paid.
Post by BruceS
with no monthly charge, just a charge for any day I use it
Mine doesn’t have that.
Post by BruceS
plus a per-minute charge. I could switch to get rid of the daily
charge and have a higher per-minute, but my pattern of use is
typically long stretches of no use, then moderate use while on
a trip. And now I'm thinking about the cost of the mobile, about
$100/year, plus the cost of the Ooma, $120/year, and wondering just
what I could get for $220/year...
I don’t spend as much as that, $120 a year or so for the mobile,
nothing like that for the voip calls, wouldn’t even be $30 a year
at 10c a call, regardless of the length of the call.

How long did it take to get the phone number ported ? Took Paul weeks.
I didn't port. TPG gave me a new number
To me, that would be a major hassle. Everyone who has your old
number needs to get your new one, and you need to remember the new
number.
Yeah, and the other problem is the lack of an entry in the phone book.
True, though I don't worry about that. Anyone who needs to look me up
in the book, I probably don't want to talk to.
I've found the opposite. I have had a call from someone
who had everything stolen in egypt as a tourist and
needed to get me to tell them the numbers to call to
have their cards cancelled. Sure, a well prepared person
wouldn’t need to, but most arent that well prepared.
That's a bit unusual a situation,
Yeah, its only ever happened the once.

to stuff out of cars they could get into. I had been out to a pissup
the night before, had got some grog in the drive thru bottleshop
and had managed to forget to lock the passengers door again
after that, in a 73 golf which doesn’t have central locking.
Sure, doesn’t happen that often.
Now *that* should be a very unusual situation!
Yeah, never heard of any other kids being quite that blatant
with a wheelbarrow. That was back in the says before central

We don't have 2c, but it would be nice to follow Canada's lead and get
rid of the 1c. Considering the devaluation of the dollar over the
years, we could easily just go to dollars and tenths. Have coins for
$.1, $.5, $1, and maybe $5, paper for higher values. We really don't
use cash much here anyway, everything being on plastic. Some of us
don't use checks much, either. My wife writes one per month to her
hairdresser, and I sometimes use them for annual taxes. Most places
require card users to use the chip if their card has one, and most of
the cards do, now. The way our laws work, if the card has a chip but
the vendor allows the use of the less secure stripe, the vendor takes
the liability for any theft or fraud. If the card doesn't have the
chip, the card provider takes the liability. So there's some incentive.

I like that felony murder law, and would like to see more states have
it. Essentially it says that if you're involved in a felony, and
someone dies as a result of that felony, either during it or right
after, you're guilty of murder. The main intent was to stop criminals
claiming they killed someone "by accident" during a robbery, etc., but
its use has become broader.

I dont even bother to wind the windows up when I leave mine like that.
It does have an immobiliser though, nobody is going to steal it.
Even if I don't lock my car, it takes one of those special keys with
the chip in it to start it. If someone's dedicated and skilled,
they're going to steal your car whatever measures you take. AIUI, car
thieves focus more on very common cars, as they're easy to sell (or
sell the parts from, more likely). Mine has a standard, so anyone with
towing ability could get in, locked or not, put it in neutral, and haul
it away. I'm counting on them going for the Honda Accord parked two
spaces away instead.

outside in public overnight. I do it anyway when in places like
airport parking, but that's mainly as defense with the insurance if
anything happens.

Not with modern security systems they can't. Sure, they can just
drag it onto a truck and drive off with it on the truck, but they
don’t have the truck to do that with and even that doesn’t
work quite a bit of the time. You couldn’t get my car onto
the truck where I park it at home and the dog would have

Even that’s not as easy as it looks. In theory if the car is parked
on the side of the road, you can just show up with a truck and
drag it onto the truck with the winch, but you are sure to be
noticed doing that, blocking the traffic with the truck. And its
easy enough to have a tracking system in the car which sees
the cops show up as its being dragged onto the truck.

Not that easy in a normal carpark either.

Sure, it wouldn’t be hard to make it look like a car
repossession, but again, the car is of no interest to
anyone to go to that much trouble. I'm not stupid
enough to have a high value car that’s worth stealing.

On a modern car just turning the ignition off will usually prevent
anybody without specialised equipment driving away with it. My Mazda 3
even locks the doors automatically when I walk away from it. My 1991 MX5
is quite a different proposition though, hence the immobiliser and the
lack of need to lock it.

How long did it take to get the phone number ported ? Took Paul weeks.
I didn't port. TPG gave me a new number
To me, that would be a major hassle. Everyone who has your old number
needs to get your new one,
most ppl, business, etc', also have my mobile number, and friends/family
always ring the mobile
Post by BruceS
and you need to remember the new number.
now that IS a problem.. :)
Post by BruceS
I
effectively only have two choices of ISP here, both pushing phone
service (and TV and even home security) as well. I got tired of
porting the phone, and went to an independent VOIP option, Ooma. Now I
just get Internet service from whichever provider has the best deal at
the time, and should never have to port my number or deal with the
hassle of telling everyone my new number, unless Ooma fails. Basic
phone service with them is free, just buy the device and pay the
taxes. Of course they push other services, and I use their
$10USD/month phone service, with blacklists and other features.

direct connection to the modem to bypass the switch,

But did you try what worked in that thread you posted a link to ?
I didn't see any answer there. I can connect the tv direct to
the modem, bypassing the switch, and the problem is still
present. that's why I think it's a modem issue.
just turned the tv on now and it's saying 'no internet
connection' (wired) but it is connected. so I switched to wifi
but I'm only getting 10mbps on wifi :(
That’s because of the steaming turd of a modem that TPG supplys.
Paul Edwards had exactly the same problem, that steaming
turd of a modem that TPG supply couldn’t come even close
to delivering the 100/40 service he was paying for. So he
originally switched to a 12/1 service instead.
He has just recently switched to myrepublic and the modem
they supply for $1 does deliver the full 100/40 his is paying
even less than he was paying for the TPG 12/1 service.

I think I'll change to myrepublic. hopefully it's better than TPG.
The modem certainly is.
BUT some are seeing the thruput sag down to 5MB in the peak
time in the evening.
so it's just half as good as TPG on wifi
Nope, its vastly better than TPG on wifi except
for some during peak times. Paul doesn’t see
any slowdown at all so its vastly better for him.
TPG also sees congestion in peak times and has a
'support' operation that doesn’t have a fucking clue.
Expect weeks of delay getting your phone number
ported from TPG, they are notorious for that.

And with TPG its absolutely certain that the modem they
supply is a steaming turd that can't do anything like the
100/40 you are getting with MR if you are FTTP and not
FTTN.
The TPG FTTN modem is crap, but on a 25/5 connection, speed test gives
21.4/4.3 over wifi so throughput is not a problem. Locking up at random
intervals is (about once a week requiring a power cycle) and the DHCP
server is complete rubbish, everything in our house is set on static

It's actually about the only option with the useless Huewai FTTN modem
that TPG foists on it's unsuspecting customers. The DHCP implementation
is severely broken and if you use it for more than a very small number
of devices you end up with constant IP conflicts, and the modem's
response to thos eis to lock up. I have ordered a TP-Link modem and
when that arrives I will hassle the setup data out of TPG (who
cunningly lock down their piece of shit modem so that the only
paramaters the user can changes are userID, IP address and password.

Sure, but it makes a lot more sense to
replace that steaming turd of a modem.

That way you don’t have to do a full reboot every week and can
do the full 100/40 that the NBN service can do over wifi too.

And if you have enough of a clue to change to MR, you get a much
better modem for $1, and a much cheaper 100/40 unlimited service too.

Thanks for that. I am in the process of establishing that I am not
getting what I am paying for from TPG so that I can accept their breach
of contract and terminate. i shall look seriously at MyRepublic as
their replacement.

FTTN.
The TPG FTTN modem is crap, but on a 25/5 connection, speed test gives
21.4/4.3 over wifi so throughput is not a problem.
It is when you have a 100/40 FTTP service and that
steaming turd cant do anything even remotely like
that over wifi and you only use wifi.

Locking up at random intervals is (about once a week requiring a power
cycle) and the DHCP server is complete rubbish,
Yep, that's completely fucked too.

Barking mad.
I thought that was the solution to the (my) problem. ie. the modem can't
handle the switching between the various items connected (to put it into
laymans terms)
Yes, that was one of the things worth trying suggested in
that thread you couldn’t manage to read and comprehend.
well, it wasn't so much that, but I just couldn't be bothered studying it
and learning anything I needed to. I just 'switched off'. I can access my
streaming services via my Fetch box, the internet via a PC and an android
box, all connected to the TV/AV setup, so I don't need to use the smart TV
features.
Post by Rod Speed
But IMO it makes a lot more sense to change to MR instead
and fix that and quite a few other downsides with TPG as well.
but you rubbished the idea that it was a modem/ISP problem when I
suggested it
You never said anything about an ISP problem and
I never rubbish the idea that it could be the modem.

I didn't see any answer there. I can connect the tv direct to
the modem, bypassing the switch, and the problem is still
present. that's why I think it's a modem issue.
just turned the tv on now and it's saying 'no internet
connection' (wired) but it is connected. so I switched to wifi
but I'm only getting 10mbps on wifi :(
That’s because of the steaming turd of a modem that TPG supplys.
Paul Edwards had exactly the same problem, that steaming
turd of a modem that TPG supply couldn’t come even close
to delivering the 100/40 service he was paying for. So he
originally switched to a 12/1 service instead.
He has just recently switched to myrepublic and the modem
they supply for $1 does deliver the full 100/40 his is paying
even less than he was paying for the TPG 12/1 service.

I think I'll change to myrepublic. hopefully it's better than TPG.
The modem certainly is.
BUT some are seeing the thruput sag down to 5MB in the peak
time in the evening.
so it's just half as good as TPG on wifi
Nope, its vastly better than TPG on wifi except
for some during peak times. Paul doesn’t see
any slowdown at all so its vastly better for him.
TPG also sees congestion in peak times and has a
'support' operation that doesn’t have a fucking clue.
Expect weeks of delay getting your phone number

Not barking mad, the DHCP server is completely broken. It takes ages to
assign an IP address, the first symptom was the internet going missing
for 30 seconds or so at times, that was traced to the lease running out
and a new (or the same) address was required. That was fixed by making
leases of infinite duration, but then if something went offline it got a
completely different IP address when it cam back on very annoying
particularly with things like printers and a bunch of IOT sensors that I
have monitoring things like solar power output and solar hot water
temperature. The solution, give everything a static address it is
trivial to do and takes the crap DHCP server out of the picture.

Nope, its vastly better than TPG on wifi except
for some during peak times. Paul doesn’t see
any slowdown at all so its vastly better for him.
TPG also sees congestion in peak times and has a
'support' operation that doesn’t have a fucking clue.
Expect weeks of delay getting your phone number

the DHCP server is completely broken.
The fix is to require them to supply a modem that works properly given
that its not the only problem with that steaming turd of a modem.
Post by keithr0
It takes ages to assign an IP address, the first symptom was the
internet going missing for 30 seconds or so at times, that was traced
to the lease running out and a new (or the same) address was required.
That was fixed by making leases of infinite duration, but then if
something went offline it got a completely different IP address when
it cam back on very annoying particularly with things like printers
and a bunch of IOT sensors that I have monitoring things like solar
power output and solar hot water temperature. The solution, give
everything a static address it is trivial to do and takes the crap
DHCP server out of the picture.
But does nothing about the other problems with that steaming turd
like needing to be reset weekly and not doing wifi at anything like
the rate that the service is operating at with the higher rates.
Since I have a 25/5 connection not doing WiFi at the higher rate is
irrelevant. I have the Fetch TV box running over a Wifi connection and
HD movies from Stan stream perfectly. If I ever upgrade to a 4K or above
TV then I may need to do something about it, but I'll cross that bridge
when I come to it.

of any use to me at present, I have never used all 250gigs of monthly

If I had a couple of teenagers in the house streaming stuff all night

wife just does e-mail and browses the web and the dog uses hardly any

particularly with things like printers and a bunch of IOT sensors that I
have monitoring things like solar power output and solar hot water
temperature. The solution, give everything a static address it is
trivial to do and takes the crap DHCP server out of the picture.

I have this same problem. just googled and got this

currently researching the issue. posting this to
inform
that this problem exists with LG tv's. I suspect
it's a
router issue ??
I guess I should mention that I have tried the obvious
stuff..
Yes you should have.
Post by felix
direct connection to the modem to bypass the switch,
swapping out cables, etc.,
But did you try what worked in that thread you posted a
link
to ?
I didn't see any answer there. I can connect the tv
direct to
the modem, bypassing the switch, and the problem is
still
present. that's why I think it's a modem issue.
just turned the tv on now and it's saying 'no internet
connection' (wired) but it is connected. so I switched to
wifi
but I'm only getting 10mbps on wifi :(
That’s because of the steaming turd of a modem that TPG
supplys.
Paul Edwards had exactly the same problem, that steaming
turd of a modem that TPG supply couldn’t come even close
to delivering the 100/40 service he was paying for. So he
originally switched to a 12/1 service instead.
He has just recently switched to myrepublic and the modem
they supply for $1 does deliver the full 100/40 his is
paying
even less than he was paying for the TPG 12/1 service.
Post by felix
I think I'll change to myrepublic. hopefully it's better
than
TPG.
The modem certainly is.
BUT some are seeing the thruput sag down to 5MB in the peak
time in the evening.
so it's just half as good as TPG on wifi
Nope, its vastly better than TPG on wifi except
for some during peak times. Paul doesn’t see
any slowdown at all so its vastly better for him.
TPG also sees congestion in peak times and has a
'support' operation that doesn’t have a fucking clue.
Expect weeks of delay getting your phone number
ported from TPG, they are notorious for that.
yeah, MR said 6 weeks
Post by Rod Speed
Post by felix
and only a quarter as good on ethernet
God knows where you are getting that shit from.
5mbps vs 20mbps with TPG
You don’t get 5mbps with MR
you said so in another post
I never ever said that everyone who uses MR gets that, fuckwit.
but the fact that it has means that it could
Just as true of TPG because that is due to congestion.
And with TPG its absolutely certain that the modem they
supply is a steaming turd that can't do anything like the
100/40 you are getting with MR if you are FTTP and not
FTTN.
The TPG FTTN modem is crap, but on a 25/5 connection, speed test gives
21.4/4.3 over wifi so throughput is not a problem.
It is when you have a 100/40 FTTP service and that
steaming turd cant do anything even remotely like
that over wifi and you only use wifi.
I don't have a 100/40 connection and like most people, don't need one.
But why not when it is cheaper than all other suppliers.
Lets see:-
broadband service $59.99/mo unlimited data
home phone $10/mo to all aus landlines
total $69.99/mo
But what speed?
25/5 which, as I have said in this thread, suits my needs. Since, in
this house, there is usually only one high bandwidth task running at a
time, it is doubtful that we would see any difference going to 100/40.
As I said why not have faster if it costs no more?
As I have said, the extra bandwidth would be of little or no advantage
to me, I'd have to go through the hassle of changing ISPs, I'd either
have to change my phone number or do without a phone for a significant
period of time and lose my 100 minutes of O/S calls per month.

Not worth the effort (at least at present).

Ours is $59.00 Unlimited with the fastest speed available in the area
But phone is pay as you go (you can also pay $10.00 extra for phone if
you want)
I find I don't need a home phone these days. use my mobile for all calls

That probably works if you are on your own. With more than one person
living together, its much more convenient to have a landline (and
usually cheaper too)

Dunno, most incoming calls are to a specific person and so calling their
mobile saves farting around with the person who answered the phone
not being the one the caller wanted to speak to quite a bit of the time.
Post by keithr0

Depends on whether you need the mobiles for when out of the house, most do.

In that case the landline line rent is an extra.

One of my mates finds that his kid will only answer the
landline for some reason, wont answer the mobiles. He's
just turned 3.

Yeah, some I know have cancelled their landline service and just have
mobiles.

Main downside with that approach is that if you don’t have unlimited calls
and texts within the country, its expensive to call operations that can
leave
you on hold for half an hour or an hour etc. Tho there are unlimited call
and
text plans which cost less than the landline line rent now.

I also know some who have to have a landline for their adsl service
who don’t have a phone plugged into it to avoid spam calls too.

Probably typical Lucky Goldstar but...

Did you try this from Baxter?

"This is fixed by ensuring your wifi network name is no longer than 8
characters (letters and numbers ONLY)

Eg:

BaxWiFi

And this is the killer trick, your TVs 'Name' as inputted in the
settings menu by the factory must also be only 8 letters/numbers long
and MUST NOT contain symbols, or spaces.

Eg:

Was called this: 55LN5710-TE

Changed to this: 55LN5710

Now its Perfect.

Bulletproof now for 3 days... tested on two modems.. Billion 7800NL and
NetGear D6300... On both modems before changes to 8 character names..
constant drop outs and failures.

After name change, bulletproof and faultless. :)"
