Re: [SLUG] ADSL with two pair cable [slightly OT]



Service drop outs are pretty regular, the server at the other
end just doesnt reply. The max connection length ive heard of
is 6 days (most windows machines wont stay up that long *grin*)
and ip address's do move around.

For me its fine though, i mean, 60k/s debian isos ;)

The modem is rated to 8mbit down 800kbit up, pity its so
underutilised =(

My only grief is that Bigpond is the only real option for the
sort of net access im after...
