Oh hell yeah. What a modem delivers for the price is rather remarkable.
This will be it. Home routers are made down to a price and generally not up to a standard.Like any piece of software your modem/router can get screwed up. Something gets written to memory incorrectly and then it screws everything up. It happens.
Most modem/routers use a stripped down version of Linux called Busybox. Which is very reliable and stable. Sometimes things just go wrong. A restart will use the existing settings which if screwed up just continues the problem. Resetting takes the modem back to factory settings. Sometimes resetting is the only way to fix a problem.
Yes, this is what I was thinking too. Almost certainly not true that this was the cause as a reboot fixed the problem.Any network policy to groom or throttle traffic is done on the network side only. Usually uses a few pieces of info like username/login, source & destination IPs and protocol etc. This will be persistent and shouldn't be affected by home router reboots or resets no matter how much you flick the switch.
I'm sure it would be widely known and more popular than free beer if you could reboot your home router to reset your quota I would be a fan too.Yes, this is what I was thinking too. Almost certainly not true that this was the cause as a reboot fixed the problem.
Well that’s something you don’t hear every day.Had NBN enabled at my place today (50/20 plan)!
Optus supplied a new Sagem modem, supersedes my existing Sagem modem that was used for resale aDSL. But they did the remote service swap at 10am (Google Wifi told me what time the internet failed) and it recovered soon after...existing modem does PPPoE (aDSL) and IPoE (NBN) natively.
When I got home, I removed the aDSL splitter & moved the phone to the RJ12 modem port. No dial tone straight away, but within minutes the NBN connection reset & the phone started working.
Getting a consistent 46Mbps/18Mbps on the iPhone, wifi'd to the Sagem (all this shit is in the building on the street) but when in the house (connecting via NetComm Ethernet over Power) to the Google Wifi, speeds drop considerably...something like 10Mbps/10Mbps.
I used to blame my aDSL for speed but seems it might more likely be these 5 year old EoP boxes. Regardless, speed is definitely faster on NBN.
Will look into new EoP boxes but man, the whole migration to NBN experience is painless!
Net neutrality just means some ride roughshod over the top of others.Fark. RIP net neutrality then. May as well just go the whole way and limit Netflix to those with a high enough social rating score....
