mdf: Leave it on DHCP. A static IP on FibreX is just a reserved DHCP address.


Cheers, then I guess everything is working well then. :-)



What sort of speeds are you seeing? (Try nPerf as well...)

I've been having some really strange behavior lately. Every time I try to upload a bunch of pictures onto Flickr my Internet will cut out and it doesn't come back unless I reboot the modem.

This has happened 3 times in a row now and it has me confused.

Also, does anyone know the username/password for the cable modem itself? I'm curious to see what the connection stats are.

Thanks

I've had a few issues with streaming from Neon over the past few evenings <sigh>

 

Anyone else?

That much data on a residential connection. Yip. I'd say that's fair use. Hmmmm.

what the hell could you possibly be downloading to use 11TB of data in a month?

 

IMO thats half the reason why the HFC network was having issues in the first place

When I was young I used to try to download as much as possible, not really caring what it was. my usage now is much, much lower but still above average for nz. Usually around 200gb a month. Last month was nearly 700gb since I lost a hard drive and had to resync all of my cloud storage.

That's a bit unnecessarily harsh don't ya think?

 

That was a one off backup of all of my family photo and videos and clients photography / videography for the last 20 years to a cloud backup service. I believe I'm totally entitled to use my internet for this, it's why I pay for unlimited 1000/100 after all. I figure the biggest risk I have locally is drive failure and cryptolocker - having it all backed up in the cloud as well covers me from this.

 

The maintenance backups will be no more than maybe 100gb a month moving forwards, just the initial seed that is a bit large.

What sort of upload speeds were you getting? I'm using Backblaze and apparently getting 24.72 Mbits a sec. Seems a lot faster than on the previous 130/10 plan

I was reading those comments and thinking they were unduly cruel. I'll never understand why so many people seem to think that a person is a "bad user" for going through a few terabytes in one month, especially if it's just a one-off thing while other months are more reasonable.

 

With a plan like this, I'm sure that there are a lot of people that are looking into setting up cloud backups and whatnot. That'll result in large, short-term bursts of usage, with things settling down thereafter.
