Just switched to this, will see how we go.

It will mean I don't have to tinker with Gargoyle Quotas for our students/boarders innocent

Didn't have a waiting time to switch. Not sure if it is because Vocus has such big Internets now or if it's because we've been with Maxnet since The Garage Days laughing

I'm a little sad that the tech support folks aren't as good at ordinary Kiwi English as they used to be- I find myself having to explain things several times before they understand my questions. Nothing to do with Unlimited. Probably to do with Vocus rather than Maxnet now frown




<- don't ask me where I am - I haven't a clue: its a tech thing ;)
Housewife computerer: not particularly great at either. 
And don't take me too seriously.

So far working ok.

Only issue is internal: too many people in the house all trying to use the internet :)

You can still use Gargoyle for QoS to prevent large downloads slowing down real time traffic small http or voip etc.

And now I'm having to get a new router :(
Prob because it wasn't on power filter
Will try for another of the same as I got the hang of it via Ragnor's instructions last time

Hi Ragnor, any suggestions for a replacement router now my TL WR1043ND has died? Looking for something simple to flash with Gargoyle then setup. Still using the modem you recommended

Thanks
