Have done so, had no reply as yet. What time frame are we looking at?

Keen to get this sorted as I can't see a simple solution to this issue and having no reception during the majority of the day is quite an issue. Calls sound horrible because of the low signal recption problem.

@Scott, I also sent you a couple of emails early this week that you have not responded to. And one more today as a reminder, as I've seen you online here a few times since.

I am a potential new customer, so not a great start... :)

Cheers,
Tarique.

Hi All,

You are also able to PM me rather than Scott directly and I will look into any issues that you have.

Obviously Scott is a busy man =)

The only solution to your problem would be for them to replace your phone with a model that's compatible with the XT network since your one isn't. It would be very interesting to see if they would go that far.

One of my friends have been told by the Slingshot rep that he cannot be shifted over from Orcon to Slingshot without downtime. He said the only way for him to get Slingshot service is to ring orcon, CANCEL the service and then once it's done, Slingshot can start a new connection process which takes between 1-10 business days to get connected, and there is no way to do it without downtime.

He said his "phone line is embedded in an orcon exchange, and slingshot cannot take over it". Is there any way to get him connected without too much downtime? Having an active Internet connection is quite crucial to him.

Hi Mkl,

This would depend a lot on the specific curcumstance. Could you or your friend provide some more specific details so I can take a look into it ?

Hi ayman,

Could you please send me your account number and i'll take a look.

Some general thoughts though:
You have mentioned that you have the incoming ports opened. Does this mean you have just stopped blocking those incoming connections, or you have actually setup manual port forwarding to the specific IP of your ATA ?
Have you tried linksys support direct, as they are generally the best support for actually getting things to function through the device. If you send me your details though I will certainly see what I can do to help.

This may be a frequent disconnections problem we could investigate.
You mention that the PC shows the drop, does the actual DSL or PPP drop out at all ?

I think I've noticed on 1 occasion the PPP has dropped, normally it reconnects so quickly I don't bother going to check the router

If you send me our account number I could investigate if there is an ongoing disconnection issues.

Generally though that sort of issue is quite normal, the industry standard from chorus and telecom is that we have to be able to observe more than 10 disconnections per day on a repeat basis to be able to fault, but we can always tweak things where possible to help.
