In view of PTCL's new rate of 512k @ 1200 Rs (unlimited). We expect that MBL will also make its packages unlimited.

Nayatel are currently digging up my street again, Maybe they didnt fully fit it last time.

Actually they are digging up most of my surrounding streets. Maybe a good time to go for a connection?

They are laying fiber ducts underground.

Any way, I urge ever MBL/Nayatel customer here to send an email at [email protected], [email protected] and [email protected] to apprise them of the current situation with PTCL and ask them about any plans they might have for the future. Remove the 'REMOVE' part from the email addresses.

The CDA-Duct project was given to Worldcall to lay down fibre ducts in Islamabad. I think so far they've covered f-6 f-7 and f-8..and they're half way through f9 park.

Nopes its Nayatel, they have the Nayatel plastic yellow tape that they lay over the cables and then cover it with dirt. They seem to be making the DP right infront of my house. Ill talk to any Nayatel reps if they come by, so far only laborers have been around

the WC-CDA FO project is now running around F-11. They're upto F11/3. I dont expect too many great things from either.

Am happy with Nayatel atm, the 8-8 package + sunday is really cool. atleast it behaves like a dedicated connection through out the un-monitored time period.

They need a package update and lowering of prices or else some customers will start leaving them for LINKdotNET and PTCL.

it remains to be seen if lnd (link dot net) could offer the tech support and after sales service that Micro/nayatel does.

ptcl forsure doesnt!

Even though both PTCL and LDN have released their unlimited packages, even a quick glance at their threads is enough to keep me at MBL. People getting lower speeds, and disconnections. Ive used MBL for 2+ years, im happy :D

From where i can get the latest firmware and how can i install it myself without visiting the Micronet office. And how can i have the old Firmware backup so taht if i have problem i can switch back to old version.

I am getting avg speed of 45KB which is 30% less than 64KB which is a bit unfair

ok i have researched on ur router/modem u just need to enable UPNP on ur router/modem and ur ports will be forwarded automatically

u dont have to do that to forward ur port

u can forward ports by two different ways

1. by telnet

2. by interface of the router

if u want to do that by telnet

telnet ur default gateway

a.. telnet 192.168.1.254 ( default gateway )

b.. Administrator ( User Name )

c.. Blank ( Password )

d.. Menu [Enter]

e.. NAT [Enter]

f.. MapAdd [Enter]

g.. Select "intf" as Internet using Up and Down arrow keys.

h.. Out side IP should be WAN IP(Static IP) of your router.

i.. Inside IP should be IP of your system which is listening on given port.

j.. Foreign IP should be left as it is.

k.. Inside Port the one you want to forward.

l.. &

m.. Outside port should be same

Note: You should select the protocol either TCP or UDP as needed during above procedure.

Now complete the process and press OK using TAB key.

At the end

write saveall and enter

and thats it ur port is forwarded :D

the firmware is not the problem

you will get around 45-50KB download

because there is a header of 15% that is included in the each packet you send

thats a standard so we cannot change that

then it depends on your line condition also

the copper has its own resistance due to which after removing the header+resistance

you should get a download rate between 45-50KB

so that means if i have 1mb link then i will ony get 90Kb instead of 128KB and my 38KB will be wasted :(

and also

what about wireless connection there will be no issue about the line condition will i get more on wireless? 50 to 55KB

on 1mb link you'll get around 90-100KB

and no medium is resistance less in this world

every medium has its own resistances

so you cannot achieve the ideal :)
