    Hi All,

    I'm having problems explaining to my un-intelligent friend that the Wireless
    Access Point that I installed at his place is NOT making TPG Dialup
    disconnect.

    He assumes that ever since I have installed the wireless access point, TPG
    drops out because of it.
    As a former Customer of TPG, I experienced many technical difficulties -
    Those including Dropouts for no reason.

    To add to my point, he also has the Telstra Home MessageBank service on,
    therefore if someone rings through, It does not affect the modem (Therefore
    Call waiting is not the problem....)


    Heres an extract from a conversation with him:

    Me: wheres the wireless?
    Him: cant use it
    Me: Why?
    Him: each time some ones calls it disconnects
    Me: your the biggest noob.... the wireless has NOTHING to do with your
    internet
    Him: it does
    Me: it connects my laptop and your computer to share files in network
    places, It has nothing to do with the operation of your modem - Have I
    proved my point?
    Him: no


    Has anyone got any points / comments to try and prove that a Wireless Access
    Point does not interfere with the operation of a dialup modem, and that the
    problems maybe due to TPG's technical problems....??

    Nup...people like him are really too dumb to be even owning a computer.

    Can he return it for a refund??

  3. Having Messagebank won't automatically turn off call waiting, you
    still need to do that explicitly (#43#).

    It's the type of MessageBank where its based inside Telstra and you can
    record your own greeting (It's not that stupid 101 shit)....
    Call-waiting is off

    I remember in the bad old days that messagebank did disconnect me from
    my ISP.
