MAC Address and Telstra
Every so often, Telstra's ADSL service spits the dummy. The problem for me is that I'm connected via a router rather than Windows which means zero support.
Generally this is ok as I try connecting with OS X but today OS X worked and Router didn't. After some stuffing around.....I changed the MAC address on the wired side of the router...bingo....connected.
It seems that my router's MAC address must have been locked or such. Anyway...if someone find this useful. Bonus is that everything seems HEAPS faster which I'm not going to argue with.
neuronwave is the personal site of Ben Hosken. I am the founder of Flink Labs, a data visualisation studio based in Melbourne. Previously I founded AgentArts, where I developed a recommendations system that we ultimately sold to MSFT.I have two patents, one in Recommendation Systems and one for a datamining algorithm I invented. I have a strong interest in physical computing, emergence, self organising systems, immersive games, bluetooth ad hoc networks and other fun things.
A while ago I built and ran Blog Change Bot - an AOL IM Bot which notified you when blogs you like are updated. I also built IcyPole, a bluetooth based P2P mobile phone app in 2004. With Suzette, I've built Playground Finder - a community contributed site for parents to find playgrounds nearby and while traveling for their kids to play in. Its a "playground" for my social, location, community and mobile interests.
I live in Melbourne with my wife Suzette, son Oskar Tex and my little girl Jasmine
