    MaxNet IP: 117.x.x.x vs. 222.x.x.x

    I'm sure that someone else pointed out that if you get an IP address from MaxNet that starts out with 117 your bandwidth will suck and your DNS lookups will be slower than molasses, even if you use an external DNS server.

    In fact, I am now checking daily to see what IP address I've been given and if it is 117 I keep rebooting the router until I get one beginning with 222.

    Anyone have any idea why the major difference between the two sets of IP's?

    Is there a better solution to the problem?

    I thought it was the other way round.

    In fact a rain shower has just disconnected me from a 117 to 222 and now my speed is awful.

    BTW that trick with leaving the phone off the hook...doesn't work

    ^ the trick worked on most phone lines, but if your phoneline is badly wired (soaking in the gutter water) then it's possible that the current is not strong enough to maintain the line

    I wonder if it depends on where you are. This morning I had a 117 address and the performance was dismal. Couldn't even do dns queries. I kept disconnecting until I got a 222 and things picked right up.

    But, just to prove how wrong I am, look at these two speed tests done within a few moments of each other, the first with a 222 and the second with a 117:

    117 is routed via CAT in 2 directions , US and Europe.
    It works well for torrents and web access to both places.

    222 is TT&T's private route to US only, it is heavily bandwidth shaped for torrents but works ok for web access to the US. Can't use it for any type of access to Europe, too long distance, too much delays and packet loss.

    So I guess CAT was having problems when 117 was down in performance.

    I'm back in Sweden for a couple of weeks, here is my speedtest results:

    There are two hard to handle things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors.

    with tt&t I didn't see a 222 address for the last 2 months of my contract before moving.

    it was always 124 which was odd since i used to have to re-boot 5 times to get my 124 nimber because it was infinitely faster for torrents.

    Better than what's displayed above

    Got back here to my condo after 2 years in Thailand.
    The Internet for the condominium had been upgraded meanwhile.
    In true Swedish socialistic fashion , every condo owner now have to pay for internet, ie the condominium is group connected.
    Monthly fee is ~800 baht for basic service (internet) with addons like video on demand and telephony.
    I have just finished a Skype call with the missus in Samui (very good voice quality) while at the same time seeding a torrent with 700 KBytes/sec

    I guess my pipe limit is around 30/10 MBits..

    I'm thinking of extending my stay here a few weeks before returning

    Racing right along here as well. Torrents downloading at about 3.6 K and seeding at just over 4 K.

    It looks like I'll have the latest episode of NCIS downloaded by Sunday afternoon or Monday morning. Whoopeee!

    I'll check and post my real speed later when I have stopped Azureus, the estimates I did was quite a bit low.
    Right now seeding to another node from the same ISP as mine.
    He is now pulling between 14-16 Mbit/sec, has downloaded 5GBytes from me during the last 45 minutes..

    I know that feeling well, been in the uk now for three weeks on a 20 meg line. I did have one problem though, the connection dropped out for 20 seconds one afternoon about 2 weeks ago
    Not looking forward to getting back to Thai style internet

    For the last 24 hours I've been on 117. But, it simply stopped working on non-Thai sites. I disconnected and reconnected and got a 222 IP and now all is well. So strange....

    Farking CAT mucked up my line completely for 2 full days.
    I probably spent 5 hours altogether with TT&T support rebooting the router, resetting the configuration, rebooting the router etc. etc.

    Then in the end they say 'Oh, your router must be broken'. 1 hour later Internet is back to almost normal with only the occasional two minute dropout. The next day everything is normal again.

    Great, great support techs they have.

    finally managed to buy a number for 4,000 baht off someone in the village and the tot technicians came this morning to put the line in, 9 days ahead of schedule.

    package is [at]goldcyber and I'm getting a 118. number.

    it's extremely fast, first torrent is coming down at well over 200kB/s.


    maybe it's because nobody else in the area has the internet.

    No, it's because you are on ToT now.
    Sadly, TT&T who was a good provider in the past, has managed to screw up their network and connections during the last year.

    Sounds great. How much per month, and what is the nominal speed? 2000/512 kbps?

    I might go TOT number hunting myself.

    I'm now living in Korat (JoHo area). It seems to me that TOT has a faster connection out here. Just moved into my new home and have the silver package (1536/512Kphs) for 700 baht per month. Seems very good so far it is almost 20:00 hours and here is my download speed is 1307.

    So far I have not seen a download speed slower than 800 kphs
    I use to procrastinate,
    Now I just don't give a shit.
