Telstra 3G unusable

August 07, 2011 — BarryK
Sometimes my Telstra 3G wireless connection gets slow in the evenings. Last night from about 6pm to 9pm is was unusable -- pages would not finish loading, connections timed out.

Then it came good and I was able to upload the kernel stuff.

But all day today it has been unusable. Maybe they are having equipment problems. Even now, at 9.45pm, it is only just working.

Hmmm, won't load. Nothing will load. I will wait awhile before posting this.

Re driver preference

"Regarding the preference "rt2800usb:rt2870sta", I rewrote the code that handles that in Woof, but Lucid is built with an old version of Woof prior to that rewrite. You might want to inform tempestuous that Drake Puppy 0.3 has the kernel. Search my blog for "drake" to learn more. pemasu has also built some puppies with the kernel. Drake is built from a very recent Woof, and I expect that the driver preferences mechanism is working.
