    Default Different Jetstream locations

    If I have Jetstream at one location what is stopping me from loging in at a different location which will have a modem etc.

    The exchange.
    When you move house or change 'locations' you have to notify Telecom so that they can ensure the exchange you will be using has a DSLAM for Jetstream access. Then, all going well you can pay $99 to get a Telecom Techie to enable the ADSL Service for you at the exchange.

    If the other "location" you are talking about already has an existing Jetstream setup (on another account) then by changing the login details in the modem, you should be able to log-in as yourself, on your own account.

    I have often wondered this but I have 2 thoughts:

    1) what if your account is a Jetstart yet the line you are using is Jetstream (full or 256k) or vice versa

    2) what about the usage meter. doesnt the Telecom meter measure all traffic on the 'line' yet the ISP measures your 'account' usage.

    If you did this then I think you would be putting the 'adsl enabled line' you are using at risk of incurring a rather large bill. It would be a rough equivalnt of using someones phone line without asking, there may be charges that might not make you popular.

    I think they meant that they put their user name/password into another's router to access their own account.
    I don't know, but guessing it should be OK and work. Actually, might give it a go. See if I can use my jetstream account on the DSL at work. Mmmmmm.
    Just remember that the speed will not change, in that if it is jetstream starter, it will stay that way. The speed is set in the exchange to the physical line that you are on.

    I would say Pheonix is right, but I'll let you know in the next few days as my son is coming over from Canada tomorrow and bringing his laptop which will be plugged into my router.

    Stay tuned.

    Dont forget HTOTW tomorrow night

    Good question. I asked my ISP (Orcon) about exactly that and they said the other user's account (full speed) would incur excess Telecom charges.

    I'm not 100% convinced the helpdesk guy was correct, but I won't be putting it to the test

    Are you sure the speed stays the same?

    Remember on JS Starter if you log in differently (to the Telecom Games realm) then the speed goes to full speed.
    That suggests the speed is not a hardware determined one, but a log-in determined one?
