said by e_phils:Good to know. I've done one firmware update on my ALU so far, that was last year. Might look for the new one and do it as well. Thanks! said by TrainAss: said by TiberiusX:
It is a soft launch, so I would expect it not to be listed quite yet and yes it may not be available it all areas. If you call up Telus I am sure they would be happy to do a check on your line to see if it is.
I'll do just that! Although, I have an ALU connected to a (TELUS) DLink and my own router. I saw another thread where the ALU doesn't have enough internal memory to fully support 50/10... So I need to figure out how to be able to use my own network equipment w/the Actiontech... or find a new modem that WILL support the higher speeds.
*sigh* Why can't ISPs have a set of equipment for those of us that like to be different?
The ALU will work perfectly fine with QoS on. I installed the modded firmware (has PhyR and SRA enabled) and disabled QoS.
It made a difference of about 0.5 to 0.7 megabits in speed tests using »vancouver.speedtest.telus.com
So even if you leave QoS on, there really isn't too huge of an impact on HS50.
