Re: Cool features with the 5260 and Enternet 1.5a

ASI Techs should receive the latest copy of Enternet 300 (v1.5a) very soon if they have not yet received it. SBC should begin shipping an updated version of the SBC Express CD that contains the new version of Enternet 300. There is also an updated version for Macintosh (v1.2?) on the ASI disc.

Its not available yet that I know of. I looked after your post too.
I called Ameritech Customer-Self Install dept to make sure I had the right link and told them I had to reinstall everything in my PC and wanted to know what the download site is they told me to go to this link instead of going to www.efficient.com. They said Ameritech customers have to have use the username: dslsoft and the password: driver , but that SBIS, NBI, and PBI customers should just enter their username and password in. Sure enough it works. They said they it's for registered and unregistered customers. Though the new version 1.5a won't be on hard copy until Mid-July.

I read your thread about Enternet300 V1.5 went straight to link and downloaded. Read installation instructions very carefully I thought. Rebooted everything connected ok but I can't seem to come up with the dsl modem tabs. Your suppose to right click icon and click advanced. Nothing. I tried uninstalling version 1.4 then 1.5 still no dsl tabs. Is this because I'm running with a usb modem instead of with the ethernet modem? I have a 3Com Fast Etherlink 10/100 PCI 3C905C-TX installed in my PC. Would I be better off using it to connect with possibly some other software. or could I use Enternet300. I'm fairly new at all this and would appreciate any thoughts. Would I have to get a different modem? Ethernet?
I have Win 98SE
Speedstream 4060
My speed is: »/speedtests/64···e7c4;1.1
My tweak looks worse now than it did 15 min. ago:
»monitor.dslreports.com/tweak/blo···enternet
Haven't been able to line test for 2 days so many queried up.
Maybe better leaving everything way it is. Like don't mess with a good thing?
Like I said any thoughts would be appreciated.

The features are only possible with the 5260 and Enternet 1.5a.

Your USB modem will not show the advanced features, since it is not the 5260. You would need this modem to begin with.

I contacted Ameritech to see about getting the Ethernet modem and haven't got a reply yet. I've only had 4060 about 6 months. Would my price for one through Ameritech be cheaper than say like on e-bay. Or does anyone have a suggestion of one that is comparible to the 5260. Then could I use my 3Com to connect. Or do you think I'm better off sticking with Enternet. I really haven't had all that bad of luck with it.

What's the old saying...'If things aren't broke, don't fix'.But this is a tough one...I really like the external modem! I like the ability to use a router and all the advantages it gives...Always on, add extra PCs, more stable connection,security...etc...But, the again never used a USB type modem, some have had problems, but most are pleased...I guess it's up to you...I'm sure A'tech will give you an external modem, with the right story...Then you'll need a NIC, which should come with the modem...And really the only reason to change is to set up a router...Good Luck...;)

The 4060 USB has it's own advanced info tabs on it's drivers. You ctl-alt-a to get at them from the driver icon. See Jan Janowski's excellent description in the forum FAQ or in this thread.

I already read that thread and used the information. Was just wandering about specific DSL tabs that are suppose to be in advanced info on Enternet300 icon. The index views explanation of them, but I didn't have them. Checked profile settings and saw I was using V1.5. I'm wandering if I should use V1.5 anyway even though I don't have 5260 modem. Any thoughts on that?

Not sure what other benefits go along with 1.5a but the new status tabs are only for the 526x Efficient modem. They are evidently integrating the status access into Enternet300 for their products that don't provide it otherwise (like the 4060 does).

I think as long as it's not causing any conflicts I'll just leave it installed. Hopefully ameritech will contact me about the 5260 soon and I'll get it.

According to the efficent web site enternet 1.5b was released in 8/06/2001. Anybody has any first hand knowledge of the product or where to get it?

enternet 1.6

there is a enternet 1.6 availible. it adds a personal firewall. the dsl modem tabs are still there. I seems to use more if the computer's resoures. if you search for it it will come up. one seems to be able to downloaded overseas. don't know why maybe copyright issues. also it looks like it was release around the same time as 1.5 so maybe it was release concurrently, to give users the chocie of firewall or not. I really don't know how good the firewall is

V1.6 has been scrapped V1.5b is the latest and will stay that way until Windows XP support in V1.5c, which won't be out for a bit.

with XP, you don't need enternet, raspppoe, dns settings, or anything else. it just loads a driver for your nic, then you type in your user name and password in the network connections. pretty slick actually, no extra weight and you still pull down the same download speeds or transfer rates, however you want to say it. ahhhh, life without enternet is so nice...

I realize that, I was just giving the update on EnterNet. PPPoE is native in Windows XP. Just like this:
1) Create a new connection
2) Choose Connect to Internet
3) Create Manually (option 2)
4) Connect Using Broadband Connection that requires a username and password
5) Give it a name (IE: DSL)
6) Put in your name and password (Don't forget to add your ISP's domain as part of your userid, IE: for Verizon it is userid@verizon.net)
7) Right click and choose properties for that new connection
8) Empty entry in Service name to let it use Wan PPPOE
9) Go to Networking Folder, choose Internet Protocol TCP/IP
10) Choose Properties - Make sure everything is auto assigned

yeah, that's pretty slick on microsoft's part - convenient for the end user though, but no love for anyone else. did you see how XP even has a driver for the nic and how simple the nic installation was? nice, one less thing you have to install or configure. raspppoe is a nice touch for w2k. microsoft should go ahead and throw in a virus scanner in the OS and call it a day, they added everything else. i wonder is life with a mac like this? nice page you have by the way.

OSX on the Mac also has built in PPPoE support. Also Macs come with integrated ethernet cards so you don't have to worry about installing one. So yup life with a Mac is like that also. Thanks for the nice words about my site also.

that's cool to hear, there's no reason why an internet connection should drain resources and be a pain to configure on one computer. and no problem on the compliment, it's so hard to come by accurate information these days, you learn to appreciate it when you see it. how do you like enternet 1.6? i thought about taking a look at it just to see has it improved, is it worth a look?

If that happened you can kiss your computer good bye. MS designing an anti-virus program??? Big No NO as well as big EXPLOIT. Can you imagine all the breeches, patches, leaks, backdoors...ahhh!! It would make sense since they designed the OS from the ground up, but it's MS so there will be bugs of course. It would also add to their monopoly.

XP PPPoE is very nice. I only have the TCP/IP protocol bound to my PCI modem (which XP supports nicely). No more Enternet junk for me.

EnterNet V1.6 actually doesn't exist anymore it got recalled. V1.5b is the latest the next coming out is V1.5c. Which I do like, I'm an EnterNet fan just because it doesn't use Microsoft Dial-up networking like 2 other PPPoE clients. Then of course for Windows 2000 I like RASPPPoE.

Re: Cool features with the 5260 and Enternet 1.5a

Hi there. I just upgraded to Enternet v 1.5, and I miffed about these new features v1.5 is suopposed to have.

I have the Speedstream 5260 modem, but do not see any other tabs or diagnostics with the Enternet v 1.5 software. I know that the 1.5 software is supposed to add a "DSL Modem" tab into the Advanced window, and to the Properties, I think. But, these do not appear for me.

Any solutions to this?

Did you install it while your Efficient modem was plugged in? Is it a USB modem?

Hi Bob,

It is an Ethernet modem. The modem was plugged in and turned on.

First I just tried upgrading from 1.41 to 1.5. That gave me fail to load tap errors even though it connected. After reading your FAQ on your site, I uninstalled. Deleted the Efficient Networks folder, as recommended, and just installed v1.5. That still gave me the failed to load tap error, and no extra tabs, so I uninstalled again, deleted the folder, and reinstalled Enternet 1.41 from the CD that came w/ my modem. (You select the type of modem you have. I thought that would help.) I then upgraded again to 1.5. Still same Tap errors and no tabs.

Despite the Tap errors, I'm pretty sure Tap is loading (because I can connect to the internet). Other than that, the 1.5 software isn't doing anything different (that I can tell) than the 1.41 software.

The problem may also just simply be that I have the 1.5 software and not the 1.5a. (I downloaded it from the Southwest Bell site as linked from p.1 of this discussion.)

Re: enternet 1.6

I'm just using RASPPPoE with Win2k. No extra overhead as far as resources or RAM used. It just works GREAT!

Re: Cool features with the 5260 and Enternet 1.5a

This will fix the Failed to Load Tap error (or should anyway) Click Connections Menu -> Settings -> Advanced button and change the Network Access mode from the default Filter Driver to Protocol Driver.

Thanks. Unfortunately, I already have it set to Private API, Protocol Driver.

No matter. As soon as my router gets here, everyone will be happy! (Hopefully.)
