PTCL Wireless


#1

Has anyone reported this or noticed? When connected through PTCL Wireless's Internet, the IP address that shows up to websites is same each time and for all users I think...

Known this since months but never really caused a problem. Yesterday it did so thought of posting it up. Why do they do such a thing? :S


#2

Same reason Wateen does it?

and what is that? Ruhan, its same everywhere. In connection status, the IP address it shows is completely different from the one that comes up if I do an IP check online.


#5

check ur ip from http://ipcheckit.com/

then check ot from https://ipcheckit.com/

if it is diffrent for the 2 then ptcl like wateen is usin the same ip only for http requests


#6

Its same for the two. So why is it like this ruhan?

it shud be the same so means ptcl is not usin a diffrent ip for http requests

this is a good thing


#8

What? Good thing? If someone violates rules of a website/forum, the IP gets blocked, that means no one else using PTCL Wireless can be part of that website/forum!!!

oh i get it now i thought u were talkin abt somethin else

if the ip is same for ever1 this definatly is a crappy tactic by ptcl


#10

they have 5 diferent servers with 5 diferent ips xxx.xxx.xx.165-170

and u get hooked to the WAN of any server and access internet using the external ip of tht server

the ip shown in the status is the ip of ur local WAN

and definately its a crap!!!

their service also gives many errors

and ping is sky high!!

just crap!!


#11

When I used to use PTCL wireless, I could never download from Rapidshare as it always reported that my IP was already downloading something. Really a stupid limitation by PTCL.


#12

a stupid limitation by rapidshare

the stupidity of ptcl in this case is that they are giving shared ip to their customers

How do you mean ‘not working’? It could just be the wireless connection is too slow for voice to work properly.

#17

Browsing internet on PTCL wireless is such a wastage of time.

The speed is worse than ptcl landline,the voice either breaks up badly or lags a lot.

Wireless was supposed to be faster than landline but it is not,for some reason.

It is definitely slower than landline.

Well yeah true ,PTCL wireless sucks big time but its far better than dialup.The thing is PTCL wireless speed is not consistent.Muzzafarabad will be covered in near future because wateen is planning to launch their services in mansehera city in few days.
