ADSL connection problem, bad ADSL signal, no phone signal

Do you have a problem with a stable ADSL connection with TOT, TT&T, 3BB or whatever Internet Service Provider in Phuket / Thailand?

Here is what you should check first:

Do you have a proper phone line from outside your house in to the house, than here is usually the bottle neck of the signal?!

Usually you have a signal display in the interface of your ADSL modem which shows you the SNR Margin and the Line Attenuation / Loop Att..

Here is the information what the SNR Margin and the Line Attenuation / Loop Att. should be to work fine.

If the signal is below (for SNR Margine) or above (for the Line Attenuation) you should definitely change first the phone line wiring in to your house and when this is done and there is still a problem, your ISP needs to check the phone line coming to your house!

SNR is Signal to Noise Ratio (aka Noise Margin or Signal to Noise Margin)

Relative strength of the DSL signal to Noise ratio.

6dB is the lowest dB manufactures specify for modem to be able to synch. In some instances interleaving can help raise the noise margin to an acceptable level.

The higher the number the better for this measurement.

6dB or below is bad and will experience no synch or intermittent synch problems
7dB-10dB is fair but does not leave much room for variances in conditions
11dB-20dB is good with no synch problems
20dB-28dB is excellent
29dB or above is outstanding

Loop Att. is Line Attenuation

Measure of how much the signal has degraded between the DSLAM and the modem.

Maximum signal loss recommendation is usually about 60dB. The lower the dB the better for this measurement.

20dB and below is outstanding
20dB-30dB is excellent
30dB-40dB is very good
40dB-50dB is good

50dB-60dB is poor and may experience connectivity issues
60dB or above is bad and will experience connectivity issues

Output Power

How much power modem (upstream) or DSLAM (downstream) is using. Maximum recommended is about 15dB.

The lower the power the better for this measurement.

Caffeine, the new Google search index

Two days ago Google announced the completion of a new web indexing system called Caffeine.
Caffeine provides 50 percent fresher results for web searches than their last index, and it’s the largest collection of web content they have ever offered. Whether it’s a news story, a blog or a forum post, you can now find links to relevant content much sooner after it is published than it was possible ever before.
Some background for those of you who don’t really know how search engines work: when you search Google, you’re not searching the live web. Instead you’re searching Google’s index of the web which, like the list in the back of a book, helps you pinpoint exactly the information you need.
(Here’s a good explanation of how it all works.)

Online File Sharing Services

When you want to share a file with others but don’t want to hassle with email attachment limits or running a home server, use a fast online file sharing service. Here is a collection of some online file sharing services:

Megaupload

Megaupload, like other popular file sharing tools, has three options of service. You can share files with no sign up at all, they will be limited to 500MB in size, have a 45 second splash page when downloaded, and be given lower priority in the server queue. Signing up for a free account boosts your priority in the queue, raises your maximum file size limit to 2GB, and gives you 200GB of online storage.. for free!!. Premium accounts give you unlimited storage, unlimited file size, remove the wait time for downloading, and enable a host of features like batch downloading, password protection for files, and support for FTP and direct HTTP linking.

.
MediaFire

MediaFire offers multiple options of file sharing. At the basic option you can upload as many files as you want, limited by a 200MB cap per file. Free accounts will hold files for 30 day from the last time they were downloaded. Premium accounts start at $7 a month and boost the file capacity to 2GB per file, enable site-to-site transfer to your MediaFire account, enable embeddable Dropbox folders, and offer direct file linking—no MediaFire splash page when you share a link to a file. The folder-based organization of MediaFire makes it simple to share entire batches of files with others, like project files or holiday pictures.

Dropbox

Dropbox got many users by combining online file sharing with local storage and synchronizing. You can use Dropbox exclusively as a web-based file sharing tool to upload and organize files in folders, easily sharing them with yourself or friends. Grabbing the Dropbox client, however, allows you to share any file from a folder on your computer. Files stored in a local Dropbox folder are automatically synchronized to Dropbox on the web—useful for all sorts of options like syncing your OneNote notebooks among computers or keeping your password keyrings up to date.

RapidShare

The RapidShare service has multiple layers of user accounts which can be quite confusing to a new user. Without signing up you can upload a single file of 200MB, and your file can then be downloaded up to 10 times—perfect for just sharing a file with a few friends. When you upload files, you’re offered the chance to set up a free “collector’s” account which gives you further options to store and organize your files. Collector’s accounts accumulate points, which you can convert into a premium account—but no clear explanation of the process is anywhere to be found on the RapidShare site. Purchasing a premium account boosts your storage to 20GB and raises your per-file-cap to 2GB.

Drop.io

The drop.io service is available in two options. The free service supports “file drops” which can consume up to 100MB storage. Premium services start at $19 a month and expand the available storage from 100MB to 10GB and up, depending on how much storage and how many drops you would like. Drop.io’s “file drops” are where it really stands out compared to other file-sharing services. File drops are active pools of files to which you can add batches of files, share with others, allow other people to add files and collaborate, and view the media directly from drop.io’s media viewer.

This options are no solution for you, contact us for other online file sharing solutions.

Novel Spam filter guarantees to detect any spam e-mail

U.S. researchers are working on new method for spam detection

U.S. researchers have allowed themselves to come up with a method to detect guarantees any spam sent from a botnet e-mail. Falsely classified as spam e-mails are a thing of the past. There remains the problem, faster than the spam bot networks to operate.

Identified as an effective method for Spam detection, researchers at the International Computer Science Institute at Berkeley and the University of California at San Diego, the templates from Spam bot nets, reports New Scientist. According to the observations of the researchers are using certain template bot nets to distribute Spam in all the world, which is not detected by conventional Spam filters, without further ado.

Through the analysis of Spam, the system of U.S. researchers tried to determine by reverse engineering the appropriate Spam template. Once this is determined, all Spam e-mails of one bot net accurately detected. The researchers promise that not a single e-mail is mistakenly identified as Spam.

As an effective Spam protection but the system would work much faster, because in the experiment was the analysis of the Spam messages for ten minutes, then the presentation of the Spam filter was known. Another problem is the amount of different bot nets, all of which must be recognized in order to be able to offer effective protection.

Anti Spam services from Phuket Hosting already recognize nearly 98% of Spam Mails as we use the filters of Cloudmark, SpamAssasin and anonymous human adjustment of Spam filters on our mail relay-server farm.
