Yes, thanks. I did follow that thread right through at the time. A neat trick
No point really for my purposes which is BQM as indicator of WAN problems of some kind. I donít game. Plus even using that AAISP it would be defeated by the mast <> phone link if worrying about latency. And defeat the object of saving money!
Iíd just like it because of curiosity to see how the ping varies. I suppose I could set up a routine to ping out regularly.
Just done a ping and tracert to bbc.co.uk on the monitoring m/c. Pings 30; 31;36; 59, tracert 37-59 over 14 hops, with the first two being the router and phone, then a timeout, three on a subnet I shall check the zip range later, another timeout, four that are threembb, two weirdos to identify later, then the target IP address.
Iím really pleased with thinking of plugging the phone into the router powered USB! How healthy that will be for the phone I neither know nor really care for now.
Iím sorely tempted to drop the FTTC PDQ. Even on AA to get it back is free connection on a 6-month term. Then up my EE from 1GB to say 25GB on my main mobile rather than cancel it. That would double as standby WiFi tether and holiday/casual use for me. Monthly use on AA is under 50GB.
That EE upgrade would be less than £9 extra I think. I need to login later and check precisely. Killing the landline starts to look even more tempting as well if I do that. Save AA £35, landline £14. Add this Three and say £9. Total saving £20pm. Worth having.
Of course, if I just move the Three SIM into my main mobile and WiFi tether to that I have a total saving of £40pm.
Hmmm. Even more worth having!

If you never think of anything off the wall, you'll never think of anything original.
