  1. T-Mobile? That doesn't make too much sense, T-Mobile (and its predecessors VoiceStream and Omnipoint) never operated analog networks. Matter of fact, neither did Sprint. T-Mo and Sprint were all digital from their inceptions. my first cell phone was an omnipoint "flip" phone... the flip was just a small plastic piece that covered the numbers when flipped closed... around 1996 or so....
  2. trainphones.nyphonejacks.com this project was done a few years ago when i was still using the subway to commute to work.. I listed all the numbers that i obtained as well as photographs of (mostly) nyc subway payphones.. most numbers were obtained by ANI but some were taken from sticker on phone, usually if there was no dial tone... verizon got out of the payphone business around the time that this project was going on so some of the phones were verizon phones on that site and some were after from whatever company bought their payphone business.. not sure if the info or payphone directories on that site are useful for whatever you are trying to do, or if they are even relevant any longer..
  3. not here..
  4. hey! I like my 2500...
  5. lol... true, I don't really have much experience with them.... and most of my experience with other ISPs is on business class service, which usually has its own phone number and CSR agents with usually faster response times then residential service.. I guess its like me trying to argue with the Verizon FiOS tech support people because I don't use their shit router/modem that they can not troubleshoot issues with my home internet connection
  6. have you tried to call them to see if they will bridge it from their end?
  7. yup, if a modem is properly bridged if you run a traceroute then you shouldn't get the modem as the 2nd hop... if a modem is not truly bridged then a traceroute will give your router as the first hop, then the modem as the second hop... been a while since i saw a surfboard out in the wild.. most of the motorola modems that I have seen lately are 4 port modems that optimum online generally only provides for static IP customers.. Sorry I can't give much help with comcast, as most of my knowledge/experience is with TWC, Optimum (cablevision), Verizon Fios and DSL... With TWC some modems you are able to bridge directly with the GUI, but the easiest method is to just call them up and have them put the modem into bridge mode - it is best to keep them on the phone and for you to test before you hang up with them because occasionally they will not do this properly, and/or certain modems do not properly bridge With Optimum, they are generally bridged already because they do not generally use combo router/modem devices and give you a shit "smart router" that is not really compatible with SIP so I generally remove these as soon as I arrive at a customer With Verizon DSL, most modems are able to be placed into bridge mode under the "networks" settings in the GUI, however I have come across at least one combo router/modem that is not capable of being placed into bridge mode (sorry forgot brand/model), I usually replace those modems right away. With FiOS, since most my customers are business customers with out TV services I replace the shit actiontec routers they install. The modem needs to be connected to the ONT via CAT5/6 and not coax/RG6. Log into the GUI, release the DHCP lease, then remove the router and connect the new router. Without releasing the DHCP lease you will not get an IP, supposedly after the lease expires the new router should pick up an IP, but who has around 2 hours to sit around and wait? When they have TV services I just disable SIP ALG and hope for the best, some customers will experience VoIP issues with the actiontec while others seem to either not have any problems, or do not report any problems to us. *(I know this information isn't relevant or helpful to YOUR situation, but perhaps will help someone else using one of these services, sorry I couldn't be of more help)
  8. the surfboard isn't automatically in bridge mode? I dont recall those being all in one router/modems... thought they were already transparent bridged out of the box.. but dont think they are DOCSIS 3.0 or whatever the latest version is, so speed would likely suffer... what if you factory reset the modem that they gave you and tried to put it into bridge mode before reconecting the rg6? or would whatever they push down the line undo any changes you have done to the modem config? EDIT: static IP may be your only option for effectively eliminating a double NAT by using your own router behind their modem...
  9. AFAIK you can't bridge comcast.. Comcast isn't available in the NYC area, but we do have customers outside of NYC that have comcast, and even trying to call them to bridge the modems has been either hit-or-miss or completely unsuccessful, although this is mostly going off of the guy in my office who does most of our remote support... I think (although i may be mistaken, being overworked as I have been) that I may have tried to bridge their modems with the GUI. I am sure that if you buy your own modem instead of using the one that they provide you you should be able to bridge it. I have come across DSL modems that were not able to be bridged, as well as TWC modems that were not able to be put into bridge mode, or not able to REALLY be put into a bridge mode... if a modem is bridged, as in a real transparent bridge the ISP DHCP leases should be binded to the routers MAC address not the modems MAC address..
  10. at least in my area TWC will give out MULTIPLE public IP addresses from a DHCP cable modem if you bridge it.. I have many customers who have physically isolated networks, different routers, switches, wiring, connected to the same bridged TWC modem and each modem gets a separate public IP and the modem is not included in a traceroute.. also ISP DHCP leases are usually binded to your MAC address... so many times rebooting your router/modem/ont is not going to get you a new IP, but if you change the MAC address of the router after you reboot all of these things then you should get a new IP... keep in mind, with FiOS you MUST release your IP in the routers GUI under the WAN settings before connecting a device with a different MAC, or changing your MAC..
  11. my "main" cell phone is a sprint phone with google voice integration... so basically my calls all route thru google voice.. i wanted a back up phone for when sprint service is non-existant, and/or my battery is dead so instead of getting ONE phone, I ended up getting TWO... one is on verizon's network via tracfone.. one is on at&t as a gophone... I had to use a non-smartphone imei to activate the phone to get the 10c per min plan without data, they claim you can not get the 10c/min plan or the $2 unlimited daily plan with a smart phone, but this isn't true. When I log into my account it knows I have a smartphone on their network and it implicitly states that I must use wi-fi only with my plan, which is fine with me. on to my question.... is there anything anyone is aware of that might be interesting on the different networks to explore?
  12. nevermind...
  13. seems to be something within the computer itself, since it appears to continue to reply to pings when nothing else is connected.. seems like strange behavior... I originally thought there was some rogue device on my network since i kept the same SSID and WPA2 password I thought maybe someone figured out that my wifi password is just two curse words that could actually make sense as a sentence lol... Guess it is cached somewhere within the computer itself as "remembering" its other IP.. just seemed strange to me once I identified what it was... now I guess its onto how, or why...
  14. I just installed Tomato yesterday, replacing ddwrt... it is a fuck ton better.. my 5ghz radio works again, and speed tests from wifi with ddwrt were half what i am now getting with tomato on the 2.4ghz radio (my laptop apparently can not pick up the 5ghz signal.) I was going thru the clients in the router and I found an unidentified client... I was able to ping this IP I ran a port scan, all ports closed I ran Fing.. it did not find this IP on my LAN. I disconnected all of my wired clients... still able to ping I connected my laptop with a patch cord and shut down wifi... still able to ping... mother fucker turns out it was showing me the IP and MAC for my laptop. I looked up the MAC before going thru all of this and it showed Inventec Corp, never fucking heard of them so I thought it was some cheap ass knock off tablet or something, not my cheap ass Toshiba laptop.. I understand the need to have different IP addresses for wired and wireless NICs on my PC... I understand that the "connected devices" table in my router is actually an IP reservation table that may show "connected devices" until the lease expires... but why the fuck was I constantly able to ping the LAN IP address of my laptop, even when it was not connected... it even continued to return pings while I did an ipconfig/release in a different command prompt window... (originally I was starting to write a post asking for help identifying this device, I happened to figure out that it was the LAN IP of my laptop just as I started writing the topic title, but since it confused the shit out of me I figured might as well finish the post, and maybe someone can enlighten me as to why my computer was able to remember its wired LAN IP address (set to DHCP) when it was not connected to anything.... even when I had wifi off and before i connected the LAN cable - and did an ipconfig/release...... )
  15. I know locally to me many test numbers / recordings are within the nxx-99xx range
