My Smart Bro (Wi-fi) internet connection speed

Recommended Posts

elijahpau, how about using opendns.org on smart bro? does it optimize internet connection speed?

you can use open dns but it doesn't optimize your speed. what open dns do is just  replace your default dns server on smart bro (which is sometimes better) but you will hardly notice any difference.

just want to ask if only the pins 4 and 6 will be shorted ryt? so the remaining pins 1,2,3,5 will be hanging free(not touching each other)..what if ill put a wire only for the two pins that shorted pins 4 and 6, then the rest pinss 1,2,3,5 will be blank, if you use a tester only pins 4 and 6 will have the continuity is that possible? is it the same effect with the canopy(will be resetted)..?

yes that's correct. you can leave the pins 1,2,3, and 5 hanging free without touching each other. though i don't think you can leave those pin locations blank in the RJ-11 socket(is this what you mean?) because i haven't tried it yet. :wink:

if posible..("correct me if im wrong..") assuming that i resetted my canopy, the default settings will be back ryt? what default configuration should i put then? for exmaple the IP configuration, if the canopy will be resetted, the IP configuration that smart broken inputed there will be gone,  in that case even if i reset my canopy my connection will totally out..so what should i do then..?

yes the default settings will be back. just leave the IP configuration. it will not be gone. if you cannot connect to Smart BRO after resetting, download their QuickFix program and use it. :smiley:

Triny ko i-tweak 'yung canopy settings (motorola, kapareho nu'ng nasa image). Kaso nu'ng ni-reboot ko, nawala 'yung connection. Then nu'ng nag-connect ulit (wala akong ginagawa basta na lang ulit nag-connect), wala namang ma-open na sites. Kaya ang ginawa ko binalik ko 'yung dating settings sa Control Panel (yung sa IP address na default).

Ano ba gagawin after pindutin 'yung "reboot"?

Oops, sorry. Is Tagalog not allowed? :D

Anyway, as I was saying, I changed the canopy settings (motorola, corresponds with the sample image). But when pressed "reboot," I got disconnected. After waiting for a few moments, my connection went back but I cannot open any website. So what I did was to revert to the default IP address setting on the Control Panel.

What should I do after pressing "reboot"? Do I really need to revert to the old settings after accessing the canopy?

Thanks!

that speed is w/ YM opened and I did not even erased my cache and also with 6 tabs/websites  open (firefox), imagine if clean this up my speed will definitely be higher.

I haven't opened or tweaked  my Canopy since last December. this shows that once you save your tweaked settings, speed will be consistent

@sirkeled

Yup, those are the correct settings...hmmm Taytay....if still, the speed wont improve it's time to call customer service and complain about the slow connection.they will send technicians the next day and ttell the technicians to use a different base station. tell them also to change your antenna. hey, its all free.

I've done it correctly right? And I also pressed "reboot" after. BTW, I'm located at Taytay.

wait.. before you clicked REBOOT. have you clicked Save Changes? :smiley:

@jovantot

you can't change your own IP address and connect to Smart BRO. dynamic po kasi eh. hindi talaga pwede. although once in a while they change your IP address. anyway, you can see your MAC address on your surge suppressor (the little box that connects the two cables from the computer to the antenna - please take not that it's not the power supply connection).

i suggest you to try and use a default plug instead. :wink:
