i am aware.

advice is, change it then.
Do you have any recommendations? I'm a complete noob when it comes to modems.
No idea what makes a good one and what makes a bad one. ><

hi liangtam, thanks for the suggestion. I am quite new in this. So the ip that should be reported to dyndns should be the wan ip? I went to http://wanip.info/ and saw that my wan ip and the real ip are 2 different things. the dynamic dns app in the nas is currently updating the real ip to the dlinkddns.com which mapped it to an alphabetical address.

Thus, I should access the nas remotely using the wan ip and not the real ip?
wanip.info cant detect the correct value

You can try pinging [yournamehere].dlinkddns.com and ensure it is the same WAN IP listed in the 2Wire status page first.

Is there a way to hack the power setting to 10? Max is only 6 now. An SOS SingTel technician told me that it's restricted to 6 by IDA to prevent excessive radiation, but the modem actually supports a higher output. Any way?

And also, any ideas how to solve the frequent disconnections caused by the DSL Training errors? Technician told me that P2P software like PPStream can cause the disconnections? Anyone can confirm this?

And does anyone have any experience with requesting a change of modem to the 2Wire 5012NV while not on the exStream plans? I tried to convince SingTel but the helpdesk said the network department will charge me for it! WTF! The 5012NV costs only $20 more at $170 than the 2701HGV-E at $150!

They will only change the modem to 5012NV for you if you only take fibre plans only.They will change you to the same 2wire 2701HGV-E V6 for you when your modem becomes faulty.

2wire Power setting 10 ( 400 mW) only available in early batch, like 2700HG, 2700HG-D, (Power can be adjusted from 1 to 10).
For 2wire 2700HGV-2, the Max power setting is capped at 6 ( 250mW)(Power can be adjusted from 1 to 6). for Singtel firmware, but it can be hacked to 10.
For 2wire Singtel V6 firmware, the Power setting cannot be adjusted. the Max power output posibly only 150mW.
So as confirmed by test in the same house, the Earlier batch 2wire has the strongest wireless power signal and the latest 2wire has a weakest wireless power signal.

Hi I am having a problem with the connection. The modem manage to connect but I am unable to surf any website except singnet. In fact when I try to surf, i will have this auto generated page that shows me the quick ppp config guide from singnet. Has anyone experience something like this before?

just dumped the 2wire router/modem and replaced it with Prolink H2701 (Aztech has one as well.. should be either DSL605 or 705EU) for about $45.
No more random disconnects, very stable now

Recently I have diagnosed one of my customer's 2Wire 2701HGV-E modem, According to customer Singtel told him, the modem is malfunctioning and customer should buy new modem as persistent disconnection/intermittent connection issues continues. I have tested with different/better quality AC adaptor and issue resolved. I have also measured the output of original AC adaptor, it seemed to have some periodic ripple/spike which is related to dead output capacitor.

2Wire 2701HGV-E is actually has good features although singtel's own firmware limits some of the features. Biggest common issue due to the low quality AC adaptor. 2Wire 2701HGV-E manufactured in Malaysia and AC adaptor mass produced with in China.

You meant 2700HGx adapter instead.
PS: 2701 later batches are fully MIC instead.
