Re: Where to get a replacement Optus Cable broadband modem?
Apparently there are some modems set for Telstra, some set for Optus - even if they are the same model. If you try and connect up with a modem for Telstra on Optus, they might not support you at all and you may be unable to connect it. If you're gonna go via Ebay, it has to have been used on the Optus network as I think Optus will check the serial number on the modem before they'll OK you.
It sux how they screw money out of you this way.
