[W] Maxis broadband disconnection workaround

Updated: December 5, 2009

ehhehe.. slalu ke disconnect? don’t  know la bout u guys/girls, but according to edot, at home, the connection drops at almost every 5 minutes! worse during peak time.

maxis does mention in their so-called “fair” usage policy that they will disconnect u if ur connection idles for a period of time (30 minutes if i’m not mistaken). 30 minit ke 3 minit?? cess..

i googled about this prob and found the solution (i hope) bout 2 weeks ago. all u need to do is change the setting to use a fixed DNS. u can choose to use one of these:

a. maxis fixed DNS:

  • primary: 202.75.129.101
  • secondary: 202.75.129.102

b. OpenDNS:

  • primary: 208.67.222.222
  • secondary: 208.67.220.220

c. Google Public DNS: * NEW!!

  • primary: 8.8.8.8
  • secondary: 8.8.4.4

how to set the new connection?

mobile connect

1.  in the mobile connect application, click on Settings > Network Connection Settings.
2. Click ‘New’ button.
3. Fill these info:

  • Profile name: <whatever u like>
  • APN (choose Static): maxisbb
  • Number: *99#
  • Username: maxis
  • Password: wap
  • DNS (choose Static): <one of the DNS stated above>
  • leave other setting as default

4. click ‘Save’ button
5. that’s it! now connect as usual..

edot have been testing this method for about 1 week now and yes!! no more frequent disconnection!:mrgreen: tapi connection lembab tu lain cite la.. tu mmg masalah maxis!

Note: Alternate DNS (selain maxis) tu boleh digunakan utk apa2 ISP (celcom bb, digi bb, streamyx, dll).
