Strange problems are happening with some STC AFAQ DSL Shamil servers.

It used to happen on some websites depending on your IP address. But now there is a problem with all HTTP connections on some of STC servers. You can still ping but no HTTP access. Check your IP address from your DSL modem admin page or simply visit this website (but since you are offline then this site will be useless). If your IP address is one of the following: 94.99.119.* / 94.99.22.* / 94.99.117.* (there are others but those are the ones that I confirmed) simply disconnect and reconnect and you will get a new IP address. I have confirmed that the following IP addresses work: 77.31.250.* / 77.30.90.* / 94.97.48.*. STC as usual isnt helping. How can you tell them that some of their proxy servers (I assume) are broken. Just keep those IP numbers in mind.

DEAR BROTHERS AND SISTERS

I DONT UNDERSTAND THIS COMPLICATED LINGO.. CAN SOMEONE PLZ EXPLAIN/SUGGEST ME IN SIMPLE WORDS WHAT I SHOULD PURCHASE IF I WANT INTERNET ON THE GO FOR MY MACBOOK PRO? TO BE MAINLY USED FOR SKYPE AND YOUTUBE? I DONT WANT BLURRY SLOW QUALITY VIDEO ON SKYPE. SO WHICH KIND OF USB MODEM SHOULD I PURCHASE WITH HOW MANY GB FOR UNLIMITED SKYPE USAGE? I TRIED LINKSYS BROADBAND FOR HOME INTERNET MOBILY WIMAX BROADBAND FOR HOME INTERNET BOTH HAD POOR WIFI CONNECTION. I HAD TO LITERALLY SIT NEXT THE BOX FOR A MEDIOCRE SPEED. SINCE I TRULY WANTED A WIRELESS SERVICE, I PURCHASED ZAIN USB MODEM WHICH OFFERED UNLIMITED NET WITH 7.2MBPS FOR SR399/MONTH. 3 DAYS INTO IT AND SO FAR I AM UNABLE TO OPEN SKYPE, YAHOO MESSENGER, YAHOO PAGE, GMAIL, YOUTUBE. BASICALLY NOTHING BUT A ZAIN PAGE OPENS UP. SIGNAL STRENGTH IS SHOWING TO BE VERY STRONG BUT NO NET DESPITE CONNECTED NOW IN LESS THAN 10 DAYS, I AM BUYING YET ANOTHER SETUP IN HOPE FOR BETTER INTERNET.. HIGH SPEED AND BETTER VIDEO QUALITY (IF SKYPE STARTS THAT IS) WHEN CONTACTED CUSTOMER ZAINS CUSTOMER CARE, THEY TOLD ME TO CHANGE MY BLACKBERRY HANDSET AND MACBOOK PRO WHICH I HAD RECENTLY PURCHASED. I DONT THINK SO-!!! SO THE LAST ON THE LIST THAT I HAVENT TRIED YET IS STC NOW CAN SOMEONE (STC USER) HONESTLY SUGGEST ME HOW THEIR SERVICE IS? ARE THEY SCUMS LIKE THE REST OR DO THEY DELIVER WHAT THEY PROMISE.. FAST INTERNET N ALL? I NEED THOSE USB MODEMS SO I CAN HAVE WIRELESS INTERNET WHERE EVER I GO (NOT THAT I GO ANYWHERE) BUT STILL THE FREEDOM TO MOVE AROUND WITH MY LAPTOP WITHIN MY CITY TO USE PRIMARILY FOR SKYPE VIDEO CHATTING (HIGH QUALITY PLZ) AND TO WATCH YOUTUBE. (WITH ZAIN USB I COULDNT EVEN OPEN THE PAGE.. ) SIGH.. HELP HELP HELP!.. IF I DONT GET A GOOD INTERNET CONNECTION THEN I HAVE TO END UP USING MINIMUM SR500 DAILY FOR INTERNATIONAL CALLS. AND I HAVE DONE THAT FOR NEARLY 10 MONTHS. AM ALMOST BANKRUPT. (WELL NOT QUITE. BUT STILL I AM TIRED OF SPENDING MONEY ON CALLS WHEN OTHERS AROUND ME ARE USING SKYPE TO CALL AND SEE FOR FREE) SIGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Like or Dislike: [Reply]

8. bert September 9, 2009 at 4:12 pm im living in jubail. i have called 907 last sept. 2. the agent told me that my appointment with technician will be on sept. 5. im glad someone called me but when i met the person he told me hes only setting up dsl to the computer. he even asked me if theres already a technician came. i told him nobody came yet. so the other day, i called 907 again to follow up my application and they told me on sept. 8 would be another appointment but its frustrating that nobody even called me that day. This morning, a technician called me and asking whats the problem. i told him, ive got already a phone number but still no installation of wires / phones and setting up a dsl to my laptop its very frustrating about STCs services its a week since my first call of application and until now i dont get any installation. i might go to mobily for there broadband connection this weekend i will update you if they will connect my stcs dsl Hot debate.

STC isnt bad at all. STC is better than any other ISP. STC is fast. you know why? Because every ISP here in the Kingdom gets connection from them or at least they are paying STC for the lines. Anyway, what sucks about STC is their customer service. it takes forever to get someone to pickup the phone and you are not sure if your need will be taken cared of. Hot debate. What do you think?

This should solve the problem. If you are not using a cordless telephone the suggestion by badabingbadaboom should help.

well best way is to change wireless channel for your modem try channel # 6 as it is usually the strongest one or channel 13. normally in closed area like home it covers 20 to 30 meters and in open area should cover above 50 meter easily. give it a try and see Like or Dislike: [Reply] Reply

My question is where will i get the WEP key. i checked the net it says its written on the router but i tried but to no avail. Any have an idea about this? i tried to call 907 as usual losy service. I went to the stc office the guy cant understand my problem. Please help me. THANK YOU. Like or Dislike: [Reply]

A network key is the same as your wireless password. you can retrieve your network key on other machines just go to that wireless connection properties on that other machine then go to the security tab. then there will be an option to show characters. then it will reveal it.

I have the same problem.I have not yet found the solution.I also have Sagem fast 2804 .It might be the router because my friend has the same connection as I do (STC 4mbps) but his router is different :Huawei HG520S.In his case the messagenot support Ip fragments does NOT come. It also gives the SPEED on ps3 after passing NAT 2.The difference is apparent when he plays Fifa 10 online on ps3 with almost no lag while mine lags like hell.And both have 4mbps STC connections.How sad is that. I have looked all over the net but cannot find a solution.It irritates me as the reason I got 4mbps was so that I could play Fifa online smoothly.So if you have found any way to solve this please do let me know and ill try vice versa.

38. aquaredman December 19, 2009 at 9:51 am STC AFAQ SHAMEL EXPERIENCE. Day 1.Nov 15. I called 907 from our company gate to apply a STC 4mbps Afaq Shamil DSL line. The customer service is very friendly he take IQAMA no. and for a few minutes he gave me my phone number : 01499xxxx and he said within 72 hrs a STC technician will call me. Day 4. Nov 18, after 72 hrs of working time. no STC technician called me. I called 907 hotline to follow up my application, He again said to me that they have some technical problem in our area applied internet service will most probably fixed by next week. Day 14. Nov 29 I follow up again my application, again he said after the holiday(Eid) will surely installed my connection. Day 30. Dec 13. I received a txt message from Afaqshamel and said my Tel number is 01499xxxxx Username: xxxxxxxxxxxxx@4092afaqe2.comxxxxxxx Password : xxxxxxxx Day 32. Dec 15. Again I received a txt from STC date date of Installation andthe technician who will install my connection. Day 33 Dec 16. 7:30pm STC Technician came he check my phone line status from the STC box outside the gate. Then he gave me only the modem. He only check the dial tone of the line and finished. HE DID NOT INSTALLED THE CONNECTION LINE. Day 34.Dec 17 I go to batha buy telephone wire cable (200m) about 60 Riyal. Day 35. Dec 18. After installing wire cables, and phone checking I directly installed the fashness installation CD on my laptop. But no to avail, a very big problem after installing the STC software in my deck. An error occurred showing use only supplied cable in the unit. What seems to be the problem? The DSL line signal is blinking. It should be stable. No Internet connectivity signal in the modem. I acess to the the url address 192.168.1.1 for model 2006. I access the router using user-user username/psswrd only status checking but I cannot configure it. I call STC hotline 907 and followed voice instruction, they txt me the user/password and the configuration but again no to avail This STC company

sucks! Very poor service. To much expensive service cost. Until now I dont have an Internet connection. Can somebody answer my question here? How can I synchronize my DSL signal to my router? And How I configure it by my self? Like or Dislike: [Reply]

You really have a big problem.It must be the STC that should install your connection at the very first start of your subscription.How could u connect the cable from the box outside and set-up the connection on your PC when u dont know all the settings there, right?Lucky for me because the guy who installed my connection really came back after he check my box then set-up the connection on my laptop.But still, my connection got down already twice.Good for me because it was working fine up to now.

39. billgertz December 19, 2009 at 2:36 pm Afaq Shamel is having DNS failures recently. ive notice that skype is logging in, yahoo messenger is logging in but not the websites that i usually visit likef facebook and others are sites and keeps on getting error 404 or it takes sometime to pull them up. anyway, i searched for the solution and i found out that you can change the DNS server on your Afaq Shamel modem. Use this one as your primary DNS: 4.2.2.2 and 8.8.8.8 as your secondary. anyhow, I want to know if portforwarding and Buying a static IP for residential accounts is possible for Afaw Shamel. Sad to say but, STC Tech support really sucks and most of the time they only have average knowledge about DSL. I hope someone here can answer my question. Like or Dislike: [Reply]

well yes you can use portforwarding in afaqshamel modem. that doesnt mean you need static ip from them and for your information they only provide to company account @ the cost of 1 IP = SR 100. there is another way out. go to Dyndns.com and register an account with them. you will be able to ge free DDNS from there which you will configure on your modem. what it will do is every time your modem reconnects to internet it will asign new ip and that dynamic ip will update with your Dyndns Account. after that you can use portforwarding, remote desktop or what ever. now i will come to the irritating part. one Afaqshamel Modem 006 there is a problem. when you configure the settings it works perfect but whenever it restart, DDNS doesnt work. i checked setting also to see if configration changed or missing but all ok in it. i tried with other (linksys, 3com) modem and it works gr8 only problem with stc modem. i called them alot for there help on it as i know this is a problem in there firmware but no one there that much technical who can understand my point. so give it a try on your modem and see what u find later.

i do not understand this area on the modem. Select the service name, and enter the server IP address and click Save/Apply to forward IP packets for this service to the specified server. NOTE: The Internal Port End cannot be changed. It is the same as External Port End normally and will be the same as the Internal Port Start or External Port End if either one is modified.

it seems that you r new to portforwarding issue. let me be very simple. portforwarding with the help of DDNS is a uniqe way to connect two or more then two different dynamic networks behind routers. like i use ip Camera at my home for monitoring from my office. portforward is a secure way to connect using different ports. for example i need to connect to my IP camera with DDNS, i will asign external port 3000 and 500 as internal port to connect from router to camera.. technically http://name.dyndns.org:3000. not that i configured my ip Camera to listen on port 500 from internal network. also note that u cant not use port 80 as it is asigned for browsing..

I have a DVR in LAN, and want to access it outside i.e on internet. I know that it can be done using port forwarding and my AfaqShamel does support it. I see it under Advanced settings -> Advance setup -> NAT -> port triggering -> Add now i dont understand what port numbers to add. moreover, dont i need to add the ip address of my DVR in these router settings? After all the required settings, what url should i use to access DVR on internet. Any kind of help will be appreciated. Thanks and regards aamer Like or Dislike: [Reply]

Dear friends, I think u guys are using version 006 sagem version adsl modem. in this modem there is a bug with Upnp feature. so just login the router and go to advanced setup in that click lan. in that there is one check box named Enbale Upnp. Just Uncheck that box and save and reboot modem. then the DSL works normally. try it and reply meNo need to buy any SIP. Like or Dislike: [Reply] Reply
