Set the "enable bitswap" option in the config for DLink DSL-320B-Z1 modems

Surely it's a really really bad thing this not being ticked? Am I wrong? (And might as well set the SRA option too just in case your service does support it.)

Customer adds note in log in clueless

If customers could add a comment record in the clueless log for a particular line, then that could be a reminder of the time a particular action was taken or an explanation which could benefit AA tech support. Example: "modem taken offline -...

Filter / rate limiting on line down / up events in clueless

Something went nutty a while ago and I got something like 50 emails containing down / up notifications back-to-back. Perhaps some filter with configurable parameters and sensible defaults to protect you. Sending hundreds of tweets / SMS / emails...

We do rate limit SMSs, and maybe Texts too, emails may not be rate limited on purpose though. That said, we are building a new notification system which should have more features, some info here: http://www.revk.uk/2017/03/keeping-customer-informed.html

Commission a new super modem

Commission the development of an extremely high-spec ADSL and VDSL2 modem, perhaps banding together with other ISPs eg through ISPA. Then you could exert some control over quality and have your ideal spec, and get bugs fixed in a timely fashion.

Don't collapse items on status page

The IRC bot posts links to status items like http://status.aaisp.net.uk/apost.cgi?incident=803 but when you open this single item you have style="display: none;" in the div. Since I've requested to view ONE item and only that one item, what...

Allow people ordering BE lines to choose PPPoE or PPPoA

Unlike BT lines, where the end user can choose whether to do PPPoE or PPPoA on the line, BE lines can only do one or the other and currently all lines are ordered for PPPoA unless you know to ask for the order to be provided as PPPoE. Doubtless...

Easier email alias management

It's painful to make changes to several aliases. Just being able to edit the whole lot in a multi-line text field would make a huge difference.

change the targets for a VOIP number depending on the active profile

Instead of just having a single profile that specifies when a set of targets are active and a backup number for when the profile isn't active I would like to be able to set a different set of targets for two (or more) profiles. For example, I...

Have more ICMP ECHO targets 81.187.81.188, .189, .190 (etc)

For multi-WAN operation with failover, some firewall software (notably pfSense 2.0.1) needs to be able to ping a different IPs for each WAN link. This is particularly true where each upstream WAN link has the same next-hop IP (81.187.81.187)....

Failover to voiceless if sip registration fails

Automatically raise a fault within A & A when there is sustained dripping blood in clueless. Thresholds to be determined, hopefully variable.

Excess bandwidth trading

Proof-read documentation before issue.

Have documentation, specifically the FB2900 User Manual, checked by someone with a good grasp of English, not just technical know-how. Poor spelling/typos in documentation creates the impression of poor quality in the device.

Additional event logging for VoIP

Use an IPv6 router

have the option for C&W backhaul on A&A

place a monthly cap on my SIP trunk bill, for a number of reasons, but primarily to limit my financial risk in the event of a hack, without having to monitor it carefully.

Allow an account holder to set a hard cap on the monthly bill at which point the service cuts off, for SIP accounts.

register an AAISP PSTN number to a third party SIP server.

It would be useful if there was scope to register to a third party SIP server for each pstn number I rent from AA. Inbound calls could ring the usual list of targets AA allow. I wouldn't need to route out via this but that would be cool too :)...

Make (?) wiki links on clueless open in a new window

Clicking a blue (?) wiki help link in clueless loads it in the same window, potentially losing the authenticated clueless session (eg closing the wiki page when done). Can these links be made to open in a new window (target="_blank") please?

VoIP only ADSL

Interesting idea... This would also be good for sites that do low level monitoring of equipment etc. Generally, with using ADSL/FTTC for VoIP, we'd suggest having multiple lines. We'll give it some thought.

review ttl on dns A / AAAA records for some servers

Some servers' DNS TTLs are very very short and the ipv4 ttls don't match the ipv6 ones. If this is a rotation load-balancing scheme then my apologies. But if not I think the numbers should all be reviewed just in case, and if at all possible ttls...
