That would put it somewhere above Sulawesi:
Things could be worse - if I was one of their New Zealand customers.
Presumably, I'd need to have a clear view of the Tasman (and hope the
waves don't get too high). I guess it's a miracle the thing works at
all, so far East of the satellite.
Tinkering with the ipstar modem, I discovered that the configuration
page doesn't work in Firefox. This tag from the page source probably
gives a clue to the reason: <meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft
FrontPage 4.0">. Funny thing is, it doesn't work reliably in IE 6 or 7
