Hi Guys,
I have just changed plans and decided to try Orcon's Home Hub Modem Router. Can I expect improved speeds over my current Dynalink 1335 modem router? What are the benefits?

Regards
BazNZ

On ADSL 1, I have 4.5M on Telecom UBS. On ADSL2+ on Telecom UBS with the Orcon home hub, I got 11Mbps. Now on Orcon UCLL with the Home hub, I get 18Mbps. Upload has always consistently sync'd at 1Mbps, but Telecom rate limits this to 166k.

So I had a REALLY positive experience when using the Orcon home hub on Orcon DSLAM's.

Just don't try and use the file, print and web server features. Constant crashing and it drained 1/2 of my ink when it got stuck in a printing loop.

From my experience, I can tell you one thing, the HomeHub syncs higher than any dlink modem.
It also doesnt disconnect like the dlinks do, it seems to handle high noise levels on the line much better.
