Hi,

I have an old Telecom package and am looking for some upgrade advice.

'Total home lite', 30GB, $85/month. Located in Auckland.

Telecom supplied router TG585v8 with software 8.2.7.7

Cat5 cabling throughout house. House alarm is looped in also.

Speed test done through http://www.speedtest.net/ gave download of 4.75mbps and upload of 0.76mbps.

Interestingly enough, it didn't matter whether I used wireless or cable, multiple items connected or 1, or 1m extension cable or 10m. They all had approximately the same result.

After coming back from Oz and having 15.0mbps available, I would like to know what's the best Telecom upgrade for me?

I'm not 100% clued up on Telecoms packages and speed limitations, as their website doesn't make this clear.

Any help would be much appreciated.
Ian

ianvd: Thanks plambrechtsen,

First thing first, I'll run the router straight off the incoming street cable and work out the speed difference .


I've emailed you some of the details out of the network monitor I am running on your line.

In short, as everyone else has already said.  You're going to need a master filter.




I work for Spark, but as always my views are my own.
