Hi all,

I wasn't quite sure what forum to put this in but as the problem has just started since I switched from Orcon to Telecom  I put it here.

Yesterday I was switched over from Orcon after 12 years to Telecom BB plan.  All went well  and was switch at 4.00PM yesterday.  Arrived home saw my 2Talk line was dead, Put in the new 1st DNS address  of and it call came on line.

However after diner my wife said she could not access the net for email or web.  I was watching iSky at the time and it was fine and the 2Talk line was OK.  I default the  Dynalink router reset the WiFi info all was well but about 30 minutes it happened again.   I pined it down to the PAP2T doing some sort of registration time of 35 minutes .  If I turned off the PAP2T over nite the internet was fine.  I changed the DNS to  the second entry of  same problem then same problem .  Tried DHCP  same issue.  Never had any problems with this on Orcon.

Is there something that Telecom's setup that does not like foreign  VOIP setups.

It's not a biggy as I will just turn it off and reroute all calls on my home PBX to the Telecom line as the only reason I got this back in 2008 was to call my daughter in Jamaica cheap (back in NaZ now) , make NZ cell fone calls  and to have a play with VOIP.. 

Any suggestions??

Thanx in advance..

Hopefully this is the final solution. It was the Dynalink router.

Many thanx Peter for your input. I got the Telecom TG582n and now I have broadband in Technicolor and stereo sound. Have just done some download stress tests on it with an international speed of between 10 ~ 13.5 Mbits with a 1.6Gig file no problems at all. Even the PAP2T now works without killing the internet every 35 minutes.

The fact that the old Dynalink seemed to have worked fine for the past 2 years on Orcon there must have been something it didn't like when switch to Telecom. Come to think of it I bought it 2 years ago for my house in Tauranga but it would not sync to the ADSL so I left the old Telecom 2Wire modem in place and used it at home.

I've still got to put in the master filter in the next week or two when I find a suitable box to put it in..

Edit: The only thing I forgot to do was reboot my TiVo to get the new gateway address.
