Hi there,

A family person of mine lives in LowerHutt/Belmont, near the highway and is currently having lot's of disconections from the internet in general, but mostly from Skype or MSN which we use a lot to communicate through Microphone.

They are using wireless connection, with TELECOM as provider.

What do you suggest the problem might be?

or has anyone else had same problems in that area? Should I consider a different provider?

Thanks a lot.

The speed of their connection is pretty good it's just that they are getting kicked out frequently.

There are 2 computers in the house, one desk and one laptop. The laptop is connected wireless to the modem that is based on the desk computer.

I need to know if other people have had problems with TELECOM in that area when it comes to SKYPE, MSN or internet in general, so I know if I have to ask aspecialist to go and check their modem.

Have you tried an isolation test?   It could be that you have a faulty filter somewhere in the house.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Will ask them to check the filters first and then if still the same will contact some telecom specialist.
