Related to a post I raised yesterday, after doing isolation tests on the jack points around the house I have 1 point that can get a reliable adsl connection. The rest are hit and miss. Among those points that cannot get a connection is the point that has the phone which works fine.
Also I thought the modem/router plugged directly into the point with no filter which is how it's been setup last couple weeks. Now it only connects if the filter is on as well. Strange.

On the points that don't connect I can still log into the modem and see connection stats - downstream and upstream link rate look fine as does line attenuation but the noise margin on the downstream hovers between 0 or a negative number. On the upstream it sits at 12db.

Anyone have any idea what is wrong here?

Do you know if you have a master filter installed?

Probably in the ETP - little box on the outside of your house where the line comes into the house.  Does the jackpoint that works have a sticker or label on it that says modem or anything like that?

Out of curiosity I checked the chorus map and we can get vdsl, would that upset the adsl?

unless you get a second line, its either ADSL or VDSL

depending on your ISP when you get VDSL they should come and install a master filter and a dedicated jack point for your modem for you.

That is not the master filter, just the jack-point (which will feed off the master filter from the ETP)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Phone jacks are so cheap. You can buy a kit including a punch down kit which is colour coded to show which wire goes where. I bought a couple from Mitre 10 myself. It gives you a good chance to examine the wiring as well.

In my case it wasn't too hard to pull through new cabling using the old cabling so I put in some nice new cat 5e as well.

Ick. Old 3 wire stuff.

Call your ISP, upgrade to VDSL and they will send a tech to sort the wiring out with a splitter and new socket for you and you will have better speeds too.
