Hi everyone:

I am wondering if I could get some advice from some of the experts out there.

I am a Snap Naked DSL customer, and I live in Churton Park, Wellington.  According to, the cabinet to which I am connected to (Churton Park has always been connected via cabinets, but it was on ADSL1 and not ADSL2+) has now been upgraded to ADSL2+, but my modem is still syncing up at ADSL1 (G.DMT).  I am around 100-150 meters from the cabinet so I get very good speeds, and would expect the ADSL2+ connection to be able to achieve speeds of approx 18Mbps downstream.  However, the challenge, as I said, is that I am only still being synced at ADSL1.

I am using a Linksys WAG310G, running firmware 1.00.03(100701-1727)-AU, and have my DSL Modulation set as "Multimode".  I tried forcing it for ADSL2+ but the connection wouldn't not train and sync up at all.  I also tried a TG585 Modem which was loaned to me and it still comes up as ADSL1.

Does anyone has any ideas what could be wrong here?   Is there anything that I can do go ensure I get sync up at ADSL2+?

are there any neighbors you can check to see what speed they are getting, it may be you are still on ASDL 1.

Common sense is not as common as you think.

vexxxboy: are there any neighbors you can check to see what speed they are getting, it may be you are still on ASDL 1.

Well yeah I have checked with one of my neighbors and he is indeed on ADSL2+ already, so I am stumped as to why I still on ADSL1. 

Will perhaps talk to a few more and see how they get on.
