It's weird as I am still getting issues with internet being dropped recently and this is very frustrating !!. From what I can from the this forum section and which I experienced too, there was a drop of internet connection 2012-12-11 but is anyone still getting internet disconnections after that 11th?.
I have no clue what to do when the internet drops other than just sit and wait for it to come back online.

Btw, Im in Auckland

Post the line stats, sync and attenuation. What you think doesn't fix the fault and won't be correct.

When I was with telecom, I found the supplied modem kept wanting to re-authenticate with my username and password and repeated correct attempts at inputting this wouldnt work and the modem just simply reconnected after a few minutes itself. Checking out the modem settings (logging into the modem), I found it had lost the username and password and wouldnt save it for some reason.

Have you taken a peek at the modem settings?
Any firmware updates needed?

You're line speed vs your attenuation seems to me that you're pretty close to the exchange, but the line quality isn't good.

Are you sure you're wiring in your house is ok?

I would ring up the helpdesk and see if they can run a line test.

If you PM me or email me pl at telecom dot co dot nz with your phone number, I can get a line test run and report back.

What do you mean by if my wiring in the house is okay? are you talking about the filters, phone lines, cat 5 cables?

He means the quality of physical cabling inside your walls. The line could be fine up to the point it enters the house but a common problem if you're having broadband problems is that the wiring inside the house isn't very good.

Have you got a master filter installed?

I'm fairly confident you don't have a master filter installed, as you're getting some dropout and are about half the distance to your cabinet as I am at home, but we're getting approximately the same line speed.

This is what my home line looks like with a master filter installed, and I live about 1.8KM away from the exchange and get ~14mb sync:h



And my SNR is flatline across all frequency ranges.



Whereas your line has a lot of variance at the lower tone levels... indicating there is a fair amount of noise on your line...

Master filter... and that will solve your problem.  If you would like me to email your stats to you, i'm happy to do that.  Just send me an email and I will email them back to you.h
