We had VDSL activated a couple of months ago.

 

We found we had problems where the internet would go down every so often (didn't seem to be a pattern) but restarting the router (Huawei HG659b) seemed to fix this.

 

I presumed it was due to too much load and the router overheating (others seemed to complain about this online).

 

I bought a new router/modem (Asus DSL-n66u) and we are still having problems.

 

Stats below (Huawei):

 

 

 

 

We don't have a master filter, but don't have a landline (I believe technically from other reading on the form that on the Naked package we have a landline with a bar installed) so I've connected the phone cable direct to the wall (I also tried previously with an ADSL filter - no impact). I also tried a couple of different phone points - moving from the one in our office to the one in the hall gives us an extra few mb on the sync speed so my guess is we have cr*p internal wiring.

 

In case anyone suggests it, we did try and get fibre direct but we rent as part of a 3 unit development and (once we got our landlord to agree) one of the other units refused permission (as Chorus have such a bad rep).

 

Any suggestions on what to do? I'm thinking a master filter may help. We're in mission bay, Auckland.

How often does this disconnect a day?

 

 

 

If it is as bad as you suggest, surprised it has not flagged in my system yet - Or maybe it has and we haven't picked up yet.

 

 

 

I'd gladly look at this from a usecase situation, PM me the line number and contact details and i'll see what i can do for ya.

 

You also indicate CRC errors, in what direction?

You've got good downstream attenuation and sync rate, but poor upload. This is a symptom of reflections on the line causes by line stubs.

 

Master filter is likely to make a significant improvement.

 

EDIT: Take up @hio77's offer and flick him a PM...

Hi guys



Thanks for the speedy replies. There are at least 3 other jack points in the apartment so that stacks up. Hio I'll drop you a PM now.


Oh and the CRCs occur when the connection drops. On the asus router it'll show DSL, connect and then cycle CRCs until it disconnects. CRCs showing downstream but only when the connection isn't working.


Cheers

Charlie

Tell them Chorus would start cutting the copper in the next few years and see if that persuades them. :P

as above..

 

 

 

Per the topic however, OP has been in contact, i'm looking after the copper line itself now.

 

 

 

no resolution at this point, Detailed tests do need to be ran for more data.

My internet is currently dropping off completely every half hour or so. Having to turn the modem off and on again. Not fun.

 

It's been sh*te for the last week or so. Chorus doing some work up the road - got the red netting on the side of the road and digging etc.

 

Screwing up our internet yell

 

Going to ring up tomorrow and complain.

Can understand the frustration there, I personally in this instance would first query for known faults or outages within the area.

 

Can't speak much for frontline, as they do have a procedure to cover however there is nothing stopping them from skipping that step if your confident in that you have done this before calling.

 

 

 

Unfortunately if chorus are working in the area, could be related to a fault.

 

 

 

That's about all i can do from here though as realistically there were not any further details to follow up on in your comments.

As predicted, Signs of bridgetap on the line indeed!

 

 

 

Disconnects however, None on my testing sadly, I have DM'd the OP with further details...

Thanks hio.

I don't have enough drops to suggest a line issue.

It looks like a master filter might improve reliability and speeds though.

Am I right that coffeebaron would be the man to speak to for this?

Any suggestions for getting in contact bar PM (which I sent over)?

I'm sure he's just busy but if there's a better way then I'll try it!
