RunningMan:

 

SDossett: [snip] The main reason for my concern that the issue will not be one on site is that a friend of mine suffered from a similar fault at the same time and fixed it by changing from Spark to another service provider.

 

 

These sorts of issues are almost exclusively physical wiring issues (be it your property, or a Chorus line). Changing providers doesn't resolve these issues normally. Spark are also generally very responsive to helping resolve these sorts of problems.

 

 

Mised catching this bit.

 

 

 

More than likely the change of providers was pure coincidence rather than causation.

 

change of modem, cables, heck even just a move of the modem could also contribute.

 

 

 

Changing providers will often cause profiles to reset.

 

 

 

 

 

Little fact;

 

Typically disconnection faults last for about 3 days and self restore without anything being fixed. #ddDLM.

SDossett:

 

I have spoken to the helpdesk 4 to 5 times. 

The most recent time I contacted them the customer service rep remoted into the router to have a look at it and he stated he made some changes but the issues returned almost immediately.

 

 

 

 

Right ok, Please pass me details, i'll dig for ya.

To my "untrained" eye the leviton board is bridging the green pair from the vdsl filter to 5 different outlets.

I've just looked at this thread and was thinking exactly the same thing.

 

Can't see where the blue voice output is going to.

i got as far as what looked like a DC barrel joining to a punchdown before i decided not to trace wires.

It's a little confusing to actually understand how such a setup was wired initially. I can assume it was just a single incoming phone line bridged to ~16 different outlets around the house?

Yep, something looks weird with the wiring.




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?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

Annnnd I couldn't help but tracing it - The xDSL end of the master filter is indeed going to 16 outlets. It took effort to trace and I may be incorrect.

 

@SDossett there's your problem ;) where are you based?

Last year the tech notes he fixed the splitter.

I've taken that as he actually disconnected that monterious mess...
Regardless I'm monitoring... 90+mbit peaks if it is bridged that much is impressive.

now that i'm looking at the graphs,  the taps are very clear still.

 

 

 

Looks like US1 is taking random nosedives.

 

Ironically in my test period it dropped once. :/

If chorus are responsible for the filter wiring then they should have to correct it for free.

my apologies for the delay on this one.

 

 

 

port had become faulty - It's pretty hard to track these ones down at times.

 

It's been replaced and is now looking alot better.
