At a friends briefly for tonight and their ADSL keep dropping out randomly...

 

Sync rate seems fine which make me thing that the connection is fine... only the modem connected no other voice devices or alarm etc.

 

Does anyone see anything wrong with the connection stats below?

That's reporting around 2km of cable, is that what you expect, if not check your house wiring.

Depending on the uptime, that's a fairly significant amount of errors - usually points to a wiring issue.

Error rates look high, Low upstream is generally a sign of poor internal wiring too.

Thank-you all for your inputs - 2km probably be correct as semi rural Helensville. As been fine up until a week ago. Only three jackpoints I can see and nothing connected. It is naked and they are using a filter so will buy a standard BT line cable and try it without a filter.

My friend reports some Chorus activity around a box at the end of the road at the same time the fault started happening. They were there for about a week so at a guess there was something major going on and whatever was done has affected his connection.

They have called Spark and have been told they need a new modem - which I doubt will remedy

Also isolate all the other Telephone jack points from the jack point the modem is plugged into
