A tech would still need to be despatched to do jumpering, I imagine. Nothing would happen tomorrow, and given you've only logged it today, Tuesday isn't that bad, really...

vdsl to adsl will be a profile change.

Glad to hear you got the full story from the techs. I'm still not convinced its a 'vdsl' problem - look at the providers in uk that use vdsl as adsl profiles sinply so they can vector.

I’m so confused. I don’t understand this stuff well enough.
Now that my VDSL seems to be inactive, my modem had a stable connection for over an hour. Change to different modem, stable VDSL connection for an hour. But no IP address and no internet traffic.
Very confusing.

And provisioning team have replied so I’m going back to adsl now I guess regardless.

Sounds like you dont have ppp configured correctly on that modem

Gah maybe! Have been connecting via pppoe from my router for last couple years. All my modems(!) have been reset to factor settings. I’m pretty sure I’ve got it right but I’m losing the will to live now

What are the VDSL stats when it is synced?




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 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.

coffeebaron: What are the VDSL stats when it is synced?




Current status: very stressed out about this whole thing. Have now managed to fark up my router and will have to reset to factory defaults to access it thus losing all my settings

VDSL status: power light - solid green, dsl light - solid green, Internet light - constant blinking. New spark modem.

So VDSL has now been connected for over 7 hours without resyncing. I can’t believe it. To be clear, Internet is not working, but the fault I’ve had for 11 days is no longer occurring.
What on earth is happening?

Given the location i'm surprised it's not vectored.


 


Something seems weird about your line.


I'm seeing it at 65db snr, with an attainable of over 200mbit..... this is certainly the dslam missreporting and looks to be possibly a flapping port.


 


Quite high FEC rates and heavily variable line stats.


Often that indicates a clear fault.


 


Drilling down into fault history, your initial fault was an area fault.


Moisture damage in cabinet, All modules were replaced - this starts me certainly thinking down the loose connection path...


Your second fault, was also linked to an area fault, a cable fault requiring digging.
For some reason this was delinked, due to being too far for vdsl - this is the sort of response i was referencing earlier on....


Third fault went through the correct escalation path, except a box was missed so it went straight to the field. as the tech is currently on site my hands are slightly tied in terms of details i can see until he stops fiddling


 


 


All in all, to me, looks like a valid fault.


Your spectrum itself has a reasonable amount of ghost past 550 tones, so VDSL profile isn't the worse.


As there is no vectoring, you get 8b which works a bit nicer at distance than 17a for upstream so that's pretty nice.


 


Given your line has peaked at close on 20mbit, It's not too bad!


i know the area well... It's my back yard.. cable faults are pretty common unfortunately :/



@hio77
I hope you may be able to look again at my line please? I have a feeling that in all the testing done yesterday the tech may have inadvertently fixed the fault. My VDSL connection has been up like 10 hours now with no disconnections, but it’s not actually connected to the internet. I don’t understand what’s happening. I hate to think that the change is going ahead to adsl and now may not be necessary.
Thanks,

Back home now, i don't often take my work machine with me when i travel.

 

 

 

 

 

I have looked at your line, Appears the PVC may have been stripped as part of the profile switching the techs did.

 

I do wonder if dropping interleavings was the magic "fix" for it to hold stable since that's the profile your sitting on.

 

 

 

once the modem is back online i can ask the assure folk to rebuild the PVC, which should get you back online.

 

i can't simply reset it, due to the open order to drop to adsl.

 

 

 

Based on the tests agents have ran for you, it is looking alot better though...

I cant really add anything else other than to say keep bothering them about it until it gets fixed. You gotta be persistent which it sounds like you are lol just try not to lose your call and stay calm and collected and they'll be more inclined to help out I know how frustrating these types of issues can be from personal experience. Could also be a good idea to keep a diary. Update it every time the issue occurs what you were doing when exactly it happened and each time you contact them with dates and times. Who you spoke with etc.

 

At my old house I dealt with so many issues on my ADSL connection. it would drop every time it rained, sometimes it would drop when the phone rang. this was between 2005-2013 I never got it fully resolved because we moved. We would have a tech come out every time it rained, they'd clean the line out and leave. The connection would be stable until the next time it rained we just gave up luckily Fibre came to that address not long after we left so whoever moved in hopefully didn't have to deal with that issue.

Thanks for your reply. Sorry for being a needy PITA.
Yesterday AM the VDSL connection reverted to its connecting:disconnecting thing, same as the previously fault.

I’ve just received the text that my connection has been switched to ADSL as requested, will see how it’s performing when I get home.

Thanks again for your help with this!

Cheers,
Joseph

Apologies are not required, It's a frustrating time i get that totally :)

 

 

 

It is looking solid from my end.

 

Your running 12db right now, so as ddDLM tweaks down i'd suspect you jump back to about 14mbit
