Hi Guys

 

Trying to help the in-laws with their ADSL connection. They're located in rural waikato outside Tirau with a Spark ADSL connection. Whenever the power goes out their Technicolor modem takes upwards of 24 hours to reconnect. 

 

I've pulled the following Link information from the modem which I'm not sure how to interpret.

 

Are you able to advise if you'd suspect a Line or modem issue from these stats? Not a problem for me to replace the modem but if it's obvious its a line issue then I may as well start that process for them. Only two phones in the house each with filters.

Get that router swapped and see what happens. I doubt it's a bad line that takes it so long to sync.

Attenuation is high, but I guess it's just a long line.

How far out of Tirau? Feel free to message me the address and I'll look it up.




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?

Technicolor modem

This sounds ancient.

Looks like a 582n.

Not a bad modem as far as failures over time goes.

Also is quite typically a solid modem for rural bridge usage in my experience.

It's biggest downfall is the WiFi and its NAT table.


I disagree with the others. I suspect your line isn't so healthy.

Happy to whack a line test on it and come back to you with a informed answer though

As suspected, there is more to the story...

 

 

 

It's actually re-syncing insanely after powercuts (nearing almost once a min which is also aligning with how long it takes to actually establish a dsl session)

 

Line itself isnt very clean. Running more indepth tests now :)

I would also recommend a router replacement regardless of anything any other issues that may be going on.
