Have just shifted house last sat, and the new place
is near a adsl2 exchange so i am now on adsl2.

the last house i was at only had adsl1 and had av speeds of
downstream: 6000kb
upstream: 650kb

now the new house with adsl2 has
downstream: 800kb on speednet and 2000kb on telecom
upstream: 200-400kb

now that's just whack so i rang telecom and they did a line check
and told me speeds are:
downstream: 6000kb
upstream: 950kb
(and these are good speeds)

now i asked if the reason for slow speeds is coz the house is kinda old
so the wiring may be old but they said nupp it should be algood.

i have filters on every phone jack in use and have a thompson tg585v7
(same modem that i was using at the other place with same config).

Now i play online gaming via xbox 360, and my old adsl1 connection was
awesome and i could host and give aussies and kiwis (not all but alot anyway)
full bar and i could also get full bar, but now after moving house my connection
sucks! i get a bad 3 bar connection and can't even get full off hosts that have
like 2000kb up (on cabel).

anyone got any ideas, this is really frustrating?

1. posting in multiple places will only get you a warning.

2. post connection rates and attenuation etc from your router/modem

The rules are clear folks: *** NO DUPLICATED THREADS ***. It won't help you posting more than once, annoys all your fellows users and reduces the chances of getting good help/feedback.

Post followup in the duplicated post.
