Yep, it's terrible.

The only site that work properly for me is https://www.telstraclear.co.nz/ 

Well, anything on the same network is fine.

edit: and now it's fixed...

Sorry - could not reply at home because almost nothing was working - including geekzone sometimes. Stuff seemed to work ok, but slowly, and google was non responsive, as were tomshardware And others.

I too am also having problems with vodafone internet, it seems surfing national sites like trademe etc is fine, but google for example was taking ages to search for anything, and my games - well lets not go there!

spazza344 oh so you are not sure if you are on the cable (HFC) network or not? Sorry lost in translation

Looking from the diagram I would say ' Yes '

spazza344, John can be a bit 'short' with people at times, but hey, he's an engineer not a customer services rep.  Please be assured that his valuable input on geekzone far out ways any minor communication issues ;)

Yes that's a compliment John :)

I'm also having issues with Vodafone warpspeed for the last two weeks (updated from lightspeed a couple of months ago).

Basically it just stops regularly, sometime OK and sometimes very bad. Local sites a better than overseas ones but even http://wellington.speedtest.telstraclear.co.nz/ freezes at times.

I've spent hours on the phone with a call centre person doing all the common sense things that someone who has spent many years managing and designing data networks would normally do. I understand how a help desk works but having to repeat the fault over and over (yes same fault number) after waiting for 30 minutes is destroying my will to live.

I've also had to come home from work a few times, to over hear the tech on the phone saying I think we have another one of these cable connections that's having problems.

I would welcome an abrupt, opinionated but knowledgeable real Tech to shed some light on the problem, it's becoming ridiculous as another day passes and the Internet radio keeps cutting off, flaky VPN to work means I can't work from home, 2 hours to book accommodation on expedia.

High speed maybe (yes I get 125Mb down and 9Mb up when it works), but reliable no. Can I just go back to the old connection and modem but with the increased data plan?????

A very very frustrated punter....

Lost all access at 6:00 pm tonight on Kapiti Cable.
Had ping times to 8.8.8.8 that were up to of 1581ms

When I finally got through to technical assistance 4hrs later, due to overloaded queues on the help desk.

They reset the cable modem.
Then we hooked the PC direct to the cable modem and fixed the DNS settings to
Had to reset my DNS in the router to the telstraclear dns settings that are in the sticky at the top.
