VDSL has been installed this afternoon. Apparently I have '30 megs' down which is good considering how far I am from the cabinet. However I can't configure the router as the default username (which wasn't the default) and password don't work. Can someone from VFNZ please DM me re this?

Recently upgraded to the Unlimited Ultra Fast Cable 130 plan (was on old 100gig) tech came around week later and dropped off the Netcomm NF5.
 Right so if i run my connection through this, the gigabit link keeps dropping out from the Cisco constantly and if i plug my old my N300 Tplink back in all is fine but no gigabit wan or LAN ports on that router, Only way to keep stable gigabit link is direct PC to Cisco.
Speed test speeds are also an issue, previously i had standard 100mbps lan, cisco modem and tplink and speeds were constantly around the 95mbps mark according to speedtest on old plan, changed to new plan hardware with Netcomm connected and speeds are flaky with lowest recorded 12mbps up to around 50mbps and peaking at 95, speeds are more acceptable plugging old Tplink back in on 100mbps lan.
So today i installed a gigabit lan pci card to see if it would fix things and it really made no difference at all, couple of speed tests below...

Download Speed: 98327 kbps (12290.9 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 9473 kbps (1184.1 KB/sec transfer rate)
Latency: 51 ms

1 minute later

Download Speed: 40854 kbps (5106.8 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 9264 kbps (1158 KB/sec transfer rate)
Latency: 51 ms

I'm also pretty sure that latency has near doubled.
Can anyone shed any light on this? Constant gigabit link dropouts between Cisco and Netcomm and the flaky speeds to the speed test server? thought i might break the 100mbps mark to speed test today installing Gigabit lan but no dice :( oh and my LAN cables are cat5e
So my only options are, use old tplink so i can have wifi for phone and no gigabit, or direct to pc to enable gigabit.
Hope that all makes sense :) oh and i'm located in Christchurch.

johnojr i would suspect if its consistently dropping out a fault with the modem. Have a chat with us on 0508 888 800 and get it looked at.
If you want also i can get someone to look into tomorrow and speak with you if you can give me a time window.

Cheers

Seems everything wants to work great today. I will monitor things over the next 2 days and see how it goes.

I have had cable for many many years.  Its a rock every single time.  Tonight at 7 to 8pm for the first time it slowed down. Only other time I have seen this was their free weekend we all enjoyed.

I really hope this unlimited internet offering is not to do with it. I don't use P2P but did just switch to the unlimited plan.

I dont have the unlimited plan. Im currently on the 100gb 130/10 plan and without getting into a debate about torrents I have found that since the launch of this unlimited plan my torrent speeds through bit torrent have slowed from an average 700-800kB/s to around 20-50kB/s.

Is it a coincidence or is it because of the unlimited plans that my downloads have slowed up dramatically?

modcar: I've been silently following this thread, what are peoples thoughts on unlimited cable?


You probably won't get much more feedback that way and should read through the entire thread if you haven't already, but I will say that I absolutely love my cable connection. I haven't had the slightest issue with it after having it installed for almost a month now. I get the full advertised 130/10 Mbps speeds, and it blows any ADSL/VDSL offerings right out of the water. Outside of some 200 Mbps trials in selected areas, even UFB doesn't meet Vodafone's DOCSIS cable downstream speeds. If a cable connection is available to you and you don't expect UFB anytime soon, I can definitely recommend the cable.

I've got cable already, 130/10 100gb per month.  I always worry about traffic shaping, especially after Telecoms shaping a few years ago.

The call centre hasn't helped, seems no one knows what shaping they do, or how much they will slow it by.

P2P this must of been advised soooo many times and it depends on the traffic load at the time to how it's shaped as it's not static

Do you only get $10 a month off now for linking to an On Account mobile plan or am I looking in the wrong place?
