Trying to work through a problem with Helpdesk on a problem with our phone disconnections, that has been ongoing for several months.
When the technician asked Telecom for a line test, they informed him that we were on an unsupported exchange.
In Upper Hutt city  ????
Can anyone enlighten me as to what they are getting at please.  I'm curious

Generally means you're on a Nokia DSLAM, which their analysis tools don't run on.

Sorry: I don't quite get that.
To my mind, the exchange is the box down the street, which telecom service and from and which up until February we had a landline from.
My line obligations began at the front gate
From there, the only difference is a router and a modem. Both Linklsys, both new.  Where does Nokia fit in?

Nokia DSLAM is the thing in the exchange your linksys router talks to.

mentalinc hit the nail on the head.  The Nokia (or Alcatel in most cases now) is the piece of equipment that's installed inside the exchange.  Telecom's line analysis tools don't run on Nokia DSLAMs, which is why the Xnet tech wasn't able to get tests run for your line :).

Thanks folk, am getting the drift of it now.  So how then, should there be a " fault " in the line between the exchange and the home causing the problem, do we discover and eliminate it.   The broadband is good, but the phone on Fusion is non existant now, and both the router and the modem have been replaced.

Hello Darcy,

I can see that the disconnection have stopped after one of the Techs here requested TElecom place a noise profile on your port. Are the phone issues still continuing now that the DSL connection is stable ?
