Where do I start....
I have had problems with my connection on both telecom and now on XNet - and have just worked around the problem and basically learnt to live with it....however I was hoping a number of users may have come across a similar issue and have a simple solution for me.
I play online games - (there I have confessed) and therefore the speed of my connection and Ping are very important. I have had a problem with my connection where at random (maybe 5 times an hour) i will get randomly disconnected from the server - basically the ADSL light will pop off and then after 5-10 secs switch straight back on again and work as intended. This isn't an issue when surfing etc, but is very frustrating during gaming as I will get dropped off etc.
So what I did was change the modulation type to ITU G.992.2 and this fixes the problem - I have no disconnections and everything runs smoothly - the catch....it runs slower with worse pings. Everytime i switch back to ADSL2/2+ or multimode the same problem occurs. While I could keep on living with the slower speeds I was wondering if anyone else had solved this issue?
I use and own a lovely D-Link DSL-G604T - I hear some of you chuckle already....and I connect via ethernet
I use the Whenuapai Exchange (which I believe is ASDL2+ enabled) and am located about 1.5km from that exchange.
Any help on the above would be fantastic as if this could be solved I would be a very happy man.
