On Thursday 31st March, I called the helpdesk, and they ran a 24hr analysis on the line and agreed that there had been lots of disconnections (over 100 from memory). I rushed down to Palmerston North to try a different ADSL modem (late) Friday, and Xnet started another 24hr analyser, and was told to call back on Sunday to see what to do then. On Saturday evening, I recieved an email from Xnet stating:
"Your fault has been investigated and we have received an update from the Telecom wholesale faults department.
Hopefully your fault is now resolved however if you are continuing to experience problems please call us on 0800 14 9638."
Indeed, when I plugged my WAG54GP2v2 back in on Sunday morning, everything seemed just fine. Calls went through, and we could talk as long as we liked...
I didn't end up calling the helpdesk back, because it seemed all was resolved.
The following Friday (8th April) my sister called me. We stated to talk, and a few seconds into the call, it was cut off...
She went away for the weekend, so we didn't try and do anything about it then. However, we have not been able to get a phone call through today, and while on facebook chat this evening she has been constantly dropping off.
Now I will be calling the helpdesk tomorrow morning (when it's not so busy), but was wondering if there's anything else that can be done?
NOTE: While the account is mine (I lived that that house for several years), my sister is the person currently using the phone and internet there. and She Is Not Amused (understandably).
