freitasm: But have you tried a different router yet?


No i havnt, Havnt got the funds to buy one, and dont know where i could borrow one. I did try plugging modem straight into comp but it wouldnt work, didnt want to configure to work due to it being a mish to get back to using wireless.

You havent posted modem stats yet. That means the stats on the ADSL status page in the routers internal configuration website, specifically the downstream datarate, attenuation and noise margin (or SNR) along with any other stats you find there at the time the problem is occuring.

You mentioned you have a router AND a modem, so do you still experience the same speed if you take off the router and just plug in a single computer directly to the modem? That could at least prove out your router. Its sometimes worth borrowing another modem if that's still suspect.

To get the stats do i go to 192.168.1.1 or something?

I tried just using modem, but it wouldnt work, i guess id have to change some settings, then i'd never get it too work with wireless again........

I live not too far from Amberley, have the same issues you are having I have tried a different modem etc, spent some time on the phone with the help desk, the tech was looking at things from their end and agreed that it was painfully slow. They asked me to do speed tests at various times throughout the day which I have done and passed to them, I am awaiting the reply.

I like you are on what is meant to be full speed etc, this has been working very well for the last few months and has been very quick , however over the last month it has slowed up.

The quickest speed acheived was 6.32Mbps at 0730 am and the usual is less than 1Mbps most of the day and all night up untill about 10pm when it goes up to a staggering 1.5Mbps.

as mentioned I am awaiting their reply , not sure when that will be but will be calling them tomorrow, as its just annoying me now and I want it resolved.

Well I did as asked and recorded the speeds at various times over a few days,  sent the results to the help desk and have heard nothing. Called them on friday and to be honest the tech person was at a loss as to what to do.

Told to ring back today , which I will.

Last night the download speed was lucky to hit 200k which is about the worst its been.

I will keep you updated but I am not happy with the service and the help desk.

I'm having terrible speeds this morning, taking 5mins to load pages, and i've tried 3 dns servers, all the same result.

50% of my sites visits are instantaneous, the others hang so don't think it's specific to a dns server.

ATM it's hanging trying to d/l from cdn.geekz1.com and another server gz relies on

So I've been having the same issue on a Telstra DSL connection, speed is fine weekday mornings, grinds to a halt in the evenings and weekends. Saw this thread and thought I'd email online.marketing@teltraclear.co.nz as mentioned in a previous post.

They followed up which was good and I've just gotten off the phone with them and they said that it is caused by conjestion on our local exchange (which is pretty much what I had expected). I can get download speeds of 650KB/s + but then in the evenings it can be as slow as 20KB/s off Telstra's own Christchurch speed test site. Its so bad that even my wife is complaining TradeMe sites take ages to load, and we can forget about using YouTube.  

We're rural and only have ADSL1, and as I expected they have no plans to upgrade our exchange to ADSL2+ which I can live with as 650KB/s + is fine....but Telstra have just told me (from Telecom) that there is no plan to upgrade the exchange in any way, and basically that we're stuck with abysmal broadband. We never used to have problems and I can only assume its because more people down our road have signed up to broadband that it is now an issue.

Even though they're not upgrading our exchange to ADSL2+, surely they could solve the conjestion issue by adding more capacity to the exchange? Is it simply a backhaul issue from that exchange, or is it more complicated than that? I know our line to the exchange is fine.

I'm also guessing it would make no difference changing ISPs as they would all just be reselling the same connections?  

Update: just finished typing this post and got another call from Telstra saying that Telecom is now aware of the lack of capacity on the exchange and that they are monitoring it and will be upgrading it at some stage, but it probably won't be happeneing any time soon...sigh. Guess I should get the neighbours to all complain too!
