where the hell do i find these things ? is there any other connectors that i could use instead ? or should i stick with the ones chorus use ?

 

 

 

 

Jaycar have them: https://www.jaycar.co.nz/crimp-wire-connectors-2-3-wire-pk-8/p/HP1214

 

If you have the tools to do cat 5/5e/6 termination then I recommend doing a run from the ETP to a wall plate.

 

 

 

 

Old credit cards a very effective punch down tool and you can get 2 way 3M Scotchlocks from JA Russell. 
Make sure you call them squishies otherwise the guys at the wholesaler wont have any idea what your on about haha.

VDSL speeds seem to jump up about 5mbit recently after being fairly static for 10 months. Unclear as to why but im not complaining.

 

 

 

I currently have a CAT5e cable running from the demarc point straight into the modem, would cat 6 make any improvements?

Wow. That is a very good VDSL speed on attenuation of 12db. You must have pretty clean line end to end.

Got bored so changed the cable to CAT6 , dropped the line attenuation down 1db

Owhango is enough for me, i'll do a few checks and get back to commenting on this, Wondering if its involved in a trial that is in the "could potentially affect VDSL lines list"

I would love for my vdsl speed to jump by 5 megabit.

I cant easily get them from the draytek because the stupid unifi USG doesnt request a DHCP address from it to manage it, only does the PPPoE when set for that. But its about 13 down on a good day - no change when I got rid of the other connection despite chorus blaming crap speeds on other vdsl connections on the same lead in.

 

Ill change the USG over to DHCP when my downloads are done and grab the stats later tonight if I remember.

Yep, based on the ADSL trials i've seen possibly be better for you - DLM offers a 6dB profile!!

 

 

 

My second line affects my VDSL connection by like 0.5dB.

 

 

 

When i was running Dual ADSL it was more like 2dB, i dropped the SNR one of them to get a faster download speed + affect from other line dropped to sub 1dB SNR..

so i haven't actually posted my current lines here in awhile.

 

 

 

 

The ADSL line alongside this has an active fault on it which is due to be resolved, DLM-2 is due to a powercut sadly..
