Gday, I am about to install a master splitter, I have no phone lines connected, am on naked broadband. I am about 550m from the cabinet.
I will be putting a master splitter in on Sat along with new CAT cable to the modem. I have a Linksys WAG200G.

Below are my results, why is is so slow/should I be getting better speeds?


Thanks for you feedback!

Welcome to Geekzone.

The cable from your local cabinet might be a lot longer than 550 metres.

I am not rural. I live in Massey, Auckland.
installerUFB checked my address and told me where I am probably connected to.

Does it matter that my Modulation Mode is Multimode?

If you are with telecom I can run a test. But a speed of 7mb with such a low attenuation looks rather fishy.

Sorry I am with Vodafone, but they don't have VDSL and clam up when you ask them about it, so I am going to change as they don't seem to care about keeping customers.
Could Vodafone lock me onto ADSL1?

Why would you need a master splitter if you are on Naked BB and nothing else connected to the Telephone jack points in the house?

Isolate all the other Telephone jack points from the master Telephone jack point

What exchange / cabinet do you think you are connected to?

7547 kbps interleaved
your problem is there's a bug in your modem firmware (TI chipsets, the WAG200G is one of them, also affects some D-Link DSL-xxxT/Netgear DG834v that are commonly used in NZ) that is limiting your speed.

Either check for new firmware versions or as the bug only appears on interleaved connections, disable interleaving.

If this is correct then trying another modem should be done

I am doing a master filter because the forums talk about looking at your wiring before doing anything else. I went to the demarc and traced the cable to the first jack point. I disconnected every other line.
I was going to run CAT cable from the filter and have everything new.

I was told I was probably on the cabinet at 46 Royal Road.
If I was further away, I would expect my attenuation to be higher.

Yep, dump the modem, get something proper. As for the filter, if your naked and the inbound cable connects directly to just the one socket, then no filter is required, however I would normally recommend one if the house is rented or soon to be sold and future users have a "more consistent" arrangement with less hassle.

Cheers for that.
I currently have a WAG200G, what do you recommend. I'm not too flush with $$ at the moment but appreciated I need to spend some money.

I've checked his address and he is connected to MSY/G (Which is a FFTN)

For A Chorus provided VDSL install - A xDSL Master Spliter instalation and Cat5E/Cat6 cable (actualy now a hybrid cable -Cat5e + 2 Fibre) is mandatory to be installed by the installer at the time of installation.  Existing installed cables such as  2pr Homelan or 3 pr twisted 6way can be used if the installation of new cables are not possible due to building construction issues.
