I am using a Dreytek Vigor130 and when I use the STD firmware I get much better upload speeds, they jumped from about 2000 to the current at about 5000 after a week or so on the STD over the modem4 firmware, I see now they are enabling vectoring on a lot of exchanges so I'd benefit from modem4 firmware but I'm scared to flash back to modem4 incase it slows my upload right back down.

 

Is there a way to find out if my exchange supports vectoring yet, I'm in Lumsden, Rural southland.

Your cabinet is not enabled for Vectoring.

 

 

 

Currently Chorus are only running Vectoring in 2 exchange areas.

 

They also are only running vectoring (gains atleast) on Downstream.

So is it best I just stay on standard firmware and not the vectoring firmware, as I do get better speeds on upload with the std, only problem is if they enable vectoring on my cabinet and i don't know it I may be missing out on any performance increase

You may find the speed bump was coincidental.

 

 

 

Different modems will sync differently, Particularly with upstream there is typically a more broad range depending on chipset vs dslam

 

Different software implementations can adjust this slightly.

 

 

 

IMO, your speed boost, I'd leave it be for now.

 

When i see more dslams go live (with the actual enabling not just the upgraded card) i'll be sure to let you all know.

i still need to get around to running some stats that i was going to post awhile back to vectoring.

 

 

 

Didn't feel it was fair to comment on lines when ddDLM was settling with the changes of Vectoring though.

I fiddled the other day flashing on the gvector firmware to my vigor130 to see if it would make a difference to my line speed, i rebooted the modem a couple of times in the process and then left it 2 days, the speed wasn't better so i flashed back the std firmware, now overnight last night DLM has decided to slow me right down after being at my other speed for a couple of years, is it likely to go back to normal or do i need to contact my isp and get them to do a port reset or anything? 

 

I'm a bit annoyed as I never really had fast speed so now i'm even slower!
