Ok, I've heard about ADSL2 and I've just recently upgraded our ADSL modem to a brand new ADSL2 one  (Linksys WAG200G).  But the line speeds I'm getting are not that much better than the old modem.  Have I done something wrong or is ADSL2 not here yet.

You are on a DSL connection not DSL2, The connection stats show a DSL profile.

You won't see anything like 24mbs anyway, with a adsl1 sync of 5mbs. I suppose joe bloggs could say its false advertising, but this is excused because its a technical limitation, and its outlined in the terms and conditions of all isp's anyway.

here is the adsl2 info http://telecomwholesale.co.nz/adsltwoplus
there are pdf links on the page that show which exchanges have been upgraded. I would be interested to know if anyone has a list of when future upgrades are going to take place as I cant find any - only found whats been done so far at that website

Here is a graph that compares your speeds and can tell you what to expect when going from adsl1 to adsl2

I have estimated that using google earth, and my current adsl1 speed (napiers not upgraded yet), i would get between 16 and 18mbps on adsl2. I also found another local exchange down the road i didnt know about so this could change for me.

Hey OVLD,

I am also on the BD exchange and have been told by Telecom Xtra that I AM on ADSL2+ running the same specs pretty much as you on my Linksys WAG200G.

Area: Birkenhead
ISP: Xtra

DSL Status:Connected
DSL Modulation Mode:ADSL2+
DSL Path Mode:Interleaved
Downstream Rate:4386 kbps
Upstream Rate:729 kbps
Downstream Margin:13 db

Downstream Line Attenuation:43 db
Upstream Line Attenuation:13 db
Downstream Transmit Power:12 db
Upstream Transmit Power:21 db

What in this tells one of your responsees that it is NOT ADSL2+?

Cheers
