I have a Dynalink RTA 1025w, And just wondering if there is a way I can get it to sync in reach extended adsl2
as the setting is there in the router, when I untick all other modes and reboot it wont connect. Being quite far out from the exchange with 57.0DB Line attenuation I would think it would be good to test. ISP is Xtra.

Not all exchanges have RE-ADSL enabled; I think Whenuipai is one of these odd ones out. You could try contacting Telecom and ask if there are any reach extend line cards you can be shifted onto - this may require a bit of effort on your part finding someone who knows what you are talking about though.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Yeah, good luck with the Telecom CSRs.

Agreed.

Make sure they don't put you through to Manila :D

You might need to get them to esacalate a Ticket for you to the Provisioning team.

Make sure they update your account memo with what you want to do and also to put it in any orders that they do. Not sure if it's a 123 Blended/Broadband rep that can do that sort of order but I do recall there was when for Misc. Broadband work when I was at Telecom (ie I can remeber doing one in ICMS :D)

Did ya have Telecom look at this? Did you actually get the router locked into this mode?
You won't find a huge increase in sync speed, and your upstream often will drop off too. What you should find though is more stable, less packet loss etc, so effectively is faster.

Yes I spoke to someone from advanced technical support, who tried a number of profiles, but no better. He also put me on hold and checked other neighbours speeds from the same side of the street all of them with a sync of 400-1000kbps. Im sitting on 800kbps at the moment with a lowered noise margin of 7.4db

I have another customer on same exchange as you, a little further away on Brougham Place. He gets around 200-300 Kbps, so you are doing OK.
I think this whole area is very oversubscribed on the fringe of ADSL reachable distance. This pulls all those sync speeds down on these long lines. I think the lines must also run through several (non-DSL) cabinets on the way. This effects sync too.

Wow 200-300 kbps that is really rough!

lets hope the new cabnet fitted April 2010 helps!

You need to be on a certain line profile selected by the ISP for RE-ADSL2 to be enabled. You won't be able to force connect with it when the profile is set to the standard one.
