Ok at home i have an alarm that always messes with broadband when it is connected.

Is this because there is no filter on the line to the alarm ?

In any case I am looking for a modem that will automatically reconnect after a disconnection or on a regular basis like every 4-5 hours discconnect and reconnect to the net.

Any help appreciated :P

If its a monitored alarm then its usually highly recommended to get a central filter installed.

Most routers/modems have the option to keep the connection "alive".

What router/modem areyou using at the moment ?

Get a central splitter installed - the alarm will be your problem.

Most routers be default will auto reconnect, the alarm will be causing a very unstable connection and needs to be filtered.




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?

So with a central splitter how does that work and how can i make sure it doesnt affect the lines required for data like the adsl modem ?

A tech would come out to your place and install an ADSL master splitter at the incoming line.
They would then dedicate one of your existing phone jacks as a broadband only connection or add another phone jack for this if required.
Once this is done you don't need the filters on all your phones, faxes, Sky box etc.
