Just thought I'd post for those that get VDSL and run into issues with a Thomson router. I have 2 routers with me, a Thomson TG799vn that has DECT functionality for SIP services and a  Thomson TG789vn which is the non DECT version.

All running well and I was getting between 8-20mbps down, sharp tooth like retainability and also my modem disconnected evey now and then, with the modem freezing sometimes. Spoke with NZ Distrubuter for thomson and found out that if you have the profile VDSL2-DLM-5 the modem can freeze, I later found out I had VDSL2-DLM-3 and had this swapped to VDSL2-DLM-8. Since doing so I now have constant speeds between 18-20mbps down and 8mbps up (sync rate is 34mbps down, 1mb up).

I am about 350m from the cabinet using google maps, provided the cable runs under the street else 600 odd meters if it runs around the street.

So if anyone happens to have issues with VDSL, get them to try the DLM-8 profile on your connection.

Who's actually offering vdsl2 right now to the public? I thought it was still in trials. Those speeds are a little low aswell, Do you know your distance from the exchange?




Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

Sorry just edited my post, it's either 300 odd meters or 600 odd meters if it goes around the street to the cabinet.

Dont think anyone is doing it commercially yet as it has no SLA and is in soft launch with telecom still. I have a backup DSL incase my VDSL goes offline for what ever reason as telecom are not bound to fix it in any specific time frame.

they offer it as a trial correct, again if it breaks there is no SLA to fix it as its in soft launch. It also takes ages to get installed, 4 months for me as its not like ADSL where its an automated process its all manual at tcnz wholesale.

Anyone know if this is normal...

Uptime: 0 days, 0:08:27
FEC Errors (Up/Down): 393 / 393
Data Transferred (Sent/Received) [MB/MB]: 8,02 / 10,34

FEC errors on the thomson router are to do with interleaving, the amount of packets the router has had to reconstruct from what I can tell. Is this alot?

Finding that at strange times my router is losing DSL sync and then rebooting and tries to re-establish sync. It will be find for maybe 12 hrs then all of a sudden it will die, then 10 mins later die, then 20 mins later die then fine for ages.

Don't know what the problem is. :/

Yeah on both routers i've tested.

See above my output power, what's yours as mine doesnt look right at all.

Bugger. I don't think VDSL2 is available in my area yet but Hosting Direct are apparently making it available in June 2011 according to their map. I get pretty decent sync rates on ADSL2 (20mbps) anyway.

100m line of sight to the local exchage, I'd guess 150-180m line length

Power output looks a bit broken here too...

Re the FEC errors, you said it was to do with interleaving? I'm pretty sure interleaving has been turned off on our line as the latency dropped a fair bit last time the router resynced

You only need to look at the Telecom Wholesale site to see if it's available.

Good to see your output is the same as mine.

Still really mind boggled that my line is stable for most of the time, then when i havent used it for a few hours, I do some traffic and all is well for about 30 seconds then i lose sync and router reboots, reconnects and then everything is fine.

View more...

As per above, I tried to send data 6mins ago, it worked to download mail, then all of a sudden it rebooted and reconnected :/

I wonder if its something on the LAN it doesnt like, 2 different devices same firmware as you. I may try put a cisco between the lan and the router and see if it does the same thing.
