tanivula: It might not 100% solve the issue, especially going through your details, but have you thought of trying a UPS?  We've got a HG556a and it's been rock solid ever since we got a UPS, similar line stats, also with snap, and use all the programs you've listed except via wireless - no LAN clients.   Main reason I got the UPS was because of VoIP but I think it also filters out a fair bit of the harmonics and cylinder switching stuff the network companies inject into the lines as I can recall we would have daily drop outs around 3 - think due to power line carrier (hot water circuit switching).

Might not solve your problems, but it's worth a shot I reckon, plus you'll end up with a UPS Cool


A UPS would be more expensive that the fritz box wouldn't it?

Change to VDSL and get the Fritzbox deal?




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

coffeebaron: Change to VDSL and get the Fritzbox deal?


Wouldn't that mean signing up for two years?  and if it doesn't fix the problem? maybe it is snap?

blackjack17:
C0R3: What version firmware do you have on the HG556a?


V100R001C12B028


Older firmware but issues with it are mostly related to wireless, Current is 37 although there are 2 versions of it.

How much did your TV cost? I am going to guess a lot more than $400.

Internet is obviously important to you and yet you don't want to spend anything on it. This doesn't make sense. The FritzBox is an outstanding router and probably the best router out at the moment for the home environment. Are you happy with the calling rates you pay o mobile? 4c/min for national calls on VoIP.

Again, if you don't want to get the best all-in-one available at the moment get yourself a Draytek Vigor 120 and bridge it to any old router. It is a really solid modem and is around $100... or is that a bit dear for just a modem?

vexxxboy: Fritzbox is fantastic never drops out, my record is 6 weeks of connection before i stopped it to reset it


Is six weeks meant to be good? That sounds average at best to me. My old Linksys 54 something router runs for many many months at a time. It's not doing ADSL, just routing, DHCP, that sort of thing.
