Change the DSL Modulation type to G.dmt

Yes I am a employee of WxC (My Profile) ... but I do have my own opinions as well Wink

DESELECT: Connect on demand.

Downstream line attenuation of 45 db indicates over 3 km from exchange. Next step is to have Telecom change the DSLAM port and wire pair between exchange and your house.

It involves being extremely persistent to the level 2 fault finding people. Just tell them what you have told us. I would have also eliminated any potential problems with house wiring. If you have a splitter installed (dedicated ADSL outlet) then there should be no issue there.

I use more than just slingshot's dns server as sometimes, it would go down. Don't know if they fixed that.

Your post was great with very useful infomation.

Have you thought of posting it to the admins will say log the fault if it's a serious issue and get a job number regarding the problem.  There was a post on geekzone about dial the chines helpdesk as there is no wait and there english is good, if you are logging a fault.

I have found the service I'm getting is great for the last month and a bit. currently my cap has run out and im still getting a good 'surfable' 64k connection, good pings (100-70ms)
