The modem has a very wide text bitgraph, how would you like me to post it?
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?

solorvox: No difference with NZ vs AU firmware, it appears they were the same.
I don't know if this matters, but I noticed the 2Wire is running G.DMT2+ Annex A and the DV120 was running ADSL2+(G.992.5).
I've got under the house and inspected the cables. The jack in the wall is five months old, along with new CAT5e running 3m down to the twisted black copper pair. That is run direct to the dmark. However, that pair looks much older, thick black insulation with no numbers. The house is 30-35 years old.
There is only one other jack in the house and it has a filter on it. But I've tried without anything pugged into it.
Can you force G.dmt (ADSL1) on the Draytek? It may be that it is preferring 2+, but given your particular line conditions that G.dmt would be better.
RunningMan: What are you trying to achieve with the Draytek? Can you not use the AM300 if it syncs better?
RunningMan: It sounds like you've ruled out the modem as being a factor in the original problem.
You're likely to get a benefit (on any modem) from sorting the internal wiring, but it looks like that's out of your control ;-). On problematic lines, some chipsets are just going to be better, and it looks like the TI in your case.
What about leaving the Draytek in place for the short term for testing (presumably the underlying issue can be addressed before too long), then swap back to the AM300?. Still a good market for the Drayteks if you decide to onsell...
Worth starting another thread to look at the original issue?
RunningMan: If you've got another box that's doing all the hard work, then all you need is something basic and reliable in bridge mode - I'd stick with the AM300 or even an RTA1320...
