So there is a speed limit due to firmware bugs in the D-Link routers that Telecom gives most of its custoemrs limiting those on adsl2.0 exchanges to around 7.5mn connections.
Documentation on their website states that a firmware upgrade can fix the problem - the problem is that there doesn't seem to be any firmware upgrades available. The D-Link website recommends that NZ custoemrs do not download firmware updates from theri website as they are specific to Australia and firmware upgrades for NZ should come from Telecom.

Does anybody know what can be done to remove this speed limit / where we can get a firmware update?

There are NZ firmware upgrades for the DSL-504T (that's what I'm using), but D-Link do not provide upgrades for the DSL-504_TX as it's using Telecom's own 'customised' firmware.

Xtra has a hidden page for the updates here: http://www.xtra.co.nz/help/0,,6156-1713086,00.html
but they only describe 'security upgrades'.

Not sure if you could use a generic NZ firmware...

So can I load the firmware from D-Link for the 504T onto my 504TX router? Do you know if it fixes the speed limit?
The firmware update on the telecom page predates the issue so I doubt that this fixes the speed limit.

I am not sure if the newer generic firmware actually resolves the restriction, although Telecom does say that a upgrade for their D-Link modems will fix it. I'm guessing that Telecom will release that upgrade when ADSL2+ goes mainstream.

As I said before, I'm not sure if it'll work properly in your router, and that I'm not sure if it will lift the restriction - I haven't got ADSL2+ yet...
