Hi,

I am with IHUG on the Glenfield exchange (09-444) and i would like to find out if the exchange and my line is ADSL2 capable but cannot find any info on this.

Anyone got any idea(s) about this?

I have the IHUG Broadband 3 plan but I get nowhere near 7.5Mbps.
Depending on the time of day, I get speedtest results varying between 1.6 and 4.2.

Hi Jim, if you go into the setup web page of the router and rumage around you should find a ADSL/WAN status page that will tell you what mode the router is in, also it will tell you other important details like the connected line rate, and line attenuation and S/N.

If you have a D-Link router then it may be limited as to what speed it can acheive even if in ADSL2, there is supposed to be a firmware fix for this.

On the ADSL Config page MODULATION is set as ADSL2+(Multimode)

I see from the Telecom page that full ADSL2 switchover should be completed in February.

Thanks for the info guys.

If the status page is showing DSL2+ as the modem, then its likely connecting as DSL2+ already, except your line conditions prevent a dramatic speed increase.

Line conditions appear similar to mine, I went from syncing at 8 mbps to between 10.5 and 11.2 (using Belkin F5D9630) once adsl2+ profile was enabled. Linksys AM300 syncs at 9.8, Netgear DG834G at 7.5 (TI chipset).

I can get better, but here are my sync rates.

Luckily I get throughput to roughly match.

I have 15444 down and 807 up in this temprorary residence.
My throughput is a consistent 12500 Mbps even at busy times, I'm enjoying it while I have it as I'm leaving Auckland again. (3 years is TOO long!)
I'm leaving this connection active with a server plumbed up though.

Looks similar to my exchange - while the equipment has been installed it has yet to be fully implemented - switch over in Feb 2008

Banana?

You lucky lucky.

I'm in Napier - I'd say the wait for 2+ will be substantial...

Zone 1 (major centres) is due for completion in April. I'd guess that they will start rolling out zone 2 pretty soon after that.

I have a ADSL2+ compatible router and it's settings can be easily changed to G.DMT or into multi-modem etc.
However I doubt Telecom's DSLAM's and RIM equipment is going to allow ADSL2+ (24,000Kbps) and lucky enough if Telecom gives ADSL2 (12,000Kbps). Even then other ISP's will still prob not get there own DSLAM's to support independance for years, sucks when your port can not get reset by an ISP unless it goes through Telecom.

Though Orcon & Slingshot are trialling Naked DSL & Ihug apparently are trialling in Ponsonby some independant equipment, a good planned infrastructure for those outside of Ponsonby is years away I believe.

Looking here, that there's a good quality connection for the lead-in from PIT, (cable gauge) and the exchange isn't far away still ADSL2+ is a pipe dream in reality if we're talking about Telecom NZ.

What are you talking about? ADSL2+ has already started being rolled out, if you read the wholesale documents found on the Telecom website. A few people (including myself) have noticed the change to DSL2+

As for ADSL2+ connections... my modem is stating:
Line State Connected
Modulation ADSL_2plus
Annex Mode Annex A
Max Tx Power -38 dBm/Hz


Not such a pipe dream indeed.

As I stated that ADSL2 is being rolled out as trials in certain area's, basing off attenuation rates ADSL2 seems possible for some people here, but getting ADSL2+ (24meg) here well I'll believe it when I see it - that's when Telecom saying anything like faster speeds, it's well overdue.

I wonder if the splitting of cable as used in heavy suburbian dense areas and apartments, like peer gain method will be fixed to allow ADSL2+.
