We upgraded to vdsl about a month ago from adsl2. We are finding a few sites are not working that we previously had no problem with, also really slow to UK sites.
Could someone on VDSL with slingshot try a couple for me and see what you get? Pretty please?
Www.zillow.com
Www.propertytalk.com
Www.9to5mac.com

There are heaps of others.

Just spoke to Slingshot and they say they have firmware problems and are now developing their own firmware as the supplier in ztaiwan is crap....so if anyone has a non slingshot router..

Thank you!
I now think it is a port issue on the router, as on Ethernet it works.

Likely MTU issues. Chorus use 1492 MTU for VDSL whereas most routers expect it to be 1500.
