We're using a Genius Black router, which was working well on our old connection in Hamilton. I was happily getting a 15mbit connection with this router.
Connection stats pretty poor, as below:
- Data Rate:
The best I have seen the router connect at is 9000kbps down, and we are getting frequent disconnects, 64 in the last 4 days. 20 of these are probably from me moving things around and changing router settings, but its certainly too high.
Current Speed test, from speedtest.orcon.net.nz:
Download Speed: 3972 kbps (496.5 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 351 kbps (43.9 KB/sec transfer rate)
Latency: 190 ms

I just tried playing a bit of Heroes & Generals, that was a waste of time (massive rubber banding)
General web browsing is horribly slow.
The router is connected to the master Jack, no other devices connected, infact I have disconnected the rest of the jack points. The house wiring looks to be about 20 years old, so could potentially be issues. We don't have a splitter installed.
When the Chorus tech did the install, I got him to do a quick line test and he thought the numbers looked as good as to be expected, since we are going right back to the exchange.
Will Orcon switch me to a normal cabinet connection?
And if not, can I expect better from my LLU?
