Help people,

 

I feel I am hitting my head ageist a brick wall. as I recently upgraded my internet from ADSL to VDSL as it was slow, now I'm having the problem where I have next to no internet. 

 

I have tried putting another working modem here and still the same thing, I have tried the ethanet cable, still same thing. I would much rather have slow internet then no internet.

 

I have requested to go back on ADSL but nope not aloud to.

 

 

 

grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. ova it aye.

When did you get it installed? We had issue that started on Thursday morning with slingshot fibre dropping and reconnecting every 5 seconds. It was fixed yesterday afternoon by a change on their end.
Could be the same thing as ours was really slow/not working.

Maybe start by looking at Chorus map and determining if you are in a VDSL area, https://www.chorus.co.nz/broadband-options/for-business/broadband-map

 

Then post the attenuation and sync figures from the modem.

 According to that page Im in a area that can get fibre. Am also in a VDSL area. just want to change to ADSL where I had no trouble. I got changed on Wednesday by my choice and have had nothing but trouble. Spoken to 6 people at Slingshot, reconfigured the modem restarted my computer, mobiles, xbox 360, tablet and the modem. Using the yellow ethanet cable, still nothing. In the time i have been writting this it has disconnected 3 times. Over it. im not paying $94 for nothing.

Advise the modem and I'll read the manual for you.

 

EDIT: If Slingshot won't switch you back to ADSL (would incur a fee with Chorus) then cancel service (may incur a fee for breaking the contract).

Not quite sure how a capture of above helps us other than indicates that you are connecting via wireless. Please explain and advise, hopefully with the relevant numbers from the modem.
