The change appears to have been made at the exchange, my router now reports ADSL2+, 17-18Mb/s down and just over 1Mb/s up sync speeds.

I haven't had to change my router config from the WxC settings but the internet works, albeit at under 2Mb/s according to various speedtests. Is this to be expected? Will entering Orcon's VPI/VCI, encapsulation type, username and password etc improve this situation or not? Can someone please provide me with those details?

Or am I just being impatient and should sit back and wait for the transition to be fully completed and my confirmation email to arrive with answers to the above?

I have just emailed the Orcon helpdesk, but no answer can come quick enough.

Thanks for your help.

I was in the same situation as you when migrating from Xnet. Orcon use port authentication on their Home+ plans, so you dont need to make any changes to your router.

Thanks "Little", Orcon have just rung in response to my email and confirmed that.

Good work Orcon, very very prompt reply!

(Here's hoping the changes he is making to my profile now narrow the gap between sync speed and actual download speed)

Hmmm profile change made no difference, here's hoping Orcon can work their magic in some other way.

Settings FYI

Username: username@orcon.net.nz
VPI: 0
VCI: 100
Encapsulation: VC Mux

My internet stopped working for a while on the move date, and like you came back up with no configuration changes to the router.   

I then changed my router to my new username:  user@orcon.net.nz, and password - but didn't need to change any other settings...   Saved the changes, and restarted the router  (tools menu in my DLink).

After this I was connected to orcon, and it has been full speed ahead since.   see my post:  http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?ForumId=82&TopicId=28023

You're getting similar modem sync speeds to me, so I would expect you should be getting much better than 2mb on your speed tests.

- don't forget to call up and close your XNET services...   I had to hold on for 40 minutes before someone answered on their sales line, before I was passed to the customer service team - another 5 minutes holding...   painful!

Alright so Pukekohe needs more backhaul then I will get a lot closer to my 18Mb/s+ sync speed, should only have to wait a week or 2.

At least I get a consistent 1.5 or so even now in "peak" time

Have you seen a significant speed increase over WxC?

Curious to hear if it's improved.
