scottjpalmer: Have any of you tried the HomeHub?
My DrayTek was dropping every day or so, sometimes more frequently, and I suspected the DrayTek was faulty. Swapped to the HomeHub and it is a huge improvement.
Sure it's $5 / month but when Orcon do more good stuff it'll be ready to take it.
Was the Draytek working OK before you changed to Orcon?
From other threads, I understand that Orcon tend to push their DSL settings to get high sync speeds, possibly at the cost of reliability. My sync speed on an ADSL 2+ exchange went from 5 kb/s to 7 kb/s when I was changed to the Orcon+ network. I'm not convinced that providing a higher speed service at the expense of reliability is a good move, especially from my experience. If you do need a HomeHub to get a decent connection with Orcon, then maybe they should be upfront about it and include it in their plans?
