Hi all, just wondering if anyone else in central Auckland is experiencing a similar thing? I'm on a nakedDSL plan and my connection drops off pretty much every hour or so, all the time. i log into my router and it's either handshaking or ready to connect and i click to reconnect and i'm back in business. So thats fine, by what could be dropping my connection so regularly? It's a complete pain in the arse when i'm trying to use the phone, which for the most part is patchy on this DSL plan!

just wondering... i'm not sure i can stomach a call to their help desk, i haven't got the time or patience today!

On naked dsl, in auckland, never disconnects. More disconnects caused by vector/united network/forklift drivers over the last 6 months than the ISP or router crashing.
