Just got my vdsl connection today, getting worse than ADSL results, rang help desk, they said they will monitor new connections for 10 days, but I am a bit skeptical about it, can anyone please shed some light on this?

That's likely to be your problem. Power cycling the modem multiple times will make the automatic monitoring think that you have a very unreliable line (after all, the connection keeps dropping!). It therefore goes into a "fail-safe mode" where it's using reliable - but slow - parameters. Keep the modem turned on constantly for ten days; the system will gradually increase the speed again if there are no dropouts.

variable: So my upload is affecting ack packets it seems, any Orcon guys here to help me configure QoS on their modem(white one) please? I haven't done it before.




ill say it again, you cant simply expect QoS to magically fix everything.




Saturation is saturation, mitigation is possible but it will always have an affect on you.
