A little background. I recently moved into a new house(my brothers house). When i moved in there was already a telecom lanline/broadband plan at the address.
It was always pretty slow and would loose connection frequently -but it wasent my connection (it was a flatmates who was leaving) so it didnt bother me to much and i just put up with it and figured id move to a better ISP (orcon hopefully) when able to.
While i was with telecom and we had a home phone (lanline) it was always VERY crackly and noisey, the phone was basically unuseable. ( i never did try another phone, and instead just unplugged it as i never used it anyway, and figured it was a dodgy phone) SILLY ME! (I did have line filters installed)
so now fast forward a month and im signed up to Orcons purple + full speed/full speed naked adsl2+ plan.
I get the new connection up and running, and its still having problems, dropping/disconnecting frequently and slow speeds. I do some googling and start researching spliiters etc thinking perhaps the other phone jacks in my house were causing excess "noise" or perhaps bad/old wiring. Nothing else was plugged into any phone jack. no alarm, no sky, no phones, no fax, nothing.
Still no joy after checking all phone jacks to make sure nothings plugged in.
Next step i get an electrition to disconnect all other phonejacks throughout the house and install a CAT5E mega cable straight from the incoming point on the house straight to a new RJ45 wall socket.
My internet is still sloowwww!
Next step i think it must be my modem, so i call orcon and request that they send me one of their "orcon home hubs" This arrived a few days later.
Still very slow but at least seems stable now and dosent drop me continually.
So this is as far as iv got...im getting a bit worried, pretty much 100% sure now thats its not a fault of mine and is related to something not on my premesis which has me worried.
What should i do!?
Below are some speedtests and info i got off my modem. (dosent make any difference if i use firefox or internet explorer)
I am based in howick, (cherry road, off bucklands beach road)
What should i do! please help!
