Bad Impression of connect.
My Connect was activated on the 26th, my router was sent to me a few days in advance so i had that all set up waiting for the adsl to hit my line.
From the very begining ive had various connection or speed drops ive had my my pc hooked up through the network cables and my mums hooked up through wireless.
At one point my download speeds through utorrent was 350k down and 40k up which id be more than happy with but alas this lasted for all of 30 mins before it begin dropping again and ive never seen that performace since.
Ive Tried various things suggested on the site Disabling UpNP disabling firewalls and move the router to the master phone socket but none of which have had any affect.
Ive read a few posts talking about settling down periods, will these problems sort themselves out?
ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 4288 kbps 448 kbps
Line Attenuation 44.0 db 24.5 db
Noise Margin 5.8 db 22.0 db
Any help you could offer would be appreciated im just hoping when i leave again in the next few months ive not left my parents with a duffer of a net connection.

On a Connect package, it can take up to 14 days before your connection settles down, this is a characteristic of ADSL Max I am afraid.

This is your thread now, keep us informed.
On ADSL Max there is a BRAS profile, which basically maxes your line out to see what the most stable connection your line can support. this means that your connection will drop and resync often for 10 days or so.
Mine went through and it was 3.2mb. I accepted this and then changed my master socket. It then went up to 6.4mb and I have never looked back.

Welcome to the site AGrant
One thing you need to do is not turn the router off for the first 10 days if thats what you have been doing as you will have to start the whole process over again.Ray
Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.
If you would like to know the straight line distance to your exchange then
Would you like an idea of the possible speeds you will get with the Max Package then click here or for the Connect Package then click here

Ive been unplugging the router when theres been no net for like 20 mins, then reconnecting, would that affect it?

Yes and no
Go into your router and turn off the upnp and see if that helps
Will get you into the router, you should see the option once in there.

I turned that off right at the begining. Im starting to think its more of a router problem now because if the net does go down its not like the begining where it would reconnect after a a miniute or so. No it wont go back up again till the routers reset or the adsl is unplugged, i can still get into the router page and it says that i have a dns and ip address, and if i do try to load up a web page it doesnt say right away that theres no net connection it just tries to load the page but nothing happens.
