    Default Vodafone ADSL issues tonight? 28/06/10

    I've now had 4 people contact me in varying parts of Auckland with ADSL connectivity issues, all centering around regular & frequent disconnections from Vodafone.

    I'm too tired to ring, but thought I'd see if anybody else was having these issues. I know of two people in Te Atatu, somebody in Mt Roskill, so it's not just a single place that's got the fault.

    ..that is, if you can get online to see this post and respond

    I had two disconnections this morning from vodafone, although a friendly call from a vodafone mod is helping me fix my other network issues

    Hmmm, I haven't had any at all. Vodafone wholesale or Red Network?

    I was having problems last night as well. Sites would load a small chunk & stop, reloading them didn't always work. It wasn't disconnecting me from the net, just bandwidth was intermittent.
    Seemed ok this morning though.

    Chill, I have frequent disconnections and have been for well over 12 months. I rung Vodafone(Ihug) on several occasions but generally don't get anywhere with them. Disconnections seem endemic Just had another 5 mins ago and another as I wrote this!!

    If I were you smurf, I'd be ringing up the Helpdesk and doing something about it. Turns out all the issues were totally unrelated, but a very interesting coincidence:
    One wasn't actually with Vodafone and just needed to restart their router
    One has home wiring issues that seem to have been getting progressively worse
    One had a faulty filter
    One had an overheating modem

    Funny ...

    Thanks Chill and nedkelly. Yep will persevere with Vodafone. Ned...I don't think it is overheating, it happens anytime day or night and has been happening for well over a year now.Sometimes it drops and then reconnects itself without intervention from me. On other occasions I unplug the modem/router and wait for 20secs and plug it back in and away we go
