    It will be G.992.3 versions. Try ADSL2+ first but it won't work if your exchange hasn't been upgraded. If it doesn't connect after a few minutes , try just plain ADSL

    Mutlimode seems to be very slow, only about half (7.4 Mbps) of what I got before (old Thomson Speedtouch). Just set it to ADSL2+ (G.9923) and up it goes -- 14.49 Mbps).

    What are the differences between ADSL2+ (G.992.3) and ADSL2+ (annexM) ?

    I seem to recall that annex-m has a higher upload speed but not used in NZ anyway.

    So, ADSL2+ (G.992.5) is the best available in NZ?

    Sorry, there was a typo in my above posts - that it should be ADSL2+ (G.992.5) rather than ADSL2+(G.992.3).

    Multimode basically autoselects for you, but not always to the fastest option!

    ADSL2+(G.992.5) is your best choice, as long as your ISP and DSLAM etc support it.


    Annex M gives up to 3Mbit upstream (at a cost of some downstream speed) but NZ only supports 1Mbit up.
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.
