Hello I'm on the Versova exchange and I've been facing low bandwidth problems over the dates mentioned above.... I've tried connecting and disconnecting lots of time but the bandwidth just doesn't improve. Is anyone else facing this problem??RegardsChew

I use OpenDNS Servers
208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220


I've tried both bridge and PPPoE connections.... sometimes the Bride connections work but mostly not.

Cheers

I was experiencing slow speeds 3 days ago, strangely my net wont work with 203.94.243.70 DNS server and worked so slowly with 203.94.227.70. Hard to believe that 203.94.227.70 gives latency speed of around 300. Then i switched to Spectranet's dns servers 203.122.63.152, 203.122.63.154. I have used spectranet for 3 yrs and never had problem with dns servers. I think its better then open dns servers because i can ping them @ 40 ms whereas open dns server takes around 300ms.

Don't know 300ms is horrible :eek: !! Actually 203.94.227.70 is giving ping in range of 20-25 in my connection while not to depend totally on Mtnl Dns Servers :p i changed alternate to 4.2.2.1 as suggested in this forum. However now checking spectranet ping i myself changed alternate on to spectranet still primary one is always with Mtnl. Anyway Thanks for it :) !!

Nope! I am in delhi only. And Can't say why there is a substantial diff in pings in same network just diff Dslams(this could be the point i think). However On thing i Know With Mtnl anything could happen :p

OK now this is getting really irritating. The speeds haven't improved much and the MTNL people are not much help. I checked pinging different sites like bbc.co.uk and yahoo.com and out of 10 replies I get one request timed out (not always 10 replies but thats the average). I checked the modem on my office connection. It's fine. SNR Margin 14 12 dB Line Attenuation 50 31 dB Data Rate 256 256 kbps These are my line settings. I just can't figure out what the problem is. I thought it was a windows virus so I booted up Ubuntu and the same things happen there too. I removed my switch and connected the comp directly to my modem but no change. Any help with this would be nice.CheersChew

I think I got it figured outI did an isolation test. Unplugged everything but the modem from the all the telephone sockets in the house. Everything seems back up at the moment. Will keep updating as time goes on. If anyone else has this problem I suggest you try the isolation test.CheersChew
