I Think you should ring your ISP because it could be the connecting from your house to the exchange.

Also are you connecting via Wireless or Ethernet?

That's strange,

Telstra are normally pretty good with customer service.Although i havent had good experiences with telstra internet though.My grandparents have dialup (Ugh slow LOL) and there meant to be getting 56kbps but they only get 44kbps,and on dialup that makes a lot of difference.

Telstra gave us hell to get our internet in it took nearly 4 months to get our internet installed

just asking would my router be dodgy (SBG900 motorola)

the friend who i spoke of earlier has just had it all unplugged and put back in (parents)
now his net is worse than mine(lol) would mine being plugged in and out have problems?

should i reset modem (login to modem and press reset not unplug it)?
