I've been trying to troubleshoot dropouts and slow downs here for months. I recently upgraded my connection to 100mbps, fat lot of good that did. I'm still using my original v1 HG658 modem supplied by TPG. I note these aren't even supported or supplied any more and like most people this has obviously just degraded over the years. Don't you keep records of who you sent these old modems to and upgrade them every once in a while? Your competitors do. What's the life on these things?
