Connection with Netopia Cayman 3347w is very slow and becoming unbearable
Explaining an opinion on DSL's speed doesnt help fix a problem. Not to mention the fact that DSL is on a digital subsciber line, your own phone number, not the neighbors, you have it backwards, its cable that can have its speed impaired if all your neighbors go on.
Anyway, I am an expert with netopias. I trouble shoot them all day long on people's DSL connections. The symtopms that MacWyb is describing sounds like he has degregation of service that needs to be fixed by maintenance. They can do whats called a rip and rebuild, where they take off the virtual circuit and virtual path (vp and vc) and then build it right back, this clears this type of problem up quite often. It would also be a loose wire at the D-mark, the gray box on the side of your house, thats happened to me twice now. Or, It could be you're on a redback that has too many customers assigned to it, maintenance, if this is the case, would have to move your circuit, assign it to antoher redback, or brass router, whatever they're on.
In anycase, It means a call in to technical support with your ISP. They will create a trouble ticket to look at it for you.
This is all taking for granted you dont have a buzz on your phone (which would make it a telco issue, a call to your local phone company to fix the line), and that you have all your DSL filters installed on every phone in the house, including fax machines, etc.
