Hello again everyone.
So, I have been with the Post Office for a good five months now. On the whole things have been pretty good. I have no complaints really about either the service or the customer support, which for me has been first rate. There is one thing however I am having issues with and that is the supplied router.
I am on my second Zyxel router now, after the first one completely died on me, and initially I had it connected to an extension socket upstairs. The trouble is it kept disconnecting constantly. So after speaking to customer support, I had to migrate the thing downstairs into the living room and connect it to the test sockect to get a stable connection. There it has stayed for the last month and a half/two months without dropping off once.
Now apart from the fact that having the router in the living room isn't really practical, there is something that has been bothering me since I moved things around. During the interim time between the death of router number one and receiving router number two, I set up my trusty Billion Bipac 7800 upstairs to get by. For the whole time it was in use it never dropped the broadband connection once, so it came as a great disappointment to me, when I set up Zyxel router number two upstairs and it started playing up. The question I would love to know the answer to is why? Why did my Billion router work fine upstairs without issue, but the Zyxel router couldn't? Can anyone offer any theories because I just don't know.
