Re: Intermittent Internet Access with Sunrise

Are you referring to fixed-line ADSL or wireless HSDPA connection?

Re: Intermittent Internet Access with Sunrise

we had sunrise at our previous place and never had a problem. since we moved in our new appartment (10 mins walking from the old one) we have big problems with our connection (especially me). i get disconnected all the time and sometimes it takes a few attempts until i am able to connect again. some times nothing else works but restarting the modem. it's quite annoying and i cannot explain why it happens much more to me than my boyfriend? hmmm..

Re: Intermittent Internet Access with Sunrise

I'm referring to the ADSL link.. my LAN stays up, and, as I said, it's nothing in my config as it's working fine during the day.. it's really annoying.. I'm just wondering if it's a 'peak demand' type of issue..

Sounds like it's a peak demand type of thing. You could have a high contention ratio where you live (lots of people using the same ADSL circut), and if you're quite far from the exchange, lots of other users could degrade the signal your getting causing the router/modem to drop the connection.

I'd have a word with sunrise about this.

Actually, cable (ex: Cablecom) is a shared medium where other users will reduce your speeds at peak times. xDSL (ex: Swisscom, Sunrise) the connection between you and the nearest switch is a dedicated bandwidth, so other users downloading won't affect your bandwidth. Altho, I agree in this case it sounds like some type of congestion, and could be that some other part of the network is underdimensioned.

I am experiencing the exact same problem on my connection. 5 calls to Sunrise support has not been fruitful.

Do you have an adsl filter (little grey plug) plugged into the telephone socket where your modem is plugged into? Do all your phone extentions have adsl filters connected? If not, incomming calls can cause the adsl to disconnect. Buy them for all telephone sockets that you have a phone plugged into.

Re: Intermittent Internet Access with Sunrise

Thanks for the responses.. it's all wired in correctly.. I'm now starting to wonder if they're throttling traffic as I'm moving quite a lot of data around .. anyone seen anything similar ?

Are you experiencing this with wireless or direct cabled connection?

Re: Intermittent Internet Access with Sunrise ( ADSL )

If you are using wifi, you may have some interference from some other device (wifi modem, wireless phone etc), try to enter into the configuration and change the channel. I had this problem and this worked to me.

cheers,

Christian

Re: Intermittent Internet Access with Sunrise ( ADSL )

In my case is a wired conection.

They've been doing constructions in the neighbourhood to install some optic fiber cables for Swisscom, could this have anything to do with it?

Re: Intermittent Internet Access with Sunrise ( ADSL )

Same thing here, but I get the disconetions over the morning and in the evening everything goes fine. I would love to know what the heck is going on, it just started a few days ago and the internet conection is lost every 2-5 minutes after rebooting the modem.
