      Just thought I'd give an update on my statistics at present:-

      Noise levels have dropped on upload speed, which should increase performance on the gaming side. Ping speed not budging yet, but will post further results.

      Noise protection still set high. If the next profile it sets has lower noise protection, you should hopefully see lower ping times.

      Settings update:-

      Looking much better now 10 days are up on dlm. Noticed the re-syncing has stopped, but will my noise margin go back to skys default? Am I right in thinking it should be around 7.0dB?

      It depends on your line. It could stay where it is, or go up to about 6db, but that may reduce your connection speed.

      That is the old default, DLM uses different figures down to 3 db. If your line is stable it will stay at that, if it is not, DLM will raise the margin and this will reduce your speed.

      Re: Gaming profile, is it better?

      Hi there. Thought I'd post my settings from today:-

      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN PPPoA 539590 913299 0 144 60 12:51:47
      LAN Up 93838 74906 0 147 955 41:20:05
      WLAN Up 2902366 3735945 0 10192 0 41:19:42
      Broadband Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 10234 kbps 1090 kbps
      Line Attenuation 39.5 dB 23.3 dB
      Noise Margin 2.5 dB 7.8 dB

      I've managed to keep my router switched on without any problems. Just curious though, do sky routers reboot themselves over time, hence the times on the port status? Also gained a very slight increase in upload speed aswell

      Re: Gaming profile, is it better?

      Not sure if I should have created another thread, but basically I've noticed my router has been rebooting over the last couple of weeks. Is it to do with the new firmware that everyone is talking about? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks
