      Question ADSL Question

      Hi, sorry if this has already been answered

      At night when the noise level rises and the adsl stops working is it possible (other than mossywells excellent utility) to get the router to automatically recalibrate itself ?? Is it just sky's firmware that doesn't do this or if I had a different provider where I could use another router would I still have the same problems when the noise level increases ???

      Just need some advise from those in the know !!! It is driving my other half nuts when it drops, keep telling her we should keep router switched on at all times to get best noise free rate but she doesn't like leaving things switched on overnight, sigh, back to square one tomorrow !!!

      TIA

      Neil

      ADSL2 and + should automatically adapt itself to changing line conditions using a protocol called SRS (Seamless Rate Adaptation). Unfortunately, in common with many (all?) other ISPs, Sky have not successfully implemented this feature - yet.

      In the meantime there is no automatic method available other than Mossywell's utility (not the same in any way as SRA but serving the same purpose in the use you describe).

      Whilst I admire your wife's green aims, the router is designed to be left on and consumes about the same amount of power as a nightlight.

      That what I thought, but trying to explain it to her is the problem , used to have NTL which never had any problems like this, but thats a cable connection !!

      Not green aims, more like anti read and orange (worries it will set fire to the place !!!
