Our central heating isn't even turned on at the moment.. I don't have anything else set to do anything at that time.. looking at my router stats things seem to get slow as the noise margin gets to 5.7 and below then eventually the ppp connection fails. but the router stays in sync which I guess prevents the router from droping down the sync speed and connecting with a better noise margin..
I'm at the halesowen exchange.

on my previous connection I noticed that noise margin goes down when the weather is rainy so things can only get worse from here, as it's been sunny all week here..

Perhaps the BT lines to your home are getting waterlogged at some point?

Perhaps.. My 2 meg connection with plusnet with a DG834G before this was nice and stable would have uptimes of days. The Noise margin did get really low at times but the system remained stable. The DG834GT carn't be that different?

Annie and others,
My noise margin jumps around all over the stop at the moment from 5.6 to 6.4 does not stay the same is that the same on your machines?

5.3 now just did speed test @ www.speedtest.net got 3268 down 317 up I'm sync'd @ 4280 and 385 so not too far off. So maybe the slow downs I get are not related to the noise margin!?
The fact that we both have the same problem at 19:30 ish makes be wonder if it's something else?

I'm in the lucky situation of still having a 4Mb bluyonder cable connection sitting idle next to the Sky router so if Sky fail to rosolve this i'll move my CAT5 back over and cancel Sky. But I really would like to get Sky at 4Mb as the price is right
