I think the cross talk idea above sounds like a good one.
I understand that interference can affect the speed of the line etc, but all I want is for someone to tweak my settings so I don't have to reboot the router EVERY DAY!

AS I understand it, Sky can set your target SNR at a higher level. This may result in a speed drop, but should in theory give a more stable connection. You should rule out any environmental factors that you can improve first though.

It is not uncommon for SNR to drop in the evenibg. This is thought to be caused by more Internet activity and more interference from additional lighting and other electical activity at night. Try moving any mains leads away from data cables, in particular the RJ11 lead between router and filter. Also try to improve your SNR by troubleshooting your internal wiring.Service recovery 02392 899292
You got 3 right!
D'oh! Not good, dude.

It's connected to the main socket I have an ADSL face plate.
I'm going to try just using the test socket and a better RJ11 cable there are no power cables near the router expect for the routers power.
I found my router not connected again this morning, the ppp connection was down put the router was still sync'd up..

Does your connection ever get to the point where it's not connected? and you have to reboot the router? or does it just re-sync at a slower speed?

You ready for the countdown...730pm approaching

I have the stats page open already inanother tab my SNR has dropped from 7.1db earlier to 5.8db ATM but was 5.4 at 6pm
I'm thinking of asking Sky to drop me down to the BASE package as I'm not benifiting from MAX at the moment
I've checked out dslzone and with a att of 51db I should be getting 4-8Mb even with a SNR of 6db
My SNR has dropped to 5.4db whilst typing this
