      Re: Yet another question about Sky Netgear DG834GT utility version 0.4

      Imagine a scenario where a customer's line is very noisy during the night but there's very little noise during the day. If they were to reboot their router during the night (i.e., when then line is at its noisiest) and it gives a noise margin of 7db, that figure might well rise to 12.5db during the day (when the line is less noisy).

      So how would Sky be able to tell whether a current noise margin value of 12.5db has been reached because the router was rebooted earlier when the line was noisier and it's since got better, as opposed to you having used the Mognuts Utility to set a different target noise margin? Well, basically, they can't. I really wouldn't worry about doing this.

      Besides, Sky don't routinely monitor for unreliable connections anyway. They only put caps on people's lines when the line is first activated or if they get a complaint from the customer about reliability.

      When router rebooted it now gives me 12.5 DB
      I think you mean 're-synced', rebooting removes this setting and you have to put it in again.
