      Question Question about my connection

      First these are the basic line stats:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 8254 kbps 765 kbps
      Line Attenuation 36.5 db 23.2 db
      Noise Margin 7.0 db 8.5 db

      All i want to know is that, is it common for the noise margin in my case to drop from 7.1db in the day, too around 6.3 to 6.4db at night, and the connection to still work perfectly.


      Any feedback is welcome.

      yep. that would be normal (something to do with the amount of other people on the net and radio waves i think)

      If you have a V1 router then a fall of only 0.8db is very good and perfectly normal. Lines with problems can see a fall of 5db or more.

      See the first sticky in my signature for an explanation.
