      Is This Right?

      Right well i got the new firmware for the Netgear DG834GT Router V1.03.87 but while writing this thread i just found my Noise Margin at 3.6db but the internet is still working is this right? Is this what the update was ament to do to stabilize the line? (Keep the internet working at low Noise Margin levels)

      Also i just ran a speed test and am getting the speeds i normally get. Is this low Noise Margin anything to worry about?

      I believe one of the features of the new fw is that it is more tolerant of a low noise margin, so will hold a connection below the threshold that the previous fw dropped the connection.

      The noise margin will change from busy to quiet periods of the day, so yes if you leave it on overnight when its quiet it wil go back up. The router is designed to be left on all the time tho.
