      Hi All, Is this some kind of record for lousy connection ? 2dB has been seen , More frequently 3 or 4 db .

      The Netgear router is next to the master socket - and plugged into the test point.

      Well your connected at 10mb which is good

      Are you using wireless? if so, try a wire.

      Hi Smithy ,

      Cat 5 Lan & only one telephone.

      I changed the microfilter - no effect

      I get the vague feeling - that since the line was speeded up in july ( ? ) connection dropouts frequency - has sky rocketed !

      ( ok - i suppose there is a pun there ! )

      restart the router anytime between 10pm and midnight.

      This is the time of day where your line suffers from the most amount of line noise.

      You will lose some synch speed but the router will be at it's most stable and you should be able to run a lot better and with less errors on the line due to noise.
