      low snr

      I recently got sky to resync my router after dlm and they claimied to sync it at around 12mb.

      This was great i thought until later in the evening when the router decided that it had enough an reset itself.
      it resynced at around 10mb but what i noticed is that the noise margin is really low.
      when i was on dlm the noise margin was consistently around 12-13db now its 8db during the day and 4db at most in the evenings with it dropping out completely at times.

      my current stats are...
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 10370 kbps 992 kbps
      Line Attenuation 38 db 20 db
      Noise Margin 4 db 8 db

      is there any utilities that i can tweak the margin on the 934 router or do i need to go through sky?

      Re: low snr

      If your noise margin is dropping that much you have a fault on your line somewhere, you should see no more that 2-3db drop from evening to daytime.

      Get the stats again from your TEST socket and if you can, leave it plugged in there via a filter for 24hrs to see if that is better.
