      What is your noise margin like? Possibly it has been too low and resynced the line to stabilise it.
      yes your right but they were to hot handle and now they have cooled down they taste nice.

      I was going to phone sky when training had finished, as on mysky account it says my line has been set up to 16mb.

      If it is correct and that it what your line is set to then chances are that it is going to build errors.

      I don't agree with that, for a start building up errors does no harm. It is the rate the errors are generated at that can cause problems. If the line is set to a maximum of 16Mb, the router will only sync to the speed it can attain with a noise margin of 7db. If this noise margin is set when the line is at its noisiest, there will be few problems. This is how lines were set before DLM was introduced, and to be honest, there seemed to be less problems then.
