      Re: what speed you expect with this settings

      Ideally the router should always be fitted to the Master Socket.

      You should also never run a cable in an area where you are going to walk over. Apart from the potential trip hazard, you risk break the cable & potentially shorting any electrical wires.

      The ideal would be to run the telephone cable around the side of your room and protect it when it must travel across a pathway.

      As for getting your Internet connection to other points in your home, you have a variety of choices to make.

      You could purchase a pair of HomePlugs. These would allow you to connect the router to a 2nd point in your home.

      Alternatively you could purchase a long Ethernet cable. These are getting quite cheap now. A 20m Cat 6 cable can be bought from Play.com for Ģ7.79 at the moment.

      Again, run the cable around the room, and protect it in areas where you have to walk across. If you can't think of anything to protect it, try this:

      MK Black Cable Concealer 6cm X 1.8m, 5017490587718

      Simple solution
      Wire it straight to the master
      Leave it there
      run an ethernet cable to where you want it to go
      and pick up a 5 port switch on amazon for Ģ7
      then you can plug as much as you like into the switch
      printers etc..

      Re: what speed you expect with this settings

      Hello!

      After My last post I didnīt touch/reboot my Router but i found that everynight i can see that my router is droping my speed IS this normal?

      The stats are:


      ystem Up Time: 35:09:00
      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN MER 26232 1995660 0 20921265 1582944908 6:21:28
      LAN Up 2850313 2595287 0 2147483647 404691503 35:09:00
      WLAN Down 0 0 0 0 0 0:00:00
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream

      Connection Speed 10239 kbps 945 kbps
      Line Attenuation 36.0 dB 21.9 dB
      Noise Margin 8.4 dB 14.5 dB

      Please i know am a newbie in this things but am having the feeling that some is going wrong as per day i see Up and downs on the SNR margin, for exemple:
      In the Morning i get 8.5 SNR
      by 13 till 17 i get arroung 7.5
      and 8 onwords THe SNR goes down upto 6.5 SNR

      is this SMR variation Normal or does that show me some kind of line problems?


      Thanks for your feedback

      Yes and no.

      In your case it looks as though it is within the normal range that can be experienced between the day and the night.

      ADSL is a high-frequency radio signal sent along your telephone line. Like all other radio transmissions, the Sun can affect it's quality.

      Why did I say no? In some cases, when the street lights come, a faulty light can interfere with your signal. Typically this is noticeable by a significant drop in your speed at the same time the lights start coming on.

      This shows you resynced around 2 am as you expect when DLM is running.

      It is normal to get a fluctuation in noise margin between the quiet and noisy times on the line. As long as it is not Repetitive Electrical Impulse Noise (REIN) that is causing it, you have nothing to worry about, things are moving along nicely.
