I am currently goinmg through my "Training Period" and I wanted to ask what no doubt will sound like a stupid question.
I was originally syncing at 2752 yesterday when I hooked up the router and a short time later it fell to 2624 and then 2 hours later fell to somewhere in the 1300 area, can't remember the exact figure.
I have rebooted the router a few times and each time the synce rate comes up a bit, currently at 1664 with an SNR of 11 but during th day it has gone upto around 16. Should I reboot the router to try and get the sync rate up to get a hopefully increase in my throughput speeds or should I be allowing the BT kit to test this for me.
As far as I am aware I have to sync at the same rate for 3 days solid before the connection will increase or is that the throughout speeds I am thinking off.
Can someone clear this up for me as I would much rather get above the 2Meg mark again as that is the most I can get from my 5.25km line.
Update - Sorry guys on on Sky Connect at present until LLU goes live sometim ein the next millenium no doubt

Are you on MID/MAX or Sky connect because there is NO trainning period on ADSL2+ but if your on Sky Connect then there is, I think!
Wait 4 the brains to reply!! - also try rebooting your router!

Hugsie having read your definitions,I would like to know how you suss out your attenuation speed and what level is regarded as average?Also am I right in thinking,from your notes, that it is better to leave the router permanently on.I must admit I've been shutting everything down once I've finished doing my thing.

Stevie go do some lite reading here
And yep routers really hate getting hot and cold and they will start to cause you problems eventuallyRay
Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.
If you would like to know the straight line distance to your exchange then
Would you like an idea of the possible speeds you will get with the Max Package then click here or for the Connect Package then click here

im on connect. in the router page its is currently showing 6336 kbps.
does this mean i have just over a 6mb line

yes that is about right. although there would be overheads to consider as well so you will always run a little below that.
