Organic Finally Activated
Im finally activated after waiting a month seems to be working really good so far, although i had to visit sky.com and then skybroadband.com to actually get it to let me use any websites
here are my stats
ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 2080 kbps 448 kbps
Line Attenuation 15.5 db 31.5 db
Noise Margin 5.6 db 11.0 db
are they any good?

Could you do a reboot and check them again? That attenuation should get a higher sinc, but 15.5 is a known false reading on these routers.

how do you reboot the rotuer without turning it on & off?
im using sky broadband connect as there llu isnt available to me untill january.

okay so since my first post these have changed
Connection Speed 2176 kbps 448 kbps
Line Attenuation 63.5 db 31.5 db
Noise Margin 6.0 db 11.0 db
When i was on a stable 1mb connection i had a snr of around 14 i think. that was with aol.
So far im still pretty pleased its been reliable and all sites work, and hopefully it will stable out eventually. ive got another 9 days to wait.
When i was upgraded to a 2mb connection (with aol - it took a week to stable out) i found that it became alot quicker later in the evening presumably when not many people where using the internet.

Sorry for spamming the forum with so many posts in this topic.
But i have a totally dumb question.
I think a few years ago now that i had the gain increased on my line for some reason
will this affect the snr?
If so should i ring bt and ask them to remove it?

I have moved your posts into their own thread to keep the sticky on topic and hopefully get you more replies to your questions.
Are you running from the master socket? Have you tried the test socket?

Im running direct from the master socket and using a adsl v1.0 filter the ones from solewise
Would an increase in the gain affect the snr?

That one I do not know, but I am sure someone will come along and provide you with an answer

Thanks, hopefully someone will know about the gain on the line if it will affect it by making the snr worse or by having it removed or better by having it increased

Are there any extensions runing from behind your master socket? Are these filtered by the solwise filter (sorry never seen one) is it a dangly one or a fitted faceplate?
