      Is my upstream snr looking ok?

      I moved my router in the house and the checked the stats. It's the evening when I did this but the sync stayed around 18000Mbps and downstream attenuation stayed at 30db.

      However i I don't remember my upstream snr being so low. It seems to be hovering around 3.3db and jumping to 4.4 occasionally. Something's telling me it used to be 11db but that could have been years ago in my old house .

      how is it looking?

      Sky's new DLM settings allow the noise margins to go down to 3 Db, with an increase in speed, if the line is good enough. It looks like yours is, so don't worry about it.

      Also, some sky routers do report the decimal point in that manner.

      So 3.3db, 7.7db, 10.10db etc.

      If yours occasionally jumps to 4.4db, the true figure at the time is likely to be 3.9db, jumping to 4.0db which is normal.

      Thanks guys

      I hadn't noticed in the past but the line is pretty stable since I cleaned up the internal wiring be also removed the bell wires.

      Sky extension was pretty bad. My sync went from 13mbps to 15mbps after removing it and then 15-18mbps after line cleaned up and snr went from 6db to 3db.

      pretty incredible increase and snr is rock solid.
