      until you reboot the router ?

      Re: Noise Margin Problem

      Yes, a bit faster. On a relatively noise free line, with your attenuation you could expect up to ~8000kbps.

      Noise margin varies through the day - that's entirely normal. However, lines which are a bit noisy suffer from this a bit more. I strongly recommend you consider improving the filtering on your connection. You will find more info in the cabling and faceplate help forum.

      The Sky router begins to struggle when the noise margin hits ~6db and disconnections often start at about 4.5-5db. To understand the reasons behind this plus two methods to avoid this problem read this.
