      Re: Interesting SNR reading

      I've had a couple of line drops using the 934Gv2, I put it down to very low snr readings. Sometimes in the minus range.

      I decided to see if using my 585 and DMT would stop the line drops. It's been a couple of says since I switched and so far no line drops. But speed has also suffered.

      I initially set the snr to 8, however as expected in the evenings when noise increases, DMT showed a number of "gaps". I've tried tweaking snr to reduce the "gaps". The lower than 8 I go the higher the "gaps", the higher I go the fewer the "gaps". Currently synced at 13263, snr 9.5 speedtest 11165kbps so it has actually improved.

      Re: Interesting SNR reading

      Well, after running some checks I decided to go back to the Sky 934G router. Some interesting figures;

      Netgear sync in test socket, no filter 14170kbps, Speedtouch = 12838.
      Netgear in computer room with filter 14350kbps Speedtouch = 12500.

      Speed has returned around 12631 on speedtest.net.
      But only, 05 October, 2008 08:26:38 8008 Kbs 510 Kbs using the tester on this site.

      And only
      Speed Down 2116.03 Kbps ( 2.1 Mbps )
      Speed Up 641.88 Kbps ( 0.6 Mbps )

      On Thinkbroadband.com

      Thinkbroadband would appear to suffer from congestion with a lot people using their particular speedtester, they're never entirely accurate anyway.
      A better measure is to download a test file off their site and see what speeds you get (should be around 1.2/1.4MB/s).
