      Question about noise margin

      What level can the noise margin drop to and still have a solid connection.
      Also if there is nothing wrong with your line should it be able to go down to 0db and still work. I use the sky V1 netgear router.

      Around 6db margin is typically needed for a stable connection, probably differs from modem to modem.
      0db should not work, as the figure is the level that the modem detects the broadband signal above the background noise

      Re: Question about noise margin

      With my non sky DG834GT it will hold an SNR as low as 3db and be stable. Much lower would eventually cause a drop at around 2db.
      Usually in the small hours of the night when no one is using the connection.
      Not Ideal, but there you go.
