      adsl2 will sync at the max possible speed so your snr will be around 7db

      Normally you have a higher snr during the day and at night it drops.
      So if you sync during the day say at 10mbps with a snr of 7db; during the night your snr will drop and you probably wont be able to connect to the interweb. If you then reboot the router it will sync at a lower speed to get the snr back to 7db.

      To get round this I sync at night and never turn my router off. The router is designed to stay on 24/7.
