      Cured my odd disconnect

      I was suffering the odd disconnect - mainly a few days without but sometimes up to perhaps 1 or 2 a day.

      I used to have a 1mb BT Broadband connection that disconnected about 5 to 5 times a day (when my snr dropped below about 5db).

      When switching to SKY BB my 1mb speed became 2mb + however I would still get the odd disconnect.

      I found some 'information' on the 'tech forum' on here (password protected)and used info there up my average snr of 7.5db to 10.5db. This had the effect of lowering my connection speed to 1.5mb connection.

      However, now when my snr drops by about 3db in the evenings instead of falling below 5db it now only falls to 7.5db and my connection has remained stable.

      In effect I have capped my own speed down from 2mb to 1.5mb, but I can live with that as I no longer suffer any disconnections at all !!

      I have now had HUNDREDS of hours of connection since making this tweak.

      Trevor.
