      The dmt tool

      Hi, can someone advise me one what the dmt is best used for. What settings are to be altered and why? From what I can gather there is quite a few people on here who use it, just wondering why and what settings are worth altering when they get it, thanks.

      The DMT tool allows you to alter the SNR of your connection which may improve speed but with potentail instability.

      Re: The dmt tool

      If you've got a DG834GT, then the only direction you'll be wanting to change your target noise margin is up, to give a lower speed but more stability. That damned thing can't even hold a connection at the default 6.9dB target noise margin, let alone something lower.
