      Static build up on line?

      Hello,

      Good Afternoon All!

      I have a small problem with my mastersocket which is an NTE5 type.

      The line syncs find at its (capped) limit of 4096k with a noise margin of ~8db. However after about 16 hours the line starts to drop, in quality, the margin drops and cuases the line to re-connect, at a lower speed.

      After a while (if left untouched) I end up with a terrible line, at as low as 256k with poor noise margin of less than 4db, unstable line ect. The line attenuation also changes from 57db to 58db, - (strange how i never see 57.5db in between, - and as you all know, this shouldnt really change too often)

      I have found a way to resolve this is to disconect the modem plug from the master socket, and plug it back in again, - and instantly the line re syncs at 4 meg with a stable noise margin.

      Im wondering if some kind of static build up could be the root my problem?

      Oh the btw, - im using an adslnation 2005 filter, - ive changed it for a standard filter, and same problems, - also checked with the master socket, - all the same.

      The nte5 has the 2 wires connected only, A+B.

      Anyone with any cunning ideas?

      Don't know if this is exactly what your looking for, but it's similar.

      I've never used it, but it appears to deal with automatic rebooting of the modem, so it may do what you want.

      This doesnt help,

      In order to get the line stable again, I need to physically unplug the line from the nte5 socket, and then plug it back in again.

      I was wondering of any kind of static build up??

      You've described a situation where your noise margin drops to the point where the connection drops. Rebooting the router (or pulling the cable in your case) fixes this. Which it always does.

      The utility suggested simply reboots the router for you when the connection drops rather than you doing it manually.

      (I'll look out for your reply some time in November )

      Faulty NTE5 faceplates are not unknown. Try replacing the faceplate.
