      How long does DLM last?

      Sorry if this has been answered before, but how long does the DLM last for on Sky Fibre.

      I want to move my Sky router to another room in order to go for a more wired setup, but want to be sure that in doing so it doesn't reset the DLM.

      I have been up and running now for 9 days with no variation in speed, so dont want to upset the apple cart by switching it off.

      Any help is most appreciated

      The BTO DLM process is very different to Sky's ADSL version.

      I understand that it too has an initial training period of 10 days, but starts at the highest connection speed possible, slowing down if there are any issues. However DLM is always present on both Sky Fibre and Sky ADSL products. Should your line develop a fault it will slow it down.

      The intention being that once the fault is resolved, the speed will increase once more. With Sky's ADSL DLM it never used to speed up the connection, however since the revision earlier this year things are working better. I don't know enough about the pattern on BTO's DLM process to comment to how good it is in this respect.

      Switching your router or modem off for a while won't cause you any problems while your moving your router. Mine has been turned on and off a few times without DLM kicking in and reducing my speed.
      With sky since 1997.

      The DLM process will stop at the modem, so you can do what you like with the router. There is no reason why you should not move it. This is different from ADSL where the router has the modem built in, so it must be kept switched on.
