      Nice to see the low error figure. It's hard to tell how bad it is over such a short time for myself. The more experienced might have a better clue.

      The ideal noise margin from Sky is around 7db. Lower than this could indicate that the line has been custom configured or that there is a problem. Higher indicates a poorer quality line, but is normally not unexpected. Extremely high numbers can also indicate a problem though.

      Looking through this thread, I see that you stall haven't posted your stats, despite a few requests. It would be nice to be able to cast an eye on them if you could oblige.

      Thank you.

      Re: D-Link Router Unstable

      Thanks mate, my daughter is well on the mend now but it was pretty unplesent i can tell you that.

      The noise margin aims for 7db regardless of router after a re-boot.

      I have put the Sagem back on, the noise margin is pretty much rock solid at 7.2db (there is a 0.1 deviation thats all)

      My noise margin is 55db (its 53.5db with the D-Link)
      My sync is 4352kbps (its around 4850kbps on the D-Link)
      Upstream sync and noise margin is identical on both routers

      I am pretty sure it is the D-Link and nothing else now.

      I have to doubt that. Can you copy and paste them please?

      Re: D-Link Router Unstable

      I am struggling to see where you have a noise margin of 55db.

      Your sync is quite good for your attenuation. I think the difference you are seeing between the two routers is down to the chipsets they are using. If you are experiencing drop outs with the Dlink it may be because it is syncing so much higher. If you resync the Dlink each time your noise margin falls below about 5 db, it should eventually stabilise it at a speed it can sustain.

      Attenuation sorry, my head is still a bit of a tiz given what we have been though over the last week, although i am pretty sure you know what i meant.

      my highest sync was 5568kbps but the main copper to our village got pinched and that knackered the job up.

      That is probably at the root of your problems. The replacement wire or the jointing involved may not be up to the standard of the old line. Unfortunately unless you also have problems with your voice line, it is difficult to get anything done about it.

      I can understand that your mind will be on personal life rather than this.

      It looks as though BT may have replaced the copper wire with Aluminium cable instead.

      Otherwise they may have rerouted your connection so that it now travels further than previously. You do seem to be getting the best speed for your current connection. As Tom has said, the difference will likely be down the the different chipsets on the two routers.

      I personally don't know if Sky would be able to get your line issues resolved. It might be worth speaking with someone at Sky to see what they can do though.

      Sadly theft of the copper cables has become a major issue across the country. It is costing everyone more with the credit crunch. Although people will say that it is BT's issue, they have to replace the stolen copper, this might be paid for by the insurance, but that means higher premiums & man power being wasted to redo work that was fine previously.
