      can i cap my own downstream rate

      As I have mentioned in another post i have been having wiring probs with my old BT wiring (actually says GPO on the box)

      Two cans and a piece of string is probably more modern

      When I get connected at 4608/5000 Kbps (attn 56) my noise ratio is around 6-7 and when someone picks a phone up it drops by about 3/4 - disconnection (4500 to 5000 seems to be my normal connection speed)
      all filters checked and changed

      My latest router reset gave me a 2900 kbps figure and an SNR of 10 - when the phone is picked up drops again by 3/4 - I stay connected

      Now I hope to get this sorted eventually but is there anyway in the meantime I can keep my downstream connection as it is now because I have to reset my router (I have to move it back to its original position) and I am worried the downstream rate will jump back up - it has before when I have re-set it

      at least then I will have a more stable connection until i can get this sorted
      i must be the first person trying to limit their connection speed
      apologies if this is a stupid question and there is no connection between connection and noise margin

      Cheers

      No that's not a stupid question.

      Yes you can very easily change your noise margin and probably the easiest way is to use a utility such as Mognuts - see the sticky in the tech forum.

      And yes again, there is a very clear connection between connection speed and noise margin. The first sticky in my signature at the bottom of this post explains the relationship in some detail.
