      razz Don`t worry 7 is not low it is meant to go up and down according to the level of noise on the line I have heard that someone had 0 and all they did was restart the router which then went back to their normal noise margin you don`t have to do anything just wait till DLM is finished and if there is a problem afterwards then someone will explain what to do

      That seems to be the way DLM is meant to work with a lot of connections. Although rebooting the router at the quietest time on the line does not seem to be very sensible, if it happened at a noisy time, when everyone was on line, they would be deluged with complaints.

      It's still up. Hasn't re-synced at all since the last one (touch wood).

      Just going to do the benchmarks...

      Hi Aly looks good when Isitme Tom see`s the thread he will advise what to do more than likely ask for stats so he can see that DLM has finished and if he can advise to get you more speed.
      It's still up. Hasn't re-synced at all since the last one (touch wood).
      No wood to touch it looks good and I think it will improve the experts will tell you more

      Ooooh. It re-synced again 22-hours ago...

      Code:
      Thu, 2009-04-02 02:22:40 - Loss of synchronization :5
      Thu, 2009-04-02 02:23:31 - LCP down.
      Thu, 2009-04-02 02:23:31 - Initialize LCP.
      Thu, 2009-04-02 02:23:32 - LCP is allowed to come up.

      It's as if it deliberately does it every few days at about the same time, usually in the middle of the night.

      On another note, the router does seem to send out alot of NTP requests (net time). The old 834G (non-sky) would do it about once per day with BT. This 934G (sky) is doing it every hour in some cases.

      Is the request getting a reply? If it doesn't it will keep asking until it does. There seems to have been something wrong with the time server last Sunday/Monday, I also had multiple requests over a short period.
