      Central Heating Pump Suppressors?

      Anybody have any experience with Central Heating Pump Suppressors

      I have noticed since my central heating has been on my crc0 errors
      have gone from around one every 70mins to around one every 8mins

      I noticed this after my central heating packed in last week
      and the pump was going on and off constantly trying to fire the boiler up
      that resulted in around 4000 error's in a day
      when its usually around 20-25

      So i strongly suspect its down to the central heating pump being started/stopped

      I need to fix this asap as i am leaving my central heating off as much as poss atm
      to stop dlm kicking in

      Probably not the pump per se.

      Modern boilers don't have a standing gas pilot light but use spark ignition.

      If the boiler doesn't fire up the software will keep trying and may try a higher level spark.

      If the insulation of the spark circuit is damaged it may arc over somewhere other than at the gap in the combustion chamber resulting in more radiation.

      Sparks radiate a high level,wide frequency range (I would have said broad band but that has a different meaning on this forum) energy spectrum.
      They can affect everything from AM radio to digital terrestrial TV.

      Solution -- get your boiler fixed.

      It had a new pcb last week
      and is working fine now

      My boiler has a pilot

      the thing that makes me strongly suspect the pump
      when it was broken it was start stopping every few seconds
      and my error rate went crazy

      now that its fixed the error rate is high when the central heating is on
      but not crazy

      if its off my error rate is normal

      No guarantee, but it might help if you plug your router into a surge suppressor.

      Re: Central Heating Pump Suppressors?

      I did that about 6 days ago
      didnt make a diff

      Linkuptime = 4 day 22 hr 21 min 58 sec
      RSCorrectedErrorsDn = 0
      RSUnCorrectedErrorsDn = 805
      RSCorrectedErrorsUp = 0
      RSUnCorrectedErrorsUp = 59


      Linkuptime = 5 day 5 hr 7 min 3 sec
      RSCorrectedErrorsDn = 0
      RSUnCorrectedErrorsDn = 833
      RSCorrectedErrorsUp = 0
      RSUnCorrectedErrorsUp = 59

      In 5 days I will get about 110 or so errors
      Usually just under double the upstream error rate

      Does it actually affect your connection, though? If not, does it matter?

      Re: Central Heating Pump Suppressors?

      Yes it makes me skit in games
      when the pump goes on and off

      and it will most prob kick off dlm again


      On average

      7.95 db margin i usually have an error every 14 mins
      12db margin i usually have an error every 75-80mins
      14db margin i usually have an error every 120mins

      im at a 12.4db margin atm and getting an error every 9 mins average
      though this was at every 4 mins until i calmed down with the heating being on
      so the average is getting larger

      I dont want to have to force a 18db margin or something
      if i can just replace the central heating suppressor

      I read that they can pack in and if they pack in it causes problems with adsl lines
      but cant find any further info

      One thing I find a bit strange is that you are showing zero corrected errors. In most stats I have seen, the corrected errors exceed the uncorrected by a very large margin. Do you know the reason for this? Makes me wonder if your router is reporting correctly.

      Why not? Surely that will reduce your uncorrected errors.
