I spent a few weeks with BT before christmas with a fault open on broadband connections issues with the line, wholesale found a fixed a fault and was told I should expect a speed increase with the now stable line.
I can achieve good uptime on the connection with no drop outs, only restarts on the hub from myself which I have done after 10 days connection time, but the line rate has only gone up by 0.1mbps so I doubt the line profile will increase from this.
It's an OK speed at the moment for an area that only has ADSL Max, but it's less than what it should be so I'm wondering if anyone can help, I've diagnosed everything I can think of within the house, and with previously contacting BT before christmas, do I really need to go back to step 1 on the phone support with all the "have you changed the filters and stuff" which I've already exhausted from being the problem.
We have a second phone line in the house that is purely used as an additional broadband connection as we are all medium-heavy web users and that has a rock solid 6Mbps connection with a 5.5 line profile, perfect! So I'm not sure why the other one is still having issues despite the fault being "fixed".
Thanks in advance
Solved! Go to Solution.
can you post the adsl stats from your router please
when you previously posted in sept with this problem a mod offered help - did you take up the offer and if so what was outcome?
How do I find this on the Home Hub 5? It's not in the same place as the HH3. The helpdesk section doesn't show SNR etc
Yeah in september of 2013 the problem was resolved, I can't remember the issue exactly but that resolved the speed issues. The later post from november last year never had any responses but the live chat and phone chat helped get the fault on the line fixed by wholesale and saw the improved stability but have not had the promised speed bump since then. I am yet to recontact live chat about the speed as don't want to resort to step 1 of checking filters again, if possible.
go to hub manager then troubleshooting then helpdesk and post 1-12
can you run btspeedtester and when first test completes then run diagnostic test and post results

Here is the results from the speedtest, the uptime is low because I restarted it earlier today
can you go back to troubleshooting then logs or WAN and when router connected to internet about 3hrs ago you should see 2 lines of stats showing connection speed and noise margin - can you post the adsl stats show connection speed but not noise margin
I don't see that in the WAN event log, this is what I have:

I do have some home hub 3s and a non bt router I can put on the line which will show this info, but obviously don't have much uptime so don't want to unplug unless needed. One thing I did notice, is that it takes a couple minutes to create the dsl connection after reboot, the other line finds it as soon as it reboots and begins connection process but this hub seems to take longer to do so.
Just an update, saw that the home hub had restarted itself last night with the connection speed lower than before, although line profile has remained the same. There is still no SNR info in the helpdesk section or event log. Could there still be a fault on the line?
unfortunately the 2 lines of stats appear to have been removed from the HH5 logs.
