I have the same problem, in fact my broadband has dropped considerably over the past few months. I can only get broadband in one room of the bungalow (with previous supplierevery room) I am currently sitting right next to the router, which has a filter and have run a diagnostic test with results as follows:
Download speed 1.15
Upload speed 0.08
Ping latency 141.38
Can anyone tell me what these mean and if there is a problem or do I cancel BT and go back to my old provider?
in order for the forum members to help please can you post the adsl stats from your router you may need to 'show detail' to get all stats (if hub enter 192.168.1.254 in your browser and navigate to adsl or if HH4/5 then go to troubleshooting then logs and you are looking for 2 line together when hub last connected to internet and they will show your connection speed and noise margin or if netgear enter 192.168.0.1). Then run btspeedtester (MAC users may have problems). when first test completes then run diagnostic test and post the results ( do not reset the router).
are you connected directly via a filter to the NTE5 master or test socket or to somewhere else? Is the master the only phone socket in your home?
Have you tried the quiet line test? - dial 17070 option 2 - should hear nothing - best done with a corded phone. if cordless phone you may hear a 'dull hum' which is normal
Someone may then be able to offer help/assistance/suggestions to your problem
No sure what i'm looking for! Got to logs and this is the latest entry? C

the 2 lines in logs/wan
It reads like this...
20:25:12, 11 Apr. ( 82.060000) DSL noise margin: 25.00 dB upstream, 16.20 dB downstream
20:25:12, 11 Apr. ( 81.900000) DSL line rate: 448 Kbps upstream, 8128 Kbps downstream
can you persevere with diagnostic test please
what about using test socket and quiet line test?

Would this be it?? thanks
yes that is the 2 lines. it shows a line reset this morning was that router dropping connection or manual reset?
sorry to ask again but are you using test socket? did you try quiet line test?
so it must have been the router dropping connection this morning - does it do that often?
without a phone you cannot check your line for noise which could be reason router dropped conenction. most broadband packages come with free weekend calls. you can get a cheap corded phone from argos less than £10.
