I think filters are fitted to filter the lower frequencies so the phone works ok and the adsl side is pass through but fitting a filter will also "terminate" your ADSL line properly by ensuring that data is not reflected back down the phone line which could cause connection problems
yer basically they're used to try keep the 2 signals serperate, so one doesn't interfere with the other or u may have some sort of sync/speeds issues.
well it does seem like things are improving, my uptime is currently:
|Connection time||1 days, 00:59:59|
what does the downstream figure of 5,696 Kbps actually mean?
and that figure is determined when the router connects to the DSLAM /MSAN at the exchange after a reset/re-connection, it's quite interesting that the exchange can force a re-connection.
u learn something new every day lol
thx for your replies imjolly and john by the way 🙂
can you run btspeedtester and when first test completes run diagnostic test and post results. this will show profile which controls your download speed
well no resets while i was sleeping, only the manual one i just done for the performance test, the results are as follows:
Download speedachieved during the test was - 4.75 Mbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 0.6 Mbps-7.15 Mbps.
IP Profile for your line is - 5 Mbps
a couple of questions, my max achievable speed/acceptable range of speed is 0.6 - 7.15, shouldn't this be 0.6 - 8.**?
beforehand my maximum download speeds were around 840kb/s.
take it the IP profile will increase over the next few days if the connection remains stable?
you profile is set by your conenction speed so it will only increase if your conenction speed increases
7.15mb is highest profile you can get on adslmax
thx for the links guys, i've not got time to read them at the moment but will do shortly.
hmmm why is my IP profile not 7.150 mb then, if was achieving 8mb connection speeds beforehand?
