Ok, thanks for explaining, just wondered that was all because engineer was getting 14.1 meg at master socket and 13.9 on the extension, 12.2meg is fine for me anyway, its a big step up from 8 months at 7meg, and after 1st august 6meg if was lucky.Im happy now although it would be nice for my council and bt to get together and install fibre in our town which i think is going to happen since parliment agreed to put funds in the kitty for towns etc to be upgraded, it will be a while but its still a step in the right direction
Starting to get disconnect problems due to snr margin, seems to cope to about 5.3db then just disconnects around every min, all my other problems went away and i now have a new problem which is snr being to low, ive changed from hhb2 to hhb3 and doesnt disconnect as much because noise margin went to 5.5db, actually its only disconnected twice since using hhb3 but because of the constant disconnects ive lost a little speed. i suspect that the snr will be better in daylight.
has you connection not been upgraded to adsl2+ in the last few days? if so, you are in a 10 day training period and the router should be left connected 24/7 with no manual reset during this time the hub may reset (often) as it tries to find the best stable connection for your line. but no manual resets
Ok, but i did have to unplug the hhb2 and change it because the hhb2 just wouldnt stay on for more than a minute, it started around 7.00pm, so i think its broke , it was a spare from a friend and he didnt know whether it worked or not, but now i have hhb3 which is brand new and its only gone of twice on its own accord, im alittle dissapointed though because ive lost a littl;e bit of speed because of the hhb2 turning of constantly, also have no phone now because hhb3 dont support dect.Shouldnt my snr margin be above the lowest default of 6db, this is the lowest you can go before your connection starts to become unstable http://www.kitz.co.uk/adsl/lowSNR.htm read this.
that is not correct many connections run on a noise margin lower than 6 but you need a stable connection. my own connection runs stable of 3db
you need to stay connected 24/7 during the first 10 days after upgrade as your line starts a new training period
I just read something else on adsl2+, apparantly adsl2+ does things a little different, i was thinking it did the same as adslmax and that it was just higher speed, A high SNR margin will mean a reduced maximum throughput, but greater reliability and stability of the connection. A low SNR margin will mean high speeds, provided the noise level does not increase too much; otherwise, the connection will have to be dropped and renegotiated (resynced). ADSL2+ can better accommodate such circumstances, offering a feature termed seamless rate adaptation (SRA), which can accommodate changes in total link capacity with less disruption to communications.
well at least i definatly know the hhb2 my mate gave me is stuffed,that wouldnt stay on at all , it just gave in around 7pm/7.30pm i just hope it re adjusts as it was 14.25meg but then it went of and now its 14.08 on hhb3 stats, its not alot and im not really that bothered but still, it would be nice to have it back
as your line is in the 10 day training period you should really try and minimise the manual resets and let the equipment sort out the best stable connection for your line - preferably no manual resets during training is best
