Re: 4 months and still rubbish.....

Go to solution
Rebooting the router should not really be required. When I get a drop in speed, often especially in winter what I tend to do is wait until I see that the current noise margin is greater than my target margin value. At that stage forcing a reconnect gets me a higher speed since there is a greater signal to noise ratio than when it last synced.

The noise margin doesn't change, not unless I reboot.

 

How would I force a reconnect anyway ?

Most routers on the admin pages have a disconnect/reconnect option, you could also unplug the adsl cable and plug it back in again. At least one site said that was better for the exchange then powering off the router (which a reboot does) but I am not all that convinced it makes much difference.

Hi the disconnect reconnect option is by far the best method and is well proven

"Hi the disconnect reconnect option is by far the best method and is well proven".

 

Is that in the hub software ?

 

It's a business hub 2700

 

Connection speeds gone back uo to 1284k, 1000k profile.

Latest and hopefully last update.......................

 

After another 2 or 3 engineer visits.

 

One of the engineers fitted a BT 80B RF3 Junction box which surpresses RF interference on the line, and that definately improved the stability and the synch rate remained stable for longer and with a 1250k profile.

 

The last engineer still suspected RF interference, and although he wasn't a Rein engineer tracked it down to next door, whatever it was has be sorted out, although he wouldn't tell me the cause.

 

When he left the synch rate was 1856k (Highest ever as far as I know), into the 1500k profile range although my profile was still at 1250k.

 

Sych rate has since changed a couple of times and now at 1728k.

 

Anyway I will be happy if my profile stays at a stable 1250k, time will tell.

 

Thanks to Stuart and the other forum mods for persisting with this problem, hopefully this is the last you'll hear from me.

Not convinced your issue is sorted if you are still seeing disconnects.

 

Your last post sounds very like my business line, I can get 1800's but it tends to not keep all night, at 1760 it held for most of a week until a series of drops during bad weather last night (down to the 0.5mbs profile in fact).

 

In my case REIN is pretty much confirmed or at least that is the only suspicion now, given that I have had specialist REIN engineers and PTO's out I was suprised noone has mentioned that junction box but I have posted a thread about it to see if anyone has any ideas about it however I am not sure that it does much that the NTE5 does not already do, especially when used with a filtered faceplate (but I could be wrong).

As Rein engineers are in short supply, only 2 in the south of England, they generally won't pay you a visit untill the BT 80B RF3 Junction box is fitted.

 

My synch speed has been over 1728k since Monday.

 

I also have an NTE5 socket and a business hub.

 

The box looks like this...................

RF interference seems to show up on a small FM transistor radio.
