Re: Asus DSL-AC68U Update

As far as I'm aware, you can't spoof the SNRM on VDSL so it doesn't matter what you set it to, it won't make any difference.

 

I'm assuming you have Infinity. If you are on normal broadband, then reducing it to 2dB or 3dB will increase speed but possibly reduce stability.

Re: Asus DSL-AC68U Update

I have mine set on 5db as well and SNR is normally around 4.6-4.8db so I do believe it has an effect - when the 3db margin change is rolled out to the cabinets then I'm not sure whether you need to manually set this to 3db or disabled in order to take advantage of the increased data sync rate.

Re: Asus DSL-AC68U Update

Not sure if has an effect or just wrongly reports the figure. Does changing it affect sync speed?

Re: Asus DSL-AC68U Update

My sync speed did increase but I also made some other changes to line settings at the same time so not sure what change was responsible - I don't want to mess around with the settings now as my line is now fast and stable.

Understand, just curious as I always thought that SNRM tweaking didn't work on VDSL.

Personally I don't know why people mess around with Stability Adjustment on Asus routers, I've always had mine disabled to no ill effect.

Okay  I think mine  was set on 5db   when i set it up ,the only issue i have with it is the firmware update seems to have lowered my download speed by 3mb  😞
