Well ten minutes after the BT engineer left today, all was looking good, and then my modem started to sync, and sync, and sync. I've taken this opportunity to make a post while I actually have an Internet connection.
I know the BT guy said it may take ten days to "settle down" but do new connections really suffer this much syncing? or could it be the noise that I now have on the line after the BT guy did his work - nice job!
If you have noise on the line,then it would definately make your modem have trouble holding a sync level.
You need to report a noisy line and get it fixed,[but do not mention broadband,just say that your phone line is noisy].
But do a silent noise test first to confirm that it is noisy.
And I agree,the engineer should have noticed it if he did a test to the cab from your master socket.?
Yes he did a test alright, but the noisy line is intermittent so he may have missed it. It can be silent and then have a complete fit for a couple of minutes. I don't see any deterioration of speed, it just conks out and the DSL LED starts flashing away.
I have also noticed that by using my telephone I can pretyy much get the DSL light flashing. Starting to wonder if it is a faulty master socket or poor wiring in the master.
