Once again thanks for the speedy response guys...I like this place!!
It's a pity I don't have a HH3 with its better diagnostics readout
So it looks as if it will just sort itself out with time. I will post back as the changes take place, I hate it when trying to research things and posts are just left mid way with no conclusion.
Cudos to both of you.
Can I add the final log results of the latest reset by the router/mods
13:17:09, 24 Feb. (1629950.780000) DSL noise margin: 5.90 dB upstream, 6.00 dB downstream
13:17:08, 24 Feb. (1629949.950000) DSL line rate: 1175 Kbps upstream, 19206 Kbps downstream
As can be seen things are working as they should now and I will mark this as Solved
Thanks for your help
