Solved! Go to Solution.
your noise margin is very high and connection time very short are you having problems with your connection dropping or are you resetting the router in the hope of improving your connection?
are you connected directly to the NTE5 master or test socket or to somewhere else? Is the master the only phone socket in your home?
Have you tried the quiet line test? - dial 17070 option 2 - should hear nothing - best done with a corded phone. if cordless phone you may hear a 'dull hum' which is normal
Someone may then be able to offer help/assistance/suggestions to your problem
>are you resetting the router in the hope of improving your connection?
Yep. Obviously futile.

Yes. There is only one socket in the flat.
The line/hub settings obviously got into a bat state when there was an intermittent break in the line - this I understand. But it seems that after a line fault is fixed it takes several days for a usable speed to be restored - this is a serious design flaw in the BT system IMHO.
It should be possible for some kind of adaptive handshaking sequence to be instigated to get reasonably good settings in a few minutes. It doesn't make a BT line seem like something you can really rely on if it takes at least a week to recover from any fault (time to get an engineer to fix the line + time for the ADSL line settings to recover).
