Re: SNR reset

Go to solution

Hi all. Can anyone advise me how to view the SNR levels using a Home Hub 5 connected to ADSL?

 

Since plugging it in as a direct replacement for a Home Hub 2, my download speed has dropped from 4.5mb to 2.5mb. However, I can't find any way to display SNR. I've pasted in whatever info I can find below.

 

I've had the HH5 for about two months, during which time we had some bad weather that was affecting the connection (I live in the countryside, 4km from an exchange which has ADSL Max). I turned the hub off and on about four days ago to see if it would re-pair, but if anything it is slower.

 

In case you're wondering, I got it for the gigabit ports and faster wifi, but now I'm thinking about plugging in the old one again to see what happens.

 

Here's the Broadband Connection Info:

ADSL Line Status
Connection Information
Line state:Connectedppp0_0
Connection time:4 days, 10:00:50
Downstream:2.5 Mbps
Upstream:448 Kbps

 

And here's the BT Helpdesk Info:

Re: SNR reset

Go to solution

I moved your post as previous thread was marked as solved

 

try going to hub manager then troubleshooting then logs and look for 2 lines where router las conencted to internet.  you should see connection speed and noise margin.  BT have updated some firmware and that information has disappeared

Re: SNR reset

Lines should look like this

19:11:29, 07 Nov. (2290101.460000) DSL noise margin: 7.00 dB upstream, 6.10 dB downstream
19:11:29, 07 Nov. (2290101.390000) DSL line rate: 448 Kbps upstream, 288 Kbps downstream

Re: SNR reset

Go to solution

Thanks guys. I've searched the entire log back to first boot for mention of the word "noise" or "DSL"; I've also visually scanned for the two lines suggested.

 

The word "noise" does not appear in the logs and the only mention of DSL is in multiple references to ATM over DSL being up or down.

 

Any further suggestions, or is there a way of getting BT just to tell me what the levels are and adjust them for me?

 

Thanks!

Sean

Re: SNR reset

Looks like your firmware has been updated hence the 2stats line are no longer there. There is no other way of getting that information

Re: SNR reset

Go to solution

That's a shame! Thanks for the suggestions anyway.

 

I also tried this program: http://vwlowen.co.uk/RouterStatsHub/routerstatshub.htm which offers a comprehensive insight into HH3 and/or HH5 performance, but just seems to output zero values for me. I guess it's because of the firmware upgrade but might work for others.

 

Any ideas on how to get BT to bring me back to my previous speed?

Re: SNR reset

Routerstats is supposed to work with hh5a - i would try and see if you can change the settings to get it to work as it will provide all the information you need
