Last Friday my HH5B decided to give in, just sat there with an orange light flashing away, wouldnt go solid blue.
I had a spare HH5A which I attach and bingo it syncs and broadband restored however my speed has dropped from approx 68 meg to 52 meg. Now BT say no fault and are sending me another router hopefully a 5B, funny as the broadband checker actually states a minimum speed of 66meg with a max of 70meg, I didnt even thin they stated a 'minimum' speed but apparently so, and funny as i was actually getting more before the router broke. Its been stable for nearly 5 days and no DLM increase seen.
Thing is my router went pop when we had a bad thunderstorm, heavy rain and lightening, conincidence maybe??
The below are my router stats, does the noise etc look within limit?
Data rate 19993/57362 (my ip profile is approx 52meg)
Max date rate 21366/77436
Noise Margin 6.3/10.7
Line Attenuation 10.4/11.6
Signal Attenuation 10.3/11.6
Looks like DLM has kicked in probabley due to the hub giving up.
Try a quiet line test 17070 option 2. Any noise report a line fault.
Thought as much. Is it likely that DLM will increase the speed back? If not I will have to make the dreaded call to BT
If there is no longer any fault on the line then DLM should relent but it can take several weeks.
Yes I had read about the 5A and 5B although looking the same werent. Hopefully it will be a 5B i get later today.
