Re: Upgrading to better speeds after exchange upgraded to ADSL2?

Tried connecting to the test socket some time ago and no diffrence. During peak times like right now the SNR is varying from 6 - 8 db though.

Re: Upgrading to better speeds after exchange upgraded to ADSL2?

as john46 said I would do away with the accelerator/iplate as that is intended for people with extensions sockets where the bellwire is causing noise problems

 

how long did you leave connected to test socket as it may take a few days to get the benefit

Re: Upgrading to better speeds after exchange upgraded to ADSL2?

About a day. The stats were pretty much exactly the same on the line.

 

Guess all I can do is wait for BT to pull themselves together and sort out ADSL2+ rather than messing about old customers.

Re: Upgrading to better speeds after exchange upgraded to ADSL2?

if you have a problem with noise on your line causing errors then the upgrade to 21CN may not help initially as 21CN is far more aggressive on line noise than adslmax.  would be better trying to improve your current connection but that choice is yours

Re: Upgrading to better speeds after exchange upgraded to ADSL2?

I have tried just about everything to improve it already. Nothing said here is new.

Re: Upgrading to better speeds after exchange upgraded to ADSL2?

sorry but with 2 master sockets I have assumed 2 separate phone lines - is that correct?  I would do away with the iplate as it is not required and in fact may not help your connection

Re: Upgrading to better speeds after exchange upgraded to ADSL2?

Yeah 2 seperate phone lines. The one with the connection is a NTE5 master socket and the other is a old LJU type from when the house was built. Il try without the iPlate.

Re: Upgrading to better speeds after exchange upgraded to ADSL2?

No diffrence without iPlate, line test is completely silent with and without and silent plugged straight into test socket. No diffrences in the stats.

 

I am planning to transfer my broadband to annother phone line in the house soon and I did the quiet test on that I noticed a quiet buzz with the occaisonal pop... Not a good sign I suppose. It's an old LJU master socket and we do have an unused extension on it. Since its a LJU socket though I don't think I can remove the extension socket?

 

Any steps I can take to improve the LJU socket?

Re: Upgrading to better speeds after exchange upgraded to ADSL2?

you could start by removing the bell wire from the sockets

Re: Upgrading to better speeds after exchange upgraded to ADSL2?

Yeah but as far as I know BT's rules say not to open the LJU master socket and you know this is a BT forum.. sounds like a good way to get my service terminated.
