I have recently swapped from a Type A to Type B HH5 Router as I believe the type B has a superior chipset that fully supports G.INP etc. (Broadcom?)
As a result my line speed has improved marginally.
Previously on the type A I was at a SNR margin of 3.5Db with a sync of ~69500
On the Type B, my SNR is 6.2 with a sync of ~70500
This is great because it means my line should now be capable of possibly the full 76000 sync at the 3db Margin.
My question is, will my SNR be automatically reduced to 3Db (it hasnt done in 3 days connected) or is the standard Margin different between Type A and B HH's?
Thanks in advance,

Thanks for the replies.
However, on my Type A the SNR margin was ALWAYS 3.5db.
It's only risen to 6db since I swapped to a Type B.
Ideally I want 3db on the Type B to acheive the maximum possible sync rate.
Is there any explanation for this behaviour - or why I was synced to 3.5db on the type A (it was like this for 12 months+, or as long as I can remember, also after every reboot of the router!)
