I have gfast which has provided 130 Mb/S until recently. Now I am getting below the advertised 100Mb. This may well be due to reorganisation of my equipment and turning it off due to home decorating. Looks like DLM has adjusted me down. Can my DLM be reset without the need for an engineer call out?
Solved! Go to Solution.
DLM is an automated process and will not be reset manually by an engineer unless a fault has been found and fixed. If your line is now stable it will eventually increase your speed back to what it was but this process can but not necessarily will take a few weeks or more.
Hi @gcdmartin Can you post your Home Hub router stats and we'll take a look? You'll get them by entering 192.168.1.254 in your browser, go to advanced settings then technical log information.

Your connection time is only 8hrs was that router dropping internet connection or manual reset. You need a stable connection before and changes . Is there any noise on quiet line test. Dial 17070 option 2 should be silent and best with corded phone
Thanks for the suggestions. Quiet line test was clear. Reason for just 8 hours up time is that I phoned BT yesterday and someone in Dublin reset my router. The same person has scheduled an engineer call out for Thursday so hopefully they will be able to reset my speed.
If line was reset yesterday I would have have thought you should have longer uptime than 8 hours by tonight.
There is no number to phone to get a DLM reset on vdsl unlike adsl
As gg30340 said, Direct Line Management is automatic. Be patient and wait a few days for your speed to return to normal. If the issue is not fixed, contact BT ( I forgot the phone number :/)
Just so that you are aware DLM stands for Dynamic Line Management.
