FTTC DLM reset after building work?

Hi there,

Newly registered, but have been lurking for some time. I see various requests for DLM resets due to reduced sync speeds after a fault.

I've recently been going through a load of building work, which resulted in several power outages. For the last few years I've always been able to sync at ~80Mbps down, but I'm now stuck at ~66Mbps?

Line stats look fine (SNR varies between 8dB and 12dB depending on time of day). I've since left my line up for 30+ days without reboot but DLM doesn't appear to have backed off yet.

Any ideas how I can 'kick it' or request a reset?

Re: FTTC DLM reset after building work?

can you enter your phone number and post results leave exchange and cab but delete number

https://www.broadbandchecker.btwholesale.com/#/ADSL

is there any line noise which may be a problem  dial 17070 option 2  should be silent and best with corded phone

i wouldn't expect a noise margin to fluctuate so much from 8 to 12db

Re: FTTC DLM reset after building work?

Thanks for the quick info, @imjolly 

I'll check internal cable (Draytek Vigor 130 connected directly to the master socket) and line noise shortly. I'm only questioning the building work as I've been stable for 4+ years at 80Mbps and all of a sudden it's dropped.

Might be a red-herring though... just curious if repeated power cuts were a legitimate explanation or whether it's possible to infer DLM is active (i.e. specific rate steps)?

I'll start logging SNR via SNMP so I can build up a picture of how it's changing. The range above was noticed during spot-checks, but I agree the +/- 4dB is concerning (EE background - totally get logarithmic scale).

Re: FTTC DLM reset after building work?

Ok after recording the statistics for a few days.... things are just super-weird. I even bought a second Vigor130 as I figured my modem was broken....

Here's a graph of SNR, the current/attainable sync speeds, line attenuation, and uptime.

Modem booted at 14:20 yesterday. DSL cable reseated at 22:00 last night (note the SNR recovers immediately when resyncing).

Any ideas?! I've sent this to Draytek too for their opinion...

Re: FTTC DLM reset after building work?

Ok - suspect this is a Vigor issue (either Lantiq chip compatibility with my cabinet or a firmware issue). I switched back to the old HG612 (unlocked it for stats) and it's night and day....

The below has two different Vigor 130 in use (I bought a 2nd in shear frustration)....

Re: FTTC DLM reset after building work?

Any chance of the moderators performing a remote DLM reset? I've now been stable on the HG612 for over a week, and the attainable speed is ~81Mbps (and constant SNR of 10dB).

Thanks!

It takes a few weeks of stable connection not just 7 days before DLM will start to improve your connection
