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?

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

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...
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)....
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).
It takes a few weeks of stable connection not just 7 days before DLM will start to improve your connection
Coming up to 90d later and it's still exactly 66999kbps....
Modem has been rebooted exactly once (and left off overnight) on the recommendation of a friendly Openreach engineer.
