testing for noise is important as that can have an adverse affect on your broadband connection and speed
it can also save you getting charged for an engineer callout by checking problem is not internal before getting engineer visit and possibly charged £130 £5 investment form argos could save you mony
are you using the test socket?
was the btspeedtester test run using a wired conenction not wireless
Alright, guess ill have to pick one of those up then to save the money theiir.
And yes, this was a wired connection (cat6) straith to the router, no splitters or anything.
I did get
I have also refreshed your line and have reduced the noise barrier ration in it. However to be honest with you that will be a make shift arrangement for you.
From the live support last time, not sure how valid it is though.
Yea, Already thought so,
I'll try to get a phone tomorrow to do the other test, and let you guys know how that went.
So finally got a phone,
My master socket doesn't have a test port, its a very old one apparently.
When i got my phone plugged in i do hear a dial tone, so that works.
While doing the test (17070 option 2) i do hear a very very quiet static in the background.
Another thing (not sure if it matters), i moved the router to another port while i was testing on the master socket, and the wifi dropped every time i did the test over the master socket, not sure if that is normal behaviour or not either.
@Zyzal Another thing (not sure if it matters), i moved the router to another port while i was testing on the master socket, and the wifi dropped every time i did the test over the master socket, not sure if that is normal behaviour or not either.
by another port do you mean another phone socket? if you used master socket with filter did you also have filter on socket hub was connected to?
Ow, i actualy did it the lazy way, unplugged the router with filter and everything from my main socket, and moved it to the socket in the kitchen, and plugged my phone directly into the master socket without any filters between it ( phone has a bt flat connector, so didn't fit in the filter.
all sockets need to be filtered
Oke, found a filter with a bt flat connector ( other one has a rj11 connector on it)
And the line is completly silend with the filter between it.
