Re: Mk3 Openreach socket as an extension of master socket?

Thanks all for the info - I may leave it for now and see how it goes, with the option of doing what @imjolly suggests above.

The DLM change makes sense as I noticed the line speed increased from about 50 to 55Mbps. Worth noting that the Home Hub only managed a max of 45Mbps!

 


If you are getting sufficient wireless coverage, then I would leave it where it is. Mine is located in an upstairs room, and covers the whole house, and our next door neighbour`s house (separate building), who use our guest network. They have all Apple stuff, and that connects just fine.

I have seen it on my daughter`s TP Link router, but it does not happen on my ADSL connection.


Kieth, by any chance do you have DLM turned off on your ADSL connection?

Nice increase! Did you notice any values change like SNRM?

you cannot turn off the DLM  - many wish they could for varying reasons

No, but it does not interfere with my connection. I do have very occasional noise issues on the line, which can be cleared by ringing my phone from a mobile, but that has been going on for many years, and would be difficult to locate.

No, the SNRM remained at just below 3dB.  I assume 3dB is the target? I just read an article from last year which says BT were rolling out 3dB targets by default, rather than 6.

Surprised DLM managed to increase your speed if no changes were made. A crosstalker maybe went offline?

The house had an inactive BT line which was reactivated on 15 October and I then connected the Home Hub. The only change since then is that the Hub started rebooting and playing up in other ways, so I replaced it with a TP-Link router on Sunday (and that in itself caused almost a 10Mb increase in line speed).

What's a crosstalker? Is it related to a crossed line?
