BT Infinity 2


[link to this post]
 
I had a faulty face plate a few months ago which I noticed because I was getting regular disconnects.
I'd not noticed much difference to my connection after fixing the fault and if it wasn't for my slow upload speeds via Chrome I wouldn't have noticed that my download ip profile had dropped by 5mb, was 77.5 now 72.5 frown
Is there anyway to get back to full speed?

Probably not * ...

Do you have line stats from before and after?

* There is one possible way - go and cut the phone lines of all your neighbours. No line, no broadband thus no crosstalk.

Line 7: 90350
Line 8: 6.7

That suggests you have some spare capacity. So actually yes you might be able to. It could be that your line resynced at a "high noise" time. Leave it alone overnight and try a manual resync at around 9:00 tomorrow.

Turn power OFF to the Hub, then disconnect then line. Wait a few minutes, power up the Hub and allow it to boot and stabilise, say 2 minutes. Reconnect the line, and get the new stats.

Line 6: should say something nearer 79999 and Line 8: reporting 6.x or

How long since you replaced the faceplate? (I'm assuming it has stopped the disconnects).

It's possible the DLM has turned on interleaving for your line due to the disconnects and probable errors as well that you weren't aware of. If the errors are also cured it can take a few weeks for the interleaving to be turned off. If it does that, you should return to full speed.

If there is anything preventing that removal, such as ongoing high levels of errors, then you are stuck with it unless the cause of them can be found. You would need an HG612 modem to reach the error statistics. Let's see what your answer to my opening question is smile.

I would say that it was around 2 months ago mate, and yes my connection is now rock solid again, unfortunately I can no longer find the original modem that came when I first had fibre installed as I now have the HH5 frown
