Boo hiss at DLM banding


[link to this post]
 
So went and got a TP-Link 9980 to replace the ECI modem on my work line which is a Huawei cabinet and the reason for my slow speeds is obvious immediately.

DSL Modulation Type:VDSL2
Upstream
Downstream

Current Rate (Kbps)
4642 15000

Max Rate (Kbps)
5360 23890

SNR Margin (dB)
5.5 8.2

Line Attenuation (dB)
32.3 29

Errors (Pkts)
0 0

Looks like banding has been applied and so stuck at 15 Mbps download connection, have had this in the past and it generally improves again after a few weeks so will be interesting to see when it relents.

No point in the more expensive full AC kit, as just having 802.11a on 5GHz is enough to avoid Wi-Fi issues and until G.fast appears not going to be going much faster.

Was a breeze to set-up all I needed to change was username/password and set wireless settings/admin passwords.

Interesting you didn't just opt for a Huawei HG612 v3B which would have given you G.INP and the ability to monitor it 24*7.

"1.Fixed the bug that the speed dropped on the BT line of UK when G.INP was enabled."

And that version of firmware was pre-loaded onto router when it arrived.

As for monitoring 24x7 happy enough with a peek at the web interface if it does flap around, particularly as don't have computers left on 24/7.

In reply to a post by MrSaffron:

That doesn't actually say it supports G.INP, just that it copes with it.

What fw version is it?

I think I'm in a similar situation with my 20Mbps FTTC line with the same modem/cab combination.
I'll keep an eye open for your updates smile

The TP-LInk router the Andrew has started using is in the same boat as both BT HH5A and ECI Modem....

It wasn't capable until enabled by firmware tweak/update...

Whether it "supports or copes" is the same thing.... capable means it works, incapable means it don't....
