Banding removed!


[link to this post]
 
Yes, it can actually happen! After more than a year of being banded at 66999 I noticed that I resynced yesterday morning at 68489. This was two days after I powered off the modem for a couple of hours by mistake and resynced at 63716. I have no idea whether these two events were connected. Be encouraged! smile

Nice, yeah banding removal does happen but it takes a very long time to happen. I've had banding a few times and it's taken around a year on average (I believe) to see it return to the usual package limit. In order to never, hopefully, get banded again I avoid re-syncing as much as possible and where possible I allow at least 30 minutes between power off and power on of the modem. Too many re-syncs in an hour has also caused banding to occur for me. I've never had banding as a result of too many errors however, at least not that I recall.

And this morning I resynced at 71778/2000! I never power off the modem unless I absolutely have to and resyncs are very infrequent, so I don't think that was ever the reason for my banding. My BRAS profile hasn't caught up with the last resync yet, still at 62.79. I rebooted the router twice before the latest resync with no effect.

Looks like you are, so your IP Profile will be reduced to 91% ?

Ah, didn't realise it was that low, that's about right for my first increased sync, haven't rebooted the router for the second one yet.

Woah - another resync this morning at 75146/20000! That is about the highest it's ever been since the first couple of days of my 80/20 connection. SNR margin is down to 3.3db, which probably explains it, previously it has never got below 4-5.

Edit: after rebooting the router, my IP profile is now 69.04Mbps, just under 92% of the sync speed.
