Help reading Line stats


[link to this post]
 
Could someone with the knowledge look at my screenshot of my stats and tell me if this is good or bad... I'm a bit worried about the amount of "errors" it is claiming.

This is a connection which is freshly installed today, so I know it might get better/worse over time, just wondering if the stats are ok for now and what numbers I should be aiming for.

Just to add this is a Plusnet Home connection on 80/20 Mbps service.

About 400m from the green box.

The errors should reduce when interleaving is applied in a couple of days.

Downstream is a bit low for a 14 dB line - I would expect it in the 70s however with 6dB SNR it suggest there is a fair bit of noise potentially from cross talk. Upstream is about where I would expect it to be.

Thank you for replying.

I have no idea about these things which is good that others do smile

I have heard of interleaving before, I also remember that I have always been told I am meant to wait around 10days for the line to "settle" which I assume is what this interleaving will be then.

there is a few other things that run nearish to the cable, so maybe it is that which is causing the noise, i will have a look around tomorrow when its bright and see if its something outside or inside.

Seems a bit low as troublegum has mentioned.

Do you see any difference if you connect to the test socket?

Could be a lot of things - fridge, freezer, plasma TV, central heating, heat pump, generator, LED street lamps, general factory type machinery ...

Not sure if it will work with your modem/hub, but get a copy of DSLStats and see it it does, that can give some very good information.

Agreed.

My guess is this not connected at the NTE, or there’s extension wiring present (causing a bridge tap)

Not sure what a NTE is and even googling gives me its either a big rack mountable piece of equipment that I know I don't have or its a BT Socket.

I do have the "new" socket and there is no extensions on this line at all, not even a phone.
the line is purely for data.

Not sure if i should play around with disconnecting and reconnecting to the test socket incase it affects the profile? or is this a myth.

there is a really old freezer that is close enough to be a problem, so I might try turning that off for a bit and seeing if there is any change.

The other thing I was thinking is that it might be the cable that runs from the socket to the router, as that is very thin and looks quite cheap.

Turn the freezer off for a couple of hours - just do not open it and it will be fine. Do the same with any other devices close by - including fluorescent or LED lights.

Then, start watching the ATTAINABLE or MAX rates not the sync and see how it changes.

It has now been 7days since the install, I have not really noticed any increase or decrease in speeds or any of the figures.

I did how ever find I can login to my routers command line interface and it shows a bit more information, it does also show that interleaving is still off, should this be on by now ?

I am also not sure if everything is correct, as there is "Bit Swap" and "SRA" Options in the DSL settings page and both are enabled.

Here is the info from the router:
