Interesting Findings - SSFP MK4 vs Test Socket


[link to this post]
 
Hi guys,

I've noticed that if my modem is connected to the test socket on my master socket 5c, the amount of FECs/retransmissions drop considerably (over 90% in some cases), compared to when it's connected to the SSFP.

I've also noticed that the SNRM is more stable, the QLN graph is less noisy and the Hlog is more complete. I don't know if the MK4 is faulty, but it seems that it produces noise rather than removes it! There doesn't seem to be any significant difference in the sync speed between the test socket or the SSFP, either.

Obviously, having the modem connected to the test socket isn't ideal, but it's obviously in a better place than before!

Has anyone else noticed this behaviour?

William Grimsley.

Presumably there are no extensions connected to the faceplate? If not then it does sound like maybe the electronics on the faceplate are on their way out.

Nope, none whatsoever. I checked all of the extension sockets in our house and they're all dead (no dial tone).

Could well be a dodgy faceplate then.

Just to be clear: there's no dial tone even when the faceplate is in? Because removing the faceplate will disconnect the extension wiring (at least in a modern box).

Also, even any partial or incomplete extension wiring might have an effect, so better to make sure it's entirely disconnected from the master socket by checking nothing is connected to the extension wiring terminals.

Yes, correct. There are no extension sockets connected, the work was done years ago.

Sure was, we've had several engineers visit the property and they would've spotted if we still had extension wiring connected!

Should I leave the modem connected to the test socket or risk buying another MK4 SSFP?
