Re: Brightbox constantly drops connection


[re: rawpilot] [link to this post]
 
In reply to a post by rawpilot:
Stream Type Actual Data Rate
Upstream 448 (Kbps.)
Downstream 2848 (Kbps.)
Defect/Failure Indication
Operation Data Upstream Downstream
Noise Margin 20.0 dB 1.3 dB


I would ask them to up your noise margins,
With an attenuation of 48dB you really don't want the SNR dropping to 1.3dB

As others have said try going in to the test socket and checking the line stats then.
Leave it in the test socket for 72 hours and monitor the noise margins.

Thanks for the replies Guys.

I have got EE to check the line and they say its OK. I did the BT Quiet Line and it sounds OK. So when I get a chance I'll plug into the Main BT socket.

The problem I have with that is my PC is connected to the Brightbox via Ethernet (and I don't have a wireless card in it) but the Main BT socket is at the other side of the house.

I still wonder why the 2Wire copes fine with the line as it is and always re-connects itself but the Brightbox just gives up and doesn't seem to bother to re-connect.

Would always be best moving to the master socket.
Get your self a set up Power line adapter or a wireless card.

These are ok.

Or depending on the wiring in the house you might want to get AC Pass Through adapters.

You don't want to run the adapter through any sort of surge protection to the Pass Through ones might be better.

I have AT&T digital and Dish, and BritBox constantly drops from our network as well. If it lasts 60 seconds, itís a miracle. This is a recent development. For a long time, BB worked fine. Now it is useless. Iím going to have to drop the subscription. It doesnít work.
