Now Iíve upgraded to ADSL 2+, Iím cautious, switching off only when thereís thunder/lightning or a strong Met Office prediction of the same. Iíve switched off three times in the last two months and each time Iíve resynched at a slightly higher line rate. My last resych will take me from 15 M to 16 M if I could maintain it but the weather front, the Met, and just looking at the sky suggest Iím going to have to switch off again soon.
Iíd like to preserve my router, other equipment and, of course, that all importants bRAS Profile. I have surge protectors all over the place but Iím not keen on relying on the in the case of an overhead or nearby storm.
The jury appears to be permanently ďoutĒ on switching of routers irrespective of reason. Iíd welcome options re thunder/ lightning storms.
PS The line is stable with no sync loss and downstream SNR circa 4-3 dB.
