Thanks guys. Stats look like;
DSP Firmware Version A2pB025f.d22k
DMT Status No Defect
Operational Mode G.DMT
SNR Margin(Upstream) 16.0
SNR Margin(Downstream) 10.7
Line Attenuation(Upstream) 31.5
Line Attenuation(Downstream) 61.0
Using master socket makes no difference.
Spending MORE money on another router, speculatively isn't going to go down well.
I was getting way better results than neighbours due to chopping bell wire and tweaking sn margin but now it's dire.
I'm hoping it's something that will sort itself out if I leave it alone. Experience says that exchange changes can take up to ten days, never mind the three that we're often told. Trouble is I didn't stand in the patience queue while I was waiting to be born!
I think I'm just looking for a shoulder to cry on really. It's just frustrating that something is wrong and I don't seem to be able to do anything about it. It's like the exchange has decided not to let my sn margin fall below about 10.
I will try very hard to be patient, leave it alone and let it settle down.
Thanks for you sympathy and suggestions.
