Re: DSL Error Help

So the DSL did remain connected and it was only the PPP link that went down when they tested the line?

It just that sometimes an incoming phone call or line test can cause the DSL to drop due to a line fault - but that is one of those possibly unlikely opinionated scenarios that may not be scripted laugh

Yes it's certainly holding the connection since EE's intervention, keep an eye on the error rates, when it's convenient, since I don't think we are quite "out of the woods" yet - but I agree generally looking really good in terms of sync speeds and noise margins smile

Cool, thanks smile I'm hoping stabilisation is responsible for a large part of the Errors early on - and they settle down as the days pass by. Is Ping affected by the Stabilisation process? Mine isn't excessively high (between 200 - 250ms) but is normally no higher than 50ms. I'm not complaining about it and it doesn't really affect me, but just wondered why that's shot up.

I'm sure I will run out of questions soon smile

Between 200ms and 250ms is quite long for a fastpath connection.

Can you try 'ping bbc.co.uk' (without the inverted commas) from Windows Command Prompt?

In reply to a post by Vince730i:
And the globe light does indicate if PPP link is up or down smile
The single Globe light doubles up as "In Sync" and "PPP Up"; I think, No Sync = OFF, Sync but no PPP = Flashing, Both = ON.

To where? Seems high.

Try 'ping bbc.co.uk'; I get 11 ms on Fast Path.

Sky once issued a locked but unlockable version of the white DG834GT (I have one). Also a black Sky DG934G which was a locked version of Netgear DG834G v3.

I'm glad you guys are on here to sort out what I mean smile

Tested the ping bcc.co.uk and the result was 97.6ms in not sure why speedtest . net shows it about twice that. Very odd stuff.

I'm going to invest in a Netgear Router as trying to mess around with the old one will only lead me back here with more questions smile

The ping test I used with those results of 200-250ms were to Bristol via Speedtest . net

Just looking at the stats again.

Re: DSL Error Help


[re: Vince730i] [link to this post]
 
Near end error seconds might still be a reason for concern, i.e. 2427 in 259 minutes, but I would imagine that they are at a steady rate rather than in bursts which could cause the DSL to drop.

Ping to bbc.co.uk should really have been much faster which suggests there is an issue with latency.

Problem is now that you are in a situation where the ISP may not be willing to act since your sync speeds and noise margins are really good. See how it goes for the next 24 hours and if the connection holds and throughput speeds are acceptable (especially during your problem Thursday evenings) then you may have to live with the error seconds and slow ping until we can verify the performance of your line with another router/ADSL lead/micro filter in the test socket.
