Strange


[link to this post]
 
Been having some fun changing my wiring, up to today my router was upstairs on an extension. I have now put a switch in its place and moved the router downstairs to the master socket. In this process I have lost half a meg sync since moving to the master socket.

Any ideas why?

More noise sources nearby?

How long before since you last sync'ed, and at what time of day. It's easy to lose 500kbps between mid-day and "dark time" sync's.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 57.1/14.8Mbps @ 600m. - IPv4BQM IPv6BQM

Possibly although upstairs is a studio so lots of PSUs and other equipment. Downstairs just a PC and a few power blocks. Will check DSL cable routing.

Re-sync was about 1630 so just turning dark, will check in daylight hours.

There's another thing I have PhyR and SRA enabled on my router, does BT equipment support these?

SRA, to my knowledge definitely not. It'll drop the connection and resync at a new speed if it needs too, not seamlessly, it'll drop entirely.

PhyR - not sure what it is off the top of my head and too tired to google it right now.

Re-sync during daylight hours gained about 300 kbos, Checked dsl wire routing, not near any power blocks, getting about 17837 now. Used to get well over 18 meg and 19 on LLU, Strange,

The only provider I ever found that supported SRA was the now defunct UK Online. It was very useful on my line at the time which had a long section on poles so saw a fairly high day/night noise difference despite the ringwire being isolated. Not that many routers supported it then and I had to hunt around for one that did - a Billion of some sort iirc.

Have you tried the TEST socket to see what your connection speed is?

This will show you the best speed you can expect - so if things slow down using normal wiring/setup then it shows something's causing a problem.

EDIT: I take it your Default/Target SNRM hasn't changed while your been playing with things?
