Me too. I use the 8800NL in straight ADSL mode and, using a deliberately slugged download rate (to keep the line up and running and fairly stable; it's a long line), I'm getting the following error stats:
Super Frames 0
SF errors 25595
RS words 0
RS correctable errors 0
RS uncorrectable errors 0
HEC errors 38500
OCD errors 167
LCD errors 167
Total cells 1623900284
Data cells 101747836
Bit errors 2298788
Total ES 14220
Total SES 92
Total UAS 0
Download sync speed is 4064K bps, upload sync speed 544K bps.
System Up Time 43 days, 23 hrs.
Interleaving is on, at depth 1.
I have to confess I've no idea what most of these abbreviations stand for and how significant each one is, for the system up time thus far. I suspect that some of these will be more relevant than others.
If I take my figure of 2298788 for Bit errors and the time for which my 8800 has been running this session, by simple computation I get an average error rate of 37.1 errors per minute. That's more than twice
the error rate you're getting, Sto. Whether this signifies a good result or instead a bad one I've no idea. And are these uncorrected bit errors anyway? Anyone know? With ADSL, are we to assume that all detected
errors end up as corrected
Sto, have you run the Bit Error Test? Just below where these stats are shown in the 8800's GUI there's a BER test button. If you run that for the standard 20 secs, what sort of result do you get? Zero bit errors? I get zero. However, if I run the test for anything longer than that, the results rapidly worsen.
All of this begs the question as to what constitutes an acceptable bit error rate.
