Anyway about a month ago i created this thread as was getting disconnects during a storm. Since this storm my speed has gone back down to 7.5mbps and no matter what time of day i reboot i cant get it to sync at the same speeds as before the storm. Whether the storm was the cause of this speed decrease i dont know. Maybe just a coincidence.
These are my stats as of now just as i rebooted this morning to test it:
ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 8823 kbps 1022 kbps
Line Attenuation 38.0 db 18.0 db
Noise Margin 9.00 db 12.0 db
Just a note on those. I have interleaving on and manually set the noise margin to 9db. This was due to having issues years ago and having to up my noise margin to stabilize the line. Those issues have gone now but never bothered to change the noise margin back to 6db (if it arent broke dont fix etc). So although i know the 9db will reduce my speeds, im happy with that as i was still getting 8mbps+ with a noise margin of 9db. Or was until the storm
So any idea what has caused me to loose around 0.5mbps in speed when nothing has changed my end? Errors etc on the line are minimal and quiet line test is clear. Dont have any stats from my router before the storm but sync was around 9300kbps-9800kbps. My only assumtion is there has been an increase in adsl connections on my cab so crosstalk has increased.
