Drop in SNR with Netgear


[link to this post]
 
With my BT-HH2 i get these stats:

Downstream Attenuation : 11.5db
Upstream Attenuation: 7.0db

Downstream SNR: 17db
Upstream SNR: 23db

With a Netgear DG834v4 (With DG Team Firmware) I get this:

Downstream Attenuation : 11.5db
Upstream Attenuation: 7.0db

Downstream SNR: 11.8db
Upstream SNR: 23db

With the DG834v4 Running stock Netgear firmware I get this:

Downstream Attenuation : 11.5db
Upstream Attenuation: 7.0db

Downstream SNR: 13db
Upstream SNR: 23db

Connection is 8128kbps Down and 448kbps down for all
My question is this, Where has the other 4db - 6db of SNR gone??

Could be the netgear is dialling back the power a bit as it isn't needed to get full sync (and dialling the power back could help reduce crosstalk/interference between lines). Or it could just be they are reporting differently. Only useful comparison would be on ADSL2+ to see if there is any difference between their capabilities at using the "spare" margin.
