Re: Any way to increase broadband speed?

With a stupidly long line as yours you really need to be negating the negative affects of that extension wiring.

Finding a way to use the router connected to the NTE with extension wiring dissed off, this should hopefully stabilise things.

Trouble is you need a reset to rid that stuck profile.

Me, Id still be pressing for the SFI visit. Internal wiring sorted, profile reset, maybe even a sorter E side.

I've installed the W9970, plugging it directly into the test socket. It's been connected there for nearly four days without any line drops. So far, there's no improvement in speed. frown

Is it just a matter of waiting patiently for things to improve or is there anything I could try, like switching the modem off overnight to properly reset the connection?

A quick peek at old posts - this was ADSL2+ and so DLM system can take a few weeks to relent and give back speed so its just sit and wait

DLM didn't appear to be letting go its strangle hold on the speed... :'(
Origin meanwhile have agreed to let me go without early exit fees. Decided to go to EE, since our neighbours are getting decent speed with them.

How does their router compare with the W9970?

Just a quick update - the move from Origin Broadband to EE has worked.
We got a Brighbox 1 modem/router, which is Broadcom based.
I tested for wifi strength and the signal from the W9970 seemed to be that little bit stronger I'm using that.
On the day we switched over the sync speed magically increased to 1.5Mbps (1.3Mbps throughout) where it has remained for the past week.
Pleased with the result smile
