ADSL24 dropping all the time


[link to this post]
 
I've just moved to ADSL24 LLU and my connection is dropping all the time and I'm getting a bit fed up.

When it eventually reconnects, the sync speed is all over the place.

I am 400m from the exchange and was previously with BT where I had a faultless and rock-solid connection for over 4 years.

Any help would be welcome.

I've been unable to connect for the last two hours but finally back on. \0/

My router is a Belkin F5D8636 and I took screengrabs of the various sync speeds.

Belkin's are awful.

I would first try a better router as from the stats, you either have a line issue (very low attenuation, very poor sync rate and stupidly high, fluctuating SNR), a router issue, or something else that is connected causing problems.

Even on the last image where you are seeing 13db attenuation and 12Mb sync, that should be far higher.

I had a feeling you were going to say that. =^>

I've had enough of the constant disconnections and will be applying for my MAC code tomorrow.

Moving to ADSL24 is the worst move I ever made.

Did you try a new router?

You went from ADSL1 to ADSL2+ which can be less stable on some lines.

You'll likely have the same problem with another ADSL2+ provider. Did you try a different router?

You really haven't supplied any information which would apportion any blame to ADSL24.

When you get a chance, purchase a secondhand netgear dg834 online (you would do will to start on auction sites, they're ten a penny) and give that a go.

I'd concur with the point that belkin routers seem to be worse than their competitors, at least from my experience with them.

Belkin used to be good, but I have had the same experiences recently.

I find Netgear to be a good router, easier interface too.
