new connection stats up speed low


[link to this post]
 
Hi all, my son has just connected (yesterday Sat.) with PN using PN router, but the stats look a bit iffy for the up speed. He has a new ADSL Nation faceplate at the master socket, with an existing upstairs extn. socket where the router will go next to PC, this extn. he wired to the unfiltered B & A terminals on ANation faceplate as no phones will be using this extn. However there must be still other wiring issues as the extension is dead, so for now the router is in master socket, with the extn socket still connected to B,A.

Thruput on TBB test is low 6306 d, 371 up. I said he should pull out the wires from B,A, until he has time to sort it all out,and see if up speed goes up, but he is a bit wary of BT's MadMax profile system changes, esp in first 10 days. Should he pull the wires out B,A,? I said I would enquire for him as he is out till this evening. I also think the down power is low, I had this once with dodgy wiring.

Thanks

A few clear photographs of every socket and the wiring connections inside each will be worth a thousand words.

If, as you say, your son's attempt at wiring a broadband extension fails to work then revert the changes now. There is no point in waiting.

Well from the stats posted there doesn't seem to be any reason why you would not expect to see the normal 84%+ throughput , if you could post some more stats after say at least 24 hrs sync , to see what the error rate is like, the only other thing that would affect throughput from your side is the MTU being set correctly in the router, or something wrong with the router it's self, but it's more than likely a bt(pn issue at the exchange

At a guess your problem is either a stuck IP profile of 7150kbps (normal max on ADSL1) or the Plusnet mirror of it - Current Line Speed https://portal.plus.net/my.html?action=data_transfer...

Thanks all, I'll talk to him later.

The daisy chain extensions were already there, with cables run in the walls as with most new builds. On my advice he had all the faceplates off and just connected 2 and 5, as the installers had all six wired up, doh. He was going to use the upstairs ext. for the router.

I'll get him to pull the extn off the B and A terminals and get some stats from him, BTW he lives 190mls away,otherwise I'd go myself,lol.

thanks

That doesn't bode well. Wiring by a electrician as part of a new build is (unfortunately) often sub-optimal for a broadband service. I would say that an annotated set of clear photographs of the wiring at each socket is definitely the order of the day. wink

Will endeavor to get this. Nearly at 24hrs so will wait for stats. In meantime before he connected to master socket he said theres no continuity on any of the pairs (he is an AV technician BTW so does a lot of wiring) but he forgot to dis the B & A connection before syncing for the 1st time. Has also now found another extn. socket behind a fixed wardrobe, guess thats where prob is.

On a personnel note just noticed I am on G.992.1 Annex A, usually G.992.5 Annex A, is there any difference.

thanks again

Yes,

G.992.1 aka G.DMT (ADSL) up to 8Meg

G.992.5 aka ADSL2+ up to 24Meg

In reply to a post by dslguru:
Hi all, my son has just connected (yesterday Sat.) with PN using PN router, but the stats look a bit iffy for the up speed.

The upstream sync rate is 448kbps according to your stats. We cap the upstream at this speed at the Wholesale level. It can be uncapped by following the instructions under the 'Key' section here.

In reply to a post by dslguru:
Thruput on TBB test is low 6306 d, 371 up.

That does seem low considerign the downstream sync speed. What does a BT Speedtest tell him?
