24mbit ADSL 2+ 500m from the exchange :p *DELETED*


[link to this post]
 
I wrote a really long post but a little voice made me delete it

hrm, web reset plusnet n router after some instab freezes apparant firmware refresh, meanwhile bt engineer came along and told me 69.3/72 score on the line, 500m length to the exchange (slightly less), 2m differential in the lines.

6 days in to a 10 day retrain:

Uptime: 0 days, 18:04:55
DSL Type: ITU-T G.992.5
Bandwidth (Up/Down) [kbps/kbps]: 1,279 / 23,033
Data Transferred (Sent/Received) [GB/GB]: 27.35 / 674.99
Output Power (Up/Down) [dBm]: 12.6 / 0.0
Line Attenuation (Up/Down) [dB]: 8.3 / 13.5
SN Margin (Up/Down) [dB]: 8.1 / 3.0
System Vendor ID (Local/Remote): TMMB / ----
Chipset Vendor ID (Local/Remote): BDCM / IFTN

considered dmt tool /sn margin tweaks on a 2740b I acquired, then I read the next post

really happy with the speeds plus net. someone somewhere (ie plus net) needs to come up with a bb/adsl package where the phone line is cheap but restricted for light/non users of the actual voice comms service over the line

nice one all round on the speeds on the bdcm chipset router though . clap! clerp.

If you are used to playing with the SNRM on O2, be very careful on a BT Wholesale service like you are on now. In half an hour of playing, where the O2 system would ignore what you were doing, you could give yourself Interleaving (that would probably not revert to Fast Path) and a higher -sync-time noise margin.

The result of a higher sync-time margin is to reduce the effectiveness of your tweaking. From a 6dB figure to 3dB is a setting of 50%., but from 9dB which is the next step up that DLM may impose a 50% setting only brings you back to 6dB. If the DLM chose 12dB, then 50% >> 9dB.

Incidentally, anything you can do with DMT you can do with telnet. Scroll down this page. That should apply to any DMT compatible router, though the IP address may be different in the last two triplets.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 56.6/14.1Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

That's cuz you are one of the 10% of users who can get at least 16 Meg, as ASA intended.

It still is, technically! It's just that ISPs can't advertise higher than the min. of what the top 10% can get.

Dunno where the '23 being the max' ever came into it.
