Interleave off for download but on for upload


[link to this post]
 
Hi

I have an adsl max account with idnet, I have recently had interleaving turned off to see if i can improve my latency for gaming. I have been monitoring the line using Router stats and the upload is great I have 0 errors and ping times down to 17ms. But have quite a few errors on download. My question is, is it possible for an isp to turn interleaving on for download and leave it off for uploads ?

Thanks

I sort of assumed that upstream was invariably fast path (i.e. not interleaved). That's how my (Be/O2) line is by default, interleaved down, fast path up.

Some errors on the up & downstream are considered normal on fastpath, and generally these will not have a impact on your connection, providing they are not produced en mass over a very short period, if you are not seeing any issues then i would not be concerned about a few errors

If the DLM hasn't turned it on automatically, I'd leave it be. The odd error is perfectly normal.

The general answer with a BTWS line is 'NO'

Either interleaving is on or off. at the moment I've not managed to get BTWS to make any changes to the up/down or the INP depth settings that are 'outside of the normal DLM banding'

OLO's normally have a (more flexible) better way of doing DLM if they even run it.
