Right guys, firstly thanks for your help.
As suggested forced router to adsl, and touch wood, no drops (dispite plenty of land line use) for 1 day 22 hours. A record since upgrade!
After much cajoling I've managed to get some form of engineers report. I'm on my third pair apparently. Does a pair consist of D+E?
The first engineers visit changed out the cable from my master socket to the pole because there was two bad joins on it (next to my house) and it wouldn't stretch for a re-termination at the pole.
Does any of this make sense? I got most of the info off an indian somewhere.
Speed as indicated by the hub is right now 656kbps up and 760kbps down (still seams the wrong way) however internet speed tests are coming in at 230kbps and 420 kbps ish.
latest BT answer is to rebuild my profile again, with one last BT engineer visit booked for 12 days after the profile rebuild.
Wish I could get mobile broadband here!!
