I would like some help to see where my connection issues are.
I am with TalkTalk. I have used their support forums and they have been helpfull. But before I go back I want to check to see if I can rule out my end. The issues that I have been talking about on the support forums have been line speed issues, or not to the speed I would expect on my line stats. Currently connected at 3995 kbps with a Line Attenuation of 42.5 and a Noise Margin of 12.45, Looking at kitz speed calc the line should be syncing around 8000 kbps. They have reset the profile a few times but it usually drops back down.
I have been swapping out the two router that I have, the one TT supply and my netgear DG834G. Currently the netgear is plugged in via the master socket.
The issue that currently making the connection to be very annoying is that it seams that the connection appears to drop for up to 1 minute. When I check the router it says that it is still connected. I do play a mmo or try to and it disconnects often because of the lost connection. Also web pages time out, Spotify stops playing etc..
My PC is connected via wireless usb adapter with a fair to good signal strength. I have also used homeplugs but that does not help. But I know they are not very reliable as another appliance can interfere with them.
I did a tracert with this result and hop 2 is what shouts out. I am unsure if hop 2 is my machine to the router or the router to TT.
