Tesco broadband


[link to this post]
 
Hi all,
I today had enough of the constant dropping of wireless connection of our tesco thomson tg580 modems we have had 2 of these.
Anyway today i installed a linksys modem and got all the details to set up from tesco, it has been running great all day.
But tonight it has been connecting 10 mins to 30mins then disconnecting from tesco network then re-connecting, is this normal?
here is a link to some reouts in my modem do they look right to the expert eye..

modem 1

modem 2

any feedback would be great

Don't like the "NOT TRAINED"! Do you know whether you are on ADSL(1) or ADSL2+?

Connect on demand will be a pain, so turn that off so you stay connected all the time and set the time zone correctly too

i have no idea if it's adsl 2 i got a normal bt line should be upto 20mb (yer right) i used to get 13000kbps down stream on sky and BT before coming to Tesco.
this is the first time i have ever set up my own modem.
do i need to call tesco to find out if i am adsl or adsl 2

Wrong ADSL mode and hardware not negotiating would result in zero connection ever.

Dont Tesco supply a modem of their own?

they do but they are absolute pants! all my gear don't like then even on Ethernet cable as well as wireless,

a search on line for Thomson tg580 and Tesco will reveal my dilemma.


when it reset's i get this strange downstream margin?

Then you should be getting nearly 14 Meg Sync.

Peculiar that Down Attn. reduces to 32 dB with ADSL2+ from 37 dB with "NOT TRAINED". Usually it increases by going to ADSL2+.

Well done! An improvement! Looks more realistic.

Tho' you should be getting 11-12 Meg. Wait and hope the NM reduces to 6 dB.
