Yes, and he has a signal there ...

0dBm is a legitimate power level, and is NOT zero power. It is also the reading that a lot of routers give in their stats when very little traffic is being passed as there is no signal in a large part of the band.

Have you ever seen a Home Hub reporting a non-zero downstream power level?

But is it the router or is it the connection that's doing it?

All my routers report 0 dB Down Power on my WBC connection. They had positive power when it was LLU.

1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU => 2011: Orange 19 Meg WBC

And for everyones random theories, the truth looks more likely to be a systems failure when setting the initial profile for a line.

To the posters, a resync at the test socket, or with as much of your own wiring should be enough for a good ISP to figure out its something wrong. Also ISP's have access to historical data for a line.

As for Opal, they can do what they want, as they have control of the DSLAM. Also an MSAN is JUST a DSLAM but with potential to provide voice as well as ADSL.
