Looks fine - not many FEC Events though considering the router is showing Interleaved. However I don't know anything about the BT router so I guess anything is possible smile

Only thing I've noticed so far, I am seeing a lot of these kind of message in the logs:

OUT: BLOCK [9] Packet invalid in connection (TCP 192.168.1.74:55229->107.21.98.40:80 on ppp0)

Sometimes, and I mean sometimes, this causes a web page to stop loading half way through and need a refresh... looking at the BT forums seems this is a known issue with the newest firmware

Hey, if I had 100% control over the broadband, trust me I would be buying some proper professional equipment from Cisco or the likes tongue

Well, there's not much to say. Not much has changed, as you'd expect from no re-syncs in that period. All you can say is that it has managed to stay up for 26 hours. No great shakes!

NO ! They are too fussy by half to be used on a 'normal' residential set up.

Ok, about 1hr 45mins ago another re-sync happened, and it seems we are now on fast path laugh

Obviously all that uptime yesterday was required for the DLM to test whether or not the line could support it, here are stats so far:

Connection Information

Line state: Connected
Connection time: 0 days, 01:45:42
Downstream: 16.06 Mbps
Upstream: 1.156 Mbps

ADSL Settings

VPI/VCI: 0/38
Type: PPPoA
Modulation: G.992.5 Annex A
Latency type: Fast
Noise margin (Down/Up): 9.0 dB / 6.5 dB
Line attenuation (Down/Up): 6.2 dB / 3.3 dB
Output power (Down/Up): 19.9 dBm / 11.7 dBm
FEC Events (Down/Up): 0 / 0
CRC Events (Down/Up): 0 / 0
Loss of Framing (Local/Remote): 0 / 0
Loss of Signal (Local/Remote): 0 / 0
Loss of Power (Local/Remote): 0 / 0
HEC Events (Down/Up): 0 / 0
Error Seconds (Local/Remote): 8 / 73


A ping from my server (connected over ethernet) to google.com comes back at 12ms laugh

However, speed tests are now only showing up to 10.5Mbps frown Any idea why this is and any way it can be improved?
