BT Infinity 2


[link to this post]
 
I had a faulty face plate a few months ago which I noticed because I was getting regular disconnects.
I'd not noticed much difference to my connection after fixing the fault and if it wasn't for my slow upload speeds via Chrome I wouldn't have noticed that my download ip profile had dropped by 5mb, was 77.5 now 72.5 frown
Is there anyway to get back to full speed?

Probably not * ...

Do you have line stats from before and after?

* There is one possible way - go and cut the phone lines of all your neighbours. No line, no broadband thus no crosstalk.

Line 8: 6.7

That suggests you have some spare capacity. So actually yes you might be able to. It could be that your line resynced at a "high noise" time. Leave it alone overnight and try a manual resync at around 9:00 tomorrow.

Turn power OFF to the Hub, then disconnect then line. Wait a few minutes, power up the Hub and allow it to boot and stabilise, say 2 minutes. Reconnect the line, and get the new stats.

How long since you replaced the faceplate? (I'm assuming it has stopped the disconnects).

It's possible the DLM has turned on interleaving for your line due to the disconnects and probable errors as well that you weren't aware of. If the errors are also cured it can take a few weeks for the interleaving to be turned off. If it does that, you should return to full speed.

If there is anything preventing that removal, such as ongoing high levels of errors, then you are stuck with it unless the cause of them can be found. You would need an HG612 modem to reach the error statistics. Let's see what your answer to my opening question is smile.

It does look as though you are getting more noise on the line - possibly from inside your house or crosstalk from other users. Attenuation should not vary whereas SNR/noise margin will. It will sync at 6dB although immediately after sync that can go up or down slightly.

Just make sure all of your internal wiring is in good condition and if possible the distance from socket to modem is as short as possible.

The only thing that has changed on my internal wiring as such is the fact that I'm no longer using a face plate at all just a filter straight into the master socket, the router is plugged straight into the filter via the modem wire that came with it.

If it is powered up, it would be interesting to turn it off and remove its power plug from the mains. The power plugs can put out a lot of electro-noise.

The power plug from a Sky box should create no appreciable noise. The Sky box has an internal PSU and therefore the power lead is a standard lead with no electronics so very unlikely to cause noise (essentially just 3 wires and a fuse).

That could of been down to the down time while you fitted the new filtered face plate.
When I get bad speeds I power down our HH4 and wait 5 to 10 mins before powering back up and it seems to resolve itself.

I wonder if there is still a source of interference within your house that is causing problems with the upper part of the spectrum. If the potential Upstream is 20 and you are consistently getting just 12 then it could be possible.

Have you tried turning OFF and unplugging everything else in the house apart from the Modem/Hub and PC? Then running another test. If that returns 12Mbps it would suggest external interference or noise but if you get 18Mbps then you will need to find out what causes the drop.

BT can, but it depends on who you talk to.
When I get huge speed loss due to faults on my line caused by rain, I just get in contact with BTCare via their link and they just reset my SNR back to 6.0dB and our router disconnects and re-syncs up using the new SNR value.

But like I said it depends on who you talk to, BT India don't reset the connection, however when speaking local BT Support they have reset our connection every time when our SNR has been reset.

Saying that, this is for ADSL 2+.

I wouldn't rely on the BT Speedtest giving accurate results in particular on the upstream side
I have seen it report figures like that , but some other speedtests and uploads via FTP provide results closer to the 20mbps sync rate,. typically 18-19mbps

After a router restart and Kishalay doing so called tests they ask my to disconnect all devices from the HH apart from my wired iMac and get me to do speed tests which obviously are satisfactory to what the actual HH is connected at, but obviously I know the profile has been lowered but I can't seem to drum that into them!!

This was the last message I got from them: Ok now that we have all the details I am writing a report and raising it to my tier two, then I will get the slots available.

In reply to a post by jorkila:
Kishalay Banerjee : OK the earliest slot I can get for you is for the 10th is 9:30 to 11:30

I won't be holding my breath!!
Is that an engineer visit?

Will a dsl filter have a detrimental effect on my connection as apposed to a filtered face plate or they pretty much the same thing?

Depends on whether the DSL filter has a faulty component, i.e. it is one of those things that you should try swapping out.

A filter with no extension wiring should be no problem.

Probably nothing.

DLM is in the control of Openreach and usually only gets manually reset after an engineer visit.

The Openreach DLM does relent if a line improves, just takes a few weeks. Getting a manual reset might help for a while, but likely since the DLM is running the same algorithm that unless a line has improved it will seek down to the same sorts of speeds.

No extensions and just the one socket, the only reason it would have been seen as a fault would be because I had a faulty fridge freezer which caused the electric to trip half a dozen times or more in one day so fingers crossed it should sort itself out, just have to give it longer I guess!!
