A quick update …
After 3 faults logged and acted upon, all the line faults between my house and the cabinet have been fixed. It did need me to keep raising the fault after each one was "cleared/fixed". The hub is now completely stable and has not dropped the line for over 2 weeks now. It was dropping say 30 times a day! When doing a remote "line test", no fault was found - but when they did the tests at the point the line entered the house, then a very significant fault was shown. Internal wiring checked and was just fine.
My speeds though have not recovered to anywhere near what they have been.
6.1 dB noise margins up and down. Line is 80/20. DSL Check (high) shows 54.3 up and 11.1 down.
The BT speed tester run by the advisor showed 43 to hub and 41 to PC via the homeplugs.
BT going to try a hard reset now and see what happens. Still a far cry from my 66/14 way back in 211!!!
Up for renewal in December - so do I go Virgin Media M200, with 213 down and 20 up? Trouble is after 1 year it jumps from £31 to £54 pm! Of course, my 200meg homeplugs will need to be all changed to take advantage of the high speed!
[Maybe they need to be changed anyway!!]
At least we have got to the bottom of most of my woes!
