Re: Netgear DG834G v3 - compatible with ADSL2?


[re: wannabemedic] [link to this post]
 
Response from AOL:

Please note that the upgrade is being done by batches, about 2000 subscribers at a time. I was unable to provide you the exact date when your line will be upgraded as we have not received an update yet. Rest assured that you will notice the change once this has been rolled out.


(sync speed downstream has today dropped to 5673kbps)

Current line stats:

ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 6516 kbps 440 kbps
Line Attenuation 42 db 13 db
Noise Margin 5 db 20 db

I called AOL Tech Support to ask about the upload speed, I was told that whilst we have AOL Talk and AOL Broadband, because our line is provided by BT, I have to contact them about the upload speed. AOL say they are only responsible for the downsteam speed.

I expressed surprise and was told that it was because AOL were providing broadband over BT's line.

I was also told that the "assigned speed" for the line was 3000kbps down and 500kbps up. Clearly the downstream speed is wrong because I'm getting more than double that.

Anyone know what to do now? Download speed isn't an issue, it's upload speed which is painfully slow and needs to be improved.

Could you log into your router and display the ADSL settings?

What does it say for DSL mode?

Tripe!

For starters, there are two settings available to AOL, "up to 448kbps" and "up to 832kbps" on ADSL. The old Max and Max Premium. Not all ISPs supplied the higher one, and AOL may be one of those, but they are certainly responsible for everything to do with the broadband.

440kbps is a common one for Plusnet customers on the up to 448 option.

On ADSL2+ you should get well over 1000kbps.

That's your DSL Mode setting but not its current status which was what was wanted.

You can't get this from a Netgear's Web interface; you need to do this via TELNET as instructed here: http://www.kitz.co.uk/routers/netgeardg834_interleav...

Re: Netgear DG834G v3 - compatible with ADSL2?


[re: wannabemedic] [link to this post]
 
I was wondering if it was set to g.dmt rather than multi-mode or adsl2+.

Could you try setting adsl2+ in that box and applying. If you can't get a sync I'd guess you have not being switched to ADSL2+ kit.

Duh! V3 doesn't even show DSL Mode Status.

Anyway, I forgot we already knew you were still running on G.DMT.
