Re: FTTC DLM after No Dial Tone Fault


[re: maniac886] [link to this post]
 
I'll give it 14days... speedtests are topping 20meg at the moment, as interleaving has been put on to the highest level and DLM has capped my line at 54000kbps

Even though the max attainable is showing still at 102Mb



DLM is a nightmare. ISPs need more control

I did find that on a couple of occasions I had to reset the OR modem for the I.P profile to go back to normal. If you do consider doing this I would wait a week otherwise the reset may be seen as a fault.

Unlikely.

Three of four times an hour might be chancing your luck (though the official figure is rumoured to be ten), but a lot of people would be delighted at one disconnect a week!


edit- Also don't forget that a lot of people turn their modems and routers off every night.

My V1 modem has done surprisingly well, I don't think I have switched mine off for 6 months!

Mine suffered the indignity of a power cycle about a month ago... when I accidentally knocked the power plug out frown

Otherwise like you- my V1 is still going strong after 18 months (though with occasional switching off). It runs a touch warmer at 80/20 than it did on 40/10 but still no more than tepid.

Nobody has tried to update it yet*, and I'm sure as hell not going to remind them- if it ain't broke, don't fix it!


* Fingers crossed.

Same here, I have not received the dreaded letter from Kelly Communications, I am hoping to put my replacement off for as long as possible or until my current modem dies!

Where's that from Bill?

I agree it was set at 10 in the early days of ADSL Max, not rumoured but documented in a SIN at the time, and we have never seen any official variation from that, but that refers to the BT Wholesale ADSLx DLM. The Openreach one is, as you know, completely different, and managed to wake up the daft people maintaining the WBC one, though not the IPStream one.

I haven't seen anything giving a comparable figure for the OR one.

I honestly can't remember, it's not even impossible that I'm getting confused with the old BTw ADSLx one crazy

But even if the number is wrong, I think the principle is sound- it'll take a lot more than one disconnect a week to register as a fault!

IIRC, shortly after I got FTTC, I was playing around and did several modem restarts in a short period without the DLM throwing its toys out of the pram. I'm not sure of how many and whether the DLM has changed since then (it would have been well over a year ago), but there would have been at least two or three within an hour.

I've seen the Kelly vans around here, but I've just thought- it may be that they think I've already got a new one.

A while back (but before the mass swap-out started) my ISP had to arrange an engineer visit 'cos I'd lost sync. He turned up with a new modem as that was the usual reason, but his test kit couldn't get sync either so that wasn't the problem... turned out the DSLAM in the cabinet had fallen over.

I suggested he didn't bother to swap the modem as there was nothing wrong with it and he was agreeable, but it's possible it still got logged as a swap-out. Either way I'm keeping schtum grin

Well the interleaving has came off itself this time, came down in 2 steps, from 27ms first hop to 17ms now back to 11ms


Hoping this 54,000 sync cap does the same soon.
