Re: Infinity Power Cycle


[re: MHC] [link to this post]
 
In reply to a post by MHC:
I'm not sure ... with the modem connected there will still be sync and the line characteristics monitored and it should not need a modem.

I can disconnect my router, connect a PC to port2 of the modem, power up and I can see all of the line stats, sync &c. Anything which is monitoring the line condition does not need to know the login/user details, just eh circuit number and should maintain the database on that basis.


Did you hack your modem to see those details, or could you get them some other way? Which modem do you have?

I understand that if you run a second ethernet cable from modem lan 2 to a lan port on the router, you can see the modem as 192.168.1.1 without moving your PC connections around.

I think you've misunderstood my post smile. (And your second "modem" I take to be "router").

Given that the OR DLM definitely does not have a 10-day initial period, but only a 2-day one, turning it off after that can have no effect on the line conditioning.

So I was merely saying that if the router is turned off as you suggest, the modem might as well be turned off as well.

I think you are looking at a standard interleaving adjustment there Andue. Maybe just the depth, as opposed to turning it off, as I'd expect a bigger drop unless it was already minimal.

Both of my Huawei modems have the modified software!

Yes, you can run a cable from modem to router and then see it on the network. However, it is better to allocate a different IP address - which I have had to do as I don't use the 192.168.1.xxx address block and mine have different addresses from each other too.

Edited. The only reason I was suggesting it, is if the OP was still unsure even with all the information and advice, then leaving just the modem on will maintain the link and will only take a small amount of power.

What do you mean when you say that your connection 'noticeably improved'? How do you back this? And what stat is this based? Did you have any issues/problems prior to the 10th day which noticeable disappeared?... If you're talking about speed, well I am already running near 75/15 and if my speed will still improve, then I'm happy to leave these on whilst I'm away.

Just leave it on. It won't combust into flames I'm sure and it uses barely any power

I've had a router plugged in behind my fridge 24/7 always.

That's amazing. A very reliable router that never needed a reset.

Which router is that ?

The Sky provided router. It's the N one released in August.

Why would a router need a reboot. If I get ANY router that doesn't last literally months and months without needing a reboot I bin it / sell it.

I expect it to stay on 24/7. It plugs in with my fridge so is only turned off when there's a power cut / some electrical work.

7 of us use the sky router with 7 laptops, 3 iPhones, 4 blackberries, 2 iPads, 3 wifi printers, a sky wifi receiver and a wifi tv, ps3, wii and an xbox. No issues.

I have had over 3000 hours of uptime before a reset and absolutely no noticeable slowdown.

The home hub is very stable too from what I gather?

Also my line started on 60mbps and over the 10 days went to the full 80 mbps. I think it hit 80 on around the 3rd day though and stayed there.
