@XRaySpeX How did you work out I'm only going to get 7Mbps at 6db?
= 5792K + (5792K - 5184K) / (15dB - 12dB) * (12dB -6dB) = 7008K

N.B. I'm discounting the 4672K reading taken at Mon 11-Feb-13 17:18:17 cuz it had then been up for 9 days and, therefore, the 16.6 dB NM isn't the Target NM. But even if I didn't it works out more or less the same. I think 4M2 overlooked this NM and for all we know the target for that reading was 18 not 15 dB.

The real problem will occur if you ever went ADSL2+. You have no spare NM to soak up to take you to the upper reaches of ADSL2+ that your line deserves.

How did you guess tongue I have a dangle filter plugged into the test socket, with the router in one of its ports and the docking station for a cordless phone in the other.

The filter is the latest one which we were given from Tesco, we used to use an older one but Tesco suggested it be changed. Our router is a Thomson TG582n which Tesco sent us when we moved to our current broadband package.

We don't have any other routers to test with it, but we do have of course the old filter and a couple of spare DSL leads too.

What would people suggest I do here?

Sorry, I'm starting to get a little lost in this long thread, but I worked from a 15.6 SNRM reading on Sun 03-Feb-13 01:25:22 smile

Cordless phones have been know to cause problems...I had a faulty one once on an extension/dangle filter and it caused all sorts of broadband SNRM/sync issues. I think it wasn't charging the batteries properly - it was cheap so just binned it.

Might just possibly be the cordless phone causing problems...

Me too! Yes, his dad rebooted it 12 hours earlier when it had a NM of about 15 dB smile
