Ok I posted a thread months ago bout connection drop outs. At time every1 was havin problems with AOL which is my ISP. Our phone service was changed to Talk Talk and our slow d/l speeds/connection drop outs continued.
On ringin AOL tech support countless times they suggested we switch back to BT service which I did starting 22nd Jan. They(AOL) said that we should be gettin 4/5mb per sec, done online speed test:
d/l rate: 0.09mb per sec u/l rate: 2mb per sec
BT said they tested the line and its fine and AOL said our connection is fine also. Personally I think they have capped our d/l speeds.
Netgear DG834G connection status:
downstream: 160kps upstream: 418kps
could it be router config, or with changing landline service or jus AOL as usual???
The line attenuation gives you an idea of how far from the exchange you are - toe lower the figure the better. At 59db you're never going to get lightning fast speeds, although you should still be connecting faster than you are.
The noise margin is low and may suggest why you keep getting dropouts. Is your router plugged directly into the phone socket or are you running it off an extension. Ideally what you need to do is plug the router directly into the master socket, disconnect any extension wiring and see if the noise margin comes up. If it does it's starting to indicate an issue with the house telephone wiring.
Am just trying to help and someone with more detailed technical understanding may want to add more.
