Hi I have just moved my computer to the other side of the room , my speeds have dropped to around zero ???????

I have since been switching between ethernet cable and directly plugging the router into the main telephone socket with wireless usb adapter

Im with BT option 3 and the sync speeds should be 8128 up and 448 down but for some reason , since moving the comp my netgear dg834g v3 says 120 up and 130 down ??

bt.speedtester says i have a 135 kb profile , whereas before it was around 7100 ( somewhere near that mark anyway)

line attenuation 25db down , 6.5 up
noise margin 15db down , 15 up

im using windows vista..

Any info on what could be wrong or what i can do ?
many thanks

and now these stats are showing....

ADSL Link........Downstream...Upstream
Connection Speed..7712 kbps...448 kbps
Line Attenuation....25 db.......6.5 db
Noise Margin.........15 db.......26 db

Why would moving the comp screw up my profile (which still reads 135 ?

By the way , I have main box in kitchen with this setup .....

router>telephone cable>filter>main box

plus the filter has an extension cable running to the room which has a cordless dect phone attached

also , the main box in kitchen has a wired connection inside which runs to a box in the living room with a cordless dect phone attached

If your router is plugged into the same socket as before I'm not sure why this has happened but as you are now syncing at 7712 your profile should rise within 3 days.

I think the reason your sync has dropped from 8128 is that you somehow, inadvertantly, introduced some noise to your line which has resulted in your target noise margin increasing, this has had the effect of making your sync speed drop. If this is the case, it could take several weeks to get your full sync back.

Do you know what your noise margin was before with the 8128 sync?

No I dont know what my noise margin was before...

Just would like to add what Ive done in the past days since i started the thread .....

Ive changed filters and extension cable .... waited now around 10 days since the sync/speeds dropped , below you can see im now back upto 8128 downstream.
My IP Profile on bt.speedtester changing now and again ( i run a speed test every other day ) its now at 5500 , a few days back it was acctually at 7000, but has either been 5500 and 6500.
Why does the profile keep changing ?

I'll run a test just now to see what its reads at... ive just checked your post and you say it can take a few weeks to get the full sync back , is this the case with the IP Profile ?

"...ive just checked your post and you say it can take a few weeks to get the full sync back , is this the case with the IP Profile ?"

No the profile only takes 3 days to update. the fact that it raised then dropped again suggest your sync dropped at some point then picked up again. The profile doesn't drop unless your sync drops.

These are the profile brackets -


288 - 575 250 Kbps
576 - 1151 500 Kbps
1152 - 1727 1.0 Mbps
1728 - 2271 1.5 Mbps
2272 - 2847 2 Mbps
2848 - 3423 2.5 Mbps
3424 - 3999 3.0 Mbps
4000 - 4543 3.5 Mbps
4544 - 5119 4.0 Mbps
5120 - 5695 4.5 Mbps
5696 - 6239 5.0 Mbps
6240 - 6815 5.5 Mbps
6816 - 7391 6.0 Mbps
7392 - 7967 6.5 Mbps
7968 - 8127 7.0 Mbps
8128 7.15 Mbps

A 5.5 Meg sync is in the bracket 6240 - 6815 so it suggests your line resynced at that speed in the last 3 days.

Do you normally leave the router switched on all the time?

.....

I havnt checked the stats since a few weeks back , I see the downstream is only 7648 and still hasnt reached 8128 ... is it still a case of waiting for the sync to rise fully , or ?

and how do these look ...

ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 7648 kbps 448 kbps
Line Attenuation 25 db 6.5 db <--------
Noise Margin 13 db 26 db <-------

Thanks for your help so far

Your sync speed won't increase on its own without a reboot of the router. If you reboot the router now does the sync speed stay the same?

I wonder if you would benefit from double filtering the phone attached to the same socket as the router. Instead of plugging in one filter, plug another filter into the first using the phone socket on the first but plug the router into the first filter. This can help cut out any interference from the DECT phone.

Do you have the new style NTE5 BT master socket, the one with the removeable faceplate? If so have you checked that only wires 2 and 5 are connected inside. If there are any other wires connected you can safely remove them.

I note you have two DECT phones connected, can you not run them both off one base station, this would eliminate the need for the extension and could help reduce any interference.

Ok , here I am again ... Ive been having some personal problems but I would like to try and get this sorted...

The resyncing of my router has been up and down for a while , but before I say about that I wanto to try and explain my setup.I was going to plug a filter into the test socket and this is what I found...

Setup:-

Telephone pole behind the house ---> telephone wire runs to back of house from the pole , leads to a box in the kitchen ( I thought this would be the main telephone box ?? ) but i removed the faceplate , whole face removes to find just a shell behind it , the telephone wire is cut , one end has 2 blue wires with white dashes leading to a clear plug , and , another clear plug that runs to the livingroom with white cable and blue dashes , in the kitchen behind the faceplate #2 has a green cable with white dashes and #5 has white cable with green dashes ...

the cable that runs to the living room connects to a box in which i can remove the bottom half of the face , i see a windows with wires behind and a plug for a phone ( this is the test socket ?? ) behind the face is has a phone type plug that is to be plugged into the test socket , there is #2 cable connected green with white dashes and #5 white with green dashes

I thought the main phone socket should be in the kitchen with the extenstion box in the livingroom , seems back-to-front to me.

One day just a few weeks back I was having changing sync speeds on the router , I have tried a few options , plugging the router into and extension in the room with ethernet cable connected , then , straight into the test socket in the livingroom with wireless signal but the sync was changing between 7000 and 8000 , i then transferred the router to the box in the kitchen with filter and suddenly the sync was 8128 and a 6000 IP Profile , after a few days the profile jumped to 7150. It stayed this way for around a week , until sunday , I switched on the comp and noticed the sync was 7468 ... I havnt touched the router until today , i reset to factory condition and upgraded the firmware ....

shere are the stats....
