Hi there,

Log into your router by opening your Internet browser and enter h t t p://

Remove the spaces between the htt etc.

Once you are logged into your router, there should be a part at the bottom with a tab called SHOW STATISTICS, click on this and tell me what your DOWNSTREAM noise margin is.

jus logged into router config and the stats are:

downstream 160kps
upstream 448kps

Those are your speeds, not your noise margins

MTU should be 1432 for AOL/TalkTalk - which ISP were you with before? The settings may need changing click here

Im with AOL wireless broadband have been with AOL for years, not on Talk Talk internet. Been on AOL help page and system msg on there sayin that the system is havin problems and outages are possible. This has been happening to me for a few days now and when a call comes in on landline my internet connection cuts out.

Have checked all cables and filter boxes etc

"when a call comes in on landline my internet connection cuts out" - wiring or signal problem.

160kps is very slow. I presume you are on an up to 8 meg package?

What is your noise margin?

Follow my earlier instructions to find it out.
