Would installing a master filter increase the sync rate when the house only has one jackpoint?

Just wondering if I should get it done

If that jackpoint is the only jackpoint connected in the entire house and the line effectively comes in from the demark point directly to that one socket then a splitter will not help.

Just wanting to confirm you guys are determining the DLM setting you are on by observing the ‘Latency’ and ‘INP’ figures and using that “mini-table” on page 1 of this forum topic?

My lead-in cable runs along a fence from the street to my house, I'm quite keen to replace it with some Gel-Filled Cat5e.  I also don't have an ETP (well, a box anyway).  Old houses aye, gotta love em, lol.  My ADSL2+ sync to the cabinet was really good, so I'm going to have to do some investigating why VDSL is failing to impress me.

Will follow-up with some current statistics tonight.

@Skymax: I've had VDSL2 for a few weeks now, and while the upload speed feels first world, it failed to impress me for gaming ping. Was getting 20ms - 40ms for the first few weeks (to closest speed test services), it stabilised at 20ms last week (after some snap issues), then suddenly down to 5ms - 6ms this week (which makes gaming on Sydney servers much better). So it _may_ improve over time.



I thought DLM had notched me down onto a better profile, but according to snap my DLM profile has never changed (still on EUBAV-VDSL2-1, but I'm unsure what that means). My Fritz!box shows 1ms latency, and I'm presuming I'm on the 8db DLM profile. I haven't done any tweaking as yet.

Essentially I've shaved 15ms ping off the previous best. Can anyone shed some light on the reason behind it if it wasn't a DLM profile change?

Looks like I am:
DLM-6     8ms  2INP

The speed has improved since lunchtime, so that's great  :-)

Upper frequencies are well down though  :-(






What speedtest site do you guys use?

Thanks for that, was just wondering as I seem to get a high number of errors, is this normal?



Iam still in the first 10 day period of having VDSL

The errors you need to worry about are the CRC errors, which don't seem too high to me. The FEC errors are correctable and not counted for the purposes of DLM tuning.

Well... it's been 9 days and I haven't had a DLM change. I'm currently stuck on DLM-4 with 0.23 CRC errors per minute (might be less, it seems to have been stuck on this figure for some time - no CRC errors in the last 15min) and an ES figure of 785.

I was expecting a DLM change before now, but maybe DLM has decided that there are no better profiles to switch to?

What caused DLM to change you off DLM 1 in the first place? Did you have some re-syncs?

I'm not sure tbh, I certainly didn't initiate any resyncs.

Notice any unusual SNR fluctuation in the Statistics? Iv seen mine go as low as -2 dB SNRM. Sometimes this causes a re-sync and the line is back to normal.

I haven't noticed any odd snr figures.

Just noticed these error stats tho:



Looks like I'm getting quite a few errors at times!

The annoying thing is that I got less errors when I was on DLM-1.  The sync rate was a bit lower tho which I think helped.  I guess the only way to lower the sync is to increase the target SNR tho right?
