Hey guys,


a few months back I had a roadside cabinet installed nearby, and I got connected to it(well atleast I think I did - my sync rates increased significantly etc), since then, I've had this problem:


DSL Status: Up
DSL Modulation Mode: ADSL2+
DSL Path Mode: FAST
Downstream Rate: 17530 Kbps
Upstream Rate: 164 Kbps
Downstream Margin: 12 db
Upstream Margin: 2147483647 db
Downstream Line Attenuation: 15
Upstream Line Attenuation: 5
Downstream Transmit Power: 0
Upstream Transmit Power: 0


I'm current;y on a Orcon FS/128 plan. Any idea what the hell could be causing this? I've also tried two routers, on the other router, it shows my upstream SNR as a negative number, is this some issue with the way the cabinet has been configured or what?

Side note: Changed off Orcon the other day, this problem has completely disappeared, 12dB Upstream Margin now ;O
