So this is what my line stats currently look like.





Now when I was with Orcon, the had me on a line profile which decreased the downstream noise margin to 6dB. At this noise margin I had syncs speeds about 2-3mbps higher.

Now I've tried talking to Telstraclear about it, but they reckon from their end their software doesn't allow them to decrease the noise margin to under 9dB.

Since they refuse or don't have the tools that Orcon had to do this, is it possible from my end to change it ?

Router is a Dynalink RTA1025WE


Cheers.

No, it's not. The question you're asking is like asking "It is possible to change the tones the exchange accepts to make a phonecall"

Sorry :)




I hate you.

I remember reading a year or so ago about some program that can modify settings on certain routers to increase sync speeds. I think this worked on broadcom based routers. Was hoping to find something along these lines.

If its not possible then that's ok

Well, it's always nice to be corrected.

I had no idea such a tool existed to hack on these little boxes. Next time I won't post something so authoritative, might save me looking like such a tool!

I've tried tried this on our RTA1320 - it doesn't let me do anything with the blank tab though - just beeps and goes back to the first tab.

EDIT: You have to go into misc options and enable that tab. Then it works :)




I hate you.

Wow, that's pretty cool, just doubled my internet speed by doing almost nothing!

Woops, yep

Under Special -> Misc Options tick "unlock expermintal area (panel/last tab) then click save / close

Btw if your modem restarts, and from memory reconnects, you need to apply the settings again. I don't believe there's a way to make them permanently stick. If you have a stable connection then it's not too much of an issue

In my place at Karori I used to go from ~13mbit to 18mbit

At my currently place I go from 19mbit to 21mbit. I used to be able to get 23mbit without the need for DMT, cabinet is just down the road, but when Sky came and screwed up the phone line as usual the sync rate dropped down. If I knew how to disconnect the jack from the entry point to the house I would

This is by no means a permanent fix, just an easy way to increase your sync rate

Thanks, DMT tools works a charm. You are correct, the change to your modem only works until you reboot the modem, then the settings change back to whatever is set by your isp.

Because there is no way to make the settings stick, it isn't of much use to me, but thanks anyway.

Interesting, that increased my line rate by 33% (and speedtest.net is reaching higher than ever before). I just wonder how reliable the connection will be now.

Edit: And the answer is "not at all". Reliability is noticeably worse after just 10 minutes of use. This is probably related to distance from exchange etc and it probably works well for people with better lines than me.
