Dropped it a notch, had the modem off 20 minutes then turned it back on again. So far so good !

Hmm, that's odd; your latency is showing as 'fast' has it changed now?

My latency has always been "fast". This is what the new fritzbox firmware says for DLM-1 i believe.

I still have 10-12ms latency to auckland servers.

HowickDota: So it looks like there's another member of the 17a club now...
I hadn't been to my brother's house for about a week and I see he's been switched over.

Not sure what prompted this, but I did change all the line settings to maximum stability about 1.5 months ago so maybe it was an extended period of low errors?

Uptime of 2 days, 8 hours;

That looks sooooo good! I hope I get there too. How would set my modem to maximum stability settings also? Its an Innbox.


your modem seems to be a odd one, with the stats being incorrect and all..

have a hunt around, might an option somewhere.. otherwise DMT tools maybe?



heres what it looks like on the fritzbox, pretty sure SamF wrote somewhere what the options refer to in terms of modifications made..



Thanks! This will give me an idea of what to look for!

HowickDota: Attenuation was at 4 on 8b and 2.5 on adsl2+

Sam, have you been keeping track of this for everyone that's gone to 17a? I think highest pre-17a attenuation has been about 5 or 6, right?


No I haven't TBH, if anyone can find any posts regarding this in this thread I'll update the main post with the updated info.

Achtung!

I've just had a colleague upgrade Fritz!Box 7390 to FRITZ!OS 5.51 (84.05.51). He had the SNRM hack in place prior to this, and after the upgrade his downstream sync dropped fairly dramatically (29,000kbits/sec to 20,000 kbits/sec).
He says the hack is still in place on his 7390, so the new firmware might break the SNRM hack!

Will update this post as I hear more.

Wow, what are his line stats for 20-29000 sync rates?!

After the modem being reset today, i've had a speed increase somehow to 36312 down. Errors haven't gone up. Reported attenuation has gone down by 1dB.

Hmm, disturbing!  What happens if he removes the SNRM hack, reboots, then re-applies the hack?

About a week ago my Fritz 7340 spontaneously rebooted about 4 or 5 times. It would reboot, reconnect to DSL and then a few minutes later reboot again. I ended up leaving it off for 5 or 10 minutes, I think it still did it once or twice after that but seems to have been fine since.

Today I decided to do a bit of SNRM tweaking. So I lowered the margin by 2db and what do I find when the connection comes back up? I've been dropped to DLM-2. Given my error rate has been consistently been below 0.1 per minute this change has to have been due to the reboots. And I doubt there would be any difference between a user initiated reboot and what happened here so I think it's more evidence that we should be careful about how many reboots we do.

On the plus side, it didn't kick me back to 8b. So I wonder if 8b/17a is chosen on attenuation and interference data alone and reboots / CRC errors don't really factor into it.

Now with SNRM of 9-10db I'm getting close to max performance and still have virtually no errors:

SamF: Hmm, weird!

Yeah. If it does it again I'll talk to Snap about getting it replaced. I'm not too worried about the latency  but random spontaneous reboots will get old real fast.

Ripped a couple of videos off YouTube and it was downloading at a consistent 4 to 5MB/s. Is it coming from the local cache?

Looks like most youtube rippers (can't say I've used them but looking on wikipedia) support multithreaded downloads so it could be either.

I figured it was time to push my SNR tweak up a wee bit more, so it's now at -70 in the Fritzbox config file. I'll upload stats once its had a bit of time to stabilise, but it's bought me another ~0.8mbit on speedtests. :)   I'll be amazed if it does stay stable.  I was worried about the reboot of the modem as my CRCPM has climbed to 6 on the -65 SNRM tweak... but it all came back up fine, still DLM1.
