I have been monitoring my SNR & Attuation for last week or so..

been around 11-13.. then when it rained heaps on sunday morning.. it dropped to 6-7..
I also seen it drop to 2 on on Saturday & drop connection.. think it may have rained a little?

How can I test where my problem is?

If it is on telecom side, will they identify & fix..

You should focus more on your attenuation, when that goes up that's a bad thing.

Did that go up when it rained?

My Attenuation is not great.. but consistent.. 53.. to my ADSL modem port...

I wired it direct to Master port.. and got 46..

Do you think I should rewire? if it drops between Master point & ADSL port?

Where are you located? Are you within a 10Mbps zone according to the Chorus SAT page?
