Does anyone know if its possible to view the DLM profile information? DSL stats on the 130 seems to be significantly lacking compared to say the Fritz Box, I have to Telnet in or use the syslog server to even see the line attenuation.

Would like to know this also.

FWIW - I had a faulty unit. Operated fine, but every 1-3 hours, would just completely reboot. Got a replacement, already had the firmware upgrade done to it, configured it up via the bridging document on their website, instantly connects faster/win etc.

I'm a bit gutted because now my DLM profile will be screwed, as I installed the Draytek when I moved into a new house. Had great speeds to start, now it's terrible!

I'm unsure why you'd think you'd have a significant change in speed from DLM - there seems to be some strange idea that DLM controls everything which is simply not the case.

On the 8b profile you can get speeds up to 45ish Mbps even with a high DLM, however if you have high attenuation (line loss) you'll get bad speeds even if your DLM profile is low.

I've only ever seem DLM adjust speeds slightly (by a few Mbps max)

If you've got bad speeds then it's likely to be your line length or house wiring.

All I know is I have a sheet from Chorus when they installed the splitter with connection verification speeds of 44mbps/10mbps, as soon as I connected the router I got the same, and 2ms ping. Then over the next 10 days speed and ping got progressively worse. Nothing else in the environment has changed, and the speed decreases were gradual.

What speeds do you get now - my latest vdsl connection was put in a couple of months ago and I got 43mbps now I get 40 - same profile same DLM - vdsl pushes copper to the limits and the speed drops caused by others in your cable bunch are very real.

Im jealous with your speeds and yet you complain.. I am only getting 22/3 (down/up) on 1km vdsl. But Im still happy as I can stream netflix movies in SuperHD all the time and able to watch 3d movies (netflix) with of course Hulu in HD as well. can watch youtube in HD while watch netflix so Im happy with my 22Mb so far. 
Btw Im with Bigpipe!

FWIW - Speeds are back to what they were originally after I requested Snap restart my DLM initialisation profile. Nothing else changed that I'm aware of.

Down Stream : 43016Kbps / Up Stream : 10348Kbps

Has anyone connected a Vigor 130 to Snap VDSL?

Can you put up screenshots of your settings?

I can't get mine to authenticate. Rang up Snap and they said everything looks good. They're receiving the correct username/password for my account but they're at a loss to why it won't authenticate since all the login details are correct

This is just straight modem connection. No bridging yet

My Vigor 130 is on Snap, its currently bridged so I cant screenshot it at the moment however if they're receiving the username and password it should be authenticating.

Are you on the latest firmware? It shouldn't really matter as I had no trouble authenticating on the firmware it came with but you have to upgrade to bridge it anyway.

Update to latest firmware > Factory reset by pressing the button on the back > configure it as per standard VDSL > upload screenshots of what you've configured so we can check it out.

I also use the 130 as a bridge to a Mikrotik, but previous testing it was doing everything (including auth) fine.
