Unida: ok, what is the indicator that you are on a 997 or the other one?

will i need to reconnect my line? it looks like the values are the same since install etc

remuera auckland btw


You'll know when you get 30Mbps up. :)

Your line will drop in the middle of the night and it's supposed to automatically connect on the higher speeds. I don't have the rollout schedule but you may need to wait until November depending on the area.

and how do you tell that on a modem other than the fritz?

i would has it a guess that you would notice a slight difference in speed test results and sync speeds.

You cant really.

the asus modem many people have does show specturms too.


Most likely, on an 8b profile, you will see an increase in Downstream, minor change in upstream and likely a snr drop.

on 17a, increase in downstream, Quite a jump in upstream, and looking the same

Chorus control profiles, through DLM. there is no control.

if you want a tip that YOU can do, get rid of that slingshot trash modem you have. Short of bridging it its typically horribly unreliable.

typically, i should have said Historically. I have not seen if recent firmware changes have improved it.

all really depends on what "fine" is too though.

Not bad, 3dB boost in Target SNR there is pretty clear.

the Drop in Upload, jump in download is Exactly as expected!



Over all the lines i have seen its looking like an average of 20~30mbit up on download, up to 2mbit drop on upload on 8b lines (remember there are extreme cases)

17a i havent seen enough to be 100% on the changes, seems to jump up to 20~30mbit up however. which would be about what ild expect.

for those on broadcom modems, you can telnet/ssh into your modem and there's a command like adsl/xdslcmd (netcomm, huawei) that takes parameter of info --linediag1 and will give you lots of stats.

so for hg659 you login

ATP> shell

busybox etc

$ xdslcmd info --linediag1

the question is how to go from that information to a pretty graph :)

if you think that's hard to read, try reading --SNR instead of --linediag1, no grouping at all...

Routerstat or DMT tools would probably do it.

If not natively supported, Routerstat could be tweaked to do it, its pretty customizable (although dated as hell)

i got dmt tools to work on netcomm but it just didn't fit the graph properly with vdsl.  so i can't really recommend it.  haven't tried routerstat.

eh, even on adsl DMT tools struggles. Routerstats looks far nicer.



if you can see the bitloading for US0(26.075 kHz to 137.825 kHz/ 6-31 bit tones.) even if in a table its pretty clear its 998.
