on a lighter notes for @freakngeek

 

 

 

had techs out to repair my VDSL line today, halfway through my moved ETP build.

 

Managed to capture a sync at the roadside piller, 6x speed increase where it counts..

 

 

 

This was a lucky side-effect of knowing my target.

 

The awkward thing about working with this is, roadside was 8b my house is 17a.. I'm looking forward to the fact that there is a 24 hour test running to see what the bitloading was like.

 

 

 

 

 

on the side of ddDLM on both my VDSL and ADSL line i'm seeing per line movements now, just as ddDLM was intended to do. 

 

Looking great to see that moving around, ofcourse it feaks out when a fault occurs but hey, ddDLM shouldn't mask a fault anyway..

Anyone here noticing movement on VDSL lines down to 6dB?

 

Wondering if its a little early to be questioning if it is happening, however noticing a lack of movement currently.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Given i have had faults on my line so the variance is mainly caused by that.

 

however noting lines seem to be still stuck to the 12dB, 9dB patterns from before ddDLM on VDSL

 

ADSL however following the 12dB, 9dB, 6dB trends.

I've had a line move from ~47/8 on 8B to the below - is 5dB SNR a roundabout 6dB profile?

Is some form of interleaving mandatory now? I was rather enjoying the sub 5ms pings. 

 

 

not at all, it is dynamic.

 

the dynamic latency bit just is taking a little to kick in it would seem.

 

 

 

 

No action by DLM so far since my VDSL interleave appeared more than 10-12 days ago.

 

Currently have a very good 8B, 62760/10356 Kbps sync on a 10dB attenuation line and 12dB SNR (up & down) but stuck with a 15ms ping.

 

We have historically always had no more than 5ms ping and no interleave.

 

I was also hoping these changes would 'pop' us back onto 17a but it's all very quiet.

 

Anyone seeing DLM movements recently?

interesting that your line is not currently rocking 17a.

 

 

 

My personal VDSL line, a solid 28dB Atteuation is rocking 17a like no tomorrow.

 

 

 

I'm awaiting it switching up to 8b for the increased downstream power.

Nothing has changed on my line since it resynced.  Lost downstream speed and nothing has changed on upstream.

Exactly my thoughts! - I've been on 17A twice before and I can see no reason why it has not jumped back there with the current line specs?.

 

(I lost 17A twice when port resets were required last year due to a couple of unknown connection problems)

 

I closely monitor my VDSL and it's never shown a single line error. Attenuation has always been 10dB with a pretty good SNR. Virtually no loss in speed tests at any time of the day or night.

 

I see from some other posts here, lines with much 'lower' parameters running on 17A and I'm wondering why ours is not actively moving?

 

My location is a little unusual. It's close to a whisper cabinet at the end of a fibre line in a rural area so we have excellent service with (I am guessing) low cross talk due to spaced out lifestyle blocks mostly.

Mysteries of VDSL.

 

 

 

All i know is forcing the modes is possible.

 

Turns out messing with it on my side caused a connector to come loose in the CT and on the DSLAM module - As reported by the techs.

Yep. As a programmer, I would love see the code and rules associated with DLM.

 

I find this subject very interesting but waiting for ' DLM Santa' to visit your modem does drive me a bit crazy :-)

There is an amazing 300+ page book about it...

Nothing to do with forcing modes but tweaking the DV130 'VDSL SNR' setting can force a lower downstream snr and corresponding higher sync rate
Upload isn't affected

 

Piccy below at very top is the Telnet command to use to lower the SNR by 5db (max allowed) it took my mine from 9db to 4db
Value range is from -50.0 to 50.0 = -5.0db to +5.0db this gets added to your default sync SNR
Click to see full size
Below that the VDSL status report, with Downstream sync nicely increased from about 44Mbps to 52Mbps

 

Does make me think, as downstream is capable of lower snr, is the actual snr decided by upstream sync and CRC error rate.

Did not know you could snr tweak on the dv130.

 

 

 

careful with tweaking down with ddDLM.

 

a line can be alot more stable with a lower snr on upstream than downstream.

Draytek SNR change guide

 

Got the info from there.

CRC on 4db  SNR downstream is going up slowly, but no worse than it was with SNR at 9db looking at pics I took a few pages ago.
Upstream connection maxes out with tweak setting at -0.5db (8db actual) for me, giving a very small connection speed increase.
I'll leave SNR at 4db and see what happens, so far after a few hours and trialling some big downloads all is well.

That's some useful information that I was also not aware of.

 

My DV130 firmware version indicates it has the vectoring in it but I'm not brave enough to try it out yet.

 

I'm also still really puzzled why we are stuck on 8B when your line is 17A with 26dB attenuation like several other users here.

 

My specs seem good enough for 17A but DLM is just not seem to be active. I'm also interested in why we have interleave with 0 depth that has also not moved since the ddDLM changes...

Once again, we certainly can't complain about the speeds we are getting but I'd still love to see what it would be like on the 17A profile.
