Hi all, I have spent most of the afternoon reading through the forums looking at broadband connection and speed problems, and thought some one might be able to translate this for me:

Its from a Linksys WAG200G that disconnected randomly.

This first and last lines are before and after it drops the internet.

It does not drop the DSL connection, just the internet, for about 30 seconds (as can be seen)  Real annoying when playing a game.

I use Woosh (in the process of moving back to vodafone) and this is the data from me modem:

DSL Status: Connected

DSL Modulation Mode: ADSL2+
DSL Path Mode: Interleaved
Downstream Rate: 4127 kbps
Upstream Rate: 833 kbps
Downstream Margin: 10 db
Upstream Margin: 12 db
Downstream Line Attenuation:46 db
Upstream Line Attenuation: 13.5 db
Downstream Transmit Power:12 db
Upstream Transmit Power:  21 db

From what I have read I understand 46dB is all bad for attenuation. 

I have done the isolation test.  
I have rewired the house with CAT 5, and silicon splice fittings
There is only 1 point in the house
I have tried a different filter
I have tried a different router / modem
I have abused woosh's customer service guys (no success)
Drops weather its raining or not
Drops weather its hot or cold

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, esp why its dropping.

Thanks

Phil

How long has it been doing this, has it always done this?

I would try a different modem, preferably one based on a solid broadcom chipset.

For an all in one (ADSL, network switch, wireless N) unit I recommend the Netcomm (aka Dynalink) NB6PLUS4W at the moment.

Its been doing for about 6 months now, randomly.  Ever since I switched to woosh - hence why I have given up with their customer support and going back to vodafone.

I did try a belkin router with the same sort of results, although I didn't capture any data from it.
