Since you have a history of having problems you should at least start a new topic with your ADSL stats included before anything else as they are not logged long term but are a just a single snapshot each time you check them and they have been requested multiple times. Note:
Line Monitoring a bad line is just a waste of time though as no Baseline or NID only ADSL Stats have been posted to see if the problem is either from household inside wiring (which is 100% the customers responsibility) or either a line problem from the NID back to the CO.

You reset your modem while at its normal current inside location and then save (copy/paste) those fresh stats from your current setup into a text file.
The important numbers to look at are:
• Downstream Sync Rate (or Bit Rate)
• Downstream Noise Ratio (SNR Signal to Noise Margin)
• Downstream Attenuation
• Downstream Output Power
• Downstream Attain Rate (Attainable Rate)
• Downstream Capacity Occupation
Note: Not all modems supply all the stats listed above. Just post what you have.
Keep us informed on what you find with the DSL Stats from the NID test results as that really should be done as soon as possible. Weather permitting of course
I now see that you never posted any ADSL Stats before so that is not a good thing. You could have built up a logged history of line data that you don't now have.
