Re: [DSL] drop outs, connection interupted....multiple service c
Personally I would get the modem moved so it is as close to the nid as absolutely possible. if you can get a shelf in the basement right where it comes in, split the line, put a plug on each end, use a filter so the modem had a short (6ft or less) phone cable and the from the phone side of the splitter to provide phone service to the rest of the house.
Let me put it to you this way here are my line stats:
Up Time 37:22:13:16 (yep almost 38 DAYS)
Transceiver Information Down Stream Path Up Stream Path
DSL Speed (Kbits/Sec) 3360 847
Margin (dB) 8.7 6.1
Line Attenuation (dB) 49.8 34.2
Transmit Power (dBm) 17.2 11.2
FEC Errors 0 0
HEC Errors 351444 67216
CRC Errors 664393 0
My modem is wired in just like I describe. Once your connection is stable you should see stats like mine.
Note if your connection still isn't stable then the noise on the line is not coming from inside the house. If the phone line (trunk line) passes too close to a power transformer they may have to move it to fix the line noise.
