Re: [DSL] Borderline sync after Bell did some work in the area

Only other modem I have is my old Alcatel SpeedTouch Home. Blast from the past - used Nubz AlcaTool to get these. Does the vendor look like a Lucent Stinger? Can't get full 6mbit sync on this but here you go :)

P.S. - I've PM'd my account info.

No, it's the Globespan chipset on the LPA419 AP from an old Lucent AMAS.

The OPI is just that, an outside plant interface where F2 loops are fed to customers, there is no DSLAM or "Lucent Stinger" on it yet, or else Bell would of called it an OSLAM.

Your loop probably cross-connects through that new OPI causing that little bit of extra attenuation. Eventually they'll add a DSLAM to that OPI and you should get better service.

Thanks TSIJonF and usuckbell. I think I'll ride the wave until that DSLAM gets installed.

A Fslam is a co fed line, so based on his being a DSL customer and on legacy gas speeds, Most likely there is already a Slam in the Opi but he has been put on a combo card instead so that bell can feed more Fibe users from said opi. Honestly though His syncs not bad. though how the attenuation says 4-4.5km when 26db suggests more like 2.6 Kms is beyond me.. and the linestats teksavvy Posted seem fine snr is above 6 on the down and well above 6 on the up so should be stable.
