Re: Everything MLPPP

I'm running version 7.4.4.7. Anything older will show more jitter.
The only 7.4.4.7 version I see out there is the German version (ST5x6_GeChGen_R7447_rel.zip ). For the International series, the latest is (still) 7.4.3.2 (ST5x6_ZZQ2AA7.432.zip ), which is what I've got here.

Are you using the German one?

Yes. The default language is German but you can still choose from English or 2 other languages.

Also, there's no way to set your vpi/vci manually in the web UI. When you run the setup wizard you get to choose "Standard", "Western" or "K-Net" for your provider. If I choose Standard or Western I get two Brdg_Internet status, reporting 1.32 and 8.35 respectively. If I choose K-Net they report 1.32 and 0.33 respectively. The latter being correct in the west, this works. I don't know what the winning combination might be in the east. Or maybe you can set vpi/vci via CLI; I haven't looked into it.

I should qualify that a little better. In fact, I upgraded some modems from their stock 6.x firmware to 7.4.4.7 without testing anything in between, based on some advice here:

»Re: telus contractor took my modem!

and found that my jitter practically disappeared. If Tierx knows what he is talking about, then we can draw basically 2 conclusions from his post: first, that interleaved connections will benefit from 7.2+ firmwares, and second, that 7.4.4.7 added stability, whatever that might mean.

My connections are interleaved, and yes, my jitter went down. As for stability, I have 5 modems that haven't disconnected ever, but I also have 2 that disconnect daily. I don't blame the modem for that, and I don't know how things might be different on an older firmware.

What he actually said, was "SRA seems to work fine in 7.4.4.7, and adds significant stability." And the jitter fixes came with 7.2 and higher firmware.

Since here in Ontario, Bell has not enabled SRA for regular DSL, I guess that wouldn't help us any, so I might try to resist temptation, and just stick with good/stable 7.4.3.2.

Thanks!
