Re: [Xtreme] AT&T threaten me..I think!

Check out my loop length, that looks high doesn`t it?...

Estimated loop length: 14480 feet (bridge tap)

Yes, if your loop length were actually 14480 feet, it would be rather long for a 3 mbps connection (and the "bridge tap" would also seem to be a bit foreboding. However, it is not unusual for an inexpensive (inexpensive compared to real DSL test equipment) DSL modem to report both of those things incorrectly.

FWIW, I think you are looking in the wrong place again. Your problem is the noise on your telco line, it does not really appear to be a "DSL" problem (although a bridge tap ...if there is one... could be a potential entry point for noise).

Yea...I was just snooping around in the stats..I have not given up on the telco line yet. I got someone higher up than the local supervisor taking a look at it. Hopefully should hear something Monday or Tuesday.

How can I get an accurate loop length?

A few years ago I requested that info in a post in the direct forum

Well I was on 1.5 before and had same disconnect issues as I am having now..I thought it would have been more stable connection but it did not matter by dropping speed.
