    Default Unstable ADSL connection

    Hi!

    I have had a 2Mbps connection from MTNL for the past three years. Starting a few months back, the connection suddenly has become very unstable. My snr data isn't too bad, and I've also had a linesman come to my place and connect the telephone after the splitter.
    Sometimes, the connection literally drops every few seconds, so it's pretty much impossible to use it. On the other hand, I've seen it stay stable for hours sometimes. Does anyone here have similar problems? I'm using a Netgear DG834G router.

    My data is as follows:
    Downstream SNR:9dB
    Attenuation:39.5dB
    Upstream SNR:8dB
    Attenuation:28dB

    DG834G router.

    Try mod mode GDMT.
    Check contacts for rusting/blackening/ high resistance
    Suggest replace with new short Rj11 and rj45 cables.
    SNR should increase and attenuation reduced.

    Something similar happened to me, it was a modem issue (had this issue with both wireless n wired routers) they replaced it. the DNA wireless ones are the worst.
    The net is pretty reliable so any recurring problem
    1. either a router issue.
    2. hardware fault (line has fault/splitter has fault)

    the dns is seldom down(once in months)

    Get customer service to check your line which they can do remotely while you are on the phone with them and see if there is an issue with the line.

    I too have been using Belkin wi-fi since feb. But since late June I am having exactly the same problems. MTNL guys have since then replaced the wires, the box, splitter and rj-45 cables. Nothing has improved. My SNR is pretty low - 10 down and 0.5 up. But i do get connected if I use the modem provided by MTNL (though with those pathetic SNRs). With Belkin, it just keeps beeping red all day and never connects.
