What we see in the above image is a Huawei SmartAX MA5603T MSAN, with all six line card slots fully occupied.

How many line card slots are there in the cabinet? there are 24 x 10 = 240 connected mean 48 more connected left before it all full up?

Vic, what router are you using?

There should not be any audible noise when you listen to a conventional wired (not DECT or  cordless handset) phone and if so, then thatís an issue for your phone service provider not your ISP, unless the two are the same one company. Itís down to who you pay your line rental and landline phone bill to.

Given that youíre hearing noise that has to be fixed first. No need to be thinking about Wi-Fi at all, first things first.

And BT should not be blowing faceplates up. [!] ???

Did you say you have out a telephone straight into the test socket?

Youíve had three engineers which is a bit mad. If it continues and you find are getting nowhere, the ISP Andrews and Arnold aa.net.uk (whom I use) will fix your line.

I've just received my Ebay Huawei B525.  Initial test in the living room LTEwatch showed RSRP -108dBm and a download speed of 7meg.  Already nearly twice as fast as our DSL.  Moving to the spare bedroom gave -94dB and speed test of 18meg down and 6 up.  Fiddling with the aerials has improved to -90dB, raising the router up by about a foot gave -85.  That's all on Band 20 which seems to be the only one available.

I'm now onto my third free 200meg SIM.  A couple of speed tests seem to use the allowance, so I don't have a test at -90 or -85dB  However I think it's promising enough for me to think about getting a real SIM.
The most I have ever gotten on Band 20 was about 20 Mbps downstream, and that only happened during an off-peak period early morning. But generally, it's single digits (as I have said too many times, so I feel like I going insane ???, though it is my choice to mention it :D).

Please be aware that the settings in the router will default to Auto for Antennas (this can be changed in the system settings). It may decide that External is better (if they are plugged in, of course) but as I discovered the other morning, I could get more downstream (at the cost of 1/2 the upstream) by using forcing Internal (though I imagine the location it was in was prime for the internal antennas); approx. 60-65 vs. 70-75 Mbps downstream even though the signal was weaker. But I haven't extensively tried it so it may have been just a fluke, and at peak times the difference may be nil anyway.

Regardless, worth testing some different configurations and positions until you find something good. Though with -85 dBm RSRP on Band 20, I'm surprised that you have no Band 3 at all. Perhaps there is something it can't penetrate.

Same here. Donít know the root cause, but observed that the vdsl link was still active, but no PPPoE to AA. However, according to my routerís status page I did have a connection. The WAN IP address was a 172. private address and the DNS addresses looked to be quite random. Eventually cleared, but Firefox became quite excited during the outage, issuing many warnings of impending catastrophe if I proceeded!

This is what I do --

[bcat tmp]$ screen -L -U ssh supervisor@AP
supervisor@ap's password:
 > dumpmdm
Dump of Entire MDM, this is NOT the config file
  <InternetGatewayDevice>
 
<Snip>

  </InternetGatewayDevice>
dump bytes allocated=805260 used=318157 >
 > exit

Bye bye. Have a nice day!!!
Connection to AP closed.
[bcat tmp]$

That gives me a local copy of the information in the screenlog.0 file. I can then manipulate it or search within it whichever way I choose.

When I log in and run the dumpmdm command on my ZyXEL VMG 1312-B10A (with our own Kitz member Johnson-supplied custom firmware) I get a huge ton of XML config file output. I canít see it all and I want to grep it.

I have been using various versions of grep for over thirty years, so Iím familiar with the concept and with regexes. Just a bit.::)

The problem I have is that dumpmdm is a command belonging to the Broadcom dedicated custom CLI only - is that correct ?

And I wanted to use the Ďproperí bash shell so that I can run grep or umpteen other good things. But I canít see how to mix the two. If I could, then I could pipe things or redirect the output to a file eg "/tmp/my.txt" say

Thank you for the description . . . and details of the tests that were performed.

I think we can rule out any obvious external wiring problems and internally you have the absolute minimum required . . . the incoming service feed going directly to an NTE5C (fitted with a SSFP).

Nothing comes immediately to mind. Let's see if anyone else has an idea.  :-\

I don't know much about telecoms so I can only think of something random happening with the modems, if one modem holds much longer than two others. But I guess I'll see soon enough in a few days with the new one plugged in, and remove any doubt.

Nearly 5 and a half hours of stats:

Loss of Framing (Local/Remote):   0 / 0
Loss of Signal (Local/Remote):   0 / 0
Loss of Power (Local/Remote):   0 / 0
Loss of Link (Remote):   -
Error Seconds (Local/Remote):   1,030 / 0
FEC Errors (Up/Down):   0 / 0
CRC Errors (Up/Down):   309 / 4,225
HEC Errors (Up/Down):   301 / 4,793


The only other thing I can think of is my neighbour having an issue with his wifi. From his descriptions sounds like just his wireless devices are really painful to watch and just won't work most of the time between 8AM to 10PM specifically. Apparently everything wired is fine though. But he's not savvy so wouldn't notice a resync at all. Could just be a wireless channel issue, but I wonder if there might be some EFI/RFI somewhere.

As long as you aren't gaming I'd expect even at worst it to be comparable to DSL, on average much better.
