It will be interesting to read about your experience and the results so obtained.

Looking at that eBay listing it appears that the devices were for the European market, with the PSU having intergal two-pin plugs.

Fusion splicing of the various fibres will be occurring in the relative comfort of the back of that van. Hence the reason why significant lengths of the fibre tubes are left, coiled up, in the joint boxes . . . a far better result is obtained when not sitting in a tent over the joint box, with feet down the hole, trying to make the fusion splices.

Very odd. I wonder if some cabinet based, mechanical, work took place and there were physical disturbances to the cable pairs?  :-\

Thanks for the replies and I'm sorry if I was unclear.

I have a S/H Zyxel router which I believe was supplied to a John Lewis user, but I'm not sure.
JL is managed by my ISP, Plusnet, and my support desk thought that if they applied the routers model and/or serial no to my account they were confident the TR69 setup would work and auto setup to my PN. account.

This is the method PN use for those using the PH issued routers on both adsl and vdsl cabinets and I know this works.

The new issued router does not contain any pre-confugured user info just a link to the ISP's TR69 setup server and from there uses the serial number to identify and collect the required user's login details and installs them to the router.

So it gets the login username/password but what else ? ( are the Vlan settings of p= 0 q=101 uk wide for all ISP's and might it set that also ?? )

Clearly as Alex confirms, this could never work if the router cannot first discover which interface to use as it could never get to the config server.

There must be something the Dsalm indicates to the router which interface is active, hence...................
 
"In my case the router was supplied by another ISP so clearly the TR69 will not work but I was surprised that the Zyxel was unable to auto discover that is was connected to a Vdsl cabinet."

Hi everyone,

first post, sorry if this is going over old ground but i can't find anything using the search that quite matched my issue.

The background info:

So i've had a Unlocked HG612 purchased from ebay running in bridge mode for a while now previously used with a Asus AC3200 Router however that started to die with random wifi drops and getting quite hot, i do have a fair amount of devices on the network circa 25-30wifi and 3 wired, so anyway decided to order a Amplifi Alien to replace the asus and basically decided to tidy up everything else and see if i can get any more speed out of the system, this coincided with me upping my BT subscription to fibre 2 FTTC.

First thing i noticed a nice upload speed bump effectively doubling my speed to 17.5Mbps however i noticed my download speed was basically the same at around 42Mbps, so jumped onto BT and reported and issue and they did the online line check as i obviously can't do the speed test without their HH plugged in, all said it was fine, then as if by magic my speed jumped up to 52Mbps (still under the speed guarantee) great i thought, but thought i best check the modem....

The Issue:

So today i decide to log into the HG612 and check the line speeds etc, and i noticed my Line rate download speed is showing as 58672 kbit/s and upload showing at 18627 kbit/s and the attainable rate showing as 58212kbit/s download and 18627kbit/s upload, thats on average 6Mbps down and 1Mbps up faster than i'm seeing at the router using the routers built in speed test.

Does anyone have an idea as to why that might be ? I'm using the supplied amplifi cable to connect from modem to router.

Does anyone have a list of ideal modem settings for a BT VDSL2 line?

modem info/settings below. (sorry about photos)

Any help would be appreciated.

Oddly I would have thought with such a loss of throughput G.INP would be changed to Interleave as Vdsl 2 can use much greater interleaving depths, the maximum interleaving depth is 3072 (for profile 17a) so 4 with that drop seems odd hence my mention of it. My Interleaving is 1087 when it was on fast path before the modem change, on an ECI cab. If the poster is on a Huawei cab I would have thought that interleaving would have been applied until the line was stable then G.INP reapplied at some point. Since not everyone is having re-syncs saying what cab they are on would help in this thread. What do you think?
Mine is definitely Huawei - just checked :)

I'm currently looking at:
https://www.zyxel.com/uk/en/products_services/4G-LTE-A-HomeSpot-Router-LTE4506-M606/

Carrier aggregation support: B1+B8/B3+B20/B3+B7/B3+B8/B7+B20/B7+B28/B40+B40/B3+B3/B7+B7/B3+B28
Micro USB powered.
Amazon want 160 or 130 depending on where you look:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/LTE4506-M606-EU01V1F-AC1200-Unlocked-Router-LTE4506/dp/B01EZTR8GA < 160
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Zyxel-AC1200-Unlocked-Router-LTE4506-v2/dp/B07HY2GCJ7 < 130

Seller on Ebay wants 50, has 10 in stock: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Zyxel-LTE4506-4G-LTE-A-HomeSpot-Router/402636026591?

Does not look a bad price to test out this Voxi Sim, the micro usb power socket means I could power it anywhere.

Perfectly normal for G.INP for the interleave depth to be 4.
It's only 1 on ECI cabinets with no error protection enabled.

There's 3 members in this thread who have lost Downstream sync.
All have dropped sync because the DLM has increased the target SNRM. This happens due to an increase in errors.

If you don't have a 3, 4 or 5dB target then you wouldn't be affected.

I see that bitswap is disabled for both DS/US, do not know if this could cause more frequent resyncs. if some tones are affected and make the DLM take action. if it can affect the line then it can be turned on by CLI command as I believe there is no setting for it in the GUI. If ECI cabinets support bitswap after all

Didnt notice that! My broadcom modem plugged in now says this - Bitswap:   1788/1794      288/288
Not actually sure about these technical things or what bitswap actually is(!) but seems like the broadcom is doing something on Bitswap, but the draytek wasn't.
Edit - then again, we actually have no idea if it was enabled, because the status pages are totally broken and misreporting!
