They are both pretty weathered looking, so if a service different to the one you have currently is available from said boxes it has been for some time.

At least here its very rare for new equipment to be housed in the same cabinet. Additional ports sure, but not a change of DSL version.

What exactly are you hoping to be the case?

they are two different cabinets... but they are at the same location. the bigger one is the one I assume to contain the DSLAM and related equipment, and the smaller one I think is the distubution panel for the copper lines, but who knows. Here is my post over at DSLreports (not trying to advertise here, just for context)

Was jut trying to get some feedback from users regarding broadband failback / redundancy.

I currently have a TP-Link W9970 (using as modem / router only, no wifi). This device has the ability to use a usb 3G/4G dongle as failback.

Does anyone on this forum use this router with 3G/4G failback enabled?

What I wanted to find out was when the broadband / fibre connection goes down whether the switch to 3G/4G was seamless? and also when the broadband connection reconnects does the 3G/4G dongle again seamlessly disconnect? If you see what I mean.

Was considering going down that route with Smarty on contract as they seem to refund for unused data, which would be cost effective.

Many thanks for any info provided

Looks like Option 1 in this case.  Running at 23.5 down :).

He removed two internal junction boxes as they were a bit pointless, but didn't see anything wrong - not that I'm worried, that's a nice result.

I wouldn't bother putting new firmware without updating to a newer OpenWRT
I've been running 5.9.0.C.1.7-5.9.0.A.0.2.bin since it was released and it's mega stable but I can't say I've noticed any speed improvements.

I've just updated my box to the latest version of OpenWRT.  It's not connected to my VDSL line yet so I've not had a chance to test it.  However, I've configured the bridge so hopefully it will be OK.  Did you have to do anything else to it after flashing and setting up the bridge?

Are you able to send be a copy of the above bin file please?  Not having any luck with the Freetz site as it is in the process of being moved and the instructions don't seem to work.

Many Thanks

And the photos appear to be of two different cabinets, not two views of the same one...

Yes the GEA handover is after L2S, I knew that but sorry for not making it clear. I was just saying that SVLAN can't statically be applied on ingress to the L2S because it would mean the whole DSLAM connected on that port would have the SVLAN..unless there are rules to add a different SVLAN based on CVLAN(+CoS parameters) on that port on the L2S (although I can't find any cisco code that evidences it being possible atm), either that or the DSLAM applies 2 tags if that's possible. The issue with the L2S method where the DSLAM only uses CVLANs is that duplicate CVLANs would not be allowed on the DSLAM despite in reality being on different SVLANs which could be annoying I suppose.

When you say the NCAS system preallocates the ports (I had never heard of NCAS), is this permanent or do you reckon BTw could have a set of SVLANs for a specific ISP so the SVLAN of the port could be changed remotely by openreach when the upgrade occurs?

I think this would be a good thing to address on your broadband section of the site somewhere. More about PPPoE + L2TP sessions or in this case SVLANs and VPLS  or these upgrade / downgrade scenarios.

One thing I'm not sure about atm is how BTw controls the broadband speed. They could do it with the DLM profile alone I guess, by giving the end user a slower sync speed. But im not sure if that's what happens, if a 'base' DLM profile is assigned to a line by openreach when an upgrade occurs. I think it's also possible to limit bandwidth based on CVLAN/SVLAN on switches as well so BTw could go to openreach for that or they could apply limits per SVLAN/CVLAN on their bRAS. I think with L2TP you could have bandwidth limits on RADIUS at the LNS but I'm not sure. With VPLS potentially the ISP could apply bandwidth policing on an SVLAN/CVLAN basis but the issue with that is the LNS could terminate multiple BRASs so I don't know if that's possible.

Weaver, he's not in the UK,  going by a previous post he's in America, and the ISP mentioned was Frontier, which is an American communications provider.

Total time is how long the modem had been powered on.
Since link time is since the xDSL link was established.

A resync would restart the "since link time" timer.

Total time is sometimes missing a digit on some (I can't remember which) devices.
It may show 1 day instead of 11 days.

As above.
I believe they are now allowed to swap master sockets over too (at least the Sky engineers now can).
Nothing you haven't checked yourself by the sounds of it.
