Hi all,My connection was lost yesterday at about 4pm.I was online when it went,logged off and back on but still the same.Did a reboot which was still the same.I then ran a diagnostic check which brought up the following.

Test ATM OAM FS segment ping----Fail
Test ATM OAM end to end ping-----Fail
Test PPP server connection---------Fail.

Can anyone tell me what these mean.Also when my connection came back about 3 hours later my downstream has gone from 1536kbps to 1848kbps and my snr has gone from 13.6 downstream to 15.9


Edit.Just found out there was a problem at my exchange yesterday.

I guess that was the problem then. You seem to have gained some speed in the process. :)

I don't really know (I thought an ATM was a cash machine, but it also stands for Asynchronous Transfer Mode) but it certainly seems likely.

ATM is (usually) the BTw part of the network

 


More info: -BTs ATM Backhaul

However just be aware you will obviously also get ATM fail if you dont have sync or youre not connected.

You have to follow the list through - if one of the earlier stages wont work, then obviously the subsequent ones wont.

Connected to the phone line (phone works) >
Connected to the exchange  (Sync) >
BT authentication at the RAS (ATM) >
ISP authentication (PPP) >


The above is a very simplified version
- full version of BT login authentication.

yay you certainly do seem to have benefited in some way from the outage with a faster connection and also a better SNR Margin.

Your SNR must have been pretty good when you did eventually manage a resync.

Did the green dsl light on your router go off?  Thats the easiest and most obvious way to see if youve lost sync with the exchange.

Hi Kitz,no the green light did not go off,but the green light which shows I can make calls via the internet went off and I was not able to make broadband calls.the normal phone line was ok.This is what I couldn,t understand.The sync light was green yet there was no connection.

Probably the bit between the dslam at the exchange and the RAS then.
