It will take some time before the situation stabilises to see if the result will be greater download speeds and less router reboots, although initial results are very promising. I used to enjoy a stable ADSL service for months on-end but then BT "upgraded" my exchange and the link became eratic. Before the new face-plate was fitted, my ADSL link was going down briefly more or less every day. That has now stopped. The link is stable again and hopefully BT's exchange equipment will increase my downlink speed in-line with the increased stability. I have downloaded a screen capture from the excellent Routerstats programme which shows the noise margin before and after the faceplate was fitted. The increase in noise margin is self-evident, as is the increased stability. In fact, my downstream connection rate increased from 4,500 to 6,600 kbs within three days, and, after ten days of stability, the BT exchange equipment raised this to 9,724 kbs, the highest I have ever received. Postscript: by the end of June my downstream rate has increased to 14,000 downstream, 1,176 upstream at 6db noise margin; it remains to be seen whether the link will hold at this rate.
Besides a much improved performance over the BT "i-plate" that it replaced, there is no longer a requirement for messy individual filters on each of my extensions.
The Solwise web site gives an excellent account of how and why these things work and the instructions supplied with the faceplate are more than adequate.Read more ›
Review one – Brilliant. Buy it. End of
Review two – this is the tail end of a long process on how to get a good broadband connection. Our area is not the greatest and we are on BT. We tested 2 up and 0.5 down. Pretty bad. But after cursing BT I looked into this more and realised the issue was on us. The router is upstairs on a phone extension. The first trick is to connect directly to the master socket under the NTE5 face plate. Magically we were seeing 30 up and 5 down! It was clear the phone extensions were the problem. If you get a similar finding buy this as the absolute essential accessory. It filters out the phone extensions which no longer need DSL filters. The next issue this caused is that the router has to be wired to the master socket which is in the font landing. Not great. To get Ethernet upstairs I use the devolo 1200+ powerline adapters, although this required a socket to be fitted in the box with the master socket on the same ring as upstairs. Also this means the router would not fit in the space by the master socket or has reduced wireless signal. The fix (quite costly but necessary for me running my business from home) is a Vigor modem (DSL modem only on Ethernet) in the box by the master socket and the router on the Ethernet elsewhere. These secondary matters will just be tailored to what you need, but absolutely I recommend this. I was stunned at how much the phone extension ruin the broadband. You may get very much different results in your own building or on differing ISP services but this worked for me.
