Tip 1. The worst enemy Attenuation
We will be terribly affected by the attenuation of our telephone lines if we use ADSL lines of 10 or around 20 Mbps. This factor calculates the loss of power or signal between the control units and the router, in view of that the larger distance from the control units, the more attenuation & therefore less reliability/stability of the line &lower synchronization speed. However, everything is not distance, as there are more causes for attenuation like damaged wiring or poor quality &poor connections made both inside &outside our house.
Hence, if we don’t get our router to correctly synchronize at the speed contracted or experience persistent drops, we always suggest directly connecting it to the phone box (PTR) which carries the line to the residence or to the central connector.
At this point if we attain better connection stability or higher synchronization speeds after few tests, it is obvious that the issue is in the inside wiring of our residence. We need have to check connections, cables, in the boxes & so on.
Similarly, it is essential to keep in mind that with over 3 micro filters on the similar line we will have issues for the ADSL to work properly, where as its absenteeism can even cause particular issues while connecting to the line devices for instance faxes or alarms.
Tip 2. Different speed, Different router
If we own an ADSL line of the speediest (those around 20 Mbps), we should know that the synchronization speed may differ from one router to the other. In case of best conditions of least attenuation this class of lines just link to the above-mentioned20 Mbps. In fact it is usual to acquire speeds of between 18 and 12 Mbps, always depends on the speed which all routers consider suitable to match the line in a steady way.
Here it is exciting to know that as per the model and line of the router we may find variances of 1 & 2 Mbps between various producers. Few routers have additional traditional firmware’s (for example the models which operators hand out to their clients, where fewer technical issues are pursued), that synchronize somewhat below the limits to make sure better reliability.
However, others synchronize at the topmost possible speed, even though, if our line has fluctuations in the attenuation by bad wiring or poor connections, we may suffer occasional drops or cuts.
Tip 3. Do we improve the settings?
Several have doubted us on various occasions regarding possible modifications which could be done in the configuration of the router to transfer speed or enhance its performance.
At this point, the fact is that the ADSL lines of every operator have their certain configuration factors, and altering them will just hinder the connection. Hence, there are no alterations to the router which we can just change to improve or increase its performance.
Hence the greatest way would be to get in touch with the provider &book technicians visit to your place where causes for slow connection might be inspected.
