| || || | Any experience of 256k ADSL?
I have had an intermittent new 512 kb/s ADSL service via Zen for a couple of
weeks, using a Netgear DG834 ethernet router supplied by them. BT have
fitted a filtered faceplate to the master socket, with no improvement. When
working, downstream attenuation is 63 dB, with a noise margin from 1 to 5 dB
(usually 3 dB): upstream attn. 31.5 dB, noise margin 9-11 dB (from memory).

Before I had ADSL activated on my line my Cable & Wireless Caller ID phone
(number&name) worked fine.
Since ADSL It's showing no caller info. I also have a BT DECT phone with
caller ID (number only) that still shows incoming numbers.
Are some Caller ID phones NOT compatible with ADSL?

I recently set up my (non-techie) sis / bil with broadband from PlusNet.
SamKnows website indicates a 2Mb speed should be possible, though BT found
the signal at the house was half a db over their official threshold for 2Mb.
Long story short, the c2Mb connection was patchy so BT reduced speed of
connection to 1Mb.
They were and still are using an 'Ebuyer 1 Port SPI Firewall Combo Ethernet...

I've just read this on the Zen board at ADSL Guide:

I cancelled adsl on a line a few weeks ago but the router still syncs with

Do BT just leave the line in this state or does it revert to a normal
