Windows 7: Routers for Low SNR

Routers for Low SNR

I’ve been experiencing a number of problems with my internet connection and have had a number of things done to resolve the situation including a new router from my service provider. They have told me that it is a basic router. The problem I’m having is that the SNR keeps dropping. Having done some research I’ve find a website that says the following routers have specifically been known to maintain a more stable connection on a low SNR line.

The Speedtouch 585 and 576,
Netgear DG834,
Westell 6100,
D-Link DSL-G604T

Does anyone have these routers and could comment on their ability to uphold a stable connection on a low SNR line?

Please note I would be connecting with an ethernet cable, not wifi.

I have been using a Netgear DG834G from time immemorial. I know that it is one of the best modem/routers that can work in adverse SNR conditions where others struggle to maintain a connection.( Mine though,is not working in such adverse conditions :) : I am within a mile from my exchange.)

Thank you, that's just the information I was looking for. Does it also work with high SNR, as the latest re-set by my SP hasn't worked and the SNR has now increased to 19. I have an outreach engineer booked for tomorrow to see if they can track down the cause but I want to keep in mind that a more substantial router may well help, or could well be my only option if they can't find the issue.

Who's the ISP normally they supply routers that are compatible with their network. Ask the engineer to fit a rain filter that drastically changes it and reduces noise etc. Have you got a sheilded cable from socket to router that's a must normal cable is rubbish and picks up noise

I'm dealing with a different person now at the SP and I get the feeling they're more experienced than the previous chap I'd been dealing with. He said to me that although they've provided me with a new router, it is a "basic" router. This was when I was discussing that I would be willing to buy a new router that was capable of maybe handling the fluctuating SNR.

The last engineer who came out fitted a brand new BT Master Socket 5C which I'm assuming is all singing all dancing.

I will mention to the engineer tomorrow about fitting a rein filter and see what they say, although it would be good if they could actually track down the source of the problem and fix it.

Thanks for the info guys.

A tech came to my house a while back for an internet problem; he said that some of the connectors in the box attached to the pole were bad, so he made sure that my jack was connected to a good connector in the box.

He also made sure that I was on a good connector in the box that was attached to my house.

Ok guys, So a few days ago, my router bricked itself. I don't know how, but I'll explain the problem. The WiFi Broadcasts a 169 Address, and kicks off EVERY wireless device. Trying to reconnect fails, it also rejects the pass key. The hardwired connections are fine, but it's only a matter...
