for those of you who are not aware, the signal strength of your ADSL line has got a big influence on your connection stability. The weaker the signal (usually the further away you are from the exchange, max 3km but not limited to distance only) the slower your line speed must be to get a stable connection. (Noise on the line might also have an effect, the more noise the slower your connection must be to stabilize) If you are on the edge of minimum signal strength (normally viewable on your modem's connection status) you'll get constant disconnects when running at 4meg+ speeds. I've seen this time and again when upgrading clients's ADSL lines to higher speeds. At my previous office we could only run at 6meg on the supposedly 10meg line speed. The moment Telkom tuned up the line speed above that we would lose our internet connection. It might connect once every now and then for a few seconds.
I now have this problem at my house and I was hoping for a solution of some type of signal repeater/booster that one could plug your ADSL line into to get a stable connection instead of tuning down the speed to 2/3meg from 4meg.
Does any one know if there is a type of solution for this?
