Hi friends. today I installed lede 18.06.1 on my TP-Link W8970 v1. I configured the dsl but it's always using annex M and not using annex A ! I want to always using annex A because the annex A have more speed.
here my configuration:
Add a new option in dsl config option fwannex 'a' as @mbo2o suggested above and then reboot the router. Btw what is your Datarate profile from your ISP? You have very high line attenuation and that's why very low speed. You can try to decrease SNR offset and it can help somewhat increase your download /upload speed if your ISP allocates more than 3 Mbut/s to you?
thanks for reply. my DSL profile is 8Mb/s. but the speed from 5:00 PM down to 4 MB/s !!! without any change to SNR the SNR is always on 10.1 to 10.5. and at the 8:00 AM the speed backed to 8MB/s
at 5:00 PM, I decrease the SNR by -30 db to getting higher speed to 5.1 MB/s.
I don't know why the speed at 5:00 PM decreasing ! I called with ISP but said that the noise of your line is too much
Not really, just trading between upload speed and download speed. annex M gives slightly higher upload speed at the cost of download speed. The aggregate speed UP+DOWN doesn't change much between annex A and M
The speed slowing down can be due to your faulty line but it can also be due to peak usage times maybe. I'd suggest you to contact your ISP and change your line to Annex A if you dont even use Annex M. It will then provide you proper 8 MB/s, as I get 9.216 MB/s DL & 960+KB/s UL rate on my line for 8 MB/s Line. I also suffer from a faulty line from ISP and so my SNR is around 6-9 db and I have permanently configured my line to use -2 db in settings so I always get full speed.
in my line between annex A and M, there are 2 ~ 3 megabites of difference in Downstream. yes the M have more upload speed but decreasing the download speed. Now I'm backed to TP-Link firmware for measuring the speed between the LEDE and TP-Link firmware. my router is TP-Link W8970 V1 and I crossflash the router to the W9980 for newer and better DSL firmware
But that is nothing to wonder about; with AnnexA he syncs at 508 out of 925 possible, while with Annex M he syncs at 508 of 1821 possible, meaning he can get away with loading the same number of bits on more carrier retaining more signal-to-noise-margin... And this only applies to the upstream...
