I'm wondering if there is any way to test the dB on a line without using a router?

On a friends computer just now with the Speedtouch 330 (Yes, he is BT!).

I just want to know what other product he could go for.

I will migrate him to Plus.net once his contract is up!!

If you're on PlusNet you can raise a ticket requesting a whoosh ticket - however, obviously, you need to be actually connected to PlusNet Cheesy I'm not sure if BT would do a test, but it might be worth asking their CS department..

You can raise a ticket and get a whoosh test performed like Chris suggest (I did this myself a while back). However, due to the Data Protection Act (if I recall correctly) only the ISP that provides the ADSL service to the line can perform whoosh test and look at your line stats - so BT will need to be contacted for your friend.

If you are connected when the whoosh test is performed you will loose synch for a few seconds.

A modems will give you a db figure as well as a router will. e.g. I have a Intel Anypoint 3240 modem that came with BT Openworld last year and that gives all the stats that routers do.

Next time, I can ask our IT upstairs to do the Woosh... or take my nice little D-Link router to have a look :lol:

Unfortunately not all modems or even all routers give you the line figures. Cry
