Re: unusual for me

When I saw the title, I wondered what might be unusual for you; my initial thoughts that it might be a post devoid of a link, attachment or image were unfounded...

Re: unusual for me

So who was the ***** who plugged a phone in without a filter
More seriously - you haven't got a monitored alarm which isn't filtered. If so the drops might be when it phones home due to a fault or the alarm going off

Re: unusual for me

On a serious note, it could have been any number of things that they might have been doing in the exchange at that sort of time.
Perhaps JB might be able to see if there is any log of work last night in that exchange, although I think he might only see the data in relation to specific issues, rather than having full access to the exchange work logs.

Re: unusual for me

Just checked the Radius logs with Sheffield, only the one disconnection, so good old BT dropped my profile from 7150 to 500,  now the wait for it to come back up

Re: unusual for me

Yesterday my PN profile was increased from 2000 to 3000kbps after 13 hours syncing at a higher rate. Not sure when the BT profile was increased but it was still showing 2000kbps after 4 hours at the higher sync. I am on the ADSL2+ trial and this is not the first time that the profile have changed after a few hours at a higher sync rate.
