SNRM falls at night, but does not recover completely next day

My ADSL2+ target noise margin is 3dB. as is to be expected, the margin falls considerably overnight. The next day I would expect to see it recover to near the target, but it only increases to less than 2dB, very rarely higher.

Is the router faulty, or is there another explanation? Any advice friends? Please!

I would try switching router off and after 30 secs or so, switch it back on again to make a new connection.

Less than 2dB does sound a bit too low, but if you're not getting any disconnections then I don't think you should worry about it.

@lotvic On the rare loss of sync I do as you suggest

@Secret-Squirrel

It doesn't present a problem. I am more interested why the SNRM does not rise to the the target. Might anyone enlighten me on that?

"I am more interested why the SNRM does not rise to the the target."

Noise on the line or an inferior router are two possible causes. What's your downstream attenuation?

"Att: 47dB"

I take it you're a long way from your exchange. The longer your line, the more potential there is to pick up unwanted noise and interference and that could account for why the SNR struggles to get above 2dB.

According to Kitz Distance:- Direct: 2.04 km By Road: 2.6 km

Attenuation is for ADSL2+ connection.

The SNRM target was reduced to 3dB after a battery fault a year back, so the system must have thought line not too noisy.
