We may ask for router stats or line stats when you've raised a ticket with our support team. These are also requested when opening a ticket and it's often quite useful to enter these if you are having connection issues to avoid us having to ask for them later.
The stats required relate to the broadband part of the router, so anything that references your local network (LAN) or wireless network (Wi-Fi) don't need to be included as they don't include any useful information.
We'll need the line rate, this is sometimes described as:
- Line Rate
- Data Rate
- Sync Speed
- Connection Speed
- Connection Rate
In addition to this, we'll need the attenuation figure. This is normally shown in dB (decibels) but may be referred to as loop loss too.
Finally, we will need the noise margin which will also be shown in dB, this can be also described as:
- Noise Margin
- SNR Margin
- SN Margin
- Signal to Noise Ratio
Once we've got these useful bits of information, we can generally assist you further. Whilst we don't have guides for finding this information from all routers, we do have some listed under the Router Statistics
section above but do welcome comments on how to find them on other devices so we can add them to the knowledge base.
