Hello Folks:

I have had a few ADSL connection challenges and have received help while in a game. My suggestion is to share connection issue tips.

My connection is in another room so I drilled a hole in the wall to reach my connection. I was told that the cord should be no longer than 10 feet.

I have a battery back up and had my telephone cord plugged into the surge connection. I was loosing connection quite often until someone on a game chat told me to move it to the computer input.

i tried several things, and the best i could do was a slow connection (usually between 14.4 and 28.8 kbps). since the nearest phone jack is about 30 feet away, i used 2 old 900MHz cordless phones and built a cordless modem. it worked, but as i said, the speeds were really slow. after playing with this for some time, i was able to isolate the problem to interference on the 900MHz band, which is widely used. the only interesting thing about this setup was that i was able to play with the scrambler chip and pick up phone conversations from neighbors using cordless phones... but anyways, by changeing the frequency that the phones transmitt on, i can get away from some of the interference. i was able to do this a little, but the phones i was using couln't go far enough outside the 900MHZ band to help much. not to mention it would be violating FCC regulations.... i'm not sure if i'll be able to get my wireless modem idea to work, but i thought it was a cool idea

Great utility for connection tweaking: www.cablenut.com.

(Works with DSL as well... as misleading as the name may appear. )
