    Sra

    Hi,
    My provider suggested to turn on SRA (Seamless Rate Adaptation) on my modem to try to gain a more stable connection. Googled on this but found no posts (not even on this lounge!) about how to set this on a modem. Found it has to do with ADSL2. Although I can find SRA in the DSL-status of the modem, there seems to be no way to alter it. Concluded could be a setting at the provider and the modem (if suited) would recognize it and turn this setting on. Now it's off both ways as you can gather.
    Also found on a VDSL-connection there was in an other (same type) modem no mention of SRA, instead it said it had Bitswap on. Again googling I found some articles about SRA and Bitswap doing more or less the same thing: improve the stability of the connection.
    Anybody out there who knows more about these functions and on how to set them?

    Just being curious, TIA

    Did you ask your provider how to do it?

    What is the model of the modem?

    Hi Joe,
    tnx for you concern.
    Yes, it was the provider that came up with this idea.
    Meanwhile I have instructions from the modemfacturerer (AVM for Fritzbox) on how to do that: it's in German but some people don't mind about that <gr>: http://service.avm.de/support/de/SKB...DSL-Verbindung
    Moreover I'm interested in the technical stuf behind SRA and Bitswap.

    tnx again,
    Sjors

    See Wikipedia - G.992.3 for a discussion of SRA. This article ADSL Technology has information about bit swapping.

    I don't use ADSL so I can't comment about the utility of either.

    tnx Joep, I'll take a look into it.
    When there's no reply I'm satisfied.
