*Caution - explore
the router CLI and hidden pages at your own risk.*
Some of the Belkin
routers have hidden pages which contain information about your line
For some reason they aren't linked to from the main web interface
but you can access them by first logging into your router then using
the following urls.
Line Stats (inc SNR stats)
Line Stats (error stats)
QoS - Set up
QoS - Traffic Mapping
QoS - Traffic Mapping Stats
It would appear that these routers also have a similar chipset to
the USR 9106 router, in which case commands such as "adsl info --stats"
will work if you ssh into the shell.
There is more information about the busybox shell commands on
2100 CLI page which also has a similar chipset.
You can access the CLI using AxeSSH (Shareware - download here).
Increase the screen buffer
lines to make sure any
long responses don't vanish from the buffer before you can copy them
- set to 1000 lines to be safe.
found that the value you should use for the "ADSL configure --snr
value" command should be the percentage of your default margin
as set by BT - so if your default is 6 for example, and you want
to force it up to about 9, use ADSL CONFIGURE --SNR 150 (9 being
150% of 6), or to force it down to about 4.8, use ADSL CONFIGURE
--SNR 80 (4.8 being 80% of 6). Be aware though that snr varies
continuously though, so the percentage applied will be of the actual
snr at that millisecond, which is why I say you can set it to "about" 4.8
Theres some more useful information about the belkin router in that
thread which may be well worth a read.
Its worth pointing out that "adsl info --stats" has
a bug which means the line uptime never shows over one day, but
the correct uptime since the last router resync can be obtained from
Thanks to rhenn for bringing the CLI information to my attention.
