the line.

At the wires coming into my house I only got a reading of 2mv ac

I know back in the days of landline and DSL the voltage should have been
48vdc as best as I recall...however I don't know what a normal voltage
would be for broadband. Anyone here have that knowledge?

Thanks


Fortunately I can tether my machine to my smartphone to post this.




AT&T got here and checked my line all good.

The previous tech who was here 18 months ago replaced the router only and
the guy who was here said the power supply (with has a built in UPS) is not
compatible with it even though it had been working previously.


At any rate he replaced the router and it's DC supply and all is good


Does your setup have a separate modem and router then? I've never seen one
like that. When AT&T foisted the unneeded equipment change on me the
instructions were to not send back the power supply/UPS so I kept mine and
use it to power a Netgear gigabit switch in the equipment closet and it
handles that quite nicely.

AT&T has provided me what I believe is called a gateway router with
power supply. Nothing else, though I do have my own router for my home
network.

Since I worked for a Enersys-Delaware and two previous battery
manufacturers I have plenty of UPS's and batteries here so do not need
the AT&T UPS but what the heck since AT&T did not want it I kept it.

Heck it had a good Yuasa battery in it and Yuasa was one of the
companies I had worked for previously.


BTW: I never switched jobs since 1975 but the companies I worked for
kept getting bought out.
