today's thoughts: can you run adsl over a literal wet string?
i'd totally test this so i can finally put this to rest (it's been bugging me randomly for months) but i lack string, and more croc clips.
Resistance. Note there is no wetting current on this pair - not necessarily needed for a dry pair (pun not intended)
So I want to go set some insane margins on this but can't remember the password for our DSLAM. Rip.
I've re-wetted the string and it's super salty, so we got this far. Maybe the string is too thick. I could try getting sync with some thread tomorrow.
I'm using an old Norstar Meridian Modular and a spinny chair as my "telephone poles" 😂
!!! I walked off, and we got sync! Check that attenuation and upstream speed! 😂☎💻🌍⚡
Better upstream rate this time, lower downstream. Attenuation lower overall. Will try wrapping copper around the string ends later rather than croc clips as the clips are likely the hindrance here.
