I’ve always have connections problems due to the distance between my home and the central.
I’ve already have a Linksys WRT54GL who’s working fine. I’m currently using a thomson speedtouch 510 as modem.
There is my connection information:
Uptime: 0 days, 7:41:16

I wonder which modem, can I buy to avoid connection problem?
Is there router which include router than can easily be flashed with dd-wrt?
All that my ISP suggests to me is to reduce my synchronisation profile... (I’m for Belgium and still not having ADSL2 or so, still in basic ADSL for a while I think).
For now I synchronized to 4.096/ 512, and they suggest: 3.300/ 384 or 2.000/512, what doesn’t please me.
DD-WRT has not been ported to devices with built-in ADSL modem, nor does DD-WRT include packages to support this.
Changing the modem will probably not help anything at all. Your problem is that the noise on your line, and the distance.
Depending on your telco and the infrastructure, remember that DSL is sensitive to interference and crosstalk, and to worsen it all, DSL create a certain amount of this too. So if the copper cables (landline) from the DSLAM to your modem are of older date, then this will weaken the signal.
If we furthermore add the longer distance, this will in itself give a weaker signal.
All you can do, is check your phone cabling at your end. If your landline is longer than needed, shorten it. Keep it separated from power cables, antenna cables and other cables which can induce interference.
