Tx Power, Signal to noise ratio, and tranceiver errors.

    Ok I have a DSL modem where I can manually change the Tx Power and the signal to noise ratio on the DSL line.

    I've been told that increasing the power is bad, because it creates more heat and can cause transmission errors, but wouldn't increasing it increase the signal on the line.

    Sometimes when rebooting the modem the signal to noise ratio goes up when the Tx power goes down.

    Having a higher signal to noise ratio increases my network performance a bit, but I want my TX power to increase as well so that signal degradation doesn't occur too much.

    Can anyone tell me what I can increase or decrease so that I don't receive too many transmission errors and latency?
