How Does This Look?


[link to this post]
 
Please forgive me. I hope you don't mind my asking just moved from a very rural area (0.5Mb connection) to a town and quite excited about broadband that seems pretty quick!

I'm thinking that my SNR (from what I've read) should be higher on this attenuation but does the output power have anything to do with it?

The router also reports maximum bandwidth, but I really don't know what that's all about. I'm with Zen, on a standard dsl Max up to 8Mb connection

I'm really sorry to bore you with this, just would like to know how my line stats stack up. Only just rebooted and posted the figures here

Given that you're on standard ADSL it doesn't really matter as you are syncing as fast as possible downstream (8128 kbps) and as fast as normal upstream (448 kbps).

If you move to ADSL2+ you may have to check your wiring out as the maximum bandwidth of 9,664 kbps is way too low for that attenuation (my line has a attenuation of 20 with a maximum bandwidth of 18,080 kbps.

It might be worthwhile to check the stats from the hidden test socket within modernish BT master sockets.

I think the OP may be right about the output power having been lowered John. The subject isn't one I've looked at really, but I think that could account for the "maximum" being so low.

Damn short line! I wonder what exchange it is, not to be on ADSL2+.

Actually thinking about it that 9,664 kbps value is simply because the OP is synced using ADSL1. I just restarted my router in ADSL1 mode and it shows a similar figure of 10,048 kbps. blush
