I'm new to Orange and ADSL. Have only ever had cable in the past but have moved to an "uncabled area" even though next door has cable.
I've been looking at the downstream and upstream rate on my Brightbox (1492 MTU limited version) and i'm a bit worried! I'm currently in the 10-day learning period, at first the downstream would range between 4Mbps and 5Mbps but now it struggles to get to 2Mbps.
I have the modem connected to the test socket in the master socket, i am using a XF-1e microfilter and have disconnected the phone.
Here's the exchange information: http://www.samknows.com/broadband/exchange/MYIDL
The exchange is ~1.4 miles by road and ~0.9 miles as the crow flies.
I don't know which stats are relevant from my router but i can post them (when i know which ones to post!)
I just want to find out if i'm getting the most out of my line and whether the learning period gives you an accurate reading of what speeds you're likely to get after 10 days.
