Thanks for the reply.
I had no choice as my internet had disconnected!
My stats are now:

SNR Margin (dB): 13.5 21.0
Attenuation (dB): 45.5 23.0
Output Power (dBm): 20.0 12.0

My logs showed up this error before it went off, if it means anything...

My speeds were also slow and I got the following result from BT speedtester:
Download speedachieved during the test was - 822 Kbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 600-7150 Kbps.
Your DSL Connection Rate :6240 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for your line is - 5500 Kbps
I`ve recently had a fault on my line. It was a voice fault, and the engineer changed the cable from the pole to my property. Before i`d been seeing a lot of disconnections. I don`t hear any noise on the line now though, so this may be a new issue I have.
He did at the time mention that some of the ducts had collapsed around here, and sure enough they had been digging up the road from two houses down from me. Could this be part of my problem?( These house were further away from the exchange from me)
Sorry for the long post, and thanks for any help you can offer.
Edited to add:
I`m now using a brand new router and filter, and i`m in the test socket. Stayed in the test socket to be sure that my problem had gone. Also using a brand new corded phone, and had noticed that I get a couple of upstream errors when it rings in, but not sure on an outgoing call.
I will have a go properly with just the phone tomorrow, as I don`t want to make things worse, given the time of night.
