I recently moved home and am now with Vodafone FTTC on a 76mbps package.
I decided to ditch the vodafone modem / router and today started using an unlocked HG612 3B modem I picked up from ebay, together with my ASUS AC88U router running wrt-merlin using PPPoE.
So far everything seems fine although I have noticed a drop in my line speed from about 47mbps to 39mbps. I just wanted to check if there is anything I can do to improve my connection as I seem to get 'interleaved path' and only occasionally 'fast path'. I game and would like to have everything as good as I can get it.
I ran DSL stats today for the first time and this is my log:

I see G.INP is not enabled. Is there anything I can do about this? I checked my local cabinet online and it seems to be running an ECI chipset. I thought these now are OK with G.INP?
Occasionally when I checked my old vodafone router stats it would say 'fast path'. I assume this is preferred over 'interleaved' and wondered if there is anything I can do to get back on this, or alternatively anything I should be checking and keeping an eye on in DSL stats as most of it is over my head.
