Annex Mode : Annex A/L
Looks wrong. Should be Annex A (or Annex M).

Specifying M, it fails to synch, specifying A it still connected saying Annex A/L

I believe L is extended-reach, limited to 8Mb. Maybe new firmware required?

Try ADSL2 mode, might push you to 12 Meg at least.

Looking at my review, it picked annex a/l for a Sky line, but that line synced at 6.6 Meg so any limits from A/L were not obvious.

Failing that have you tried Asus support in the UK, there was a firmware update when i was reviewing, as the original firmware was a real dog. So this might be something they have a fix for on the way, or some older firmware that might work better in this case.

Thanks Andrew, I'll give it a go, it did briefly synch at a higher speed but then reverted, there has also been an updated firmware but no joy, in fact my downstream has dropped to 833Kbps. Ah the joys :>

I am with TT as well and i have the same modem
1-
what firmware is the latest you have? can you name it?

2-
Did was the same SNR value with the other modem? If it was ask TT to lower it because the asus is reporting SNR Down 15.7 db
Unless ...
... the asus make it higher ... if yes you must have played with stability adjustment and you set it at negatives values -5

3-
I have the same asus n55u and i am getting with SNR 9 (fastpath) Line Attenuator Down 28-29db (yours is 22db according to asus report, so you should have higher speed) ... the following results

asus n55u 12-13mb (depending reboot) not tweaked (stability adjustment to 0)
DrayTek 2830n 14-15mb (not snr adjustments can be made)
TT modem (dsl2680) 14-15mb, no possible tweaks

If i tweak the asus i am getting 16mb (set stability adjustment to +5 value)

Points to note (annex M it does not work for me either at both modems)

Go to administration >> advanced>>dsl settings and set manually adsl2+
Set manually annex A (will still report annex A/L but seems not worries)
Go to stability adjustment and from 0 set to +5
Try SRA off (with on to me seems getting better ping)

Latest beta firmware is ...4.364.1 here post#27
http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?id=2013041921400...

You can also use a beta which is allowing the asus to work as stand alone router (and using the isp modem) using one of the 4 lan ports as an incoming wan

Firmware here
http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?id=2013042221294...

I personal using the beta ...5.364 which is allowing to use it as stand alone router if ever i need

Remember changing each firmware it needs master reset...is a must
I also have find that loading same firmware 2 times in a raw is more stable (following by master resets)

Report back improvements

EDIT##

Thanks MrSaffron for your review ... is was due to YOU i got this modem and i am happy by now because asus added SNR tweak and the use of just router (using one of the 4 lan ports as an incoming wan) so Thanks Both of you

I also added an old screenshot of mine to compare it (one of the very little times it locket over 14mb with out tweak it)

Hi, I have this modem and I am on talk talk, the router is fine and performing as well as it is going to in a low speed area, but for some reason my landline phone has stopped working. I have tried swapping back to the talk talk modem, with no improvement. I am relying on the auto setup for talk talk which gets internet signal but the landline has stopped getting a dial tone, the ASDL modulation is set to multiple mode but swapping to ASDL2 or ASDL2+ causes loss of ASDL connection I have tried a couple of the annexes it is currently set to all but any of these settings I change seems to throw off the ADSL link, does anybody have any ideas what maybe causing this problem? Thanks

If the landline (voice) is not working when all the ADSL hardware is unplugged from the line, including filters, then its report a voice fault to TalkTalk the state of the broadband is irrelevant.

Fixing voice is likely to improve broadband anyway
