ADSL2+ upgrade


[link to this post]
 
Sorry if this is a silly question but as I have tried and failed to find an answer, hopefully someone can help.

I have just been upgraded to ADSL2+. BT says that I should get 17Mps or so.

Do I have to wait for things to settle down before this is achieved?

Do I need to tweak anything on the modem?

Is your modem/router capable of ADSL2+ (some older ones aren't) What make model is it?

Belkin Share Wireless-N ADSL2+ F7D3402uk.

If it ain't ADSL2+, someone is going to law!

Post you router stats. See http://kitz.co.uk/adsl/frogstats.php

Nobody will stop you going to law but I'd lay odds of a thousand to one that you won't gain anything!

Are these the Stats?
212.159.6.10
ADSL
Type Interleave Path
Status Show Time
Downstream Upstream
Data Rate (kbps) 8128 448
Noise Margin (dB) 14.5 26.0
Attenuation (dB) 12.8 7.5
Output power(dbm) 18.0 12.4

As to law, it says ADSL2+ on the box and the invoice. If it isn't then the dealer is in breach of contract.

You're still on a fixed 8meg speed by the look of those stats.

NOTE: if the exchange has just has the WBC upgrade, it still needs your actual broadband provider to put through an order to move you to the new hardware at the exchange.

Does your modem allow you to select the mode, e.g. ADSL (g.dmt) or ADSL2+ (g.992.5) or auto? As rockh says you are connected as standard ADSL.

I asked my ISP (Plusnet) to upgrade me to ADSL2+. There was some twoing and froing with BT but eventually Plusnet said " Your regrade order has now completed and your account has been updated".

As I saw no improvement, I made my post to you.

I assume from the comments that either my ISP or BT has to do something to uplift the speed. What needs doing?
