I was up at the Admin ofiice for a Society of which i am a member on Tuesday to add machines to the Network and improve Security, and whilst there took a look at the Broadband Stats, just to check that all was fine. Noticed that the connection rate had dropped from 17677 to 5791, but there had been a jump in line attenuation, especially on upstream.
I am presuming this jump is reason for drop in line speed, but was wondering what would cause such a jump in Line attenuation and the best way to get the line performing correctly again.
Line Speed 17677 979
Attenuation 16.5 7.2
SNR Margin 9.1 7.5
Stats now (as best i can remember, forgot to write them down)
Line Speed 5791 808
Attenuation 20 18
SNR Margin ? ?
They are not too worried about it being fixed right away as only mainly used for e-mailing, but obviously would prefer speeds, back to what they should be.
