Can I go faster?


[link to this post]
 
I'm on ADSL2+ with Plusnet and just got an unlocked HG612 to replace the old unlocked Sky modem/router I was bridging through. Considering I live quite close to the exchange (8.5dB attenuation), I was wondering if my speeds are as good as they can get, or if something might be slightly amiss:

HG612 is running SP08, QOS is disabled, atm bridged to an Airport Extreme doing PPPoE. Apparently ptm has lower overhead (?) though it seems to be a VDSL2 only thing as I couldn't get it to work.

Downstream/Upstream:

BTW Speed Test: 17.02Mbps / 0.96Mbps
IP Profiles: 17.74 Mbps, 0.83Mbps

Attainable rate (kbit/s): 22768 / 1352
SNR margin (dB): 2.3 / 5.3
Line attenuation (dB): 8.5 / 4.7
Output power (dBmV): 20 / 12.2
Line rate (kbit/s): 20112 / 1162

On ADSL2+ you need PPPoA not PPPoE. You also need some other settings, such as ATM. They should be in the booklet that came with your introductory booklet. (I'm assuming you got one, as in most cases it comes with the freebie router I assume you didn't want).

Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 52.8 (interleaved)/15.0Mbps @ 600m. - IPv4BQM IPv6BQM

I'm using the HG612 in bridged mode with another router, so unless I've missed something, PPPoA isn't an option as far as I'm aware, and as I said, I'm using ATM on the modem.

Sorry - shoot me now!

Sorry, I completely misunderstood your opening post, as well as missing the ATM frown.

I don't think I've ever seen such low attentuation figures. Your connection is probably as fast as it ever will be on ADSL2+. Bridging your wi-fi network will halve its speed, however.
