Re: 21CN, should have been today...(15/7/11)


[re: RobertoS] [link to this post]
 
As the 21CN change was only Friday I'll give Eclipse time to swap us over.

The router is a "TENDA W300D Wireless -N ADSL2+" according to the description on the order. I looked specifically for one marked ADSL2+. It wasn't too bad to set up and gives a good stable connection so far.

Not a major player, I know, but cost was an issue. I would have loved to get a box with more than 4 wired outlets to save having a hub attached.

OK - ADSL2+ enabled, now showing a synch of 5280kbps down and 448kbps up.
We have to let it settle for a few days, I'm told.

I am a bit confused. Before the changeover I had results like:

1. Best Effort Test
Download speedachieved during the test was - 3572 Kbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 600-7150 Kbps.
Additional Information:
Your DSL Connection Rate :5408 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for your line is - 4500 Kbps

7150 Kbps
Max Achievable Speed

2. Upstream Test:
Upload speed achieved during the test was - 357 Kbps
Additional Information:
Upstream Rate IP profile on your line is - 448 Kbps


now it shows:

Download speedachieved during the test was - 4097 Kbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 1200-4000 Kbps.
Additional Information:
Your DSL Connection Rate :5280 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for your line is - 4500 Kbps

4000 Kbps
Max Achievable Speed

Upload speed achieved during the test was - 352 Kbps
Additional Information:
Upstream Rate IP profile on your line is - 448 Kbps


The IP Profile rate stayed the same yet the max achievable has gone down, with a bang. The downstream DSL connection rate has dropped overall, but I really don't know what I'm looking for in these figures as the TBB speedtest results have hardly changed, I had 4.1kbps last week and 4.1kbps this week.

I'm just keeping an eye on it all, but was puzzled about that max achievable value.

Just means the Database has updated with real data from your line, to show they expect you to vary between 1200 and 4000Kbps, so performing better than expected today.

Old figures were just the standard, we have no clue settings.

The things that have changed do nothing to alter your actual speed. Sometimes too many numbers causes to much angst.

I'm starting to get the picture, take note of actual connection speed and ignore some of the other values as they don't mean a lot to the end user ?

I was an analyst/programmer in a previous role, we used a 64 character hex string in the INI file to control user access to certain programs, of which only 6 of those characters actually did anything !

The upload is still capped at 448kbps. That suggests still an ADSL1 profile but probably on a WBC (21CN/ADSL2+) line.

Or maybe Eclipse just don't give over 448 upload. Upload speeds either aren't on their website or are very well hidden.

I noticed that - I was wondering if the OP has actually moved to 21CN !
Or whether the problem is with the routers 20CN modulation or with the ISP as you say...

If I was the OP I would be asking my provider some questions smile

EDIT: http://www.eclipsenetworks.co.uk/broadband.php says "Up to 1.3mbps upload speed" so there shouldn't be an artificial cap.

From my experience Eclipse have pretty good customer services - sorry if I've missed any earlier comments in this thread as i've only speed read things wink

That's Eclipse Networks - we're with Eclipse (http://www.eclipse.net.uk/) as business bronze customers on this one.
I have a support call open so can go back to them to ask if what I am seeing isn't right.

The router is a Tenda, the Kitz site says "Unfortunately there doesnt appear to be a way to get full stats from the web interface frown".
Heve you tried experimenting with the CLI interface it suggested?
