      also cheaper - so cheers for that saturday yes i presume the same colours (i've made up length's of cat5 for my home network before) just never like brian suggested
      just waiting on the bloody NTE-5 now *sigh

      Yes, also solid cable does not suit the crimp connections in RJ11 plugs which are designed to splice into stranded cable. Solid cable is better suited to fixed wiring where it is pushed into blade type connectors like on telephone extension sockets.

      I have never had any problems with solid core cable, but never mind, don't waste too much money on this, I bet you've got an old patch cable you could cut up and pull out a pair

      yeah ya could say that we've got hundreds of em at work hahaha (i have some cat5e cable anyway, when i was running fixed terminals in a couple rooms).
      Just waiting on the master NTE-5 now

      just fitted the new nte-5 had a right struggle with getting the cable *with outer sheath through, i would love to know whom thought it a good idea to just push through the strands of the droplink and not the whole cable... anyway as you can see.. not a bloomin difference, im currently hard wired with laptop to router, the router with a rj11 going into a filter then straight into the test socket... am i missing something now

      Red face Re: Attenuation/ downstream low

      downstream and noise now seems to have stabalised a little... would anyone care to comment on what am now getting, would you think now that i maybe capped at 2Mbit instead of the mid pakage iam suppose to be on

      anyway router stats steady all of today @ :

      Re: Attenuation/ downstream low

      ^^^ There could be a cap on the line, its not easy to tell from your varied stats. Certainly the SNR/sync speed now are better than they have been before.

      Keep an eye on both figures. If the sync never goes above 1856 but the noise margin increases, then this would indicate a cap. Complete your wiring improvements then contact Sky and ask for it to be upped or removed. If the sync speed varies wildly and the noise margin stays about the same, this would probably indicate intermittent noise on the line which is not so easy to eliminate. Still you are moving in the right direction!

      With your line attenuation you are unlikely to get much above ~3 Mbps sync with every source of noise removed.

      Hi mate thanks for your comments... the router is giving the steadiest figures ever today!
      Still 1856kbps and 9dB noise margin. When you say complete your wiring, do you think i should still invest in the adsl nation facepplate (will it make any difference?) now.. just to re-itterate, i now have router connected to nte-5 direct to test socket, albeit through an adsl filter dongle thingy... no other extensions at all!
      cheers again... glad iam at least getting towards the infamous 2Mbps
