      you may well have been capped, can you remember what you used to get before changing the max delays ?

      all looks like back to normal, give T3 a ring and they should remove some of the cap

      it was the D figure that denoted your max delay and this looks as it is set to 64 (which is standard)

      I thought the D figure related to Depth and not Delay, as per

Sky can set the DSLAM to have a max delay of, say, 10 milliseconds, and then the DSLAM and the router negotiate an interleave depth and block size such that no packet of data will arrive more than 10 milliseconds after it was sent, but the interleave depth will be different according to other factors, such as sync speed. A lower connection will have to have a lower interleave depth to achieve the same max delay, compared to a faster connection. This is why you sometimes see people who have very slow sync speeds with Sky (because they're so far from the exchange) having lower interleave depths than the 64 down, 8 up that is most common.

      But don't ask me what the default max delay figure is that Sky use, because I have no idea. At a guess I'd say it's 20 milliseconds on my connection, but I've no idea if that's the universal default.
      or did i misunderstand.

      its a trade off, faster sync but higher pings or lower sync with lower pings....having the low delays will mean that unless the line is perfect error build up will increase so its up to you really...

      could well be, it was the figure i thought related (hopefully some one else could advise)
