      Poor online gaming performance recently

      Online gaming is now all but unplayable for me but I would still like to give Sky and myself a chance to sort it out.
      To this end I have ordered an ADSL faceplate, some ADSL cable and will also get some Homeplugs on order.
      For Sky's part I just rang and spoke to a very helpful but not very knowledgable Inidan lady who said she would attempt to 'reprofile' my line.

      Gaming was bad before, now its 300+ latency and basically unusable.

      Stats are:
      System Up Time 48:36:36
      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN PPPoA 732175 845881 0 459 4785 48:35:33
      LAN 10M/100M 33101 0 0 40 0 48:36:29
      WLAN 11M/54M 887448 769468 0 4990 567 48:36:21


      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4608 kbps 864 kbps
      Line Attenuation 37.0 db 18.5 db
      Noise Margin 10.6 db 12.0 db

      At a glance she seems to have lowered my connection speed from approx 5500and raised my noise margin from 6.5-7. Does this mean anything to anyone? I guess I need to ring again tomorrow
