      Sync speed same Actual speed dropped?

      A few days ago i was getting sync speed of around 600 and a actual speed of around 600 which gave me a download speed of 60kbs.

      But recently my sync speed has stayed 600 ish but my actual speed has droped to 130 giving me a download speed of 15kbs.

      I have tried the following
      • used a diffrent computer
      • used a laptop wirlessly
      • changed the cat 5 cable 3 times
      • formatted and reinstalled windows xp
      • changed the router to a dg834 instead of the dg834gt
      • used master test socket 2000ish sync speed but the same actual speed
      • changed filters
      • turned modem off for over 10 hours
      • rebooted
      • TCPOptimser no effect
      • sweared at it

      using all these methods in many combinations the actual speed is never near the sync speed it was a few days ago but something changed and now i have pants broadband.

      I know I have another post on this subject and i apologise but i think this post makes things more clearer as i have learned and tryed more inthe past 24 hours .

      I'm not sure what you are adding in this post or what anyone can say that hasn't been said in your other thread

      As Tezcatlipoca has told you a couple of times, you have a high attenuation, noisy line - and you've let your noise margin drop to a level where your connection will be very unstable and downloads erratic. At an attenuation of 63.5db you are at the limit where you can expect a reliable service. Improving your wiring/filtering and keeping the noise margin up at 7db minimum will probably improve things.

      If you haven't already, please read the first sticky in my signature at the bottom of this post.
