      Is my speed too slow?

      Hi All,

      Is my speed too slow? I would certainly value your opinion.

      Here are some stats off my router;

      System Up Time 01:15:06
      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN PPPoA 3380 3655 0 711 2543 00:15:47
      LAN 10M/100M 84796 98576 0 9607 15968 01:15:04
      WLAN 11M/54M 0 0 0 0 0 00:00:00


      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 3808 kbps 416 kbps
      Line Attenuation 56.0 db 31.5 db
      Noise Margin 6.1 db 13.0 db

      I'm on the Sky Mid (8Mb)package. Unfortunately my computer is located upstairs away from the master socket, so hence uses an extension cable too the front bedroom.

      Thank you.

      Your attenuation of 56db would support a maximum of ~4000kbps so you're close to the limit. If you have a stable connection then be happy

      PS. Watch that noise margin. 6.1db is nearing trouble level.

      Thanks Saturday. Sometimes I do lose connection but this maybe caused by upnp, so will look at this later. I also look into the noise attutention. Again thanks for your help.
