      What u on now mid ? profile says not on sky
      Full stats are required to give a proper opinion - use this to get them make sure you use the router for 24hrs before posting
      Sky Netgear DG834GT utility version 0.4
      initial thoughts r that your noise margin is quite low but the full stats should reveal why
      cheers

      Re: is it worth me moving to Max

      Moving to Max gives you "unlimited" downloads and a higher upload speed. It only gives higher download speeds if your line can handle it and take ADSL2+.

      Your attenuation on G.DMT at 33db would move to ~36db on ADSL2+ giving you a probable connection sync of ~12500kbps. However, looking at your current noise margin it looks to me like you have line issues, so with your current line condition, even on ADSL2+ you'd still sync at ~8meg.

      To get higher speeds you first need to fix your line problems - see the cabling and faceplate help forum. Once fixed, moving to Max and ADSL2+ would give higher speeds.
