      Yep, it looks like it is capped at that, it's strange that the attenuation has dropped by 1db. Could this mean the faceplate that is faulty? 1db would not normally make much difference but when the attenuation is so low to start with, it makes you wonder.

      Re: Connection Speed Query

      I had to move the router a lot closer to the telephone socket to do the test, so that might be the reason for the drop in attenuation.

      However, the good news is...
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 16380 kbps 765 kbps
      Line Attenuation 16 db 4 db
      Noise Margin 13 db 13 db

      So a big thanks to everyone who who helped....it was much appreciated

      Re: Connection Speed Query

      are those last stats from the test socket (is that the only difference being in the test socket or had you spoke to CST)?

      Those last stats are what I am getting now after things were sorted at sky's end.
      (Using the test socket didn't make any difference)
