After a few days you should reach your stable sync speed and then you can just leave it running. If you are indeed on Mid, then this is not necessary.
      yeah this is very weird, i'm only paying for mid, i get mid download speeds (ish, probably less) but if i go on a speed test i upload at 400kbs and download at 4000kbs, which is incredibly weird

      The image you have posted indicates that you are not actually connected, which with a noise margin of 1 db is not surprising. You are on Connect at the moment, which is BT's ADSLMax, so give it a few days to settle down, before you do anything. With ADSLMax, there is no need for capping as the line will eventually negotiate it's stable speed. You may find your eventual speed is a bit lower than you have now. The main thing is making sure your internal wiring is causing as few problems as possible, as discussed earlier in the post.
