      Adsl2+

      How can I tell if I'm actually on ADSL2+. Looked in the router pages and can't see anything which refers to the type of service connected.

      Thats funny -I was just about to post the same thing - I recently upgraded from Mid to Max - Sky's web page says the order is completed and the router dropped its connection not long after the order had been placed. I thought they had to do some work at the exchange.

      Stats are:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 11009 kbps 764 kbps
      Line Attenuation 35.5 db 20.4 db
      Noise Margin 7.8 db 15.5 db

      Just a matter of setting a few things remotely which drops the connection between you and the exchange, then its a matter of the router syncing back up, and authenticating.

      I recently upgraded from Mid to Max
      The figure 764 kbps shows that you are definitely on Max, Mid is 416 Kbps or 412 Kbps iirc

      As for ADSL2+ its not an easy task to show that setting. Although if the 764 kbps was to change to 796 kbps I think its a good indication.

      I thought they had to do some work at the exchange.
      Only to change from Connect to Base, Mid or Max is the work at the exchange needed.

      If you are connecting at more than 8Mbps then you are on ADSL2+,(unless you are on the DLM test) the alternate is G.DMT, which Sky cap at 8Mbps. An upload of 795/6 seems to indicate that the DLM test has been applied to a Max line, normally 764, 768 with G.DMT.
