What should be my expected downstream attenuation on a line length of 2.1km?

Its very hard to answer this question, the line attenuation is affected by many different variables.
Such as line quality, line matterial, actual line length, your wiring inside your house.
Are you checking to find out what pottential speed you can get? Best to check the post code/tel number checkers, they are best guess, but they can and are often incorrect.
i hope this helps!

My line is 2.13Km. as the crow flies. Attenuation is 40-42 depending on which router I use. Have replaced faceplate, router is very close, 3 computers use wireless or powerhouse network adaptors. Pre DLM got steady 7616Kbps synch with actual speed about 80 - 90% (depends on speed tester). With DLM, assume it is still on my line, 6144 synch, actual 5300, very variable. Hope that is useful.

cheers, speaking to sky and apparently with a line length of 2.1km's my attenuation of 43db is too high, it should be low 30's? They reckon my line is almost dead straight from the exchange

check on samknows - find the exchange post code and then do a route planner to your post code - it'll give you a rough idea of distance...
and my attenuation is 45, 3.5K line and i get 4.5-5.5Mbps...
