      Can't say I agree with the above

      Your attenuation at 45db offers the potential of a sync speed of ~8000kbps, provided you had a relatively "quiet", good quality line.

      Your low sync and very low noise margin shows your line is not at all quiet. Chances are that you can do something about this (get rid of that extension I bet you're using) and you'll find plenty of advice in the cabling and faceplate help forum. You may not be able to get the full 8meg possible but you should see some improvement and should certainly be able to improve that noise margin and enjoy a more stable connection.
