Is there a setting that I need to change, or does it generally download that slow?

HiMatty I moved your thread to try and get you a little more response

Your connection speed is good for the attenuation you have. Your noise margin looks low (I'm not on connect so don't know if this is typical).
Does it change if you reboot your router?
You say your speed is low. How are you testing it?

you have the highest sync speed (assuming your on connect or 8mb)
how are you testing the download speed you are getting, and what are your current results.
what is the "slow" speed? and how are you testing it.

Using speedtest.net atm.
and these are my latest results . May just be torrents with poor bandwidth as it seems to be settling down a little now

That's a pretty respectable speed for an 8 meg connection on a Saturday morning. Great ping times too.

@adamma, your connection looks fine, not the full whack but it doesnt seem like a major problem, you should get the full speed in off peak hours, if the service is busy.
