      Download Speeds?

      Is there a way to speed these up as its going slower than when I had 1mb broadband!

      I connect at 6.688kbps
      Upstream at 448kbs
      Line Attentuation 45.0db down stream
      24.5db upstream

      Noise margin is
      5.6db downstream
      22db upstream

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

      @matty

      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.

      Matty
      what is the "slow" speed? and how are you testing it.

      download speeds

      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.
