      How does this look?

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 2112 kbps 448 kbps
      Line Attenuation 63.0 db 31.5 db
      Noise Margin 7.3 db 10.0 db

      Live about 3.3km (as crow flies) from Birstwith exchange

      Do not have a good understanding of the numbers above, so hoping someone might tell me if it looks OK.

      I have had no problem since I hard-wired router to PC; wireless connection was rubbish.

      Thanks.

      You have quite a high attenuation, so you will not braek any speed records and that as a stable connection is not too bad. If you are not connected through the master socket you could try that, or the test socket under the master faceplate if you have one. That may increase your speed a somewhat.
      This FAQ might help a little it explains some of the terms used and it is not full of jargon.

      Welcome to the site uclown2002

      If your connection is stable and looking at the stats your not going to do much better than that due the the length of your line and you are happy to leave the router plugged into the PC then good luck and enjoy it

      Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.

      Well it does seem stable although I only hard wired it 2 days ago. I think 2 Mbs is max speed so I guess those figures are to be expected.

      I am using an extension socket but I do have microfilters fitted. Strangely, when I initially hard wired PC to master socket the downstream connection speed was in the low 400's. When I tried the extension socket I got 2112 Mbs.

      Work that one out!

      Results:-

      Download Speed: 1251 kbps (156.4 KB/sec transfer rate)
      Upload Speed: 357 kbps (44.6 KB/sec transfer rate)

      A little slower but acceptable??

      If you are happy with them, then yes acceptable.

      I am approx the same distance from a different exchange as you.

      I could only ever get about 3.2mb and then changed my faceplace, i now get approx 7mb.

      It is all to do with the length of the wires from the exchange. Although you are 3.3km the cable might go 5km to get to your house.

      What were you on before? ie speed and who with?
