      Bad stats?

      Hi all,

      I am no computer whizz so therefore know sweet F.A about BB. I used the tool from this site to find out my stats and think that they are quite poor, they are as follows:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 608 kbps 768 kbps
      Line Attenuation 60.0 db 31.5 db
      Noise Margin 11.9 db 12.0 db

      Is the line noise to high and therefore one of my filters bad? I should be getting around 2meg where I am, granted I have only been connected today, so will have to let the line settle down.
      The line attenuation is bothering me though, should it bother me?

      just proves you've got a long line and 2Mbps will be the most you'll get - if at all...

      hmmm, attenuation going down is a bit weird - you change anything?

      Probably DLM messing around. I would not be surprised if the speed ends up back where it started. Oh for the good old days when lines were just left to get on with it.

      line is on gdmt so wouldn't have thought it's DLM - although some lines are set to gdmt from that start so maybe...my guess is bad setup...

      6, 7, and 8 - So instead of DLM messing it up, a human being did it
