      Question Connection speed

      Have been on Mid nearly 12 months and after a DML debacle many moons past have considering the line a reasonable connection especially after router software V2.02.44 arrived.

      Connection speed 2796 kps normal, after several hours usual noise reduction and sometimes reconnect around 2700 kps late evening. Past 2 weeks somewhat lower with same noise/attenuation, today as below - any comments please?

      System Up Time: 16:36:09 - Tue 24/02/09 @ 09:28 On overnight!
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 2496 kbps 416 kbps
      Line Attenuation 60 db 31 db
      Noise Margin 9 db 13 db

      System Up Time: 00:02:25 - Tue 24/02/09 @ 09:33 Reboot via software!

      Could be a setup issue.

      Can you describe your physical setup?

      I think you have simply rebooted at a quiet time on the line. You might find your noise margin falls later in the day as the lines get noisier. With a bit of luck you will not drop out so you can enjoy your faster speed.

      Yes you are spot on, just home and still @ 2976:

      System Up Time: 11:12:26 - Tue 24/02/09 @ 20:43
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 2976 kbps 416 kbps
      Line Attenuation 60 db 31 db
      Noise Margin 4 db 13 db

      This is where I was prior to the last couple of weeks - was hoping for some comment on the identical noise levels with 20% download increase.
