      Line attenuation question

      Hi all,

      I have been reading that upstream attenuation should be roughly half of downstream.

      My question is what if its not, lets say downstream was 40 and upstream was 10 for example, what would this signify?

      Thanks

      Not so much "should be" as will typically be.

      In the past where I've seen big differences between the two figures as in your example, it's turned out to be the router misreporting.

      If those are your actual figures, power off the router for a few minutes then power back up and check your stats. If still the same, post them here and we can see if there's anything obviously wrong.
