      In the address bar on the browser type, 192.168.0.1

      Then the logon box comes up, username is admin and password is sky

      Then at the bottom of the screen if you scroll down click on the button that says connection stats and post then.

      Re: broadband speed

      The lower attenuation and higher noise margin show your internal wiring is have an effect on your broadband. Buying and using a filtered faceplate would give you the best chance of achieving your maximum possible speed.
