      Hey,
      I just wondered what the max speed you thought i could get was, here are my stats

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 17836 kbps 1022 kbps
      Line Attenuation 25.0 db 11.1 db
      Noise Margin 7.1 db 7.5 db

      That said i'm only getting about 1.1 mb download speed ( when downloading files) and heres what speedtest says.

      Well, with the SNRs at the moment - not much more at all. If you can plug into your test socket and re-take the stats to see if there are any change in noise values.

      Regarding the speed results, they aren't exactly out of the ordinary. Do you connect wirelessly or via ethernet connection?

      You are topping out your sync speed, I doubt you will get anymore.

      Ignore the Speedtest.net result. You are syncing at 17mb so should be downloading aroung 80-90% of this. If you are using wireless, try a wire.
