      Re: Have i been Capped ?

      I don't claim to be an expert, but I'll share my own experience with you. A couple of weeks ago I had a similar problem that happened overnight. After eliminating all the obvious causes, such as internal wiring, dodgy filters etc, I called out BT to check the line. They said they were having temporary problems of bad weather causing increased noise on the exchange lines, but scheduled a visit. Before their visit, my system suddenly went back to normal so I cancelled their visit. Since then everything has been fine. The giveaway seems to be your Noise Margin - even at your reduced speed, it is only just over the threshold of 7db, so it looks to me like a noisy line, rather than a SKY cap. Also, I would have thought a SKY cap would be at an obvious exact binay figure, such as 2048 or 1024?

      Best of luck.

      You don't appear to be capped.
      Looks like you have internal wiring issues.
      Can you give us the results from the TestSocket?
