      Please look at my router stats and advise on potential speed increase

      Hi, thanks to all those people who replied to my earlier post regarding upgrading from Base to Everyday. DLM has now kicked in and my current stats are: -

      Connection Speed 5019 kbps 606 kbps
      Line Attenuation 35 db 18 db
      Noise Margin 14 db 9 db

      Since DLM is now drawing to a close, based on the above stats is it worth me phoning Sky and asking them to manually configure the line? If so, what sort of speeds do you think are possible given the above stats? Many thanks!

      Thanks for that. Am I right in assuming that DLM lasts for ten days from the first re-sync as opposed to ten days from the date of upgrade? My router logs shows it re-synced in the early hours of Monday and then again on Wednesday but nothing since. Thanks.

      10 days is just the average time it takes, it could take twice that, it's not set in stone and depends on the line and conditions.

      Can you plug into your Test socket, link below, and try taking your stats from there? You should be able to get 10Mb, but it does not look as if your noise margin will allow it.
