      The webpage is often days behind real life. You might find that one day it will just say the testing is complete and your speed has been set.

      6 days into DLM, and yesterday an upload speed of 932 cause instability on line so looks like they have dropped it. Was saying noise margin of 4, and unusable last night, because router was constantly resetting.
      But download dropped from 13307 for some reason, hope it goes back up!

      I'd expect it to get up to about 14mb on those stats

      Looks like DLM has finished:

      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN PPPoA 3598950 2925039 0 0 1818 52:52:55

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 12280 kbps 921 kbps
      Line Attenuation 28.5 db 13.1 db
      Noise Margin 11.0 db 10.5 db

      Any thought?
      Can't really see why download went down to be honest, but at least it is stable.
      Thanks.

      Re: Sky change over.

      Unless your noise margin is fluctuating a lot, you should be able to get around 14Mb. It may be worth giving Sky a call and see if they can improve your speed.

      Noise Margin 8.9 db 6.0 db

      These are the stats now, the only thing I can think of is the heat affecting the wire?
      Sounds daft?

      Router reset yesterday evening, and now on this.
      Is it worth phoning Sky to get the download back up at least?
      Thanks.

      I would say yes and your upload also needs a bit of attention, you should have more than that. Make sure you also mention that as they often forget.
