      Re: Confused about speed I'm getting

      Hey guys, a quick update/follow up. My speeds have again gone back to being poop;

      Downstream 761 kbps
      Upstream 415 kbps
      Line Attenuation 29 db Down and 16.7 Up
      Noise Margin 16.3 db Down and 20 Up

      Is it normal for DLM to be decreasing my speed constantly? Will my four days of having dodgy wiring make the speed be capped at a lower speed than it should be?

      That's not DLM, that's something your end. This in the test socket?

      Going by your first post and your last your line has gone from being stupidly long (60dB+) to relatively short (29dB) - something definitely isn't right

      Yeah that's the test socket with a filter attached. When my speed went back up to 11 it went down to 7 the next day then 4, then 1.5 and now 750ish today. So if that's not DLM then my wiring is dodgy I suppose? If it is DLM then my wiring/line is still dodgy!

      Anyone got any ideas? I'm kind of stumped!

      Likely to be an external line fault
