      Any idea of my potential speed

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 6567 kbps 796 kbps
      Line Attenuation 33.0 db 18.4 db
      Noise Margin 9.4 db 12.0 db

      Router is connected to the master socket. I believe DLM has just started. Can anyone give me any idea of what speed I can expect to receive? Thanks

      7Mbps going by that, which isn't good. Try your test socket as you should be around 10Mbps at least

      If you have one, plug into the Test socket and take your stats from there. You are looking for a rise in the noise margin.

      As you are I would say you are looking at 7-8Mb.

      Re: Any idea of my potential speed

      They now read as follows.

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 6567 kbps 796 kbps
      Line Attenuation 33.0 db 18.4 db
      Noise Margin 12.1 db 12.0 db

      Would this result in any increase? Is there anything else I can do? Thanks
