      Hi Just getting my Router connected after I noticed my previous supplier stopped working, just to reassure me is it normal for these settings to appear when first plugging in the new Modem;

      Connection Speed 4095 kbps 605 kbps
      Line Attenuation 2.5 dB 4.0 dB
      Noise Margin 15.2 dB 21.8 dB

      also I Think its a ten day router checking!

      PS Iam only 65 metres away from the telephone exchange maybe 2 minute walk from outside my front door

      WOW, 2db attenuation - lowest I've seen apart from my GF's parents (1db)

      I'd be expecting 20Mbps

      Yep few years ago when I had a line installed the engineer did a test on the line using laptop he informed me off the specs and did three more line tests to put his mind at rest :-)

      Now how do I telnet into this new router as I cannot get in and think it may be blocking access from telnet.

      Why do you need to telnet into it? It's on custom Sky FW

      You can log into it by going to 192.168.0.1, username admin password sky

      2.5dB attenuation... Wow. Noise margin isn't fantastic though.

      noise margin was at 11 on my Vigor 2820N. thinking they put that down to 7 when training is done as I will request the gaming profile .

      I just would have thought you'd have more margin on a line that good. What sort of setup do you have in terms of telephone wiring?
