      Firstly welcome,

      DLM will run first which can take 10 days to complete, to get the best out of your connection you should make sure your hooked up to the master socket in the house as this should give the best possible performance. The below will show you what a master NTE socket will look like aswell as describing where to find the test socket, just in case.

      Sky User - How to test your Master Socket

      Would also be handy to have the full set of stats which again the link below will describe.

      How to get your router statistics

      From that a rough idea of potential speed can be given

      As in the whole lot not just the downstream details

      Having said that, at present that's going to be it so if you've got a test socket try it and repost your stats

      Ah over looked that, with 45dB attenutation it could potentially be 7-8Mbps, however with your current noise margin your not going to get much more than you already have, try the test socket to see if the stats improve as there may be an internal wiring fault that needs to be addressed.

      What speed did you get with your last ISP? As mentioned, you are not going to get a lot more, but there is the potential to nearly double your speed. Follow the links to your Test socket.
