      Stats Question - not the usual one!

      I was activated on Tuesday pm (7 June 2011) but have not received a router yet. Borrowed my son's spare Sky router & successfully connected at the usual 4meg.

      Attenuation is 30dB , SRNM was 14.6dB.

      This morning Thursday (9 June) I woke to the following stats:-

      System Up Time 13:50:08
      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN PPPoA 33981 53395 0 3281 32528 00:37:07
      LAN 10M/100M 392792 222343 0 11013 472 13:50:05
      WLAN 11M/54M/108M 2665 0 0 11 0 13:49:59

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 14499 kbps 945 kbps
      Line Attenuation 30.0 db 19.0 db
      Noise Margin 7.4 db 16.2 db

      Now I'm not complaining but isn't this rather quick to get up to such a speed?


      Some history:-

      On Orange I was getting about the same d/l speed but on a 10dB profile & with tweaking I could push that to 16.6meg at 6dB with my modded DGN2000.

      Sky estimate 15.5meg which would be just about right for 7dB.

      I've got an NTE5 master with a filtered faceplate & cat5 cable from there to my router.

      Last night I was playing around to try get my DGN2000 to work , managed to get a green light connection , IP addy etc but no browsing. Will investigate this further anyway.

      Any comments or explanations would be welcome.

      With a good line, the speed will sometimes shoot right up to near the maximum on its first sync. You might find it drops a bit when your upstream improves, as it should do. I would be careful messing around with another router if I were you. When DLM training is running, the disconnections can be interpreted as line faults and the speed capped as a consequence. It is better to leave the attempts to connect your own router till after DLM is complete.

      Good point. I can certainly wait until then.
