      DLM finished on 16th..

      So...I've been gradually moving up from 4MB since activation date, and the top speed now is currently about 15MB.

      Looking at the Kitz website, it says for 22db attenuation, I should be looking at speed of 19520kbps. So was wondering if this is right, and I should be contacting Sky about this?

      Stats are;

      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN MER 8203082 16831658 0 546346839 2147483647 210:46:40
      LAN Down 0 0 0 0 0 293:52:56
      WLAN Up 16791614 8956059 0 2147483647 578216491 293:52:37
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 15358 kbps 1117 kbps
      Line Attenuation 21.5 dB 13.8 dB
      Noise Margin 6.7 dB 9.8 dB


      Also, I'm going to be using the connection a lot for gaming, I've been reading about a gaming profile, what exactly is this?

      Thanks!

      With that attenuation you're spot on for a Sky connection, possibly a bit more but not anything over 18Mbps

      It is reducing the interleaving depth to 8. Results in better latency/ping. DLM will probably have set your line to it already but you can always ring sky and found out.
      Speed is slightly low for your attenuation. If you have a test socket plug your router in there and post back your stats.
      The kitz calculator is based on the concept of a perfect line which does not exist in reality.

      I get exactly the same speed as you but my attenuation is very much higher at 31.5dB.

      I'd say something is not right somewhere.

      Indeed, I get 15196 (though I am still on DLM) with Att. of 27dB

      My Dad has a shade over 16400 and he has similar attenuation to me.
      Current Sync 79999/19999
