      Potential speeds?

      Hi All,

      Can I just get a quick check on my speed? I think it is about right but just wanted to make sure.

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 5022 kbps 605 kbps
      Line Attenuation 44.5 db 27.8 db
      Noise Margin 8.1 db 16.1 db

      Direct Line Distance: 1.93km

      Also, I have an old-style Master box (eg without the test socket). Given the stats above, is it likely I would get any gains from swapping the box over?

      Cheers

      It is not good considering the length of your line. How many sockets have you got in the house apart from the master?

      1 extension approximately 2m away and another about 16m away, all with microfilters.

      Any ideas about what I should expect (all things being equal)?

      Find out if these extensions are hard wired to your master socket. If yes then you need to replace your master socket with one of these.

      IDC Tool required for making the connections.

      No they aren't.

      They must be connected to a junction box then. Replace the junction box with a nte5 with a filtered faceplate in that case.

      No they aren't.
      Are they the type that plug into the face of the master socket? If they are, unplug them and try your stats. When you plug them back in, make sure they are plugged into a filter.

      If they are not connected to the master socket, disconnect them from the junction box, reconnect the wires to your master and try your stats.
