      Insane speed for my line!

      Just wondering what you think of this, it doesnt even drop out atall even with the low snr margin!

      Down Up
      Data Rate(Kbps)
      8956 1076
      Noise margin (dB)
      0.7 7.7
      Output power (dBm)
      12.3 19.4
      Attenuation (dB)
      45.0 26.0

      I'm amazed myself, never used to get over 5500kbps down, but when i plugged directly in the test socket, and download DMT tool, things changed! , i suggest everyone plugs there router in the test socket, youllsee amazing improvements! I still need a ADSL filtered faceplate yet though!

      If you see big improvements in the test socket it means one of two things :-

      (1) The extension wiring is poor, fitting an NTE5 with bell wire filter or a filtered faceplate will cure this.
      (2) The NTE5 socket is faulty (front connection can fail). Cure is same as above.

      If you have a downstream noise margin of 0.7 db, you have over-tweaked it and it will drop out or have so many errors your connection will become almost unusable. Tweak it back up to about 5-6 db.

      If you didn't know that plugging into the Test socket could improve your connection, you have not studied this form very well, that is the single most useful piece of advice given here.
