      Looks like a fob off by someone who didn't know how to do it. Watch your WAN time for resyncs over the next couple of days. If it does not resync, call back and this time ask for someone who can reconfigure your line.

      Likewise, I did ask them specifically to just alter it manually, but no luck, even after he went and spoke to someone else. I'll let DLM run again for a few days and then call again.

      Re: New activation: initial stats and tweaking

      Pleased to report that the supposed 'mini-DLM' has now increased my stats as below:

      14335 / 902
      32.5 / 18.8
      8.8 / 8.0

      I think this is probably the best I'm going to get, unless any bright sparks can suggest otherwise!

      That's not bad, but as you still have a bit of noise margin in hand, you might get a bit more.

      Thanks Isitme, I'll monitor again and see if this 'mini-DLM' ups the speed any more!

      Re: New activation: initial stats and tweaking

      A quick update to this thread; I came off DLM at about 14335 (as above) but when coming off the test socket, putting the faceplate back on and plugging in to that, my sync speed now drops to 11245 so I'm getting someone in to have a look at the internal wiring as a little tricky keeping my router in the cupboard by the master socket permanently!
      Thanks everyone for the assistance so far.

      Can you feedback what you find with the wiring, I'd be interested to know the outcome.

      It is not unusual for internal wiring to interfere with your broadband. Buy fit and use a filtered faceplate and your problems will be over.
