      Can I get it faster?

      When I was with talktalk, I would constantly get speeds of 20+ Mbps so i know the line is capable of it.



      This is my latest Sky one.

      Even though it is a good speed, I feel that there is a little more to be had.

      Any suggestions?

      with your current setup thats your max
      i would check your internal wiring
      to rule it out any problems in the house

      wire it up as so in the master socket (the very first socket into the house)
      and re post the stats plz



      Your line lengh is very short you should get 24mbit with ease
      you also look to be on an easynet globespan dslam

      I will do the above test later.

      Rebooted the router to see if that would make a difference but it didn't.

      Thats very poor for an 11.5 db attenuation
      are you sure its the first socket into the house

      trace the wire from outside into the house

      It may be a low quality copper coated line. Have you checked your voice line for noise?

      Do a simple resistance test, bring up your router stats and dial a number, your own would do. Does the noise margin change by much?
