Wow, what a trip.
Supposed to be activated last thursday (23rd), couldnt connect at all. Foned up over and over, said that level 3 tech would fone me which they didnt do all week. Got very frustrated! Finally got thru to level 3 tech 2nite, he sed it was a "2min fix", sumthing to do with stale card connection, and voila, im on the net straight away! Took 11 days to do a 2min fix GRRRRR.
Well im online now!

Ah ok, i saved my settings, reset the modem using the button on the back, and i had an attenuation of 46db, i then loaded my old settings, and it went back to 15.5db.
Getting about 5.5mb down and 0.6mb up says a speed test. I'm really pleased, thats more than twice my old speeds, plus no throttling of P2P! Super duper!
