You have a good noise margin, basically as that is reduced your speed goes up so a high figure to start with is good. For a stable connection usually around about 6db area is good. So if your margin was to reduce, you would find that your speeds would increase. From your stats I would say you have a very good line and you should certainly be seeing greater speeds than what you have

Well I think I've been upgraded today looking at these stats,
Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
WAN PPPoA 63775 91405 0 143 2681 13:01:48
LAN 10M/100M 2439 1890 0 17 4 21:45:32
WLAN 11M/54M 155518 117664 0 2236 110 21:45:22
ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 12111 kbps 766 kbps
Line Attenuation 30.0 db 17.2 db
Noise Margin 6.1 db 12.0 db
However, when I do a broadband speed check, my download shows 2mb????
Is this right?
