      What is a "good" connection ?

      Hi
      Trying to resolve some dropouts and realised don't know what constitutes a "good" line...

      Curerntly I have;

      ADSL Link Downstream / Upstream
      Connection Speed 3776 kbps / 416 kbps
      Line Attenuation 55.0 db / 31.5 db
      Noise Margin 8.6 db / 13.0 db

      Is this good or bad ??

      Cheers

      Firstly what you need to do is get your detailed stats using this utility

      Sky Netgear DG834GT utility version 0.4

      Hit get deatiled modem stats - then hit back in the browser - then hit download.

      It will download a .cfg file, just open this file in a text editor such as wordpad and save it as a txt file.

      Then locate your master socket in your house, if it is a split fronted master socket remove the lower half and connect your router up to it and get the same detailed stats from there.

      This will tell you if your internal wiring is to blame.

      For your line attenuation the potential speed you can achieve is 4500kbps. But in terms of good connection, the detailed stats will help us see that.
