      ^^
      You look good for 18-20Mb. If you don't get that, open a thread in the Help section.

      DLM will normally kick in up to 72 hours after your connection went live. Don't reset the router or it may think there is a problem on the line.

      You will get a good bit more yet easily 18 Mb and possibly the full 20 Mb. Keep your router plugged in and powered up and DLM will do its thing

      Hi, can you explain how you got the figure of 18mb by looking at the test results, as i haven't got a clue what they mean

      Thanks

      By looking at the combination of your present speed, the attenuation and your noise margin.

      Re: Activated now then please post info here

      Hi Im back, Line testing is now finished...it actually finished on the 22/03/2011 which is a bit strange becuase it was only activated on the 16th shouldn't it last for 10 days? Any way its says my line connection has been set to 11mb I thought it was going to be much faster than that. Is there anything I could do?

      Thanks
