      Noise Margin 6.7 db 13.7 db

      Attenuation increased from 25 to 32db when using Netgear DG834GT, was previously using Netgear DG834G. No dropouts, wireless works fine, speed is stable.

      Replacing my NTL cable connection on new BT line.

      Registered interest: 25th August
      BAND code sent: 8th September
      Ordered: 8th September
      Router arrived: 19th September
      Activation Due: 20th September
      Activated: 21st September

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 3406 kbps 576 kbps (max service)
      Line Attenuation 62.0 db 41.7 db (ouch!)
      Noise Margin 6.9 db 7.5 db

      No idea how far I am from exchange. Quite a way judging from the Line Attenuation and low downstream speed!

      25/09/06: After reading other posts and advice on this forum, I'm going to buy a faceplate for the master socket so that I don't need microfilters on my three extensions. I believe they're causing the line attentuation. More info once it arrives and has been fitted!

      03/10/06: After fitting a new faceplate, the new figures are:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4238 kbps 615 kbps
      Line Attenuation 61.5 db 40.9 db
      Noise Margin 7.1 db 7.8 db

      So a slight improvement, but not fantastic.

      Order Date 12/09/06 (registered interest 7 days prior)
      New Connection, recently went back to bt after 'Bulldo_ Hell)
      Router Arrived 18/09/06
      Connection Due 22/09/06
      Actually Connected 21/09/06
      Up sync speed 288kbps
      Down sync speed 288kbps

      I presume that my speed will be sorted tomorrow on the actual activation date as I'm expecting 5meg which is what I had prior with a naff company.
