      SNR & Attenuation

      SNR & Attenuation

      To those who know more than me am I right in thinking the following.....

      Attenuation:

      The lower the reading the better the quality of the signal is between the DSLAM and the modem.

      But..........

      SNR:

      With SNR its the other way round, the lower it is 6db or less is poor and the higher is better.

      So, how can the quality be good and the SNR be poor?

      In my case:

      SNR: 6.6db
      Ant: 29db

      So how can I have a quality signal between the exchange and my modem but the noise is poor. In my mind should the quality (attenuation) be poor as well because I have a poor SNR?

      And is the SNR DSLAM controlled?
