      Review: Belkin RJ11 cable

      Bought one of these from eBay for 2 delivered (15 in PC World) to see if it made a difference.

      Code:
                 Before       After
      Downstream
      Sync         2112        2112  
      Max Rate     2164        2312
      SNR           6.4         7.3
      
      Upstream
      Sync          372         422
      Maxc Rate     440         520
      SNR            12          10
      Summary

      It's built like the proverbial out house. The plugs look exactly like a Cat5 patch cable and they stick out a good 3cm - something to bear in mind if you normally have something pushed right up to the master socket.

      2.1m is the shortest length avaialble.

      For 2, the slight improvement is worth it IMO.

      YMMV.

      I may be an old cynic, but I suspect the improvement was as a result of rebooting your router.

      I'm /am/ an old cynic which is why I rebooted the router _then_ took the before data

      Did the attenuation change?

      They're a complete waste of money if you ask me, I bought two different lengths and it made absolutely no difference of the standard grey Sky cable.

      However, if you wish to upgrade then I would recommend this ADSL Nation LTD.

      No. Still 68dB.
