      Well i pulled the blue wire out of pin 3 and it disconnected the internet, not sure if i had a dial tone as i didnt check. Ok i will look in to getting one.

      Im with Orange but i have spoke to them and they said i should be getting about 2mb. I did a number of tests and all that but ive got to ring them back in 2 days if my speed doesnt improve.

      Sorry, I did not notice you were with Orange,, obviously phoning Sky will do no good.

      If they can only give you 2 Mb with an attenuation of 33db, its time you moved on. That is very poor, even with ADSL1.
