      New to Sky Broadband

      Hey to you all!

      I just need some advice to optimise my broadband, OKay I will admit I use an extension cable because my computer is upstairs but I am connecting at 10.3mbs/16mbs but this is fine for me.

      Here are my stats below

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 10306 kbps 764 kbps
      Line Attenuation 34.5 db 18.8 db
      Noise Margin 5.8 db 11.5 db

      Do you think that this could be improved? Does this look healthy.

      Thanks for any input.

      hi Kpax,


      if you have a look a few posts down and find a reply from IAmNotTheEnemy, he has a link in his sig to get the full stats which will help

      also most people will advise it would be better to have router on master socket and use long ethernet cable to PC

      Extensions cause alot of noise and will also get worse over time

      lol, here i am!!

      definately get rid of the extenton first and, if need be, temporarily move PC downstairs as you might find sync speed increases - or at least stay stable

      also, posting full stats help show any issues so see links on my sig for how to do this....

      as for question in other thread, richone, add the link to the page u wanna sticky in the bottom of ur sig using the 'insert link' button in ur control panel...
