      just did a quick re-boot myself (noticed i was lower than normal)

      Down Up
      SNR (dB): 10.7 13.0
      Attn(dB): 40.0 27.0
      Pwr(dBm): 19.7 0.8
      Max(Kbps): 8672 1184
      Rate (Kbps): 7168 416
      7168 is my max (capped at this which is fine for me), but figure above does change depending on time of day

      have a look at second link in my sig which explains the stats much better than i seem to be able today

      Re: Sky Max

      Hi,

      I've connected to the test bit on my master switch and the figures are slightly better. My statistics are below. If I want to give ADSL 2 a go do I need to contact Sky helpdesk and ask for them to change the mode?

      Thanks,

      Re: Sky Max

      ^^^ Yes, your SNR is much higher in the master socket and you are now getting the max 8096 that G.DMT can provide. Potentially you could get up to 14500 on ADSL2 depending on your line.

      You need to contact Sky (I would use the online form rather than the phone) and tell them you have cured a wiring fault and can you now try ADSL2.

      The fault on your extension could well be the ring wire. Look for an orange and white wire running from terminal 3 on the master socket and disconnect it. You do not need it and it is renowned for causing interference to ADSL.

      Re: Sky Max

      Once you have contacted sky and if they do put you on ADSL2+, keep an eye on your line for a day or so, if you start dropping connection or slowing down , before phoning sky back remember you can use mognuts utility to put yourself back on gdmt if needed (that way if connection becomes crap, you can pop yourself back onto gdmt until the new firmware comes out which should help the router cope with the line noise, you can then pop yourself back onto ADSL2+ without having to go back to sky)



      (i think above makes sense)

      Re: Sky Max

      Hi,

      first thanks for all the advice. Secondly I have pulled out the orange and white wire in terminal 3 and now get better stats on the extension port. Now waiting on Sky to switch me over. I will let you know how it turns out.

      Thanks,

      James
