      you could have a look in the cabling and faceplate forum for tips on how to improve your internal wiring (will involve something called the ring wire, i'm not that good explaining it, there will be much better info in the forum)

      as to you speed, the connection is a little low (not much) and so is the noise margin (again not much) but this would lead me to think you have some noise on your line.

      Thanks again Richone. I'll give it a week or so and see how it goes.

      what do you think is more reliable - the router speed of 4 meg or the online speed tests of 700 k? What am I likely to be getting out of the two?!

      your router is connecting at the higher figure and your download could be due to the training period, how long have you been connected
