      My Stats - Any Good?

      Hi Guys,

      I have just moved home and have had Sky Mid activated yesterday.
      Just logged into the router and this is the stats shown:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 8096 kbps 384 kbps
      Line Attenuation 32.0 db 20.0 db
      Noise Margin 12.8 db 13.0 db

      Are these any good? I am a complete novice when it comes to bb speeds etc.

      I also check my speeds on the skyuser speed test and only got 600 download and 308 upload. Are these normal or are they low?

      Thanks for the hlp guys!

      as to the download speeds, are you wireless ?

      Re: My Stats - Any Good?

      Cheers guys,

      Yes i am wireless.
      No other choice at the minute. Only got 1 PC but also run my Xbox for live.
      Hopefully i will get a new phone point in upstairs soon so can go back to wired and improve the download speeds.

      IS it just becasue i am wireless or do i have a problem with my wireless set up?
      I have the netgear stick from sky (54mbps) and it is showing as connecting at 54mbps.
      IS that how it should be?

      Thanks again guys (and i will change the profile now!)

      when you search for your wireless network do you see lots of other networks with the same channel ? if so you could try another as far from the nearest as possible

      Line Att': 15 db / 4 db.
