      regarding SNR - not really, as you're on the border of getting 8Mbps...a cap to 7Mbps (for example) would keep thing nice and stable and probably speed things up in the long run...

      regarding speed tests - are you wireless? if so, try wired - and try HERE (download the large file and a rate of 700-800KB/sec is normal)...

      Yes, my laptop is connected to my router wirelessly...downloading that large file from bt didn't take very long at all, and peaked at about 865kbps, which I assume isn't too shabby...

      Unless you have hardwired extensions into the Master socket a filtered faceplate is unlikely to improve your connection. You are already on the maximum speed for for Mid, so what you are looking for is more stability. Your stats show that your connection has retrained, due probably to the errors in the last 15 min segment shown which accounts for almost 50% of your total errors. You can check this quite easily by plugging into the TEST socket and take your stats from there. Your speed will not rise, but if you get an appreciable rise in the noise margin, then fitting a filtered plate would be an advantage. Apart from the stability side, a filtered faceplate does look a lot better than the dangly things.

      As has already been mentioned you will not get a very fast speed test using wireless, unless it is draft 'N' which should give almost ethernet speed. Do your speed tests using ethernet and when you have established your stable speed, you can then start to try improving your wireless speed.

      Thanks IsItMe - I'll plug into the test socket asap and see how my stats look then. As you say, I am getting a pretty good speed from the Mid package capability, so extra stability, and getting rid of those pesky dangly filters would be my main objectives when fitting any faceplate.

      On the faceplate front, does it have to be one from adsl nation, or are they all much of a muchness.....seen other adsl faceplates available for about 6 ish, rather than the 12 + postage from adsl nation...

      You can buy these for Under a fiver but to be honest I have never used anything but the ADSLNation one, for my own and others I have fitted for friends. Remember the old adage, 'you get what you pay for' so I would hesitate to recommend anything cheaper. The ones supplied by Run it Direct and Clarity also have a good name, but I have never personally used them.
