      Upgraded From MID to MAX.. Any Change?

      Hi Guys,

      I have been connected with sky a couple of weeks now and first opted for the mid broadband package which would only sync at about 1800K Down and 300K UP

      So after reading this forum I went online and upgraded to MAX and moved my modem into the Test Socket.

      This increased the router stats to the following:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 3744 kbps 768 kbps
      Line Attenuation 54 db 15.5 db
      Noise Margin 7 db 7 db

      However Im unsure if these stats have just increased because of upgrading to MAX or if they increased because i moved the router into the Test Socket and the upgrade has not been proceed yet...

      But as the upstream is now @ 768 I assume it has upgraded to MAX? Unless MID/MAX both have the same upload speed?

      Im running from the main socket and below is also my exchange information:
      Samknows Broadband - Sherwood (EMSHRWO) Exchange

      Im also connected via ethernet and I have the netgear V2 router (little black one)

      Any guide in the right direction would be much appreciated.

      you're on Max - the upstream shows this - and speed for attenuation is about right also...if you get less out of your test socket you've got wiring issues...

      Attenuation is in reality your line length - The only way to get it better would be to move nearer the exchange, if you have already tried the test socket behind the master socket.

      And moving is not cheap
