      How Do I know If DLM Is Running On My Line?

      The tell tell signs of DLM is the 412/794* upload stream rates, your speed may vary throughout the day.
      I thought it was sub 400 if you were on Base or Mid? And 448 for Connect?

      Mine is 412 and I am on ADSL2+. Previously it was 416 on G.DMT. I think while it is running DLM will set the speeds lower for base and mid and higher for Max

      Mode: ADSL2+
      Channel: Fast
      Trellis: U:ON /D:ON
      Line Status: No Defect
      Training Status: Showtime
      Down Up
      SNR (dB): 8.3 22.5
      Attn(dB): 39.5 22.7
      Pwr(dBm): 22.5 8.5
      Max(Kbps): 11364 516
      Rate (Kbps): 8186 412

      Re: I'm not getting the speeds I expect.

      uploads are as follows...

      Connect - 448kbps
      Base/Mid - started off 416kbps, then went to 384kbps, now back to 416kbps
      Max - 768kbps

      adsl2+ drops off a kb or 2, hence why you'll see 412kbps and 764kbps...

      IF you're showing 796/800kbps, then you've either been on DLM as a new connection or your connection has been added to the DLM script and it changes them speeds...same again if you've always had 416kbps and it's now changed to 412kbps...
