      You should see 10-12mb. The higher the noise margin the better for the moment as it means you can get faster speeds.

      Try getting your stats from the TEST socket also. (How to test your ADSL in the Master Socket)

      Re: Day 1 help please

      Thanks Smithy. I am using the main socket which has an “openreach” on it

      after a day, my router stats changed again. now i am getting 8189kbps.

      any idea? was it to do with the DLM?

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 8189 kbps 725 kbps
      Line Attenuation 36 db 19 db
      Noise Margin 15 db 7 db

      Yes, DLM will track the change and keep increasing the speed until the noise margin hits around 7db and the line is stable.

      Does the DLM only look at the download noise margin or both down and up?

      Today the speed didn't get changed, and I can see my upload noise margin has hit 7db.

      DLM trains both up and download. Your upload looks a bit suspect, if you have extensions, try it in the Test socket and take the stats. If it is an Openreach, you should have one.

      Moved it to the main test socket and changed couple of spliters... finally got

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 8189 kbps 796 kbps
      Line Attenuation 36 db 19 db
      Noise Margin 14 db 16 db

      hopefully the DLM will boost some tomorrow.

      That looks a lot better. Can you keep it there or get a filtered faceplate fitted?

      A filtered faceplate isolates all the internal wiring, which is causing interference and reducing your speed. You can't do that with a plug in filter. They are available from many sources, this is just one -
      BT NTE-2005 ADSL Faceplate for NTE5, 6 Way Version

      I think this supplier gives a discount to forum members.
