      Speeds Normal?

      Hi

      wondering these are reasonable speeds? im on the 20meg unlimited package, i used to get around 15meg last year, speeds dropped since then. On main line, no extensions, should i test on master socket as well?

      You should be getting much better speeds than that, some where around 17mb. Although judging on your Noise Margin you can't improve your speed because it would become to unstable, so technically you can't improve your speed unless you can improve your Noise Margin.

      Take the stats from the test socket, as you suggested.

      Man, I'm on a whole new level of procrastination when I'm on here when I have an EU law exam in 8 hours ha!

      Cheers - gonna need it, ha!

      Anyhoo, as stated already, and for the fact you used to sync higher, I'd expect to push out more speed with the attenuation you have. You'll probably find it is to do with internal wiring, so always good to confirm via the test socket if this is the case.

      Re: Speeds Normal?

      Your line probably runs past some noisy equipment if those are test socket stats. That's the max you can expect to get, if you want to maintain the 14.2mb then you need to get an fit a filtered faceplate such as ADSLNations XTE-2005 onto your master socket and then run your router from that.

      Re: Speeds Normal?

      Looking back at this thread, lucky I bloody passed that exam ha!

      I take it those stats from the test socket were as follows:

      test socket > microfilter > router

      ... using the short grey dsl cable sky supplied? Try swapping over for another filter if you have one handy and re-take the stats. If no change, then it may be a line quality issue - do you have any noise on the landline?
