      speeds vs connection

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 13368 kbps 766 kbps
      Line Attenuation 30.5 db 16.9 db
      Noise Margin 7.1 db 12.5 db

      Why with these good looking stats to the speed test suggest a download speed of 1 kb/s on internet frog and pcpitstop and nearly 4 kb/s on bbmax. What is the difference between these and the connection speed above.

      My Stats

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 8420 kbps 766 kbps
      Line Attenuation 35.5 db 19.6 db
      Noise Margin 5.6 db 12.0 db


      My Speed!

      Download Speed: 3299 kbps (412.4 KB/sec transfer rate)
      Upload Speed: 637 kbps (79.6 KB/sec transfer rate)

      Just confused as to why my Download speeds is always influnctuated whereas my upload is bang-on!

      Influnctuated? That's a new one on me.

      With a noise margin at 5.6 you will be suffering a number of transmission errors. Rebooting the router to get back to 6.9 (the default) should improve things.

      A steadier upload speed is due to the technology involved (upstream frequency band is less susceptible to interference - also ADSL2+ will grab more of the available frequency band if needed for upstream)).

      BTW My attenuation is worse than yours at 38.5 but can connect reliably at 12857kbps (haven't rebooted for over 2 weeks). You must have a lot of noise on your line (internal/external).
