I switched form Infinity 2 to Infinity 1 approx 1 year ago. I was geting the max avaliable (38 meg down and 8.5 up) with Infinity 1. Last week I was upgraded to the new Infinity 1 and my download speed improved to 44 meg down, which I was getting under Infinity 2.
However, my speed dropped a couple of days ago to 37 down. I checked my modem stats and they seem to imply I am being capped at 38 meg as under the original Infinity 1.

I tried the online chat helpline but with no success (as expected). Am I being capped at 38 meg?
You currently have connection speed of 39mb so not capped at 38mb. Your connection time is only 14 mins was that manual reset or router dropping connection

It was a manual reset. Under the original Infinity 1 my connection stats were very similar, i.e. download showed 39990 with actual speeds of 37-38 meg which I understand is what would be expected as the actual download speed is slighltly less than the indicated download speed, as is the upload speed.

I know what you'll say, that my speeds in within the acceptable range but the point is my line can support a higher speed but is prevented from doing so when I have a very stable connection.
Your sync speed is within the expected range for your line.
But why the discrepancy between the actual data rate and the maximum data rate, especially when the S/N ratio? is a good 6dB.
you just need to reain connected 24/7 and the DLM may with stable connection move your connection speed an bit closer to your attainable speed but as already said you are currently within estimated speeds
Thanks. I'll leave my Home Hub attached (I normally use my own router) an leave it on continuously.
