these are my current line stats as i got a draytek router/modem today so can now view them
what you guys make of the line? bit more room for speed? maxed out? i know i can get at least another 1mb as ip profile on line dropped a meg when switching router over this afternoon
Hi what is the estimated length of your line to the cabinet?. You are loosing 1 of the 3 downstream bands and have very low SNR Margins on the two you have got 3.8 and 4.0 dB. That can be due to attenuation due to length or aluminium cable or poor joints. Not much you can do about the first but potentially the others are fixable if you make enough fuss.
You are also showing a high level of errors which probably means it is pointless trying to squeeze more speed at the moment as the error level will make the connection a pain to use. Interestingly the HG612 might give you a marginally better connection as its firmware was written for UK lines and seems better in marginal situations than the Draytek.
For comparison my stats on a 300m line

i think i am about 700 yeards from my green cab, Bt put me on a better pair at the top of my pole outside my house and fed a new line into the house straight into the back of the mastersocket.
i cant remember exactly but i think on my old mine i had 80db and the new one is about 53db (or the other way around i cant remember which was better)
i was predicted on the bt site 44.2 down 8mb up. however since switching to infinity2 never noticed any difference. get about 30-32 down and 5mb up.
if you could also point out which colums are the useful ones to looks at and their meaning it be great.. nothing in the dreytek manual on online pdf to help ...
