I've been trying to work through this guide, and have a few queries: -

First, I can't, and never could, access the BT speedtester.
Is this because I'm with TalkTalk??

My Attenuation is 31.0-up, and 53.0 down.
Does that say that the incoming line from the exch. (2.2Km away) needs attention??

My largest whole package is 1372, and the round trip time is 79ms.
What does that indicate??

Using "Tracert" I get a strange response: -

Microsoft(R) Windows DOS

C:\DOCUME~1\GEOFFV~1>Tracert click here

Trace complete.
C:\DOCUME~1\GEOFFV~1>

What does this indicate?
The last time I did it, there was an asterisk in place of a time in the second column of the second "Hop"

Finally, I can't close the DOS window, Iget a message that it may need more time to complete an operation!!
I have to take the "End Now" option.
Is that normal??

This "How to" guide seems to have many loose ends, and isn't very helpfull!
Hope someone can elucidate!
