Hi Guys,

I think I am now connected on an up to 8Mb connection. The following info is from the router, can anyone please tell me if these figures are good or bad, and which of the numbers I should be keeping an eye on.
Thanks in advance.

"Downstream Rate 7616 Kbps"

That's a very good figure for an ADSL line.

"Downstream Margin 3 db"

You need to keep an eye on this figure. Ideally it should be 6 or above to maintain a connection. You may find that if this goes any lower you may lose sync and your connection will drop and possibly resync at a lower line rate.

Following the advice click here you could optimize your internal phone wiring and possibly increase your noise margin.

As I indicated in my first post this connection has happened in the last day or so. I have just done a speed test and it is at 1.3Mb. I assume that this is because the system is in "learning mode"? Or does anyone think it should be better?

Sometimes your speed can be restricted to no more than 2Meg for the first 3 days of the connection.
