can you help me understand how the data from my ADSL2 modem (telecom thomson 585v7 - on xtra) makes sense alongside the speedtest results i get. Basically the way i read it, the dsl connection rate is too slow for the speedtest results i'm getting to be possible:
- Uptime: 0 days, 0:38:11
- DSL Type: G.992.5 annex A
- Bandwidth (Up/Down) [kbps/kbps]: 945 / 12.283
- Data Transferred (Sent/Received) [kB/kB]: 0,00 / 0,00
- Output Power (Up/Down) [dBm]: 12,0 / 19,5
- Line Attenuation (Up/Down) [dB]: 13,0 / 24,0
- SN Margin (Up/Down) [dB]: 15,0 / 12,5
- Vendor ID (Local/Remote): TMMB / BDCM
- Loss of Framing (Local/Remote): 0 / 0
- Loss of Signal (Local/Remote): 0 / 0
- Loss of Power (Local/Remote): 0 / 0
- Loss of Link (Remote): 0
- Error Seconds (Local/Remote): 0 / 0
- FEC Errors (Up/Down): 0 / 2
- CRC Errors (Up/Down): 0 / 0
- HEC Errors (Up/Down): 699 / 0
I assume that means its connected at 945 kbps upstream and 12.28 kbps downstream - but I must be wrong as my speedtest today is:
- Ping: 44ms
- Download speed: 10.59Mbps
- Upload speed: 0.77Mbps.
1. can you help me understand the modem's up/down bandwidth figures.
2. I assume the HEC and FEC errors may reflect a sometimes scratchy line... correct? should i be worried?
The context here is we're getting slow-downs and I want to make sure its not our wiring. I'm about to put CAT5e cable in from the master filter to the modem, as currently its old phone cable with a join in it. I want to measure any differences before and after the work. We're in mt eden (Auckland), the attenuation rate suggests 1.7km from the exchange whereas google says its 1.2km to walk, and i'd say less to fly. we're in a hole between cabinets on chorus's SAT map.
Thanks for any help you can offer
