not sure if my router is capping my internet or maybe my isp accidently capped it accidentally ? i have 10mbit package internet from isp but.. on router it shows this:



is this from my router or my modem or cable lines that can't support more speed?

my package is a 10mbit internet package but i am not able to get past 4mbit !

i remember long time ago with my old router i managed to get more speed like with my 8mbit speed of internet

but this is router is kinda new actually i bought it few years ago.. but it was newer then my 2004 or 2005 router i'm pretty sure

my old 2004-2005 router could let me download around 8mbit stable too

also when i am torrenting or download i never manage to get faster then speeds around 4mbit and 440kb at most

but what is puzzling me is my new router is supposed to support 150mbits wirelessly when it advertises on it's box

i am suprised it can't even go past 4mbit.. but i'm not sure if it's the router or my modem or cable lines?

my router is belkin F6-D4630

Approx where do you live?

You have not told use about the wiring in the house and if you have a master splitter installed what ISP you are on and what plan you are on

If I am reading your post correct you are also getting WIFI speed mixed up with ADSL speed

Please also note that wireless transmission at 150Mbps has nothing to do with your modem's sync rate :)

i live in bahrain

i think i'm using my isp's splitter (it splits the telephone line and the router from interfearing with each other right? i think) and i don't know how to define the wiring.. i just plugged it into the wall ? uh it has like a black thingy into some sort of filter thing into the wall and the black one is from the router and so i think
and my plan i am currently a 10mbit one
but i'm capping at 4mbit i can't go more then that

Master splitter not a line filter that plugs into the wall

And when you say Bahrain I take it this is a place in New Zealand?

John, the OP lives in Bahrain, not New Zealand. I have update the post to include the modem stats screenshot to make it easier to others to comment.

normally when someone checks their router status by 192.168.2.1

the data rate kbps display near the noise margin and attenuation (db)

is it exactly as the package or higher or lower depending on signal only ? or just isp controlled? or it may be the router's fault ?

Hi, your modem is syncing at 4.6Mb/s which will result in around the 4Mb/s TCP throughput you are seeing.

4.6Mb/s, 33dB attenuation and a 31dB noise margin suggests that the line has issues, most likely there is either a non filtered device across the line or even more likely a line tap either within your house wiring or depending on the age and design of the street wiring within the telco's street network.

My guess based on where you (middle east) are is both of those.

Once you sort the wiring issues and optimise the line for DSL (rather than just voice) then re evaluate the sync speed and then we can see if there is some further upstream ISP limitation.

You have a 4Mbit ADSL sync speed ? thats the speed your physical phone line can handle. If your ISP cant find any way to improve the phone wiring and if you already split the ADSL from all the voice things in your place by a wired-in splitter (instead of ones that plug into each outlet) then perhaps the wires in the street are just not ideal for ADSL. Its quite a common problem around the world, including here in NZ.
