RFI there isnt the prettest, but you now have a very nice line..

i suspect something has been fixed.


chances are you might get to a 17a profile too looking at your line, see how it goes..

17a is a faster line profile, thats given to thoses with short lines.

on an 8b profile (which your currently on) the max anyone tends to reach is about 45~55/10 where as 17a is able to go up to 60~70/10.


put simply, you have a chance of getting a decent speed boost at some point.

your holding a DLM-1 DLM profile currently, ild suggest keeping you modem reboots to a minimum to keep that.

Jase2985: im wondering if you were still on the ADSL profile


not likely, normally when people talk of being on an ADSL capped profile, they will still sync at decent speeds but throughput will be limited.

hio77:

i always understood the filter simply only let the voice portion of the spectrum through? 


Yep, it will attenuate the high frequency signals very significantly, but on a short line you may still get a [very poor] sync.

I wonder if there's a loose wire on the back of the DSL jack causing an intermittent connection?
