BackNBlack: no my computer is about 4-5 meters away from the wall jack. and the wall jack is about 3 meters away from the ps3. computer and ps3 is 8 meters away. so i have to move all the internet cords ethernet plug adsl cord and power cord from the computer all the way to the ps3 but i re plug in the adsl filter because the cord can be reached to the ps3. i have about 20 meter extention to the computer so the wall jack cord can reach the computer. its a bit confusing

Wow... an extension cord can SERIOUSLY degrade your connection quality.

BackNBlack: "It seems the 302G has the SNR ("Noise Margin") in the USB software, not sure about the web interface"

wats the USB software??? wat do u mean by that

Um... do you know your router well?

The DSL-302G allows one computer to be connected via USB and Ethernet.

I can see by screenshots of the software that the SNR is stated under the 'ADSL' tab, but I'm not sure about where you could get that via the web (browser) interface.

Yeah, it sure sounds like it.  Why don't you buy an Ethernet Switch for around $50, and then you could have everything on-line together?

Better still, ditch your D-Link 302 and buy a decent router with built-in 4-port Ethernet Switch (cost around $140).  Then you can use your PC and PS3 on-line at the same time without needing to change any cables around Cool

I think any length of extension cord can degrade your connection.

It's best to get your computer and modem/router as close to the phone jack as possible.

I would recommend you share your connection to the PlayStation 3 using a router / switch. It's faster, more efficient and reliable (Cat5 cables can carry a signal for around 80m)

So I would seriously think about your setup right now.

If the cord is degrading my connection then why do i get the same speeds on my computer and ps3 when doing a speed test, when the ps3 set up is using no extension cords?

Sorry i still dont no where to look for the noise margin and SNR figures

Apparently the "Noise Margin" is available under the WAN menu item in the web interface.

I had an extension cord to my router before, and since moving it directly to the jack, I got an speed improvement of about 0.5 mbps, so I wouldn't be exactly surprised, but there will be a increase in reliablility no doubt.

Again, I would re-consider your setup.

There are other ways you could connect your computer to broadband better, like geting a router (or for easy-ness getting an ADSL broadband router) and connect ethernet cables. Far more reliable than just phone cables.

That's why I said to re-consider your setup - you've got many ways to solve connection problems and/or enhance your broadband connection.

Say what?

Unless you've got a networking system already in your house, it doesn't work that way.

It's more like this:

Phone Jack -> ADSL Broadband Router -> Ethernet cable -> Computer
                                                       -> Ethernet cable -> PS3
                                                       -> Ethernet cable -> anything else...

Common routers usually comes with 4 ports, which should meet most home requirements.

Obviously NOT Yell  You need to:

1)  Move your router right up close to the wall socket with the shortest possible cable
2)  Buy a longer Ethernet cable from your router to your PC (around $10 or so)

Understood?

is it normal for your downstream to go from 23.0 db to 22.0dB and your upstream to jump from 42.0dB to 43.0db?
