Hi, yes 922.5 is ADSL2+, at 2km to get 10Mb/s is about on the money, obviously at if you ensure you have clean house wiring (central filter as opposed to lots of inline filters) you will ensure you get the most out of the connection. Once you get this far out you need to make optimal line conditions to get max speeds.

I was playing around with the settings and not sure what I did but not getting same speeds as before on speedtest, it?s not going over 15Mb whereas earlier it was going up to 18.5MB. I am talking about the ADSL modulation, there are quite a few to choose from like G.Dmt, ADSl, ADSL2, ADSL2+, Annex M etc. it?s a Dynalink modem, can anyone confirm which ones should be ticked and which ones shouldn?t be

Hi, check them all, although Annex M is not used here so leave that off.

What filters are you using are you using lots of inline filters as opposed to a central filter (you may have stated this detail earlier cannot remember) but speed can often vary when a non central filter setup is used.

yeah I'm using one inline filter, only have two active jacks in the house, one has cordless with a filter and the other has the adsl modem,I believe you can plug the adsl modem straight into the jack, right? Filter only required if phone connected on the same line, though I have tried both, with a filter and without the filter. Would like to get a central splitter but telecom charging too much

I think I found the problem regarding \variation of speeds on my connection, something to do with the wireless router. At the moment I've got a Dynalink ADSL modem connected to a netgear DG834G in router only mode. I get around 19MB but after sometime it drops to 12-13MB but if I connect my laptop to the Dynalink with ethernet cable, it still gives me 19MB. I restarted the netgear and now it's back at 19MB, not sure if I am making sense. Basically, speed on wireless is not consistent,goes back up after a restart of the wireless router.

Tested this morning - came to about 12MB
 Tested after the restart of Netgear only, and got 19.19 down and .7 up

Dynalink do wireless ADSL 2+ routers, have you looked into one of those? I've had an RTA1025W for a few years now and it's gone well (looking at upgrading to one that supports wireless n soon however).

You would be better off leaving the Dynalink to do all modem/router functions and just use the Netgear as a Wireless AP using one of its LAN ports rather than the WAN port, also turn its DHCP server off only use the Dynalink for that.

I think that's what I've done,just went into Dynalink configuration and turned off DHCP server and connected Dyanlink to one of Netgear's port?? Please advice if there is a better option, I am happy to give it a try.  Also, I'm not able to access my Netgear configuration page anymore??

Hi, normally I would leave the DHCP on in the Dynalink as its also the NAT router, some NAT routers get confused if they dont rule the roost, but probably not a biggie, obviously then turn it off in the Netgear, only one in a network.

Ensure you dont use the WAN port of the Netgear, just one of its LAN ports, there should be nothing connected to the Netgear WAN port.

My netgear doesn't have a WAN wort, only 4 LAN ports and dynalink is connected to one of them. Also, do you know why can't I access the netgear configuration?

Doh, just realised its a DG834 which is a DSLmodem/router, so you should have it right, to access the DG834 you need to use 192.168.0.1, from your web browser.

What address has you PC been assigned.

unlocker:
Finally I am on ADSL2+, got everything sorted. 
Speedtest
Best speed I got was with Dynalink RT1320, tried atleast 6 different brands and models   


Can I ask how you got them to change you to ADSL2+? 
My modem connects to the exchange at ADSL speeds even though our exchange has had ADSL2+ for 1+ years.
I spoke to Telecom and they told me that since I'm connecting on ADSL2+ on my modem, it means my ADSL2+ is already enabled.

What modem are you using? You need to tell them to check your profile but before that make sure your modem is capable of adsl2+. Your modem should sync at adsl2+ speeds if your cabinet has been upgraded.
