so i played with the dsl modulation settings to check connect differences and i got the following

all things being equal it would seen the G.Lite dsl modulation is the best option...
i thought g.lite syncd at lower speeds, how is it syncing at such high rates and why the better ul speed as well?



*the speedtest results are for comparison only, if the dl speed seems slow it just the time of night and compass, sometimes if i cross my fingers it gets up to 8Mbps, when my 12 month plan ends ill swap to a provider whose speeds match my connection speeds, and then ill be able to use skype properly...

Hello... Our robot found some keywords in your post, so here is an automated reply with some important things to

 

 

note regarding broadband speeds.

 



 

If you are posting regarding DSL speeds please check that

 



 

- you have reset your modem and router

 


 

- your PC (or other PCs in your LAN) is not downloading large files when you are testing

 

- you are not being throttled by your ISP due to going over the monthly cap

 


 

- your tests are always done on an ethernet connection to the router - do not use wireless for testing

 


 

- you read this topic and follow the instructions

 

 

there.

 



 

Make sure you provide information for other users to help you. If you have not already done it, please EDIT your

 

 

post and add this now:

 



 

- Your ISP and plan

 


 

- Type of connection (ADSL, ADSL2, VDSL)

 


 

- Your modem DSL stats (do not worry about posting Speedtest, we need sync rate, attenuation and noise margin)

 


 

- Your general location (or street)

 


 

- If you are rural or urban

 


 

- If you know your connection is to an exchange, cabinet or conklin

 


 

- If your connection is to a ULL or wholesale service

 


 

- If you have done an isolation test as per the link above

 



 

Most of the problems with speed are likely to be related to internal wiring issued.  

 

href="/forums.asp?forumid=49&topicid=96226">Read this discussion
to find out more about this. Your ISP is not

 

 

intentionally slowing you down today (unless you are on a managed plan). Also if this is the school holidays it's

 

 

likely you will notice slower than usual speed due to more users online.

 



 

A master splitter is required for VDSL2 and in most cases will improve speeds on DSL connections. Regular

 

 

disconnections can be a monitored alarm or a set top box trying to connect. If there's an alarm connected to your

 

 

line even if you don't have an alarm contract it may sill try to connect so it's worth checking.

 



 

I recommend you read these two blog posts:

 



 

- Is your premises phone wiring impacting your broadband performance?

 

 

(very technical)

 


 

- Are you receiving a substandard ULL ADSL2+ connection from your ISP?

The increased upstream data rate on that mode will be due to Annex M. In general there is slightly more bandwidth allocated to upstream than to downstream data.
As for such high rates for G.Lite, your modem may in fact be negotiating multi-mode because a G.Lite mode may not be available at the DSLAM.
Just because you have set G.Lite doesn't necessarily mean your connection is operating that mode.

I'm guessing you are on a retail plan within CallPlus or Compass MSAN coverage area.
