I was checking my ADSL stats which are as follows:
SNR Margin = 12, Line Attenuation = 53, Date Rate = 4653
SNR Margin = 12, Line Attenuation = 36, Data Rate = 690
I read that ideally downstream SNR should be 30 db and no less than 23 db to avoid packet loss, disconnections etc etc. 50+ db Line Attenuation is supposed to be pretty bad as well.
For the entire time ive had adsl, it's never been higher than maybe 13 but the connection has generally been very good, very rarely have any problems.
Im in Nawton, Hamilton and i believe the closest exchange is Te Rapa. Im not sure exactly where it is or how far i am from it. How is it i have these line stats which should state that im supposed to have a crud connection but things are actually pretty good.
Anyone know how far i am from the exchange? Someone kindly want to analyze my stats?
Modem is the el cheapo D-Link DSL 502T. Would another modem improve the speed synch, SNR, Attenuation etc?
