Hi guys, I`m totally hopeless at these networking issues. Been with Telecom Xtra for 2 years, but have no use for the phone line apart from the internet, so I`m planning to go naked DSL.
At the moment, my router`s ADSL status is saying this:
Annex Mode ANNEX_A
Max Tx Power -38 dBm/Hz
Item Downstream Upstream Unit
SNR Margin 25 37 dB
Line Attenuation 14 7 dB
Data Rate 7547 165 kbps
Does this mean I have an ADSL 2+ connection? My modem is a D-LINK DSL-502T/TX supplied by Telecom.
And the data rate, what does it mean? Is that the maximum my line allows? I hear people mention much higher values than that so I`m not sure what gives. Because theoretically I`m on a FS down and 128kbps up plan. So if I go FS both ways, what kind of speeds can I expect? I`m in Auckland Central, on the top of Queen Street.
Thanks for any input.
