I've been trying to resolve my lousy synch speed (data rate) for a long time and I cannot seem to come to any better situation.
I am on the GDW2 (Glendowie) exchange about 2 km away (according to Telecom). I am on the Xtra Pro Advanced Usage plan (FS/FS). I have a 3Com Wireless 11g OfficeConnect Modem/Router [3CRWDR100A-72] with the latest available firmware [2.06T13 (Apr 25 2007 17:06:30)].
[BTW, anyone know for sure where the GDW2 exchange is?]
I have moved my modem all over the apartment to see if I can locate the first outlet, with everything else unplugged, but there is no significant difference in speed. All my other appliances are filtered.
Here are my current stats:
Data Rate - 914 Kbps
Noise Margin - 11 dB
Attenuation - 27 dB
Data Rate - 1008 Kbps
Noise Margin - 12 dB
Attenuation - 26 dB
Clearly I should be getting more speed than this!
Is it the modem?
Does anybody have any experience switching FROM a 3Com to something else?
Any advice would be most welcome!
