I was wondering if I could get some help on whether or not my connection rates are normal. I've read done the isolation test.
I'm in the Gate Pa, Tauranga area
I'm on Xnet FS down 256k up
PC running Windows XP Pro
Modem is Linksys AM300 (Updated firmware to latest even though it was already up to date. Also its only about 4-5 months old.)
Are my stats normal? If not what should I be getting? (I've seen various threads with people stating they get anywhere from 3000-16500kbps Downstream rates.)
Downstream Rate: 991 Kbps
Upstream Rate: 165 Kbps
Downstream Margin: 12 db
Upstream Margin: -24 db
Connected straight to another phone jack. (10pm)
Same as above but 8am
Speed tests around 10PM 3rd December
Just a couple more questions.
My Upstream Margin flicks from 25ish and -25ish, is this normal?
I have several ADSL cables (To connect the modem to the Jack/filter) one of them is crossover and the other is straightthrough or are these a different kind of cable that don't have such things as crossover etc.?
Is there anything I can do to increase my modems connecting speed? (From power on to Internet ready.) I've manually set DNS servers in hopes of achieving this but it didn't do anything. It can take anywhere from 2-10 minutes to connect.
Will local exchanges show up on Google maps/earth? If not how do I find out how far away I am from the nearest one?
