Recently the exchange got upgraded in my area to ADSL2+ !!

Saw some speed increase but was wondering if i should be getting more

Current stats are from a Dlink 504T

SNR Margin          12        12d
BLine Attenuation  26  10dB
Data Rate            10471  868kbps  

DSL Stats from Cellpipe 7130

DSL Firmware Version6.6.0.14 DSL Link StatusUP  DSL TypeADSL2 PLUS  Downstream Line Rate11160 kbps Upstream Line Rate868 kbps Bearer Downstream Payload Rate10231 kbps Bearer Upstream Payload Rate792 kbps Downstream Attainable Payload Rate10228 kbps Downstream Attainable Line Rate11180 kbps Downstream Training Margin12.0 dB Downstream Delay0.1 ms Upstream Delay0.9 ms TX Total Power12.0 dbm FE TX Total Power12.5 dbm

Distance from exchange about 1.6 KM  / 1.2 KM in "theory"  Test running with one jack point connected in whole house with DSL directly across it with my no phones or anything else. Tried 2 different modems the sync about the same  Cellpipe 7130 Dlink 504T Have interleaving turned off ( Have no DSL issues at all ) Any ideas ??

~10Mbit for 26dB attenuation seems about right.

How many phone jacks in your house? What's the house phone wiring like?

Dlink 504T is a waste of time, it won't work at all well with the new Ikanos linecards.

With your sync rate you should be getting around 10Mbps. To improve things it would depend on your distance from the exchange, but your modem and internal wiring would be the two things to look at. Unless you have a professionally installed master DSL filter you will always limit you ADSL2+ performance as plug in filters will never deliver the same level of performance.

ok thanks, yeah had the wiring replaced 2-3 months back so everything is fine ( Chorus came changed it all on a fault )

so everything is fine might install a master splitter not hard to do

Hi a master filter will remove the echos from the line stubs of your house wiring, something a bunch of inline filters cannot achieve, you will need to do this to milk the last top end out of the connection. Personally I would not expect a lot more maybe a meg or two.

Thanks for the reply i don't think its worth spending $$$ on a master filter for only a meg or two :P 

All thought i wish they get rid of the old "045" to my house!

Hi There,

If you would like to be absolutely sure I can run a prequal on your line and tell you the speeds you should expect in ideal conditions to the roadside.
