NZCrusader: By the way OP, you wont get 50 Mbps+ on the VB104W.
It doesnt sync very well compared to other vendors.
The reliability of the device is dodgy and the wireless fluctuates badly, especially when several devices are using it. So make sure it is in an easy place to power cycle (aka pull the power cord and replug it).
Also remember to disable the logging as it doesnt clear and locks the device up.
Concerning the line state ...for example I am ~130m away.
Tech estimated my line at least 50 Mbps but should be able to get onto 17a at 60Mbps+. Hasnt happened.
My attn says 0.1 (is actually about 2.5db) and I only get 45 Mbps sync.
I have a clean line and new cat6 cabling to the ETP where the filter is.
If you have the cash, splash out on an Asus DSL N66U. (Not to be confused with the RT version)
Jase2985: im wondering is something hasnt been done on slingshots end.
or your modem is misreporting your attentation and its actually higher than 2.5 (which FYI is pretty damn low for 175m away)
Jase2985: 2.5dB on a perfect line
are you able to telnet into the modem?
