I'm connected to Orcon via Telecom Wholesale. My DSL line has an attenuation of 43db and the sync rate fluctuates between 3-5Mbps (although I'm in the Viaduct, downtown Auckland).
On my orcon broadband authentication page it says: Operating mode: G.992.1 G.DMT or ANSI T1.413 iss 2
My modem (thomson tg585v7) is reporting G.992.5 (ADSL2+). Would it be possible to get a higher sync rate by forcing the modem to use ADSL1 only (G.992.1)?
I did some googling but couldn't find a way do do it. I'm not afraid to use command line but there's nothing in the CLI manual on this.
