Well your sync rate up and down seems okay. SNR seems within limits and the attenuation puts you fairly close to the cabinet / exchange.

I'd give Orcon a call and get them to look at it, with those metrics out of your modem you have a very high attainble throughpout, however due to other factors i.e. congestion on your DSLAM (local kit that you and other DSL users in your area connect to) you are certainly not getting reasonable throughput.

There's nothing else using your connection? Best way to check is check your usgae from Orcon and see if it's suddenly jumped, there might be something esle using your bandwidth you dont know about or if you have something that can show all the traffic in/out of your machine ... ?

First stop should definetly be the Orcon helpdesk.

You could evict him? lol most broadband routers don't traffic limiting per IP address, not in the lower price range anyways. Generally its things like proxy servers or firewalls that can do this sort of thing.

Are you running the speed tests on your wireless or via a cable?

Try running the test early in the morning (to auckland) and se eif you get faster speeds.. (Say around 8am)
