Hang on I was getting those speeds with regular ADSL. Not at the moment though..

geek_gibler, Sep 28, 5:51 pm

I didn't think any WGTN exchanges had ADSL2+ yet?

geek_2gd4ubb, Sep 28, 5:54 pm

geek_wholesaler, Sep 28, 5:56 pm

Not the fastest. my old adsl d-link 500 at the shop gets better than that, and thats adsl old

geek_swivel, Sep 28, 5:59 pm

Just plain adsl here and I get better speeds than that...nothing to brag about lol :(

geek_pixma, Sep 28, 6:11 pm

I dream of speeds like that on old adsl but with 55DB line attenuation Im lucky to get 600kbps down. And thats on a pro plan

Can someone explain what the ping means please?

geek_nik12, Sep 28, 6:30 pm

Basically it's just used to confirm you can connect to a website or ip address.. the ping time is how long it takes between when data is sent from the server and when you receive it.

geek_2gd4ubb, Sep 28, 6:32 pm

Your modem should tell you what it means. If not, have a read: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ping

geek_wholesaler, Sep 29, 6:39 pm

geek_ruderger, Sep 29, 6:45 pm

where is your nearest exchange? ...

geek_gibler, Sep 29, 6:45 pm

Not sure, havn't actually checked

geek_wholesaler, Sep 29, 6:49 pm

Noise Margin 12.4 dB
Line Attenuation 39.5 dB
Output Power 19.5 dBm

My noise there, unsure of distance

geek_wholesaler, Sep 29, 6:50 pm

My max is 1708 kB/sec (yes kB not kb) using Knoppix to d/l flashplayer on telecom wif regular adsl

geek_sirfer, Sep 30, 7:01 am

I was being sarcastic I'm afraid, my router connects at a nice 18397 / 777 with a line attenuation of [11.0/4.4] and noise margin of [12.0/12.3] this is close to the promised 24MBit/s down and 1Mbit/s up. I never seem to get anywhere near those speeds (Xnet Fusion).
