Re: ADSL2+ poor for me

I doubt it, there are numerous posts here where routers are reporting 0dBm output power on ADSL2+, just not picking up the proper value I guess.

Strictly speaking, it doesn't know what the downstream power used actually is, so I suppose it's honest about the figure! Cheesy

OK, not a lot of people know this.
0dBm is another way of saying 1mW of power.

Hiya,
If you can possibly hold on until Monday I'll get your upstream uncapped.


James did you manage to get the upstream uncapped..

Hiya,
Sorry, I must have been having problems with the website at the time.
I've placed your order now, and it should complete tomorrow.
