My modem says I connect at 3776Kbps, I only get 131kbps, why

This is a request for other people to log their experience.

My speed tests were getting a mere 131k bps, yet my ADSL modem says that I should be getting up to 3776 Kbps!

Today I get 512k after leaving only the Solwise 715 ADSL router on overnight.

What are others seeing?

I turn my modem on only to use the computer.

Here is some information read off the modem and some spped test results. I have had 1700Kbps!

But my speed tests get:

Your downstream SNR says you should be able to synch at the full 8128 Kbps that MaxDSL is capable of-- mind you, I don't understand why you don't keep your router on all the time, it's not as if it uses much power and if you were to switch it off and on in rapid succession BT's equipment might decide you had problemss and wind your synch rate down!

Your speed test results do seem extremely low, even considering the fact that many speed testers don't give a true picture of your possible download rate

You would do well to run the BT speed test to help determine whether the problem lies with PlusNet's system or closer to home!

sounds like the problem i'm having on llu, synced at 5mb, downloading around 120-150kbps

Off topic maybe, but in these days of high power usage and resource problems we should ALL thurn off ANY electrical equipment we don absolutly need to leave on. Well done DougRice!
Sorry, I'll butt out now!

How can I tell if I'm on LLU or just plain vanilla Max-DSL? Ive got the SMAE problem. Router synchs at 2.5M but downloads are in the 120-130k region on PlusNet, BT, and SPEEDTEST.NET tests. Upload speed is 448k so it CANT be the line, can it?

Essenby..your uplaod speed tells me you are on MaxDSL.
