Upstream attenuation differences

I've been using a Netgear DG834v2 for just over 12 months and the figures which it has reported have been pretty consistent, particularly downstream(37dB) and upstream(10.5dB) attenuation. A few days ago I decided to test a BT Voyager 210 and the figures I've been getting from that have been more or less the same as with the Netgear except the upstream attenuation which is being reported as 21dB. Interestingly, it's exactly double the figure which the Netgear reports. There don't appear to be any performance issues so I'm just curious about the big difference in the upstream attenuation figures - ideas anyone?

Upstream attenuation differences

I have seen that on several netgear routers when compared to other makes. If you look at the figures via telnet it shows the doubled (and I believe correct) figure.

For some reason it is halved when shown on the web interface. Just another quirk of the netgear firmware.

That explains it, thanks.
