stats changed now i have router not sure if good or bad?

I cnahged my my bt modem for a lylksys router and have just noticed a change in my line stats. I'm not sure if the change is good or bad. My connection appears to display faster inmages etc.

At the minute I have 2mb no sync problems.

Current line speeds

Downstream Margin: 18 db (snr?)
Upstream Margin: 30 db
Downstream Line Attenuation: 44
Upstream Line Attenuation: 23


previous snr downstream margin 23
previous downstream atten 39

My exchange has maxdsl testing which I may move to when it rolls out are these line test results better or worse than before the router.

looks like your downstream margin has "supposedly" worsened - 23dB previously to 18dB on the new router

I wouldn't really worry about it. Different routers/modems report different values, and your downstream margin often varies depending on the time of day, when lights start coming on etc..

I'm not sure but with those stats you will be loooking at about 5Mbit when maxDSL is switched on, assuming a target SNR of about 10dB, who knows.. probably more if they run the SNR lower

previous stats with my modem connected suggested as maxdsl of 7 or 8mbps if i do change i'll try connecting via the modem only until the line settles then change back to the router.

As the man said, how do you know the figures from either device are correct?
I'd not worry overmuch about it.
