How do I increase my IP profile

Hi
Could someone tell me how (and if) I can increase my IP profile speed as I seem to be stuck at 2000kbps and would like it to be faster if possible.
Doing the BT speed test gave this result.
Test1 comprises of Best Effort Test:  -provides background information.
    IP profile for your line is - 2000 kbps
    DSL connection rate: 448 kbps(UP-STREAM)  3712 kbps(DOWN-STREAM)
    Actual IP throughput achieved during the test was - 1755 kbps

I have tried reconnecting the router a few times but it doesn't seem to make a difference to the IP profile speed.

Thanks
Jeff

Re: How do I increase my IP profile

Does your router tell you the speed it is syncing with the exchange? If you aren't sure how to get this info then this page should help.
It would also be worthwhile having a read of James' blog post for the quirks of MaxDSL.

Embarrassed Not enough caffeine yet, missed that sorry. However, sync speeds can change and it would be useful to see whether they are syncing at the same speed consistently.

Re: How do I increase my IP profile

Hi
The router is synching at 3712 as per the BT speed test.
It has been consistently at the speed for a while.
Thanks

Re: How do I increase my IP profile

Just a further note to say I have reset the router a few times and it still has the down speed at 3712.
I never get any disconnections either.
Is there a way to get the IP Profile to 3000 as per Peter's comment?
Thanks
Jeff

Hi Jeff,
BT's line reports suggest that your sync drops to levels lower than that quite frequently (when you're asleep maybe?). The second column of speeds represent the sync speed when the event was recorded.

There only needs to be a brief drop for the profile to readjust.

Re: How do I increase my IP profile

I would try the following; (Warning time and cash most be spent.)
1) Move the router to the BT Master socket.
2) Replace all MicroFilter's with high quality ones. Or a filter face plate on the master socket.
3) Google "ring wire removal" this is a mircual cure that can give a few extra dB's on the Signal Noise ratio. And hence more Mb's.

My router has been synching consistently at 7616 for months now but my IP profile is at 6500.

Dev,
That IP profile is about right for your sync speed.
