A couple of Max Oddities....

First of I apologise for adding to the ever burgoeing number of maxDSL threads however I thought you lot might be able to shed some light on this.

Yesterday my Aunt connected to her broadband for the first time. Whe she had finished doing what she wanted I looked up her connection speed.

Downstream she was synching at just under 2mb.

Upstream she was synching at 5 hundred and something (not sure of the exact figure) kbps.

Now the odd things I noticed where that downstream SNR was 12db - but max synchs to 6db.

And the upstream synch was higher than 448k which is the supposed maximum for a home connection.

She's using a DG834 modem / router. Any ideas?

Any chance she's on an LLU connection? That has a higher upstream rate than Max.

Try doing a BT speed check:

If you can't then it's most likely an LLU connection.
