Is my download speed limited to 3MB/s?

Hi, so my Asus DSLN66U is now working flawlessly, but I have noticed my download speed caps out at 3 megabytes per second. Since my speed was slightly faster before switching modems I can only assume it is related to my Asus modem.
Has anyone else had this problem?

Can you post any DSL connection details from the ASUS?

Just running a quick line test from here too so we can see if there's anything immediately obvious

Your line is currently connected at 26Mbps, so getting a throughput of around 3MBps (24Mbps ish) would be roughly what I'd expect. However the sync is below where I'd expect your line to be based on the estimates, can you try switching back to the Openreach modem and see if the speed improves again.
Downstream Speed 26.0 Mbps
Upstream Speed 10.3 Mbps
Profile Name 0.128M-80M Downstream, Interleaving Low - 0.128M-19M Upstream, Error Protection Off

OK I've switched back Openreach modem and plusnets router. I won't switch them back until I've heard from you. (My upload speed seems to be halved with this Openreach modem).

Hi Chris, did you run the line test?
