the difference in estimated and current line speed ?

Estimated line speed: 2.5Mbps - the estimated speed from my local exchange on sign up day
Current line speed: 7.15Mbps - 14 days later and steady as she goes
router on 24/7 since day 1 to up till now
value speed according to online  general speed checker s = 3MB (not bad) so dont worry
router on 24/7 since day 1 to up till now
can a router record and save  these speed settings (ie is a router reboot needed )
As  I'm thinking if I reboot it  , if its intelligent then  it may catch up nearer to my  line speed as it appears today
saying all that the constant  3 MB /sec  that I get is fine

That's ok. Just making sure your PN profile matched your BT one.
Looks like you could benefit from having interleaving turned off......if it's currently on.

I'm happy with  3MB per second  , and whats more its really steady...
I did think the same as you and to turn off any error correction
but earlier I thought I'll leave it on ... for now ... Its so stable

thanks strat and tc
