[Speed Problem] Speed in Encinitas

Hello,

I am in Encinitas and I did a ATT Speed check and I get 1.28 down and 0.31 up. What results does anybody else in the area get?
Do you think it would be any better with the Elite package?

Thanks...

It depends on the maximum speed your modem is capable of syncing at.

You need to post your modem stats to estimate what the modem's maximum sync speed is.

Thanks for the reply. I have a SpeedStream 5100. Would I get the modem stats instructions from the Tools page?

Two things:

Is that a 5100b with five LEDs or a 5100a with four LEDs?

To access the modem stats easily,
(a) your computer or your router must not be making the PPPoE connection or
(b) if your router is making it, there are some more complicated methods of getting to the modem.

If (a), this link would get the stats with a 5100b: »192.168.0.1/statistics.htm

According to your modem, you are set at: Rx Tx
140 Current Rate 1536 384

and your speed test is respectable for that configuration. If you are paying for more than that speed (1.5M / 384); then call ATT and ask them to check your provisioning.

Your attenuation suggests that the line could handle 3008/512 sync speeds. You can run the techreadout data through the the DMT tool at the link you posted to see what the line's estimated max speed is.

You might be able to call AT&T and ask them what the max. line rate is your line can support. Detailed questions to ask would be:

- what is your "copper" distance to the CO
- What is your "max rate" both up/down
- what is your noise margin up/down
- what is your attenuation up/down.

All of this they should be able to give you. And it might be in your modem stats, but I'm not that familiar with your modems read out and couldn't locate it directly.

Bottom line is, they won't sell you Elite if they don't think your line can handle it, hence they will have some data to make that decision upon.

It seems you should be able to get Pro speeds, but that is about it.
