BTW, can anyone tell me the chances of 6MBps operating on a line that has the following stats (I only have a Westell 2200 to obtain line stats- NO MAX SYNCH info available)
SN 20 db
Atten 43.5 db
DSL Rate 384kbits/s , 3552kbits/s
I get reliably 2.8 MBps on speed tests. The reliable part is why I haven't gone comcast.
You are at the max sync rate for the 3mbps service using a standard ANSI ADSL connection, and your current SN margin might allow you to sync at a 6mbps rate if your account is changed to allow it (you won't really know until you try it).
I think the biggest problem might be with the older Westel 2200 since I don't think it will be able to use ADSL2(+). If you are physically connected to a ADSL2(+) capable DSLAM, a newer modem that can take advantage of ADSL2(+) would give you a better chance of getting a reliable 6mbps sync rate. Perhaps opening a thread in the »AT&T Direct
forum and supplying your account information might let you know if your DSLAM is ADSL2(+) capable.--
We can never have enough of nature.
We need to witness our own limits transgressed, and some life pasturing freely where we never wander.
