Re: [Speed Problem] Crazy fluctuations in speed on 6 Mbps AT&T D Downstream connection speed 4960 Kbps looks to be a problem. It says your line is not capable of 6M service and may be unstable, hence the provisioning below what it will take to get 6M.
DNS has nothing to do with this.
Call AT&T support and have the line checked.
Also, test at the NID if possible to eliminate inside wiring from the situation.
Just figured out that I have an inside wiring problem. However, I'm currently wired directly to the NID and it still hasn't fixed my speed issues. It has fixed my attenuation and noise issues though.
Just spoke with the support people and they are doing a truck roll in the morning... While plugged into the NID, my attenuation is 28 and noise is 20... but still only getting 1.5 Mbps on a 6.0 Mbps connection.
