Just did a little searching - am I correct that the 6dB downstream noise margin is "really bad" and that the 17.4dB of output power means that the DSLAM is effectively "screaming" to try and hit my modem?
It's been a while since I was on regular ADSL.
6dB s/n is usable.
As I recall, I had an attenuation around 56dB, so I was near the end of the line. The output power was usually in the 12-14 range. So, yes, the high output power in your case hints at a noisy line and an attempt to drown out the noise.--
