Re: [CenturyTel] Poor Line Attenuation

Well I swapped out the modem and gave the Actiontec a try. Does not look too favorable to me... nothing improved and the speeds got a lot worse.

Westell results prior to disconnecting it are show first.

Have you checked the line stats with the modem connected directly to the test jack at the NID?

I have not, but will shortly.

What I have found is that while the speeds are much slower and pages load a good bit slower most of the time, there have been no timeouts... and it's been 2.5 hours (solid Internet use since I installed it - about to take a break). Usually I would have already been so aggravated with timeouts that I would have switched over to our satellite connection.
