    I'm also maxing out at 74/16

    Are there any tricks to get full steam ?

    Got issues with my connection, giving up trying to unlock my modem as I might screw things up with connection dropping.

    So, anyone in Bath, or fairly close in surrounding area to me, who could unlock mine please.

    it really is super super easy, just connect yourself to lan port 2 and type in an 192.168.1.1 (your router might have the same ip so either needs to not be connected or change it. Then just login with default username and password, and click upgrade firmware, same as on a normal router/modem etc

    For anyone who is interested in how it compares to BTs cabinets, here is my Origin connection with Digital Region South Yorkshire.

    I think I am the first person to get the HG612 working on a standard Digital Region line.
    I have documented how I got it working over at the unofficial Digital Region Community Support Forum.

    Interestingly, my speedtest.net results seem to be more accurate for upstream than they were with the Cellpipe that Digital Region use for their CPE.

    It also interesting that my max attainable upstream seems to be much lower than most peoples lines on BT, yet my max attainable downstream is higher.
    Presumably this is due to the band plans which appear to use less tones on upstream and more tones on downstream, than BT.

    The next thing is to try and convince them to turn off interleaving on my line because that's 16ms of additional latency for no good reason.

    Notice also how unlike BT they over provision the speeds to compensate for overheads? I suspect this is to get comparable results when EVERYONE on the network seems to have interleaving turned on whereas BT have their DLM to tweak that on a per line basis.

    PHEW!

    After a few engineer visits, the problem on my line has been sorted! (or seems to be so far)

    I have now got little or no errors. Hope fully DLM with now take the interleaving off my line again :)

    Previously, after 30 mins of being connected id have over 3000 CRC errors and a few hundred FEC & HEC errors :D this was taken after 35 mins up time!

    just tried to unlock my modem but stumbled at the first step. I followed the instructions to the letter. set my ip to 192.168.1.100, powered down the modem, pluged into LAN2, held reset, power on and held for 5 seconds after.

    When i try and go to 192.168.1.1 i get nothing? Not sure what i'm doing wrong? Could there be a newer model which this doesnt work on? I only got infinity installed on thursday?

    Just got the BT Infinity 2 package installed (I'm in Stratford, London).

    Here are my stats:

    Code:
    # xdslcmd info --show
    xdslcmd: ADSL driver and PHY status
    Status: Showtime
    Retrain Reason:	0
    Max:	Upstream rate = 10252 Kbps, Downstream rate = 52784 Kbps
    Path:	0, Upstream rate = 8589 Kbps, Downstream rate = 44600 Kbps
    
    Link Power State:	L0
    Mode:			VDSL2 Annex B
    VDSL2 Profile:		Profile 17a
    TPS-TC:			PTM Mode
    Trellis:		U:ON /D:ON
    Line Status:		No Defect
    Training Status:	Showtime
    		Down		Up
    SNR (dB):	 6.4		 6.0
    Attn(dB):	 0.0		 0.0
    Pwr(dBm):	 12.8		 5.7
    
    Is this ok or to be expected? I don't really understand all the info - any guidance appreciated.

    Thanks,

    aaazza

    Your speeds are slow. Compared to mine:

    Is your line aluminum, or are you far from your cab?

    Not sure on both counts - anyway to check?

    I'm in a small block of flats so I guess there may be a possibility of an aluminum line.

    I'm not too sure, but your speeds are low for Infinity 2.

    Found out today that my new flat has the ability to get Infinity 2 :D

    Finally get away from over-subbed Bristol VM!

    Unfortunately due to the aluminium cabling predominant in Milton Keynes I won't get near the max speeds of 17a. This is what I get right now which I'm still very happy with considering over a year ago I was getting 1.5-2Mbit on DSL :

    Code:
    # xdslcmd info --show
