Hi guys/girls,

After getting slow speeds for a few days I just removed the 6dBmv attenuator from the back of the modem, which has been there ever since we got broadband.

My signal levels used to read:
Downstream Receive Power Level : 6.18 dBmv
Downstream SNR : 29.55 dB
Upstream Transmit Power Level : 42.00 dBmv

And they now read:
Downstream Receive Power Level : 11.49 dBmv
Downstream SNR : 30.73 dB
Upstream Transmit Power Level : 41.00 dBmv

I can now see an increase in speed of double! I was getting 500Kbps on speed tests and Im now getting 1100Kbps. I read the signal level recommendations and since Im on 256QAM these new levels are also acceptable.

Just a small note to anyone else on VirginMedia cable broadband who is also having speed issues, you might want to try this :)


Because of this change you may notice speed increases/decreases and instability. If this happens, please tell me since Im not around all the time to keep an eye on it. If problems do occur I might put the attenuator back on.
