I have the above modem, yesterday had Telecom (Chorus) man out for other issues.

He tested my ADSL1 line and showed approx 7 Mbps just BEFORE the modem, However I get approx 3.1 Mbps Out ( speed test from telecom site). The uplaod speed where much the same before/after modem

1) is this normal.

2) IS there any setting on the modem (physical or sofware) which I can check. If So How ?

3) Are moden modems better? If so sugestions please.

Thanks in advance.
