today I figured that my DSL pipe didn't become get faster despite my
recent upgrade from 2mbit/256kbit to 3mbit/512kbit because i forgot to
adjust the pipes in the shaper.
I was about to just go ahead and enter 0.95 * 3000 and 0.95 * 512,
when it occured to me to check with by backup SMC ADSL wireless router
that polls its own modem for DSL statistics. What I found were
diverging stats. I also used speedmeter.nl to test end-user speed. See
| official | SMC | estimated by
| contract | report | own testing
| | |
Upstream | 512 | 448 | 364
Downstream | 3000 | 3456 | 3320
I need the shaper to be effective, but when I enter 512 into the
upstream pipe it will saturate if the SMC and my tests are correct,
Also, downstream is really faster than 3000, what do I set the
downstream pipe to?
These puzzle me. I guess guess I should check with my ISP Arcor why
the upstream down't match with our deal.
