turbodsl speed issues

Message 1 of 2

I was originally on the 3M/768k plan, and I recently upgraded to the 7.1M/768k turbo plan, and I believe it was activated today, since my download speeds went way up.  But maybe not way up enough.....


I ran various speed tests (on my wired computer) and while my upload speed is right around 768, my download speed caps out at 5M.


Is this what I'm supposed to be getting?  I currently have a Westell Wirespeed dsl modem (which the specs say are rated up to 8M downstream), and I am also running a WRT54GS router. 


Thanks in advance.


Oh, also I'm not sure exactly where to look in my router for my uplink/downlink speed information.  I looked at the logs but there was nothing in there like that.

Post the modem status from your Westell Wirespeed dsl modem.
