Upgraded to U-verse Max and only get 2.0 Mbps download if im lucky.

Yesterday I switched from Elite dsl to U-verse max (12 Mbps).  Ran a speed test and only hit a max of 2 mbps if im lucky, and average around 1.6 with my wired pc.  Uploading only .25 mbps and doesnt really change.  Ran a ping test and had 0% packet lose, 0 ms jitter and a ping of 26 which is great.  I only have the U-verse internet.  Nothing else is connected or running.

Im using the Motorola NVG510 At&t sent.  Not sure what is going on here.  Ive searched high and low for any info, but most people with slow u-verse max were still getting a much faster download speed than just 2 mbps.  Any ideas?

Well, there's always the reboot the modem and see if that fixes it approach.

If that doesn't work, I'd suggest a call to Tech Support as even though the download speeds are 'maximum's' and not guaranteed, and speeds may well vary from test to test - a little, you're getting no where near the speed I think you should be getting.

Re: Upgraded to U-verse Max and only get 2.0 Mbps download if im lucky.

There is a diagnostic page on the NVG that will show your line rate both up and down.  Since I don't have that modem, I'm not real familiar with how to get to it.  Start at http://192.168.1.254 and wander around until you find it.

 

Anyway, that information will tell you whether your speed issue is due to your line conditions or something else entirely.

Wow, changed my filter configuration and am now downloading around 10 mbps, and getting almost 1 up.

I'm afraid your connection won't be very consistent. Your Noise Margin and Line Attenuation are not adequate enough for 12 Mbps. If you get intermittent connection... Contact support as you might have a bridge tap or something wrong with your line.

Cool. Glad you found the problem with the way the filters were installed. If you have a chance, post the stats the way they are now.

What exactly was the "change" to your filters that you performed?  I just upgraded to Max, and things actually feel slower, though I haven't done any speed tests.  Thanks

As OP went from DSL to ADSL2+ (510 RG) suspect changed line filter between wall plate and RG.
