    Downstream Upstream

    Line Attenuation 28.9 22.0 dB
    Errored Seconds 0 0
    Loss of Signal 0 0
    Loss of Frame 0 0
    CRC Errors 0 0

    Are these typical or poor?

    I don't think there ever is a "typical" because the readings will depend
    on the ADSL modem (even two from the same maker might give different!),
    and the conditions on the line at the time.

    All looks fine to me on the readings you have. I have higher Downstream
    margin, lower up, and a higher downstream attenuation, slightly lower up.
    After a period of time, my router (Origo 4-port for these readings) has a
    number of errors reported, but cannot say I've noticed them affecting use:

    Downstream Upstream

    SNR Margin 31.5 26.0 dB
    Line Attenuation 34.8 20.0 dB
    Errored Seconds 31 0
    CRC Errors 43 0

    That depends on your line length.

    There is no such thing as "typical" values.
