Does this ADSL connection is ok?

This is a newly-commissioned ADSL line, using Cisco 877 router. This is believed using PPPoE, with ppp user authentication done by the ISP contractor.

Upon connecting, I did a quick check from the router. I typed "sh dsl int atm0", and the result is shown in the attachment.

However, what surprise me is the "capacity used" shown 100% on the ATU-C (ISP site). Does this means connection may not stable? What else can I do?

This is using all the capacity of the line. If it were to use 50% you would just have half the bandwidth availiable.

This ADSL line is 10M. Does it means that I can use up to 10Mb for the bandwidth?

BTW, how to check what is the bandwidth usage at any time?

Capacity Used:   46%                             100%
Noise Margin:    27.0 dB                         12.0 dB
Output Power:    16.0 dBm                         4.5 dBm
Attenuation:      9.0 dB                          2.0 dB
Defect Status:   None                            None
Last Fail Code:  None
this refers to your down /up

I use SNMP and mrtg to monitor bandwidth usage.
