If adjustment is needed, leave the choke on and loosen the cable hold-down screw; pull the cable back to where the choke baffle is completely closed, then re-tighten the hold-down screw.

Which is better DSL or cable internet?

DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) is normally better than a cable internet system because of choke points in cable systems. In a DSL setup your 'choke point' is at the provider, while in cable systems the repeaters and hubs can be choked in just 'your neighborhood' because of a high bandwidth user, long before you reach your providers connection to the internet. NOTE: Fiber Optic Cable (TV) services normally have a much higher bandwidth than the old coax systems, and less choke points. Of course that is raw systems, you will always find that some providers are just better at planning (provisioning) than others; so your results could vary.
