It seems you are lacking the proper link layer accounting, with an ADSL line you in all likelihood will need to add the atm keyword for both directions. I also concur with Jonathan that you shou;d set the correct overhead parameter, as a first test adding “atm overhead 48” to your cake invocation should help to test this theory. If this helps you could try to inquire from your ISP which encapsulation is used (or use https://github.com/moeller0/ATM_overhead_detector to try to empirically figure out the actual overhead).

Best Regards
