      is that just from speedtest.net or have you pinged the BBC or google (speedtest will not normally give accurate times)

      Hey

      System Up Time: 25:41:27
      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN PPPoA 35910 62385 0 42 526 25:32:16
      LAN 100M/Full 16359 9769 0 155 22 25:41:23
      WLAN 11M/54M 55354 29006 0 404 26 25:41:10

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 7616 kbps 384 kbps
      Line Attenuation 13 db 3.5 db
      Noise Margin 8 db 14 db



      Here are my router stats (attached as well as I can't get 'em to line up or insert an image :-P).

      On the whole, they seem quite good to me (am I missing something?). Thing is, I transferred in March-ish from an 8mb Freedom2Surf connection with my own DG834G router & with F2S, I regularly got 768kbps indicated upload but I've never been close with Sky & their 934v2.

      Shortly after getting Sky, I switched off UPnP to solve conn problems (which it did) without realising it hampered my Xbox conn.

      When I first started researching Xbox prob, noticed U/L was down at 150-ish (D/L down at 6mb-ish) but went back up to no.s above when rebooted.

      Incidentally, router takes at least 5 mins to sync when rebooted (previous router connected in seconds).

      Have switched UPnP back on now and have experienced 3 disconnections in four days. Waiting for the next downtime (currently 25 hours up) before having another go at DMZ or port forwarding.

      Pinging bbc.co.uk gets me this:

      PING 212.58.224.131 (212.58.224.131): 56 data bytes
      64 bytes from 212.58.224.131: icmp_seq=0 ttl=122 time=60.0 ms
      64 bytes from 212.58.224.131: icmp_seq=1 ttl=122 time=50.0 ms
      64 bytes from 212.58.224.131: icmp_seq=2 ttl=122 time=50.0 ms
      64 bytes from 212.58.224.131: icmp_seq=3 ttl=122 time=50.0 ms

      --- 212.58.224.131 ping statistics ---
      4 packets transmitted, 4 packets received, 0% packet loss
      round-trip min/avg/max = 50.0/52.5/60.0 ms


      Which seems pretty poor? I'm thinking I should be pinging about half that, what does everyone else think?

      Re: Bad Ping On Sky!

      Give Sky a ring now, chances are they will do it whilst on the phone. Tell them you need your Max_delays lowering.
