      Re: broadband speeds for gaming

      Dont believe it after 45 mins on xbox live lost connection net light on router went orange had to reboot. now im on G.DMT am i more likely to lose connection than on ADSL2+ they seemed to have sorted my connection before i upgraded Heres my router stats since i rebooted it.....
      Router StatisticsSystem Up Time: 0:13:41

      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN PPPoA 1416 1413 0 0 0 0:12:31
      LAN 15 0 0 0 0 0:13:41

      Connection Speed 6336 kbps 768 kbps
      Line Attenuation 48.0 db 28.0 db
      Noise Margin 6.8 db 14.0 db
      Why would the connection speed go down to 6336 when before it was 6432? If theres no dlm on G.DMT do sky still adjust the speeds for a stable connection?

      21 April, 2009 18:48:20 5464 Kbps 406 Kbps
      speed test seem pretty simular why would i have been disconnected from xbox live?

      You will be much better on G.DMT with those stats, ADSL2 is only really useful if you are able to get over 8mb anyway.

      ADSL2 tends not to handle lines under 8mb too well and can cause them to loose stabilty.

      Re: broadband speeds for gaming

      Your connection would have dropped due to the noise on your line 'using up' most of the noise margin. It then reboots and syncs at the best speed it can, allowing for the noise on the line at that time. It is possible a sudden spike in the noise caused the drop, which would account for it re-syncing at much the same speed. Keep an eye on it and if it happens again at about the same time, have a look around your house for something that may be causing it. CH switching on is one thing that can cause it.

      You are much less likely to loose your connection on G.DMT than ADSL2+. You should not have to reboot to get the connection back, it should do it automatically within a couple of minutes. Incidentally, the time you are looking for, for the Internet, is the one shown against WAN (0:12:31). The system time is time the router has been active, Which can be much more than the WAN time, depending on when it was rebooted.

      Re: broadband speeds for gaming

      Isitme you are right yet again!
      After upgrading to max getting the delays reduced and fiting a filtered faceplate, my gaming acheivements have not improved drasticly (but my broadband speeds have) so for anyone who is a crap gamer like me if you are crap with your current speeds you will still be crap after trying everything maybe just not quite as crap, but you will feel much better because you've done everything you can to improve your gaming abilities, so if you are still geting shot like me JUST BLAME IT ON THE HOSTS CONNECTION!

      Glad you got it sorted out.

      I will be moving onto a LLU provider soon as I have been messed about by Entanet too much.
      Also found out there is an exchange down the road from me, But the BT engineer I spoke to said it's like a post code lottery if you can get it and I cannot get on it because my wires do not cross down there lol.

      Re: broadband speeds for gaming

      Been on the max package for over a week now but I still dont seem to host any games on cod on xbox live, would this be because other people have got better upload speeds so automatically they get to host it? Heres my stats now, how do they look to you guys in the know and is there anything I can do to increase the upload speed?

      these results seem really good compared to other times I've checked, I've run the tcp optimizer and my pc is wireless.
      Cheers in advance for any replies!

      Looks like speedio is competing with speedtest.net for the crappyest tester. There is no way you are getting 12,239 kbps download with a sync of 5088.
      Is your Xbox connected by wireless? As far as I know Live picks the fastest connection to host games and using wireless will reduce your chances of being picked as Host. If you are not wireless then others must have faster connections and there is not much you can do about it.
