      Post your router stats as a more senior member of staff will request this. But I would also phone Sky and let them know. There may be something that they can do. Also, are you wired or wireless?

      Phone sky and ask for the gaming profile
      it will drop your ping to around 28

      Re: My Broadband Ping and speed has DROPPED

      As I posted in your other thread. Post your router stats as a more senior member of staff will request this. But I would also phone Sky and let them know. There may be something that they can do. Also, are you wired or wireless? It might be worth posting here as the gaming forum is less used than the help forum.

      Re: My Broadband Ping and speed has DROPPED

      as you say only 3 bars on wireless try differnet channels on router page 192.168.0.1 username admin password sky
      but if you getting noise on telephone line then this is what really causing issue post your router stats from normal setup and from test socket with just router attached

      Re: My Broadband Ping and speed has DROPPED

      As myself and tenar have suggested, can you login to your account on the router. Type 192.168.0.1 into your address bar, when asked to input your username and password, by default these are admin [username] and sky [password]. Scroll down on the first page, left click on "Show statistics". Then copy and paste the information that is in the box that pops up. Then log out of the router once finished.

      What you might also do during the mean time is try + answer these.

      // Are you running wireless or wired?
      // Can you perform a speed test using a wired and wireless connection to get a ping figure, unreliable from speedtest.net but it will suffice. *Try to run the tests when nobody else is using the internet, or do as I do. Tell them not to do anything on the internet/close all browsers whilst you test the line ;P.*
      // Does anybody else use computers whilst your gaming as this can effect your ping and connection, especially if they are downloading?
      // Call sky and tell them about your high ping as your gaming alot.

      From there members than recommend a course of action.
