      Just a sec, I can't switch the router off because of the "testing period" to get to the test socket can i? The router is still showing 4095 download and 605 up. Shouldn't it update every day?

      Re: My ongoing Sky Unlimited BB experience

      One strange thing has changed since yesterday is, on my laptop, when i connect wirelessly and do a speed test, it shows a very high ping. Around 200+m/s to the different servers around the uk. Whereas yesterday it was showing the same ping as my pc which is connected by ethernet.
      I noticed the change after i logged into the 192.168.0.1 page on the laptop. I went on that to see is the download speed had changed and definitely did not change any settings at all.
      Sorry for the multi postings.

      It can take up to 3 days for the DLM to kick in.

      As DLM has not started (it usually starts in the early hours about 2.30 am) there is nothing to stop you moving your router.

      With regards your wireless ping, this is going to depend on the prevailing conditions. There may be other networks near you which are interfering with the signal. If you are using encryption, as you should be, this will also slow down the ping rate.

      I'll try changing the channel number and see how it goes but what i dont understand is how it was fine yesterday, all day, now it's changed.
      These are the router stats from test socket at 5:58pm today.

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4095 kbps 605 kbps
      Line Attenuation 16.5 db 7.1 db
      Noise Margin 14.7 db 19.5 db

      Update.... Sorry, I found a solution (kind of) to the "ping" thing....
      When I use Mozilla Firefox and the ping to Milton Keynes is 293m/s but when I use Google Chrome its 56m/s.

      It is possible there are networks near you which are not 'switched on' all the time. You may want to download Inssider and check at different times to see what is being picked up.

      I downloaded inssider but i couldn't get it to work as my laptop uses a built in wifi device which was not compatible with the inssider. I'll see if i can lend a wireless adapter from a friend of mine.

      Try Netstumbler, if you are not using a Mac it should work.
