      That's the problem I bet, try this thread:

      Speedtest .net is good for speed testing, but don't believe what it gives for pings. Try bbc.co.uk and see what you get from there.

      Thanks for your responses.



      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 5863 kbps 396 kbps
      Line Attenuation 51.0 db 30.3 db
      Noise Margin 7.3 db 22.0 db

      This was after checking wiring and extensions. Note the latest Speednet test was on the Dublin server as the London server has not changed from the last reading.

      I tried pinging BBC but only got Request timed out . I can say that page loading has improved but this may be down to me switching off the microsoft phishing filter !!!!

      Still open to suggestions

      Ignore the latency shown in the speedtest its hardly accurate, A bit like the speedtest.

      And that UK test isnt very good, As alot of users have reported faster/accurate'r results from the Paris and Dublin tests
