      No good I have a lift in my house makes getting around a lot less cumbersome stair lifts are a real pain.

      Cool! I could do with one sometimes but thats usualy self inflicted.



      My struggles continue but my speed has found new limits in which to opperate!!!...

      I've had downloads of any where between 46 kbps and 760 kbps!!
      One time, it took 6 mins to down load a 12mb file and less than 1min to download a 15mb file another time.

      I'm sure they're doing their best to help!

      After a week of monitoring my connection i have noticed... not a lot!

      Sometimes its great... 760kbps but others like all this mornibg and afternoon.. 37kbps or somewhere in between.

      The connection status always stays on connected with an UpStr, of 448kbps and a down of 8128kbps.

      Does capping the speed really stabalise it for most people?
      Cause my connection to the exchange, noise and atten. levels are all great apparently.


      Although i have just rebooted the router and i've got 760kbps again???!!!

      Are you supposed to turn it off when not in use.. or reboot it every so often?

      Yes it can but before you go anywhere near talking that route look in the router forum above there are some very good suggestions to try and help.

      I've browsed the router pages and not really seen anything that seems to apply.
      Although its hard to take in all thats in there.


      I got on to the Sky help again and they've done more line tests and stuff as i seem to get to the exchange ok at 8128kbps.

      But to be honest its all a bit out of my small circle of knowledge. I can understand whats going on at a basic level but i've never had to look into these sorts of things b4.

      Apparemtly i'll hear something from them today after BT do some kind of report.



      So at the moment i have a choose of 2 symptoms:

      1. Its jumping all over the place, 35 - 760 kbps. Just wondering up and down for what ever reason.

      2. It fades away with time. After resetting to router its sometimes high but goes with time.

      But just to be fun you could have:

      3. A bit of both.


      Maybe when i find out it could be of use to others!




      Oh, don't know if this is of help but if they ask you to do NETSTAT in the command prompt don't have MSN running as it brings up about 30 port connections, and the techie will say go away and run spyware/malware checks.
