      Advice please guys !!

      Hi guys,

      Ive been with sky broadband for a year now, and on the whole its been ok, but as of late the speeds have been pretty poor. Ive just done a speed test on here and it was just over 1500kbps, this is with an up to 8 meg connection. In the past ive had between 4-5000kbps.

      Any advice would be much appreciated
      cheers

      I assume because you've posted in the wireless forum that this refers to speed problems when wireless?

      If so then run a comparison wired which will determine whether wireless is the issue. If it is then you need to improve your wireless signal quality. Experiment with changing wireless channel and small changes to the router position.

      If it's not a wireless problem then I'm not sure why you posted in the wireless forum? I'll move the thread to the general help forum.

      Please post your router stats and the results of a speedtest from Skyuser.
