Low Connection Speed
Hi guys - great site
i'am on sky max, live1.7km from exchange and should be good for at least 5.5Mbps according to various sites. I am wireless connected.
HOWEVER these are my speed test results from toastnet. the result is typical result based on 7 days testing:
Your Results: 814 Kb
My Router stats are as follows:
ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 11027 kbps 766 kbps
Line Attenuation 45.5 db 24.8 db
Noise Margin 7.4 db 10.7 db
Does the router test indicate connection speed of 11 Mbps - if so why is the speed at my pc less than 1Mbps - or am I missing somthing
I have run the TCPOptimizer with some sucsess.

Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.
If you would like to know the straight line distance to your exchange then
Would you like an idea of the possible speeds you will get with the Max Package then click here or for the Connect Package then click here

Have you tweaked your windows settings before for a 1MB connection by using figures such as 13900 for TCP Receive, if so this is most likely causing the low speedtest results.
Try a tool like TCP Optimizer at http://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php and use optimal settings and drag the slider to your current sync rate. Apply the setting and reboot, it makes a back up of your existing setting so you can revert back if you wish.
I am patiently waiting for an activation date, 3 weeks and counting.....

hi, please try speedtests using a wired connection if possible,
this way you can rule out if the wireless part is causing the slowdown or not,
then you can work on this issue when the problem is figured out.

I have found using this "no frills" speed test is a good indicator of your actual speed:
Try downloading the medium or large file and see what download speed you get.
