      Exclamation Unusual speed test results, up faster than down!

      I've just done some speed tests at various sites and the average is around:

      Down: 560 kbps
      Up: 600 kbps

      My router is set to 8096/768 and I used to get very close to that when we first joined sky, it was around 8000/600 on the speed tests. Any ideas or tips on how I can solve this annoying problem?

      edit: Some more info from the router
      Code:
      Connection Speed  	8096 kbps  	768 kbps
      Line Attenuation 	39.0 db 	27.0 db
      Noise Margin 		8.9 db 		13.0 db




      Results from speedcheck.ispconnect.co.uk
      Your current bandwidth reading is: 627.60kbps which means you can download at 78.45 KB/sec. from our servers.
      Your current bandwidth reading is: 601.10kbps which means you can download at 75.14 KB/sec. from our servers.
      Your current bandwidth reading is: 598.10kbps which means you can download at 74.76 KB/sec. from our servers

      It's been like this for a few days now, probably longer but I only started testing it recently.

      Are you using wireless? One of your neighbours may have just installed a wireless router and that could be interfering with your wireless signal, so if you are using wireless, you could try changing wireless channel.

      Good point, these are some results from the LAN connected PC






      Obviously a lot better, I'm going to try changing the channel now.

      edit: Posting from the wireless PC again after changing to channel 9 and it looks a lot better:


      Thanks very much!
