      yeah sorry mate, I should have been more clear.

      Someone else pays for it. It's part of the Sky TV Package, we're paying for 8MB, and I've had it for a while. I used to get about 400kb/s +-, that was before they capped the line for no reason

      Have you tried plugging in to the TEST socket behind the master socket faceplate and use a wired ethernet connection only. You would be well advised to forget about wireless until your speed has been fixed.

      Post your results from the Test socket.

      sky do not throttle afaik, so if your throughput is low (lower than what you should get on a 3.5meg conection) it may be some update to your comp ?

      could you roll back your drivers and see if there is any change ?

      I don't really think there is much wrong with your connection, you are connecting at about 3600 and achieving a download of 2900. This is slightly over 80%, which is about the expected rate allowing for overheads. The slow speed your are experiencing on some sites is quite normal. If you go to a fast server such as MS and Download IE7 that will give you an idea of you peak speed.
