      Download speed

      I am just wondering if my connection speeds seem reasonable?

      conection speed 13520kbps 764kbps
      line attenuation 36.5db 18.3db
      noise margin 5.2db 16.5db

      My router is connected to my master socket and i am connecting wireless.
      I have done a speed test on speedtest.net and the result was
      download 4179kbps upstream 407kbps ping124

      Thanks

      Re: Download speed

      Your connection speed looks very good but your noise margin is a bit low. The new routers can handle this better than the old ones, but if you do have problems, have a look at these sections
      1. Speed tests and how to get better results - Sky User - The unofficial support forum for everything Sky!
      2. Cabling and faceplate help - Sky User - The unofficial support forum for everything Sky!

      With regards your actual download speed, this is never going to be as good using a wireless connection. If you try a test wired, I am fairly sure you would get more than double this speed.
