      Unhappy :: Download speed 88kbps and currently 2.6kbps....

      However, my router says it's 2046kbps, SkyUser tool says its 88kbps, but my downloads through FF say it's only 2.6kbps.

      I've had slow download speeds for the last week now it's taking hours to download a zip file of only 12mb! Is this common at the mo? I've been a Mid user for over a year.

      could you re-boot your router as the line attenuation say 15.5db and is a know bug with the V1 routers

      could you also post some detailed stats (see second link in my sig and look for the mognuts utility)

      P.S could you also confirm if wired or wireless and wher you plug the router in (extention / master socket / test socket)

      Hiya, thanks for the reply. Router usually gets rebooted regularly anyway as sometimes internet locks up, but this hasn't happened for a few weeks. Have just got back home so will post requested stats in a mo.

      These stats were taken after the reboot. Taken using wireless vista prem laptop placed right next to the router, but I also used wired vista ultimate and a wireless xp laptop which are all suffering from the same connection. Router into master socket.

      Am just going to try downloading something again now - which have just done and it's not going above 40kbps.

      Have tried both, but this machine I'm using right now is wireless, and about 2' from the router with full signal. Wired is desktop quad-core.

      for the purpose of testing could you just use wired and do another speedtest on the sky user (close all other programmes / downloads)

      i can see no real problem with your stats (albeit they are only for 6min), and i do think its a wireless problem, only way to check is a wired test

      2064kbps on the wired desktop. My laptop has never been this slow downloading before though and I usually use it upstairs without losing speed. Will check my system then, and see if anything's upset and doesn't want to play ball!
