      Not much improvement I think it may be time you phoned Sky and asked them to put you on ADSL2+. I am almost sure that they will tell you that you have got all your line can handle, but be nice and ask them to try it anyway.

      The problem is, even if Sky do change you to ADSL2+, which should give you a better speed between router and Sky that will do nothing for the apparent half-speed at which your LAN connection is operating at. Either you've a Sky router or PC NIC fault that is throttling the speed down like that. Very bizarre. Have you tried another port on the Sky router?

      Just to be 100% sure, do you have a friend with a laptop they could try on your router? If they also got a low speed it would rule out your PC as the problem. Please remember, that using wireless, you are never going to get the maximum possible speed.

      I do, will have to ask.

      But, will a second PC do?

      Forgot to say, I have a small home network with a second unit using a wired connection...which I use for storage and backups only with XP installed.

      I will give that a speed test and get back to you.

      That will do fine, just remember to run PC Optimiser on it.

      I think you are going to have to wait for a reply to your email or phone them.
