      Re: Issues with new connection

      My point is that the speed is no better with a wired connection. There is no issue with my wireless connection - it works perfectly well on any other connection I use it on.

      Although the sync speed is fine I thought the problems with the actual speed I was getting was due to problems in Sky's network?

      PS - the TweakTester site you linked do says it should not be used on Vista so I don't really want to try it (especially when other connections work OK!)

      Sorry, I should have made it clear it was not to be used on Vista, I usually do when I recommend it. If you are syncing at 2048kbps you should achieve 85-90% of that in download speed.

      As isitme says, you should be hitting around the 1.8 mark on a speed test due to through-put etc.

      Yep, 1.8 was more what I was expecting - the speeds I was getting really didn't seem up to par. Still awaiting Sky's reply to my reply!
