      no extensions

      We just have:
      - adapter that has the phone and sky box in it (not plugged into the filter ATM)
      - filter with the above adapter plugged in on side and the sky router plugged in the other side (as said above not got the adapter in this filter ATM)
      - the above filter plugged into the wall (in the master socket ATM as instructed)

      so it goes... Wall > BT socket > filter (router) > adapter (phone/sky+)

      same as me... umm so you plugged into the test socket and got 2047..

      your high NM needs to be tweaked

      but your on DLM i think..

      yes and no, unplugged and went into the test socket and got a worse connection 1.3 down from 1.5... then unplugged everything apart from the router and got 2.0 (2047)

      how do I tweak the NM?

      as said above mate, been with sky over a year

      Re: Recently really slow - youtube vids imposs to watch

      hmm.. weird you shouldnt be on dlm... but something has caused dlm to kick in ..

      on sky cst can tweak you NM but ive just noticed your on base so your supposed to have a high NM...

      have you tried another filter? and put everything back the way it was?....

      is your landline a DECT phone? because it might possably be interfering? this has been heard of before... or christmas lights on the christmas tree..strange i know but its been heard of before to have an effect

      Re: Recently really slow - youtube vids imposs to watch

      sam, speedtest results are on post #9 on page 1... back to a normal 1750 ish

      not tried anything new equipment wise
      I have put everything back a part from still being in the test socket... I am worried about taking it out now as the performance is back to normal!!!

      yes, landline is DECT but it always has been... this is the 1st speed prob I've had in over a year with sky.

      you might be right about the xmas lights, they have been on at the same approx time this problem started

      I don't know much about this DLM... if it lasts for 10 days I'll just leave everything as it is now in the test socket until after 10 days then put the face plate back on

      How do you know I have been DLM'd how do you tell?

      thanks

      I suppose you could try turning off the Christmas lights just to see if Sam is right

      Well to eliminate the interference that a Fibre Optic Tree or in this case Christmas lights emit. It might be worth doing and as you say look at more stats.
