      slow speeds but router is synching fine.

      i have recently been experiencing slow speeds, but sky router is synching fine, i have a 54mps belkin pci card, it connects at 54mps and excellent signal quality, but still get results like this.



      i have reinstalled windows, no difference

      there is only me on my network.

      this time last week on speedtest, i was getting 10mb download speeds.

      so i thought my pci belkin was a gonna, i just bought a new 54mbps usb dongle, installed fine but still the same results.

      i took my pci card and my usb dongle to a friends house, both installed and worked flawlessly.

      also i have a laptop, just ran a speedtest with my comp off, 10mb results.

      anyone shed any light on what could be causing this?

      i keep thinking that my power supply mght not be sending enough power to the comp, therefore faullty connections PCI/USB.

      really strange, anyone?

      Try the speedtest on this site, Speentest.net sucks.

      Your noise margin is a little low, how are you connected to the phone point etc.

      Also you need to try a wired connection via ethernet to rule out wireless interference, this is the most common problem as the speed reduces as the packets get delayed.

      Try wired, I think you will be surprised to see it is working fine.

      There is nothing wrong with the connection if you can 10mb on the laptop.
