      Ok it shut down again around the same time?

      Took ages to get back up, but it did without me re-starting the router.

      tried going onto the router settings in IE8 and it would not load, so full internet down.

      Should I phone sky now?

      I have tried about 6 of the 13 channels.

      Thanks guys and I know I am a pain but love my internet

      Connect via a ethernet cable and all will be fine, it is a wireless problem. Sky cannot do anything about other interference or people using wirwless routers, doorbells, video senders near you.


      Wireless is a poor way of maintaining a connection and sending data, use either a wire or homeplugs.

      Just phoned sky, Blame the filter.

      It was the micro filter.

      Changed it. moved the router outside the cupboard and I am now getting 9000kbps.

      They said thats why they provide three in the pack as some could be faulty.

      Glad to see they trust the product they provide.

      Anyway, thanks for your help guys, I know I have been a pain in the a$$, but I am sure you have not heard the last from the BBB... broadband bandit.

      My DML finished on the 23rd of march at 12000kbps, but they said around 10 for the wireless PC

      One last issue, re connection times

      Hey all is ok now that I have put a new filter on, but turned the internet on
      this morning and it took 15 min to connect to the network.

      Does anyone know how to make this faster, or any problems with this?

      Last post I swear!!

      Now enjoying 11mb direct and 10mb wireless, when its connected.. LOL
