      Hi Tony I am really sorry but there is no tricks or tweaks for the connect package the reason I am still here is to turn the light out and close the door when the connect package is no more. There maybe more help in the end of march but thats not certain. Have a look at the link Isitme posted lots of good information on it sorry not being able to help
      Hi Tom that looks like a new link I have not seen that one before very interesting have to remember that one

      Changed the router still a DG934G new one but now 3616kbps was 3968 Kbps have to see what happens next. It is strange that every routers connection speed

      Hi can you do it wireless. if you have a wireless adapter all you need to do is put the router near the master socket and connect the router through the filter to the master socket then you will be able to do the test wireless. the IP Profile for your line 3000kbps should be about 4500kbps I was told it takes 72hrs for profile to change. The thing is 5db downstream noise margin does it ever drop out and reset itself. If you use an extension a good Idea is to use ethernet cable you can get it in various lengths on the link shows the faceplate and cables through various links on that page Sky User - Which ADSL Faceplate Filter?

      Re: Steve's Sky Connect speedtest blog

      As Steve is hinting, you should be syncing at a much higher speed. With your attenuation you should get the maximum available, 8128kbps. Until you can plug into the Test socket and take the stats from there, it is impossible to say whether the reduction is due to your internal wiring, likely, or your external line, not so likely. The router must be plugged in using only the filter and cable supplied by Sky, using a telephone extension cable will not give you a true reading.

      Hi Just wondered if you had an adapter (Dongle) to plug into your computer so you could go wireless I used to use an extension then read about ways of improving the connection my router now is by the main socket connected with rj11 to the main socket which is a XTE-2005 has two connection points 1/ Telephone 2/ ADSL the XTE-2005 is already filtered so no need for filters. then from the router to the computer I use aBelgin RJ45 FastCAT5e Patch Cable , 5M Snagless Molded . (ethernet cable) instead of an extension. Hassle free
