      Thanks alot Joss, I know you probably have to answer questions like these all the time and I can tell it would get frustating answering noob questions Lol I just really dont know much about routers etc.

      Hopefully Steve I have always wanted to learn the details of broadband and how connections work etc but i suppose that will come with time and experience im just glad that there are websites like these that have dedicated users that know what they are talking about and dont mind helping out people that need help, I mean no offence to to the call centre help guys but they dont have a clue some of them, I'd rather come on here and ask for help than phone up sky.

      Re: Just Got Connected Help

      Lewis I was just like you not to far back. I was on a fixed 2 mb package with zen internet for years. I didn't need to know anything, it just worked with out problems.
      I then updated to the 8 mg zen max pack. It then I had to learn pretty quick that it was a whole new ball game.
      With speed came the need to learn. Don't worry Lewis were have all been in your shoes too.
      The difference is that the guys on here and other forums have taken it upon them self's to learn, to find out how ADSL works. My self included. The more you become involved the more you learn. Sure I have made mistakes and been jumped on for doing so, Its a sharp learning curve Lewis but I find enjoyable. Plus
      I have nothing better to do as I am retired.
      There is a wealth of knowledge out there, seek and you shall find.
      A really good place and source of ADSL related Knowledge is kitz ADSL Broadband Information
      Spend some time there reading and you will soon start to understand what adsl is and how it works.

      Please remember there is also a wealth of knowledge here too in the forum and tools sections.

      Knowledge is key to understanding Lewis.

      Re: Just Got Connected Help

      I suppose im just a bit of a cynic, I just never trust what experienced people say even though ive been told that it will sort itself out when DLM is finished lol im just that way just now where im constantly checking my router stats to see if anything has changed. Yea joss I 've been reading up on kitz, its a bit hard to understand but im sure through reading it and listen to what other people say I'll begin to understand whats going on.

      Oh yea ive been doing some speed tests on speed.io now and again and 1 in like every 3 tests I do my download speed comes up at 20000+, is this relevant to my optimal speed or a mistake from the website ?
