      Re: Does being connected to main socket really help?

      I just tried doing a BT test and this happened

      Results Image not loaded

      Test1 comprises of Best Effort Test: -provides background information.
      Your DSL connection rate: 4832 kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 kbps(UP-STREAM)
      IP profile for your line is - 4000 kbps
      Actual IP throughput achieved during the test was - 83 kbps

      This test was not conclusive and further testing is required.

      Please wait whilst you are redirected to undertake a second test.
      You now have two choices-

      1. If you wish to carry out further tests and you are competent to make changes to your ADSL system configuration, then please click on 'Continue' button.

      2. If not, please close the window using 'Exit' button and contact your ISP for further assistance with these results.




      what do i do?

      Would you like to post your stats from the normal position and from the Test socket?

      If you are running XP, click the DrTCP link below and take the Tweak Test. If it makes recommendations, download and use DrTCP.

      You might also want to try starting in Safe Mode with Networking and do a speed test at Sky User - Broadband Speed Tester This will show whether some of your software is slowing you down.

      No, that's just as bad.

      Go with Plusnet gamers package if you want trouble free gaming, otherwise try:- Zen, IdNet or ADSL24, they all do a BT rebranded product but much, much better than Sky's
