      Hey Smithy - how goes it? Wireless. Hasn't been rebooted in a long time.

      The downloading is sometimes affected, but it is mostly the uploading that is crawling, or going up and down.

      BTW - I haven't called Sky on this yet, as I prefer to see what's going on here first

      If you are connecting by wireless that is probably your problem. Try using ethernet, I think you will find there is a big difference.

      You might also want to try changing your wireless channel, this sometimes helps, but it will still not compete with ethernet speed.

      As above, the problem will be with the wireless, chances are there is someone else nearby using a similar channel number which is causing interference.

      Test with an ethernet cable and then use homeplugs, a much better soloution to wireless.

      Oh, and it goes fine my end, thanks for asking. (btw, I had the same problem as this with wireless, that's why I moved to homeplugs).

      Re: Slow Uploading? Anyone Else?

      First off, many thanks to both of you for replying. I'm using my laptop, so the ethernet is connected to my pc, and I use the wireless for the laptop. However, though I was aware of the technology to transmit the internet around an electrical circuit, I certainly was not aware that this stuff was actually available! So... I just need to buy a pair of homeplugs and away I go?

      That's all. There are some good deals on eBay at the moment, just make sure you don't but the old type. There are some 14mbps ones going very cheap, but give them a miss, get at least 85mbps, 200 if you are going to do a lot of file transfers on your LAN.
      solwise homeplug, Computing, homeplug, homeplug 200mbps items at low prices on eBay.co.uk
