      Sky Router usage on 2 systems

      Hi I was wondering could anyone help me. A few weeks ago my sky base was working great for downloads and browsing etc but I was having problems on my ps3 while trying to connect to friends. I discovered that by setting my ps3 on a DMZ setting, I could connect to my friends no problem. But since then I have noticed that my internet connection on my laptop is going very slow, even videos on youtube are taking forever now. I switched to Sky Everyday and was told I could receive download speeds of upto 10 MB/s. I was just wondering could the ps3 being on a DMZ be affecting download speeds even when the ps3 if off due to it sharing the router?

      Download Tests are saying I am receiving 130kb/s but it is taking some webpages and videos ages to load.

      Thanks for your help

      When did you switch to Everyday? If it was within the past few days, DLM will be running and could have reduced your speed.

      Post your stats, from the normal position and from the Test socket. See the Quick links on the left for how to.

      It should not be necessary to have your console in DMZ, but that is another story.

      We have detected that your ISP is Sky. Your download speed is 200Kbps. Your upload speed is 316Kbps. That is the stats I got off the speed test but downloads in vuze and youtube still really slow for some reason.

      Looks pretty dire.

      Please click the Router Stats link in the Quick Links box for advice on how to take your stats.
