      Don't use Speedtest.net (as I've found out to my cost).

      What do you get from Sky User - Broadband Speed Tester

      It means you've not got an IP address...

      read THIS and things might become clearer...I really hope so as otherwise you should leave things well alone as you don't seem to have a good grasp of ADSL and you're likely to make things worse before they get better...

      What is your sync speed like now? If you reconnected and it looks like you have, it has probably gone down.
