      Looks fine! There is too much disparity between the tests, I would guess your actual speed is somewhere between the two. Try a test at http://www.skyuser.co.uk/speedtester/

      Here it is. Look like it's round the 10MB speed I am getting. Not bad.

      Not bad, but could be better

      When you are running a speed test you should do it with only one browser window open. With the tabbed browsing we use nowadays, having a lot of tabs open can impact on the speed. With your sync speed you should get around 12.8Mb with an ethernet connection, a bit less with wireless.

      What OS are you using?

      On this laptop, Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, and on my desktop PC, Windows 7 Home Premium. I use Firefox as my default browser. Thanks for the tip on the tabbed browsing.

      I was hoping you were going to say XP as there would possibly have been room for improvement. However if you are using wireless, that's quite good. It would be interesting to see what you get with ethernet.

      Its not that XP is any better, it is just not configured properly for broadband, so configuring it can make a big difference. Vista/Win 7 are pretty well configured out of the box.

      I would have expected better. Was that with just one machine connected to the router?

      Yes, this laptop.

      It's probably up and down because DLM is running??
