      Hi pleased you solved the issue. A good idea if you can do How to test your ADSL in the Master Socket the reason is to see what variation there is on your stats and to see if there is any difference with your noise margins

      You must be on virgin which is cable and should not fluctuate like an ADSL line that might be why you are enjoying speedtest.net so pleased for you. But there are without a doubt so many posts and all saying that speedtest.net is useless

      I've done that test before and found that I'm getting roughly +3mb of download speed. But i will try again tomorrow and post results so you can see the noise margin. But last time there was definitely an increase of 3mb in speed. Also, ive just found out that if i move my router from one side of the wall its against to the other, my connection speed drastically improves upstairs :s

      so your saying its a line problem rather than a problem with speedtest.net? speedtest.net is fine, if i can get regular reliable results with the site then as you pointed out it is a problem with the adsl line not the speedtest website this would also explain why the skyuser speedtest was giving similar results to speedtest.net
