      Upload speed advice please.

      I have recently switched over to Sky unlimited and because there is work going on in the house and the electric is on and off I had to have the training disabled and a manual sync speed set.

      I removed the ring wire from the master socket and am very happy with my download speeds but was just wondering if they set the upload speed right. I don't fully understand the attenuation and snr on the upload side of things and what should be expected.

      Stats below if anyone can advise and also if they think the download could be changed.

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 13087 kbps 671 kbps
      Line Attenuation 33.0db 18.6db
      Noise Margin 7.3db 10.0db


      Thanks very much

      edit.. even tho my profile says non sky router it is the new D-Link one which wasn't on the list when signing up.

      That's interesting. Can you supply any details about it, model number etc and is it a mode 'N' I am sure lots on here would like to know.

      To your problem. If you are sure your wiring is OK then give Sky a ring and ask them to increase your upload speed. From the attenuation you should easily get over 1Mb but your noise margin looks a bit low. Give them a ring, if you get one of the cleverer agents he/she will be able to configure it for your best speed.

      Re: Upload speed advice please.

      Thanks for the fast reply... So my download speed looks right at what they have set it but I might get 1 meg on upload? If that is right then awesome.. I will leave them alone for a day or 2 tho to make sure this download stays stable.

      How can I tell you what model number it is.?. The only reason I know it's a d-link is because it's written on the bottom of the case next to the ssid and network key box. As for N, I only see G, B or G+B in the sky firmware. Firmware Version SKY_1.11

      Open the router settings and on the status page it should tell you what model it is. Look in the wireless settings and see what you get in the drop down box next to 'Mode', this should show you whether 'N' is available. A 'proper' N router will usually have 2 or more aerials.

      As for N, I only see G, B or G+B in the sky firmware.
      If that's the case it is bad news.

      I don't see a model number in there, unless the firmware version gives a hint.

      Here is a screeny

      I have never seen a firmware version 1.11 yet, nor have I even heard of d-links being sent out by sky. Weird.

      In regards to the upstream, it looks like it needs a good reconfiguring by sky.

      This appears to be the same model and sky have added the S

      D-Link ADSL2/2+ Modem with Wireless Router

      It looks just like the other sky routers and looks nothing like this d-link. It also has no external antenna just like the normal sky routers.

      That's a bit sad. It looks like Sky may just have changed their supplier and not upgraded anything. There were rumours that N class routers were being tested, but this does not appear to be one of them.

      There definitely are N router staff trials going on, but these new d-links are news to me!
