      ping = how long it takes for a packet to be sent from your pc and back to you.

      Sky allow you to reduce your pings by quite a bit by reducing your max delays, but if you are getting 30ms it would seem its already been reduced.

      Seems fine, looking at that i would say your max delays have been reduced, maybe they did that while you've been on the phone with them.

      Cool, I'm going to close this thread sort of now and go and order a filtered faceplate.

      Thanks everyone

      When you come back, continue with this thread so that everyone knows what has been said and done or everything will just be repeated.

      Ok

      What I have done:

      1. Find the master socket and plugged the Microfilter into the Test socket with the Grey line in the ADSL part.
      2. With the phone in the Modem part, I then phone Sky Broadband (08442 410 515)
      Selected 4 and then 1 (Broadband not working) and got onto a tier 1 person.
      3. They then talked a load of rubbish and then you get put onto a CST team person if you ask.
      4. Ask them to raise your download speed cap to maximum.
      5. Buy a ADSL filter faceplate from the internet (Anything above 10 can last for years).
      6. Install the faceplate yourself or get someone who knows something about electrics to install it.
      7. I've now increased my speeds to 5 times faster than what it was.

      Mb is a con and it means MegaBits not MegaBytes so don't be expecting 1.5 MegaBytes per second (Download a song in 3 seconds)
      I'm now getting 150 KilaBytes per second (0.15 megabytes)

      Hope you have solved the problem.

      Thanks to everyone who replied.

      What he meant is, if you come back after you have tried the filtered faceplate because your still having problems don't start a new thread, just continue with this one.

      Its only a con to those who are ignorant of how ADSL works, I'm afraid. You are not alone in being ignorant of the facts, many are.

      He summarised what had happened, i think he mis-understood, but quite frankly im getting sick of you and the way you keep taking digs.

      Somehow i don't think you needed to tell me not to explain.
