      Re: first day with sky unlimited

      well i tried it and its about the same speed just over 3 meg i tried it with every channel.let me get this right i do have to put the router into the master socket.(its not good to have extentions is that correct).

      right i could get a longer grey phone cable then i could have router next to pc and then connect with ethernet cable.

      or is it better to keep router near my master socket and get a longer ethernet cable

      what would be better and can you get longer cables

      This.

      Don't run longer telephone extension cables; run a longer ethernet cable instead.

      Try updating your wireless adapter drivers. Go to the Manufacturers web site and get them from there, don't believe Windows when it says you have the latest.

      As User says, don't use a telephone extension, it will badly effect your connection.

      Ethernet cables can be got in any length up to 100m. Here is a selection from Amazon-
      Amazon.co.uk: ethernet cable: Computers & Accessories

      Don't be fooled into buying the gold plated ones, they are no better than ordinary stock.

      You can easily run a 50m+ ethernet cable with no loss in speed so you should have no problems.

      It will tell you on your MySky account. Usually when your router does not resync for a couple of nights, its done.
