      1. Try changing channel
      2. You should be getting nearly double the speed you currently are so plug in the test socket and try again

      Re: Router

      Well it's quite obvious you haven't in theory but with the current noise margin you have - I'd say you've either got a line fault or crap internal wiring (or a combination of the 2)

      Re: Router

      Download Inssider from the link below and use it to discover the channels in use in your area. Set your router channel to one as far from those in use as possible.

      Other things you can try are setting the Router wireless mode to 'g only' or '54g performance' if you have that setting. Also try turning your router the other way up. ie if you have the power plug downwards turn it so that it is at the top.

      If that still fails you can buy a wireless N router for about£20 and piggy back it on to the Sagem.
