      Angry Help with slow VPN connection

      I've recently switched to Sky for Broadband and since I've switched my VPN connection to my work is horrendously slow.

      I've spoken to Sky and they've told me there's nothing they can do. Searches on the internet show that lots of people have had this problem but nobody seemsto show what to do to fix it or what actually works?

      Anybody able to help me out there? I've got the D-Link router on firmware 1.11? (Not that this means anything to me - not up to speed on all this stuff!!)

      Please help..

      Think that the problem is simply the package that you are on.

      Its probably not just the VPN that is slow but the whole connection.

      Sky Connect is one of, if not the worst broadband available. In saying that, I assume you are contacting your office outside of the peak times, so you should get a decent speed. Post your stats from the normal position and from the Test socket and we will see if anything can be done to help.
