      Hi guys,

      On Friday I attached a VDSL Faceplate and connected my router directly to the master socket as advised. Here are my stats now,

      I have no idea if this has made any difference but things seem to be working better.

      Get Sky to run DLM again Pav, you've got lots of room for improvement there... Your attenuation is better than mine, you should end up with a much better upstream than me...

      Tell them that you have improved your line and want it re-run in the nicest possible way.

      I didn't get much joy over the phone but the live chat sorted it...

      It will not be much better unfortunately, probably 50-60 kbs, for some reason the upstream never seems to go above 1.2Mb. Another couple of Mb is likely on the download though.

      They have ruined your upload speed,

      Call them and ask them to raise it a bit, you should get at least 50% more.

      Spoke to Sky again this afternoon and they have finally "configured the line's upload speed to a higher level". They didn't appear to want to do this but got there in the end! Here are my stats now,

      System Up Time: 132:57:33
      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN PPPoA 4067000 5482986 0 1002 5056 132:56:38

      Connection Speed 16370 kbps 1142 kbps

      Once again, thank you so much for all your help!

      Re: Increase my Upload Speed?

      Hi!

      It has been over 6 weeks now since making changes to my line and I seem to have problems with videos buffering when streaming them online (iplayer, youtube, etc). I am sure that it is worse now than it was before the configurations. Would anyone be kind enough to take a look at my stats and let me know if there are any issues.

      These are the stats from my normal laptop position,

      System Up Time: 336:48:08
      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN PPPoA 11083545 17730052 0 822 2508 262:02:26
      LAN 100M/Full 8648319 4334776 0 2654 456 336:48:03
      WLAN 11M/54M 17309076 13680060 0 841 646 336:47:51
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 16156 kbps 1103 kbps
      Line Attenuation 27 db 10 db
      Noise Margin 7 db 7 db

      Many thanks!

      Are you wireless ? If so have you tried changing your wireless channel,

      Thanks richone54. Yes I am wireless, I'll give that a go when I get home later. I assume what they advise on the video below (try Channel: Auto, 01, 06 and 11) is best way to go about it.

      Not checked your link but sounds about right there is some sort of programme you can download ( called ssid or something sim) that can check wireless signals and what channel they on, this there may be a link somewhere in the wireless forum .
