      Dads broadband speed is much slower !

      When i used to live with my dad we used to have over 3meg, i remember atleast 350kb/s speeds and that was with BT ! and we talking a good number of years. I moved out and he went over to sky, the speeds at first were very good again 300+ same a BT.

      Yet today after a good few months I came over to see how things were doing with the place and he is only now getting..

      DownStream Connection Speed 1987 kbps Line Attenuation 51.5 dB Noise Margin 3.1 dB
      UpStream Connection Speed 797 kbps 31DB 7.1DB

      He says internet is fine as he didn't notice because to be honest is a complete novice when it comes to computers and the internet!. He is paying for far less speeds at the same address !


      Looking at the faceplate, you have a microfilter with the router plugged into that, but then the phone part of the filter has a splitter plugged into that with the phone and the other cables going off into the sky boxes.

      You really need to try the Test Socket behind the faceplate, just plug the Router in there and post the results.

      Re: Dads broadband speed is much slower !

      Modem Status Connected
      DownStream Connection Speed 1984 kbps Line Attenuation 51.5 dB Noise Margin 3.0 dB
      UpStream Connection Speed 797 kbps

      Test socket -> microfilter -> Phone

      Took out the splitters as a test, and it's exactly the same!

      Also takes a while to connect, btw i'm going out now so any help i get i can try out later in the week... thanks
