      I don't quite follow. ADSL has a maximum connection speed of 8128kbps, if the router is set to that mode, it cannot possibly get 13000kbps. If it is the router is not reporting correctly.

      'ADSL' is just what that connection is called on the O2 Router connection page (to tie in with what it used to be on O2 Access). The mode it connects at are defined by the exchange equipment, there is nothing in the router settings to force it to that.

      Ahh, the O2 router is tied down the same way as the Sky ones then, where access to the full settings is blocked. The routers are probably set to MultiMode in the hidden settings, which would allow them to connect to whichever mode was available from the exchange.

      I don't know half as much as some of the people on here but but I know that adsl peaks at 8128kbps so when the router connected with this setting the first thing I did was check the connection speed and not within the router but at my side using the equipment we have to check customers connections. Must admit I was a little confused but there was no change in the speed at all.

      Important update:

      We have been informed of a page on the Sky site which provides some additional information. I have cross posted the article here, with a link to the original page. It would be nice if some members could check these out please:

      Using your O2 or Be router on a Sky Broadband (ADSL) connection

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms
