      Problems arising since speed increase

      About two weeks ago i noticed my wireless devices laptops, computer and tablets were taking longer to connect to the net when waking from sleep mode, this seems to have coincided with a speed increase in my BB from 9 to 10Mbps, is it possible that the speed increase and the connection problems are connected, and is there anything that can be done to restore the stability.

      It's unlikely the change in the speed would effect the time it takes devices to connect. Have you tried rebooting the router?

      It was after a reboot the speed increased, have tried again to no avail, so will just have to wait and see if it improves.

      If you are using Sky's famous wireless booster that may be the problem. Another possibility is that a new wireless network has switched on in your area which is on the same or near the same channel. Download and run Inssider, link below, use it to find the best channel for your area. Set your router to use the best channel.
