slow speed for max package
im getting slow d/load speeds for the sky max package , can anyone help me out please...
here are my stats from my router
connection 2048kbps 416kbps
attenuation 15.5db 15db
noise margin 30.5db 14db
my attenuation and noise margin are good but, i am only getting d/load speeds of 260kbs with wireless connection
i am using dell wireless adapter , so i know the speeds will slow up a bit , as im not using ethernet cable
is ther anyway i can get my d/load speeds up?
i have changed my router settings. unticked upnp and changed to auto108mb.
to stop connection loss , which has worked a treat...just need to get that d/load speed up , then i will be a happy bunny...

Have you tried the TCP optimiser from the speed test section?

Your connection stats look fantastic - in fact too good. If the router is playing up then it often reports 15.5db attenuation - which yours is. Noise margin at 30.5db is fabulously high. If both of these were right you'd be connecting at full speed i.e. ~16000kbps.
To begin to start working out what's going on please turn off your router for at least 10 minutes. Before turning it back on make sure it is cool and stays cool by putting it on end on its feet.
What are your stats when you power back up? At the moment you're connecting as though you're on Sky base.

Is it slow speeds whilst using wireless? or when connected via ethernet cable?

slow with wireless , ethernet seemed to be at least 4 times faster..
would go back to ethernet but we justed moved pc away from phone socket..

Try updating the drivers for your wireless card, from the manufacturers website, also try a different channel if not already done so

In the router it gives you the ability to change wireless channel, give me a shout on here tomorrow night and I will try and go through it with you
