      System Tray Icon

      I've just noticed that the icon in the system tray that shows I have a live connection says Speed: 54.0 Mbps. Before moving to Sky Max, I was with Orange on a 2 Mb connection and this figure also read Speed: 54.0 Mbps. I just ran a couple of different speed tests and things are working very nicely (at the moment) and even without specific speed tests, I know just from regular surfing that my Max connection is way faster than my old Orange one, so how come the system tray shows the same figure?

      Are you on a wireless connection?

      54Mbps is the speed of the transfer between the PC and the router - and the icon will display the routers max. transfer speed for your connection be it wireless or wired LAN. Log into the router for the internet connection speeds.
