      Ok I rang sky back and got through to the same muppet who told me to replace the filter with the spare one. What for? I'm no expert but I know that aint the problem.

      I still have no ADSL light but I can randomly get onto internet sites. I even manged to do a speed test at one point and got 1496kbps (I think that's good)

      I don't know what to do. These people at Sky don't have a clue what they are talking about.

      Hi

      I can confirm you are browsing this site on a Sky IP address - I can pm you it if you want

      Yeah I can see the IP address and that but it does not stay connected for long and there is no green ADSL light even when it does connect. I just dont understand what's going on.

      Hello again.

      I don't know what happened over night but the ADSL light is now lit up and it's been connected for over 7 hours.

      I did a test download from a newsgroup server. The file was in DivX format and was 794MB. It took 11 minutes to download and was running around the 1560kbps mark.

      I'm not clued up on speeds but I think this is very good. I used to get about 790kbps on my 8MB connection.

      Thanks for all your help.
