      When DLM is finished you should get 17-18Mb. Whether you want to break the T & Cs by using your own router is up to you, no one will encourage you to do so, but many do

      Nice one, I'll let it run for a good 10 days and see where we are then. I'd prefer to go back to my other router purely because it's setup just as I need it and it's damn stable. Looking forward to that sort of speed now

      It seems DLM hasn't even started yet.
      It's still exactly the same stats as when I first connected it days ago.
      How long does it take for them to start upping the speed or am I going to have to call them?

      Also, it is plugged in via the Master socket - no extension problems to worry about.

      It can take 3-4 days to start but it will do no harm to give them a call. For some reason it does not always start as it should, it might need manually configured.

      I was told from Sky that my line is capable of between 10-20Mbps, so hopefully it will go up.
      It has not changed from 4091 kbps since connection however....

      DLM should be running and can take 10 days to complete so hopefully your speeds should increase.

      With that attenuation I doubt you will get 10+mb but you should get near it.

      Well its the end of the said 10 days and it has only gone up a bit which is really dissapointing!

      I am now getting:

      Up sync speed: 796 kbps
      Down sync speed: 5019 kbps

      I was told that the router has to stay on for the whole time DLM is running, but we had a power cut the day after my previous message. Would this of stopped the DLM?
