      Hiya philby.

      You are not alone (does that help? )

      What speed is this, download speed or connection (sync) speed?

      What have you got here: http://192.168.0.1/system.htm

      hi

      it says

      download speed 15323 kbps

      upload speed 764 kbps

      but all the speed tests say my speed is slower than that.

      Re: slow broadband speed

      The speed that you download at is a percentage of your connection speed, if you do a speed test at DSL ZoneUK - Speed test when you review the results it tells you the percentage automatically and also stores a history in graph and stats form which I find very useful. I usually get about 80% of my connection speed due to overheads.

      Edit: forget what I said Use the custom test and enter your actual sync speed if you want an accurate %
