      Question Router Stats/Wireless questions

      Hello all

      I am happy with the Sky service so far even though I had quite a delay in getting Sky and BT to sort my line out.

      I have now started testing with 2 routers and am a tad confused. The routers I am using are my old trusty Vigor 2600 and the Sky Netgear one.

      My setup is one PC connected via Ethernet direct to the router which in turn is connected into the test BT socket. The second PC is on a wireless connection.

      All tests are done grabbing the same files from the same place.

      When I have the Vigor plugged in I get an average of 650 KB/s on the PC connected direct and also 650 KB/s on the wireless PC

      When I have the netgear plugged in I get 730 KB/s on the directly connected PC and only 220 KB/s on the wireless PC.

      I have installed TCP Optimizer on both PCs and also have uPnP turned off on both after reading some posts on this forum.

      Am I to believe wireless on the Netgear is so bad as to lose all that speed???

      Also, my mode is still G.DMT and after some research on here I am wondering wether it would be wise to contact sky to flick the switch to ADSL2+? I remember seeing somewhere being mentioned if your Att is less than 45dB you could see an increase in speed. Is it worth it with my stats (see below) or shall I just stay with the speed I have now?

      Re: Router Stats/Wireless questions

      Certainly I find wireless is still a highly variable thing from one manufacturer to the next, and yes, you can get performance differences like that for no apparent reason ( that I have been able to find.). That particular Netgear does not have very good stats, and I have seen comments before about it's throughput being rather low.
