      Can anyone help me to put this right?

      I'm on sky connect.

      Interestingly, the router is showing the download speed as 5056 kbps.

      I'm getting similar test results whether connected wirelessly or by ethernet.

      Well, I don't think you are going to be able to tweak that!! Ha ha! My performance is terrible too, but maybe not for the same reason. I am 4 miles away from the exchange, which means that the typical expected performance for the line is only 512kb/s. In practice I can get as low as 150kb/s. This tends to vary a lot though, because my line suffers a bit from noise. Basically, mine is a terrible line. Not Sky's fault at all, really. Down to BT.
