      Sagem router - Slow speeds ...15 minute walk from exchange.

      Hello Folks,
      Rite i've just got sky, say 2days ago after moving house, where i use to live was a fair long way from the exchange, good few miles and so i could only get 1.6 mbps. So i presumed when i moved i would expect great speeds, hence i got the 8mb package. But i'm fairly dissapointed i have a 7.8 Mbps connection on the router but my file transfer is round 25 - 30 Kbps.

      I dont realy like routers and would much prefer to use my speedtouch modem and patch box, so i thought i'ld have a little play and put my router settings into the modem and connect directly. ...so when i couldnt find my username and password in router settings i came on to here. and found out that there hidden bit of an annoyance.

      So is it the router making my it slow? or is it something else because i found on my own set up, i had a significantly faster connection on my pc connected to the modem than any of the others connected through the patch.


      Thanks in advance
      Jimmy

      P.s anyway to get the username and password out of the sagem?

      Okay stats from the router

      Should also point out that sky broadband wasnt avalible in my area and they've put it to BT. But looking at the tool on the site that tells me whats avalible in my area im starting to wish i had gone with tiscali

      Speed testing tool on the website results

      Re: Sagem router - Slow speeds ...15 minute walk from exchange.

      Couple of things

      1) If on BT product ie Connect, there is not much point in trying anything until the 10th day has passed, as your line is training to get the best speed

      2) 7.8mb is near as damm it 8mb

      3) Your speed test results are roughly what I would expect to see

      4) Slow downloads, are they by any chance torrents etc? If so you will need to open ports on the router.

      edit:

      That is just so out of date, those results are conservative estimates from BT via Sam Knows

      your speed test results are about right - where are you getting downloads of 20-30kbps from?

      try the speed test in my sig and see what speed you get - it should be around 600KB/sec+.....unless you're wireless then it might be less...

      ^^ Connect package (which is the same as the sky mid package, only thing diff is you have to put up with the contention/throttling as its a rebranded BT connection, but does not look to bad for you at the mo)

      Are you paying 17 ?
      if so could be a while before you get the chance to swap over the sky package
