      Slow speeds.

      Hey SkyUsers.

      Ok so im using the sagem router, had this router since they started shipping it. Ok so my problem is, i have very slow speeds through this router. The router shows my line as capable as 5600-6200. depending on which socket i have it plugged into. but i can only max it out at 800. no matter what im trying to do. browse youtube / download / speedtest. hardly anything wants to load, and speedtest takes nearly a minute to start testing.

      Ive restarted the router. sometimes it gives me full speed but hardly ever. maybe once in about 50 restarts. its really starting to annoy me now.

      Ive checked the other topics, slow speeds one, one checking attentuation ( however you spell that ). the noise etc.

      Anybody got any ideas?

      Cheers

      Re: Slow speeds.

      could you post your stats and confirm where you plug the router in (extention / master / test socket)

      just to also check, are you wired or wireless and what do you het from the skyuser speed tester

      Re: Slow speeds.

      I currently run it on an 10M extension from my master socket, ive also tried it directly through master socket and its the same.

      Ive tried both wireless / wired .. on 2 laptops / 1 desktop each with wireless & wired connectivity.. and my x360 isnt performing well online like it normally does.

      SkyUser speed test = 600Kbps down / 334 Kbps up.

      Ive read the stats grabber post, as i have the sagem router it says i can only get simple stats

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 5664 kbps 448 kbps
      Line Attenuation 44.0 db 23.0 db
      Noise Margin 11.6 db 22.0 db

      Let me know if theyre right?

      Cheers
      Sam

      Re: Slow speeds.

      those stats are the ones i was after
      are those stats from the extention, if so could do a comparison set from the test socket (see first link in my sig, test socket is behid the faceplate of the master, but as a note when you remove the face plate any other extentions you have will stop working)

      Edit: your profile says you are on mid, but your stats suggest you are on the connect package, could you confirm

      Re: Slow speeds.

      These are from that test socket mate.

      mmm, i may be on connect im not sure. i live with my gran and she pays the bills.
      i think she payed 17.99 when sky first offered the broadband. been with them since they started offering it.

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 6208 kbps 448 kbps
      Line Attenuation 43.0 db 22.5 db
      Noise Margin 12.1 db 21.0 db

      SkyUser Speed tester = 200Kbps down / 317 up.

      Its dropped after router restart again. it normally does this but if i restart say another 20 times out of them 20 times i will get upto about 1000Kbps

      2ND EDIT: Just to confirm. i am on connect not mid. will get that changed in my profile.

      Cheers for making me check lol
