      @Wheelie they aren't talking about the order line checker, they are talking about the BT speedtest page.

      I haven't got the url to hand, but I found it on adslguide.org.uk

      There is no site that can give a user there sysc speed at best they can give a rough idea from some sites such as this one http://www.dslzoneuk.net/maxspeed2.php

      If this is the site http://speedtester.bt.com you mean the that will not either.

      Wheelie,

      Sorry mate, but just because you don't currently know something doesn't make it wrong.

      The site shows the Sync speed reported at the router for both upstream and downstream but the main focus of this post is not about the sync speed, it's about the IP speed which as I stated before is only known by the BT site, referred to as the IP profile.

      Here is the URL: http://test.speedtester.bt.com:50301/ (From the bookmark I have on home pc)

      But as I also said previously you will need your Sky username from the router, the discussion of which isn't permitted here which is why I omitted the URL in the first place.

      I also still don't agree with this being in the router forum, I think its more of a service issue and is likely the reason lots of people will cancel whilst still inside their 8 days service.

      My results from the site:

      Test1 comprises of Best Effort Test:
      IP profile for your line is - 1500 kbps
      DSL connection rate: 448 kbps(UP-STREAM) 3328 kbps(DOWN-STREAM)
      Actual IP throughput achieved during the test was - 1362 kbps

      If you wish to discuss these results please contact your ISP.

      If you are experiencing problems with specific applications, servers or websites please contact your ISP for assistance.

      Your test has completed please close this window to exit the performance tester.
      So as you can see, regardless of what I sync at currently, the exchange will only allow me throughput of 1.5mbs until I stay connected at a higher speed for more than three days.

      The BT speedtester does not work for me (I am on sky mid), maybe it only works for BT or based services (like connect)

      You are correct but as your post did say
      You can see your sync speed by visiting the BT checker, but as you require your Sky username and the extraction of which is beyond this sites T's and C's
      and no link supplied this then is misleading as anyone who reads it will go looking on the BT checker and find nothing.

      Now you have posted a link I understand what you are saying and yes that will supply a lot of info if you happen to be able to to use it, which excludes the majority of SkyBB customers for obvious reasons.
      I also still don't agree with this being in the router forum, I think its more of a service issue and is likely the reason lots of people will cancel whilst still inside their 8 days service.
      Let me see possible router problems, lets look in the router forum for help.

      To be honest, I'm not sure. The resetting is to allow the conversation between the router and the exchange to take place properly, not resetting may end up with you being set on a slower and less reliable speed perhaps.
