      Thumbs up Light at the end of the tunnel

      Hi to all
      there is light at the end of the the tunnel.
      we`ve all had the same problems ie. slow speeds, disconnections etc etc. but for anyone still having problems , stick with it. read the advice on these threads and do what they say, but be prepared for an up and down two weeks, this time limit seems to be an adjusting time for sky and your router to get stable and sort the best connection out for you.keep rebooting each day and set your router up as described in the router threads and eventually after about two weeks you should be fine.if you look at my stats i have been stable for 140 hours now with a download speed of 10 mbps, my connection speed is 14250 upload 764 and my NM 12.3 - 13.0. GREAT STUFF EH !
      i could have quite easily cancelled my sky BB in the first couple of weeks but i`m glad i didn`t now, things are looking good and for a tenner a month 10 mbps download speed (http://www.adslguide.org.uk/tools/speedtest.asp) isn`t bad.
      Stick with it, it will be ok in the end.

      I have been connected for 38 hours now without any disconnections and improved speeds especially in the evening when things at first slowed down.
