      Smile Router Connections / BT Performance Tester

      Hi all

      I wonder if anyone could help me. I connected yesterday to SKY broadband
      connect package. I was using a belkin F5D7633-4Av1 modem router as the router they are supposed to supply will take 15 days to reach me.
      Yesterday it connected at 8128Kbps with a noise margin of around 7dB, I
      turned the router off last night and when I rebooted it today I was
      connected at 6400Kbps and a noise margin of 11.9dB. I've tried reboots and
      it still sticks around the 6000Kbps mark.
      Below are the latest from the modem.

      Data rate (Kbps) 6176 448
      Noise margin (dB) 11.9 22.0
      Output power (dBm) 19.8 11.9
      Attenuation (dB) 39.0 21.0

      Have I done something wrong of will it go back to 8128?

      Today i got my new router from sky, it was a quick 15 days.
      Anyways im connecting at a similar rate to last night. I did a performance test and it displayed the following and was wondering if some kind person would explain the results for me.

      Test1 comprises of Best Effort Test: -provides background information.
      IP profile for your line is - 4500 kbps
      DSL connection rate: 448 kbps(UP-STREAM) 8096 kbps(DOWN-STREAM)
      Actual IP throughput achieved during the test was - 4177 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

      Kind Regards
      John

      Re: Router Connections / BT Performance Tester

      So you have only been connected to sky for 2 days?

      During the first 10 days on the connect package there is a training period to find the highest possible stable speed. The speed during these 10 days can vary dramatically.

      In the test it is saying your line is set to 8Mb (8096kb), but your profile is set to 4500kb, this is to do with the 10 day training period. It will keep on setting different profiles to get the data it needs to find the best stable speed.

      So all in all you really need to wait it out until after the 10 days then see what your speed is

      It all depends on the results from the training period, but with them stats I am sure it should go back up
