Hi there and thanks for the response - I switched of the UPnP when I first logged on, got online and fread around a bit on Sky's BB. I haven't noticed any problems but it may be because I switched it off I haven't had any problems...
At the moment I can't afford to shell out for a new socket so that will have to wait (if I can't fix this problem by then). Stability is not great - I ahve to reboot around 3-4 times a week, but it's better than when I first got it and had to reboot a couple of times a day.
Is it possible that my router profile (not sure if that's the correct terminology) is only set for ADSL and not ADSL+2?

Doing it yourself would cost <£20, you might be able to persuade BT to do it for free
Yes it's possible you could be on ADSL - I don't think Sky would do this unless you'd asked them to. Have you been in contact with Tier 3?
You can telnet into your router and discover lots of things including what ADSL service you're connected to. Can't remember the parameters off hand but will try to find them if you're interested.

I haven't spoken to Sky at all. I'v e just been trying to telnet into my box and can't seem to - is my username the whole thing including the "@skydsl" bit or not?

Sorry mate, you may have missed it on my first post - I have used the URL Injection hack to get my true username and password. My problem right now is when entering my info do I use the whole thing i.e. username@skydsl or just or just the 12 digit first bit (i.e. "username"). I've tried both ways and still cannot get into the darned thing. I just want to be able to check if it's on ADSL+2 or not and switch it over if it isn't. I can't seem to find the thread that give you all the commands (Jose's page doesn't seem to provide the info I remember seeing)

Yes I knew you'd used Jose's hack to get your password/username. What I didn't say very clearly was that this isn't the password to get into telnet - nobody knows what that password is.
As I said earlier, I know there's another URL hack to get to the telnet function but can't remember where I saw it. I pointed you again at Jose's site as I half felt that's where it might have been. I didn't check before posting as the missus was calling me to come and eat.
I'll have a think and see if I can remember where I saw it and get back to you.
OK - found the info on modem stats (it was on Jose's site):
This will give you a stream of information about the ADSL connection.
Now just need to find the telnet hack
Here you go - found the telnet hack (credit to mossywell):
To enable telnet use the following URL then telnet to your router - no password required:

Aah, now your post makes sense. Sorry. So it's secrets, within secrets, within secrets!I didn't check before posting as the missus was calling me to come and eat.

Yes - no doubt the same scenario repeated in thousands of homes across the country
Let me know how you get on with the info I added above.

Looks like I am using ADLS2+. Don't now if anyone can look at the following and tell me whether I'm connected at good,bad or ugly rates for my line:
/usr/sbin/adslctl: ADSL driver and PHY status
Status: Showtime Channel: FAST
Upstream rate = 764 Kbps
Downstream rate = 7266 Kbps
Link Power State: L0
Line Status: No Defect
Training Status: Showtime
SNR (dB): 7.1 12.5
Attn(dB): 40.0 23.9
Pwr(dBm): 1.3 12.4
Max(Kbps): 7412 864
Rate (Kbps): 7266 764

Nothing obvious jumps out at me (though someone with more expertise might feel differently) other than the point I made some while back in the thread.
With a relatively quiet line with your attenuation you should be able to connect at something around 12000kbps.
That you're not suggests a noise problem. Connecting to your test socket would confirm or this or not.
