      SOLVED: ADDED NEW ROUTER - Line activated 13th August - very slow uploads to vpn over wireless

      Hey guys,
      I recently upgraded from sky broadband to the basic fibre package.
      I use wireless generally as the router is plugged into my tv, sky box etc. Wireless connection seems pretty good - 4 out of 5 bars.
      I'm not sure if things are working correctly or not.
      Web pages are loading fairly fast but not noticeably faster than my old adsl line.
      BUT using my work vpn it takes an age to save anything to my work server. It was MUCH quicker on adsl.
      Anyone had poor experiences using a vpn with fibre?
      My connection speed seems fine although it has varied a lot when using speedtest.net.

      WAN MER 4449565 9330298 0 3568 2977 48:53:55
      LAN Up 2784445 1305178 0 26507 14905 169:03:48
      WLAN Up 24854408 13408065 0 340649 28368 169:03:25



      Broadband Link
      Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 39994 kbps 10000 kbps
      Line Attenuation 16.9 dB 0.0 dB
      Noise Margin 14.9 dB 13.13 dB



      I know there is a period where things need to settle down (been on for 169 hrs), but very concerned about the vpn. I'll be installing an RT-AC68U shortly which may improve performance over the SR102 that is currently hooked up.
      I'm thinking of cancelling fibre and returning to adsl while i still can rather than be tied in for 18 months. Any advice? Should i stay or go?
