Re: Slow speeds
Thanks for the help
I've been trying to connect wirelessly because the main socket is a bit away from the room with the pc in - moved the router into that room, and i'm getting much better stats (both wirelessly and using the ethernet cable):
"Your download speed is 3416Kbps. That is 2349Kbps below the average for your package
Your upload speed is 322Kbps. That is 191Kbps below the average for your package"
Still can't get more than a couple of hundred with my laptop (outside the room that the modem's in, but...i can live with that

Re: Slow speeds
That is a bit better! You would get a few more Ks plugged in to the test socket, but it may not be worth the bother. Wireless is not going to be as fast, all you can do is change the Channel in the router until you find the one with the best signal. You can also experiment with turning the router around a bit at a time and also raising or lowering it. Unfortunately there is no 'magic bullet' you just have to keep experimenting until you find the best combination. With their built in aerial, the newer routers seem to benefit from being stood on end with the bottom facing the way you want the signal to go.
