      slower than the a baby growing to adult

      I ALREADY POSTED THIS THREAD SOMEWHERE ELSE BUT IT WAS IN THE WRONG PLACE SO I COPYING IT HERE.
      ------------------------------------------

      i got sky base and i never went over the 2gb allowance and i normally download around 25kbps and my max is 28.6kbps the fastest i ever downloaded at but the glorious moment went and it went around 23kbps again.
      if my speed can reach 2mb how come it never ever went over 56kpbs and also ive been a cumtomer for 2 years now with base.
      is there a way i can get the speed up to 2mb or atleast 100 kbps becasue im fed up slow connection!

      heres the stat things

      System Up Time 01:30:20
      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN PPPoA 24597 29413 0 646 6623 01:28:41
      LAN 10M/100M 7405 8549 0 935 502 01:30:17
      WLAN 11M/54M 22578 16683 0 5702 224 01:30:09

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 256 kbps 128 kbps
      Line Attenuation 30.0 db 21.0 db
      Noise Margin 33.0 db 14.0 db

      (if some lines or the title doesnt make sense feel free to correct me.)

      i want to get virgin media since thier 2mb is faster.
      someone tell me how to raise the speed anything! IL JUST DO IT!! EVEN IF ITS illegal!

      Plug into the test socket behind the faceplate of your master, and try again.

      Have you checked your physical setup? If you are on the main or test socet with filter (no extension leads etc in play) and do not suffer line noise etc you should get your speed.

      Re: slower than the a baby growing to adult

      you don't need a test socket or anything - the line is quite blatantly capped...

      call Sky and they can sort it out...

      also - wrong forum...

      Yes, call Sky, you don't need to check anything, you will get 2Mb quite easily, in fact you could get 8Mb if you wanted it.

      I don't know why you have put up with it for so long, but it does reinforce my belief that there are probably thousands in your position and don't know about this forum, so put up with it.

      Did you call sky? How many sockets are on your telephone line and how many are in use?

      Re: slower than the a baby growing to adult

      Have a look at my link for test/master socket below to find the socket, then get your stats again. Thats If you have called sky because you are capped. Those speeds are not going to increase unless you call them to uncap you. 08442 410515 is the number. Or use the kana form on the link below. Personally I would call because they can see if there are any other issues there.

      If you don't call Sky it will remain that way. There is nothing more anyone here can tell you. The information you have given is enough, you don't have to upload anything.

      If you are unsure about the Master socket, look here-
