      Speed test sites are not a very good way to measure your throughput.

      Download this 10gb test file and see how long it takes and what your average speed during the download is.

      Delete it afterwards.

      With regards to wifi you can download and install inSSIDer (google it) to find out what channels are free in your area and set your router to one of them.

      About 4m16sec, which gives in the region of 25mbps (I think, although I'd welcome someone checking my math). Guess it depends on what you think a Gigabyte is...

      Edit: I got that horribly wrong. The file I've given you is 1.2gb in size. Let me get the correct file.

      Apologies my bad.

      This is the full 10gb file. Give it a go..

      Make sure you download it via a wired connection.

      2220 seconds to download 10240 MB works out to an average speed of 4.6 MB/s.

      Not too bad I guess.

      What were your speeds like on ADSL?

      Pretty shabby on ADSL. Around 3.5mbps download, <1mbps upload.

      Re: Sky FTTH Trial - router admin ID/password

      Huge improvement in that case.

      Can you see any form of WAN stats on the router. Like the sync speed for example? (using the routers interface)

      Absolutely nothing at all about speed at all on the router as far as I can see. Would be nice to be able to chart performance over a longer period, rather than the hit 'n' miss of speedtests. Any recommendations for a tool?

      I personally use DU meter for my bandwidth performance and logs but the downside is it is paid software. I suppose you could try Net meter (freeware) and see if it's suitable for you.

      Regarding the stats on the routers page what information can you see under WAN on the status page as shown in red in the picture below?
