      Sync @ 8Mb dowloading @ 0.5Mb!

      Just migrated to Sky from Freedom2Surf. Was on their LLU service as provided by easynet. I used to synch at around 7 to 7.5Mb and often could get around 5 to 6 Mb downloads even at peak time.

      Now on Sky Max I have seen my router synching as high ad 9Mb (though stats from my old router suggested I might have gotten around 12Mb on ADSL2+) but more usually around 8Mb. However download speeds are appalling just down a test on thinkbroadband and managed only 0.5Mb.

      here are my detailed stats (have not been using the line heavily for the last few days.

      You could try this until someone comes to help

      Re: Sync @ 8Mb dowloading @ 0.5Mb!

      I had Sky installed yesterday and had the same problem. The problem was cured by checking a microfilter had been installed on all the phone points (they hadn't) and resetting the router.

      Sorry if you have tried these already! My initial feelings are that I miss NTLs broadband!

      Tried this yesterday Seemed to help then but speed gone downhill since then.

      I am using a filtered master socket and have been for a year. The only change is going from a Speedtouch router to this Sky/Netgear thingy. Given I was with Easynet via Freedom2Surf and i am still with Easynet via Sky the only other change is going from ADSL to ADSL2+.

      You are getting a fairly high number of CRC errors ( considering that mine is 0 for the same period of time ).

      I thought some of the numbers related to errors seemed quite high. Don't know why as using my old router had a very steady connection with quite good noise figures.
