      how can i optimise wireless?

      i have connect and would love to take full advantage of the 8mbit speed that they offer... and i know there are a number of factors that affect my spped (distance/line quality) but i would like some ideas of how to receive improved speeds!

      now ive tried the optimiser program and it didnt do anything (actually i dont think i used it correctly ) but when i put my number into the "bt speed checker" it says...

      "our line should be able to have an ADSL broadband service that provides a line rate up to 2Mbps. Our test also indicates that your line should be able to support a potential ADSL Max broadband line rate of 6.5Mbps up to 8Mbps."


      any ideas on how to boost my connection speed?

      thank you!

      Why you went to the TCP optimiser first is a bit odd.
      Read this: http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/speed...explained.html

      Its always better to do the simple things first.

      You've headed your post "how can I optimise wireless ?"

      Have a look at the tutorials section which will help you optimise wireless.

      A poor wireless connection will handicap your speeds and if following the usual tips on wireless doesn't help you might consider using a direct ethernet connection between the computer and the router.
