      and heres my statson that netgar page thing..


      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 2208 kbps 416 kbps
      Line Attenuation 46.0 db 30.0 db
      Noise Margin 26.2 db 13.0 db

      No that's not good. Your attenuaion and noise margin suggest you should get 3 times that speed.

      Try the master test socket and also post your full router stats using mognuts util (see my sig for both).

      Re: SPEED TEST NEWBIE - My connection good?

      Moving to MAX is not probably going to help you with your pings.

      As for your speed, have you tried the test socket?

      http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/view.php?pg=master

      Try that and then post your router stats for us to see.

      It most definately looks like its capped,

      Router Stats';
      Sky Netgear DG834GT utility version 0.4
      "Get Detailed Modem Stats" follow the prompts and post the outcome.
      A good read is; Sky router stats (speed, noise, attenuation) explained
