Dont know if this is worth posting but I used the excellent mossywell utility to find out my username and password, then used my old 54g belkin router

Result was a jump from 4308Kb/733Kb (max) on the sky netgear router
to 5608Kb/768Kb on the belkin

so thanks to mossywell!


here are the stats from my sky router - got so fed up with not getting 16meg Max speed hence the swap to belkin to see if it improved

Have no idea if these stats show that i should be getting quicker than 5.6
any comments appreciated
