Hi guys

Been with Sky for 5 days now and I'd just like to get your input on how my connection is doing.

Tests from speedtest.net give me speeds of

5000-6500 down
650-750 up

However when downloading from my newsgroup server I regularly get speeds of 8000+ (according to DU Meter)

Not unhappy with this as it's better than the 4mb connection I was on with cable just like to know if I could get more


My stats are

Connection Speed 8096 768 Never seems to change
Attenuation 46 30 Never seems to change
Noise Margin 8.4 14 Does vary slightly

and detailed router info is

Sorry for the long post but hopefully all the info you will need should be there
