      ok, where the hell did my speed go...?

      ok, my turn. got sky max on tuesday just gone, everything worked fine, was gettin a great speed (10meg, ish). then woke up wednesday and all of a sudden my speeds have dropped to well below what i was gettin with BT and wont seem to improve, if anything, they get worse. At one point, while doin a speedtest.net test, my download speed was read at 4kb/s. yup, FOUR! what the hell is goin on, and where did my other 8meg go?

      Heres my stats, as im sure u'll ask. Any help would be appreciated

      Re: ok, where the hell did my speed go...?

      From what I can see, you are connected at 15Mbits per second.
      Maybe reboot the router and try the speedtest again. (Make sure there are no downloads happening when you do the speedtest.)
      If you are still getting slow speeds shown by speedtest, but your router still shows a connection of 15323 Kbps (or there abouts) then I think a call to Customer Services is in order.

      Use wired exstension if pos ! (not tel cable, use cat5)
      If not then you may just have to get used to changing speeds as interference will affect your signal
      (also there is a set of plugs you can buy which tranfer the signal through your mains, have a look at PC world website, ones i use are called Devolo, a bit pricey but well worth it)

      Here are some stats I found re: WiFi equipment true speeds V advertised speeds

      * 11a 23/54Mbits/sec
      * 11b 4/11Mbits/sec
      * 11g 20/54Mbits/sec
      * Turbo g 30/125 Mbits/sec
      * Mimo g 33/125Mbits/sec
      * draft 11n 120/300Mbits/sec

      The first number is the actual speed IN IDEAL conditions.
      The second number is the advertised speed.
      So as you can see if your line is capable of supporting some 15Mbps then you may be bottlenecking your connection between your laptop and the router through the use of WiFi.
      Try using a wired connection to test the differenc between the two connection types.
      Mac.

      wired > wireless ANY day - regardless of what adverts say. it's only good as a convenient connection but is crap in practice...go wired if you can and you'll get near the full 16MB...
