      The slowest sky mid speed in the world???

      Hi all, just came back from my mates house after checking his slow broadband. He is on the upto 8mg package, but his downstream is only 125kbs!!! I made sure the wireless was setup and filters on all his sockets, plus tcp optimizer. Any ideas?

      LOL,

      first i would suggest doing a wired test to rule out problems with line(internal or external), if speeds are much better then you know it is only the wireless which has a problem

      you could try moving the router/ariel position and see if that helps, also keep router away from dect phones / power cables a these will both degrade the signal

      also have a look at the wireless forum for other tips

      Yes - give more info e.g. what is the router sync speed. attenuation and noise margin.

      Probably a poor wireless quality (not necessarily signal strength) problem but there may be other issues too.

      I had the same problem, turned out it was noise on my line causing it. I get a nice 4meg speed through the test socket, but 1meg (at most) from the normal socket
