      Slow Connection Speed

      Over the last few weeks the speed of my internet connection has slowed dramatically. I have just ran s speed test with the following results:
      Speed down: 0.1M
      Speed up: 0.3M
      This should be 2M.
      I have also tried running TCP Optimiser with no increase in speed, any suggestions?

      Re: Slow Connection Speed

      a few things first, could you post your router stats, confirm if wired or wireless and advise on where you plug the router in (Extention / master socket / test socket )

      Re: Slow Connection Speed

      looks like you may have been capped, one way to check would be to do a set of comarison stats from your "test" socket (see first link in my sig)
      once you have posted back we can move on from there

      Your cap (if you have been) would more than likely be down to the extention you are using, have a look in the cabling and faceplate forum for tips on how to improve your internal wiring
