      Upload faster than download??

      Hi all,

      Im new around here, although i've visited many times to find information.

      I have recently moved in with my inlaws who have Sky broadband.

      As a Sky BB user at my previous house I was a satisfied customer with a 9 meg download and a 512 (ish) upload.

      Here at my in laws their upload speed is actually higher than their download!
      Is this normal?

      Heres a picture of their router status page:



      Is this just something we have to live with?

      Any advice would be gratefully received.

      Cheers

      Martin

      Thanks DSLDude

      The master socket is in the main bedroom (downstairs)
      Seems the father inlaw has built wardrobes in front of it!

      Oh well, looks like thats that!

      Thanks anyway

      Is that normal or test socket? Either way you are capped but we need a set from the main/ test socket for comparison if these aren't them.

      Hi Paul

      As I said above I cant get to the main or test socket as its behind a built in wardrobe.

      Why would there be a cap on the line?

      Thanks

      Why would there be a cap on the line?
      Probably due to interference from the extension. You could probably get around 6 Mbs from the Test socket, but if you can't get there, have a look inside the extension and if there is a wire on terminal 3 pull it off and tuck it out of the way. This is the ring wire which is not required with filters. Also make sure there are filters on al the sockets in use.

      When you have done that call Sky and ask the to lift the cap on your line.

      Thanks isitme

      Ive taken the bell wire out and swapped filters for another i had.

      Now the stats look as follows:




      I'll get onto sky asap but in the meantime what do these stats say as opposed to the last ones i posted?
      Any better?

      Cheers

      Probably about 1+Mb improvement. You should now get about 4+mb.
