      DL & Linespeed drop,slow pages too

      Hi

      Cut a long story short I've been with sky for a week now and my line has been manually upped because Sky admitted DLM not working.they up'd it from 4 to 16/18,stats say around 16 but on the second day I was able to DL at just under 2 meg from rapidshare now I can get .8 at best,also my pages load much slower than with BTs 6 Meg and considerably slower than day 2 with Sky.

      Stats below and any help greatly appreciated.

      Are you using wireless? is it only Rapidshare that is a problem?

      Post your stats from your TEST socket also, you should get nearer the 20mb mark with your attenuation. (How to test your ADSL in the Master Socket)

      Ethernet to PC and yes it does seem to be Rapidshare but was fine 3 days ago with almost 2 mb download speed now just 0.8, having said that itunes comes down at 1.5 meg so it seems to be throttling rapidshare files....pages still very slow BBC - Homepage takes 4 seconds...

      Thanks, and at the test socket almost identical readings...

      Try starting in Safe Mode with Networking, see if your loading time for BBC improves. I would not recommend going near Rapidshare in Safe mode. There is a current thread on problems with RS, your problem could be connected.

      Funny how people jump in and blame Sky when Rapidshare gives problems, no one considers that the throttling may be being done at the other end.
