      Same Story-Connect@13mbs download@681kbs

      Hi Guys
      Ive been lurking for the last couple of days and sorting out my connection with the great help and advice from here, but I seem to be sufering the same problems as fellow members.

      Im getting disconnections, slow download speeds, and sometimes no connection at all.

      Would someone a lot smarter then me look at my stats and give me their opinion.

      What happens is the same as this thread over in the Tech discussion:
      http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/techn...ine-drops.html

      Ive turned Upnp off, ran TCP Optimiser, I have yet to try the master socket.
      The router is on a socket downstairs and Im currently on wireless until I can sort out a cable or afford a few Homeplugs.

      Ive only been on since Monday and I know its early days but the D/L speed sucks

      At a guess I would say its down to your wireless connection.

      What type of wireless adapter are you using. Is it a laptop, can you get closer to the router? Whats the signal strength showing for the wireless connection? Is the wireless adapter close to anything that may be interfering?

      Its a PC With a Belkin 54mps+ pci card, signal strength has been excellent (54mps) but last night dropped to (11mps) but still ok for streamin video to my xbmc.

      The router is in a socket in the front room, the main socket is in the hallway and if I put the router there Im sure it would be destoyed by the kids. The socket its in was put in with the house build (7 years ago) but I suppose its just a normal extension.

      Re: Same Story-Connect@13mbs download@681kbs

      I would guess that it is the wireless connection also. The wireless connections are not very stable. I myself dont think a wireless connection should be used as a permanent connection (For example I would not use a wireless connection for a desktop computer that does not move). I would only use wireless for a laptop that I use in different locations. Can you try wiring up to the router to see if the wireless is definately the cause?

      Re: Same Story-Connect@13mbs download@681kbs

      mine done this, in the end i found the wireless network card was broke and did not work correctly even though it said i did.

      mine is currently connected at 100% but via wirless (Netgear 311 54 meg card) it is only downloading at between 3-5 meg.

      via laptop i get full 13meg downstream speed.

      If i move my pc and router around i get still 100% connection but alot faster speed....

      cheers for that, I found I didn't have a piece of cat5 long enough, so Im gonna buy some tomorrow.

      If the cat5 makes a big difference then I'll buy a couple of sockets and go throught the wall up to the bedroom and back in to a socket.

      If you decide to get cat5/6 sockets you need to make sure the cat5 cable is solid core and not stranded otherwise you will not be able to connect the cable to the IDC terminals

      The wireless on the netgear router is completely useless. They should supply the product as 'Wireless Broadband' because its about as stable as an elephant balancing on a pin head.

      If you have an existing wireless router that has a solid wireless capability i'd suggest you look to the Technical forums about finding out your ADSL username and password.

      I've gone from 1-2meg DL's on the sky router to 5.5mb wireless with my Linksys (6mb from ethernet). Only problem I have is my network does not auto reconnect if the line drops for some reason, but all I need to do is go into the interface and click 'Connect' so no real hardship. Better than manual reboots that are pretty much mandatory for the Netgear Sky Router.

      With a 15m Cat5 cable run up the stairs


      on my wireless connection:


      On the Namesco BroadbandMax ADSL Broadband Bandwidth speedtest | Test your ADSL Broadband connection speed site:
      Date of Speed Test: 2007-02-10 14:42:38
      Download Speed: 9970 kbps (1246.3 KB/sec transfer rate)
      Upload Speed: 509 kbps (63.6 KB/sec transfer rate)

      Go Figure.... I'll see what happens when its been left on for a while.
