that's the ones
the problem is all the disconnections/resets as you make changes has increased your noise margin to 14.4db instead of the normal 6db which has resulted in your conenction speed dropping down to 9.5mb hence the slower download speed on btspeedtester
you now need to leave it conencted with no more resets and noise margin should drop back to 6db. if you get 3+ days connection time then repost these stats again and we can get mods to reset noise margin back to 6db which will increase your conenction speed bacl to 'normal' for you
sorry have to keep refreshing page....think i posted right info now...posts crossed
with your attenuation I would expect a connection speed of 20+ mb probably nearer 24mb but need stable conenction to get noise margin down
Really??? Ok will leave it this now.Not reset the router or do a speed test until monday and report back to you....really appreciate your time helping me, I am trying not to be too thick.
not a problem - hope it helps make things clearer - now you can converse with techie next door
do you think it is the cable that is faulty and will have to an engineer out or can it be fixed without
connection has not dropped for about an hour
no it will be ok
all the changing channel and trying sockets has raised the noise margin automaticlly. now just need to maintain a stable conenction 24/7 for 3+ days and if noise margin not reducing then repost the stats and mods will help reduce noise margin which will increase your connection speed whih in turn will increase your download speed which will then improve the connection on your devices
Think I have understood....desperate need of a strong cuppa now ...thaks again Sage, absolute 5 star help really appreciated...
just repost stats when conenction time gets 3+ days - there is always someone around to help you
