as we have both already said your IP is set by your current connection speed when your connection speed increases your IP Profile will increase with it
Also do not restart your hub before running the speedtest it is not nessasary the reset of the hub only applies to infinity users
ok, so how long does it take for my connection to reach its maximum speed?
just been on the phone for 80m 12s to BT only to finally be cut off lol
but i have been able to reduce the cost of my broadband from £28.35 to £16.65, i will have to phone them later just to make sure it's went through.
going to make a coffee and have a read of those links lol 🙂
that was well worth the phone call even after adding line rental still good deal for a year
after coffee can you please post updated router stats including errors
aye i'm quite happy about that, canny wait to till the wife lol
now need to try and maintain a stbale connection 24/7 with no resets and if you can get to 3+ days conenction and stats look ok then mods may be able to help reset noise margin back to 6db which will give a speed increase hopefully back to 8mb.
Looking at stats I would have expected upstream to have come back to 448 but your output power is lower than I would expect. still stable line first
well this is interesting, do these results look better and more like what they should be? 🙂
think i need to learn a wee bit more about what the noise margin etc means and how it affects the connection.
Download speedachieved during the test was - 4.25 Mbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 0.6 Mbps-7.15 Mbps.
Your DSL Connection Rate :8.13 Mbps(DOWN-STREAM), 0.45 Mbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for your line is - 4.5 Mbps
that looks more like max conenction speed and upstream now 448 - noise margin better as well
profile is low as based on previous speed but it will catch up to 7.15mb
your attenuation has gone from 28 to 4.7 - you are almost on top of the exchange
what did you change?
lol i took the 10m cable out of the equation, its been ok for years! but there must be something up with it now i'm thinking, i'll need to get another one and take it from there.
gawd feel a bit daft now lol
think i might give the wifi a try for gaming etc and keep the router downstairs for the moment.
as I said at the start I would go for screened rj11 cable for a good conenction as I think wifi may not not be very good especially as you have now got 8mb conenction albeit profile still to catch up but far less errors as well
so win win - cheaper broadband and faster conenction speed with better conenction
yup just giving the wifi a try just now i'm only getting a 80% signal from the router downstairs, also looks like my pings are a little higher.
would i be any better keeping the router downstair and running an ethernet cable upstairs or just use a rj11 cable as you've suggested and have the router upstairs, would it matter either way?
much thx for all the help and time/input from u guys, but think the problem is finally solved just a matter of time now.
deff a win win situation 🙂
