and now....

 

1. Best Effort Test:  -provides background information. Download speedachieved during the test was - 0.53 Mbps For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 4 Mbps-21 Mbps. IP Profile for your line is - 13.47 Mbps

2. Upstream Test:  -provides background information.

Upload speed achieved during the test was - 0.88Mbps Additional Information: Upstream Rate IP profile on your line is - 0.83 Mbps

The test result has indicated that you should contact your ISP for further assistance.

 

Been like this for an hour or so....

Dammit. No sooner than i post that and re-run the test....

And then this evening

 

ADSL line status
Connection Information
Line state Connected

Download speed achieved during the test was - 5.94 Mbps

IP Profile for your line is - 13 Mbps

Upstream Rate IP profile on your line is - 0.83 Mbps

 

The speed is up and down all the time. Anyway to stabilise my speed? The Noise Margin doesn't appear to go below 3.0 any more but the speed fluctuates wildly. One minute downloads are very fast, the next very slow. It can stick as fast or slow for long periods of time or bounce from one to the other and back in 5 minutes....

I assume that all these tests were done using a direct Ethernet cable to a computer, who`s wireless adapter was turned off or disabled?

None are direct Ethernet. Can't be done here. Has to be wireless. So the wifi is to blame? Didn't think of that before...... 😞 However it shows nothing less than 36 Mbps at any time.

Before the repairs I had a very stable and reliable 10mbps connection. After the repair I get 12 mbps but its up and down and all over the place. Some days worse than others. I thought it had stablised recently but today has shown I was wrong.

That explains it. All speed tests have to be done using a direct cable connection, or via powerline adapters.

Wireless will vary all of the time, due to interference and propagation. You may be able to find a better wireless channel with less interference, but if you live in a built up area, its going to be almost impossible.

 

There are some solutions here

Wireless problems and things you can try, to resolve them

 

Network connection problems and possible solutions

 

Any speed checks using wireless, are going to be invalid.

Re: Banded Profile after BT repair

Well I've been toying with upgrading to an n adapter. However where we are we have the only router on the list of available routers. Both our neighbours are "broadband free" And I've been checking for overlapping signals with my iPhone whilst walking the dog and noone is close enough with a router to interfere. 

 

Seems funny it was stable before the repair and the only change is a new line from the telegraph pole to the house. Now its lost its stability. 

 

I'll mess with the adapter and maybe try a new one. 

 

I'll have to accept your explanation.

It does no harm to try a different wireless channel, as its not just wireless routers that use that frequency band.

I am sure that other people on here will give you the same answer regarding Wifi.

Re: Banded Profile after BT repair

Right.

 

Found the Home Network page in the Hub settings and looked at my PCs wireless connection. It kept bouncing between 8,11, 36 and 54 Mbps which would explain the problems. Its an old G USB adapter and i've been meaning to upgrade to an N adapter for ages. Looking at the adapter i'm not convinced the USB connector on the end isn't loose/damaged and i don't think it makes good contact into the stand that it came with. I replaced the stand with a generic USB extension cable (~1meter) and it now reports 48-54 Mbps. I've ordered a new USB N Adapter anyway and i'll see how that goes too.

 

Didn't even think of looking at this before......
