Hi there, I'm just wondering if I have some settings wrong, my BB has gone from adsl to adsl2 and my speed from around 4mb to now nearly 9mb but I notice no difference, my time on the PC I mainly use for on line gaming and I see no improvement there or when im normally browsing web sites, I swear my net worked faster when I had an ip profile of 7150 and a sync speed of 8100, I don't know a lot about computers so is there maybe something I'm doing wrong?
can your run btspeedtester and post the results please
If you post the ADSL stats from your router/hub and the results from the BT speedtester web site then someone will probably be able to shed some light on it for you.
I didnt realise im logged into my Dads forum acc here lol, you gave him some help the weekend imjolly, he was very impressed, anyway i may as well stay on his now but here is mt speed test and router stats.
Test1 comprises of two tests
1. Best Effort Test: -provides background information.
|0 Kbps||21000 Kbps|
Max Achievable Speed
during the test was - 8279 Kbps
For your connection, the acceptable
range of speeds is 4000-21000
Your DSL Connection Rate
:12188 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 612 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for
your line is - 10000 Kbps
Test: -provides background information.
flattery will get you everywhere lol
you have a 12mb connection with the correct 10000 profile anf throughput/download looks fine
lol, well he was. yep i agree, it all looks great and i dont have any probs with it apart from the odd dropped connection but i expected to at least see a difference in spped from the increase.
run the speedtester again a few times during the evening to see if there is a contention issue at your exchange but barring that you have a good connection and it seems to be working as fast as it should.
Web browsing will probably not improve much with speed above a certain point unless the site is very graphic or video intensive so you will not see much difference there and games sites may depend on their connectivity and routing more then siiply just your speed.
you should see some increase in speed particularly if you downloading on usenet which would give max speed. my guess would be old profile download max about 890 but new profile about 1200
ok guys, thank you both very much, thats put my mind at rest at least, i thought id got something clicked or checked that was holding it back
