...suddenly last summer...
I have been keeping a log of my download speeds:
Mornings: 8 - 13 mps (I live 400 ms from main city exchange)
Evenings: 0.3 - 0.8 mps (I am surrounded by lots of pubs with free access)
I think it is just pointless to complain to BT..they have underestimated traffic density and need to invest serious money in line capacity. Sometimes my network connection page does not even list my hub as a potential source and I have to manually connect......ah well....
astar27 I have started a new post as this will just cause confusion as you said
in order for the forum members to help please can you post the adsl stats from your router may need to 'show detail' to get all stats (if hub enter 192.168.1.254 in your browser and navigate to adsl or use a-z, if netgear enter 192.168.0.1) and run btspeedtester (MAC users may have problems) bt speedtester and post the results .
are you connected directly via a filter to the NTE5 master or test socket or to somewhere else? Is the master the only phone socket in your home?
Have you tried the quiet line test? - dial 17070 option 2 - should hear nothing - best done with a corded phone. if cordless phone you may hear a 'dull hum' which is normal
Someone may then be able to offer help/assistance/suggestions to your problem
Thanks for your interest, but you are dealing with an ignoramous as far as 'buzzwords' are concerned.
I followed your advice and entered 192..etc and selected the adsl menu (what does adsl mean?).
It then suggested that I reset my router by inserting a pin somewhere since I had no recollection of a password demanded. I remember when I first connected some years back that the speed was extremely slow but a very nice man on the phone went thru some package, got me to change some numbers, and lo and behold it all happened. Hence I am very reluctant to reset to 'default' position. Is there any alternative to this?
Frankly, I am firmly convinced that in the evening in this city center all other flat residents come home from work, turn on the 'tap' and little 'water' comes out. Hence I do all my work in the early hours!
ok then can you run btspeedtester not beta and post the results.
did you try quiet line test? what about the sockets - conencted to master or test ( see diagram in my previous post) - other sockets?
if you enter 192.168.1.254 into your browser and get hub manager then user 'admin' and password should be on the hub unless you have changed it
