Speedtest: upload speed reduced with new router.


[link to this post]
 
Fast.co.uk LLU broadband

tbb Speedtest results with fast.co.uk supplied Thomson TG585 v8 router:
Download 11-12Mbits/s
Upload 1Mbit/s

tbb Speedtest results with Draytek Vigor 2820n
Download 11-12Mbits/s
Upload 0.8Mbits/s

As you can see my download speeds have remained the same with the Draytek but upload speed has reduced by 20%

Any ideas?

But what are your Sync Speeds? They are determining factors. They probably changed when you switched routers.

1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU BB => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU BB

Sync speeds

Up: 1181261
Down: 14729846
SNR Margin: 4
Loop Att.: 31

Still same question, why would upload sync speed be reduced when download has remained the same?

Just curious more than anything,

Were the routers wired to the PC during the speedtests?

Yes, exact same configuration for both routers.

Eh? 2 routers involved but only 1 set of stats. Where's the other 1 & which is which?

1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU BB => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU BB

Because they use different chipsets, and its been shown before that different manufacturers of ADSL chipsets cause different effects on the same line. Also goes with the chipset in the exchange DSLAM as well.

My BE line works well using my TG585v7 and I'm getting today 18mbps download sync, with 1.3mbps upload - and I get uptime measured in 10s of days.

If I use my Draytek 2820Vn, then I sometimes see 20mbps download, but 800kbps upload, and its very unstable, and disconnects several times a day.

The TG585v7 uses a Broadcom chip. the Draytek I believe is using Infineon.

James - be* pro - on THFB - sync about 17.2mbps - BQM

Thanks jchamier, that makes sense. Don't have any stability problems with the Draytek and it has a lot of other features (VPN being the one I'm making use of) so I'll stick with it.

Don't have stats for the Thomson, never wrote them down.
