Hi guys and thanks for the replies...
@MHC & XRaySpeX, the links you provided doesnt work (MHC's link shows 404 error and XRay's one shows nothing in the ping result box)
@G3UZF, no... this is not the maximum speed of my line. In Virgin's site, I see their speed checker in my place says that they can provide me with 6 - 8 mbps and in BT's it said 4 - 6 mbps.
The master socket should work if I connect the phone alone to it or even with both phone and router (not through the test socket), right?
I have uploaded some images for you guys of my things, each has itself explained by the file title. I have archived them all in 1 .rar file. Just to note, if you see the image of the socket thingy that my filter (phone + broadband) is connected to, you will see that it has 1 other socket beside it. I also have to say that i've tried the right socket once and i've got no dial tone on that but both my phone and broadband are working (except the slowness) on the left socket.
The link to the .rar file that includes all images: http://meshign.ir/bb.rar
Also, my master socket is in the other room beside my computer's room, not near the house entrance door. If you see the master socket image, you'll see that the phone cable comes into the house from there and the socket has a test socket beneath it if I unscrew it (that's how I've identified that it's the master socket in the house)
I've also included an image of my router status + statistics that may help... I couldn't find anywhere else in my router settings page that shows other status of the connection.
And here are the BT speed tester results:
"Download speedachieved during the test was - 1857 Kbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 800-2000 Kbps.
Your DSL Connection Rate :2315 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 743 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for your line is - 2042 Kbps"
I had so many problems with BT (their messing ups), I had my phone line re-numbered and they still think I've got my broadband and phone line connected on the old number whereas the old number doesn't even exist anymore. Can that be the cause of the slowness or if you don't connect the broadband to the master socket it will cause this much slowness too?
Please tell me if you guys need to know anything else...
