How to use all my internet speed!


[link to this post]
 
I seem to be unable to take advantage of my internet speed, when i begin a download it begins at about 1mb/s but then it suddenly goes down to and stays at 200Kb/s. I was told this was due to the fact i had a B and G wireless adapter, but even wired i get the same thing, to be sure i bought an N tech Wireless Adapter, same speeds again.

What do I need to do to get the full speed of my broadband??

thanks.

Is that Virgin Media cable, or Virgin Media ADSLx? What you describe sounds like ADSLx but I can't see XL as an option for that.

The stats we want from the router are the connection speed, attenuation and noise margin, but if you are on cable you won't be able to get them. If on ADSLx, then try http://192.169.0.1 and look for things like Status and Statistics.

The username could be admin and the password password.
