Home Connection


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

I know very little about this kind of stuff and don't know if i've posted in the right section; sorry if I have. I'd be very grateful for a bit of enlightenment.

I believe i'm in a slow spot where I only have a 2mb line. I'm with eclipse internet and can only reach 302 kb/s download speed using Speedtest. Is this a normal speed for my line or could i get more from another ISP as my downloads are very slow.

Thanks.

Get your router line stats?

What exchange?

Thanks for the reply, am i supposed to put the link provided in my web browser? I have a Belkin G+ MIMO (F5D9630) and it says "Navigate your browser to:

http://192.168.2.1/"

I get this message:

Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to 192.168.2.1

Press 'start' and R at the same time, type CMD in the run box that opens.
In the black screen that then opens, type ipconfig and hit enter.
In the data that returns the ip address shown for default gateway is the address you want to put in the browser.

Yes! Best way is to click on the link on that page I gave you.

Have you changed your router's IP? If so, you need to change the address to put in your browser.

Down/Up

Speeds: 3776/448
Noise margins: 8.3/20
Power levels: 12.4/19.6
Attenuations: 40/21

I suggest you remove that link as the rest is irrelevant and has info that a hacker could use to get at you. In particular your IP address and router MAC number.

Have I read all the blurry figures correctly?
Edit - downstream margin changed to the figure given by the OP

Yes!

What does http://www.speedtester.bt.com/ (ADSL & FTTC Diagnostics) give? Particularly IP Profile?

Cheers didn't realise.

That 6.3 should be 8.3.

Does this information reveal any issues?

3000?

Lousy sync is the problem.
