Slow Individual Connections - How to Improve?


[link to this post]
 
I'm currently staying somewhere with very ropey internet. I get 30Kb/sec at best using the speed test/downloading files, etc, often less.

However, when I test downloading something using multiple connections (like a torrent/from usenet) I can get 350Kb/sec consistently.

Reasonable bandwidth therefore is clearly there, but I can't take advantage of it. Even listening to internet radio is extremely frustrating at present.

I don't have access to the modem unfortunately, but is there anything I can do to improve matters?

I'm using OS X and an iPhone/iPad.

We need your router stats to be able to comment.

If this is all wireless, then it can be very variable. You may need to experiment with wireless channel.

Which ISP?

1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU => 2011: Orange 19 Meg WBC

It is wireless, yes - but wired is just the same. I don't have access to the router and I'm not in the UK so the ISP is what it is unfortunately. I'm staying in a short term rental place.

Could be traffic management systems or things like the TCP setup
