my download speed; wanna help?


[link to this post]
 
can anyone help with my sky broadband?
i'm use Sky Broadband Unlimited.
I apparently get a downstream of 4095Kb.
I'm new to computers so i might be missing something obvious.
When i use the speed checker on this site it says i get 3.2 megabyte.
When i actually download something the most i get is about 450kb.
Why is this?
If anyone needs any info just ask smile

Post your router stats.

Don't you mean that the TBB speadtester says 3.2 Megabits ps?

And are you sure that when downloading, it doesn't say 450 K Bytes ps? Cuz that's about right for 3.2 Mbps!

You haven't answered my Qs. Post copies of the actual readings that you quoted to show you haven't mixed up your units as many do here.

You line is capable of 8 Meg sync. Have you just joined Sky? Cuz they start you off on 4 Meg.

Your throughput is correct for your Sync (usually about 83% of Sync) assuming you are measuring your downloads in Bytes. However your Sync is running about 50% of expected. See here: http://www.kitz.co.uk/adsl/max_speed_calc.php

You asked me how I knew what your line should do, No router is required! Just feed your Downstream Attenuation of 42 into that page.
