Billion 7800n setup... seems slow


[link to this post]
 
Hi
I live on the Wirral - exchange LVCAL (Samknows - You are approximately 915 metres from the exchange.)
I have a Billion 7800n router:
Parameters
DSP Firmware Version A2pB025f.d22k
DMT Status No Defect
Operational Mode G.DMT
Upstream 448
Downstream 8128
SNR Margin(Upstream) 22.0
SNR Margin(Downstream) 13.6
Line Attenuation(Upstream) 13.5
Line Attenuation(Downstream) 22.0

Reading around - everyone seems to get better speeds than me - what am I dsoing wrong?
I am on LCHOST (Entanet I think) connection - very very stable, great support - but seems slowww.

Best d/l I have ever seen was tested at 3Mbps

Can anyone offer advice?

What does the BT speedtest http://speedtest.btcentralplus.com/ say?

Run it from a wired connection not wireless.

Download speedachieved during the test was - 5717 Kbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 600-7150 Kbps.
Additional Information:
Your DSL Connection Rate :8128 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for your line is - 7150 Kbps

so obviously my speed tests were rubbish frown

How were you connected? Wired, I hope.

It is still a lower than I would have expected, but a lot better than you have seen. It would be worth trying again very early in the morning to see how close you can get.

What do you get from the TBB speedtest? You can run it and it will give a link to your results.

Which ISP are you with? Is it congestion on their networks that is reducing your download?

Which OS? If XP, what MTU and RWIN settings do you have? With Vista and Win7 it is not easy to alter.

Do you have TBB meter installed? If so, run a couple of reasonable downloads and see what they say for speed. Then, take a screenshot of the graph - host the image on photobucket or similar ... The shape of the graph during the download can help point to congestion or a PC issue.

Your synching at the max that ADSLmax |(GDMT) can give you and the BT IP profile reflects that.

Speed tests are not always particulary accurate mind and I find downloading a driver from Nvidea or AMD is a better indicator of speed (especially as the video driver is over 100meg in size)

For a boost in speed moving to a LLU supplier you will see a big speed jump as your attenuation is nice and low and moving to ADSL2+ you will see possibly double what you are getting now.

I have been with Sky and O2 and I really didn't get on well with Sky with their support or their supplied router and now Sky require you to take their phone line as well which may not be for you.

O2 have now changed their packages to the better and you can take just broadband with them withough having to take a phone line and if you have an o2 phone you get a discount.

Not used Be or TalkTalk so I cannot comment on them.

That, to me, suggests serious network congestion.

Late tonight - say 23:30 ish, do that same download and then a BT speedtest and post the image.
