Got to be worth a try. I'll do so and report the results.

Did you disable QOS too?

I'll do it at the same time.
Any other pointers while I'm logging into the thing?

That was it I think. I actually converted it to a router and put the HH3 back in it's box...

Lets see
In reply to a post by BatBoy:
I now have got a modem/router which is:

handling the pppoe session,
the firewall is off,
QOS is off,
UPNP is on,
TR069 is off,
logging is on,
DHCP is handing out addresses,
and both lan ports are in use.
The firewall is back on using custom settings, once I discovered the GUI was available across the Internet blush

Well it's either a coincidence, or disabling VLAN301 and QOS seemed to do the trick...

Speedtest.net result.

TBB result (still a little low on download, and about half the upload, but that's fairly common these days)...
My Broadband Speed Test

Still; early days yet!

Something has happened and I know Enta have pushed out a fix.

My speeds have definitely gone up.

According to the BT speed test my profile on the 80/20 service is 64.42/20

I am actually achieving 48/12.96 At the time of day when the family tariff has priority.

I have not hacked the modem so have no idea what all the critical figures are but can anyone hazard a guess as to whether or not it should do better i.e. nearer the 64.4 mark.

I appreciate it may be just that the BT tester is overloaded as speedtest.net shows 58.3/11.64

Thanks in anticipation.

Just wondered if you were still having these same problems or if this seemed to completely resolve the issue?

I have BT Infinity 80/20 and have been really frustrated with very slow downloads on evenings and weekends. My Sky Anytime+ downloads on Sky HD box are also really slow too although interestingly BBC iPlayer isn't too bad.

I tried downloading the thinkbroadband test files using the download manager application as per your previous posts and this seemed to suddenly utilise close to my full 76mbps connection. But single threaded they are much much slower again as per what you seemed to be getting.

Would love to know if there is any way to get round this!

Nope; still having problems with single thread downloads.
Typically getting around 11Mbps (even at gone midnight) on single thread downloads of the TBB test files.
TBBmeter is giving similar results (even in multi-thread mode - the only way I can max out my connection is using Usenet or a download manager).
Speedtest.net (and the flash based speedtesters) are giving results similar to my line speed (around 77Mbps down / 17Mbps up), TBB speedtester is giving less than 40Mbps down and only around 6Mbps up.

So, once again, either BT seem to be throttling single thread downloads or something's awry with TBB tools or their links to BT (or BT are throttling the TBB speedtester protocol/port).

Quite prepared to be 'shot down in flames' but could the single thread download issue not simply be due to the rate that the source can serve the data?

We're told the TBB servers are more than capable of serving out speedtest data in excess of 100Mbps and the same for the test files.
I'm not sure of the effects if enough of us were trying speedtests or download files at the same time.
