Re: BT old wiring HALVES my Orange Broadband speed!

In reply to a post by shrimper1:
The only alternative I have to hand is an old LINKSYS WAG54GS. However, I have asked Orange for a new router, and I think they will come across.
Well, you have nothing to lose by trying it, and everything to gain.

OP on ADSL2+ Capped @ 8 Meg, then Muffed Wiring


[re: BatBoy] [link to this post]
 
Originally, when OP 1st came to TBB, he posted router stats that were exact figures for an ADSL2+ line capped at 8 Meg: http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/unhappiness/t/39669...

Then he disconnected some wires from his non-standard master socket: http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/unhappiness/t/39717... and his stats worsened to similar to you see here.

As he seems not to have a modern NTE5 master socket, he must have played around with the wiring behind the socket and could have easily messed it up.

He then went on to follow a red herring that his bandwidth is divided between his phone sockets, even if not used for BB grin, and removed 2nd socket in the vain hope of harnessing the phantom bandwidth consumed by the 2nd socket.

So, is he now capped to 4Mb?

What mechanism could be responsible for the capping?

Hi shrimper1, if you had two NTE5 boxes the BT engineer did right to remove the one. Your router stats are better than mine are, so you should get higher speeds. Maybe Orange has capped your line like my line is capped at 16384 kbps and I should be on 20 Meg.

What really matters are your router stats. Last time you posted them it showed you were capped at 4Mb. Can you post them again please? The speedtests are not useful at this stage

How many times have you been told that your router stats are paramount? Until you can get those good, repetitive speed tests are useless. frown

But if you plug an Apple Mac into both sockets you will get full speed again. You see you have a Pear of sockets and you need to take bite from each in turn on cue.
