Another one here with really bad connection!

Hey all, I think this is mostly due to the recent weather conditions, and power outtages in the south east. Second night in a row now. speed tests from http://www.speedtest.bbmax.co.uk/ indicate a speed of 400-500Kbps download, 60-80KBps upload.

And the BT speed test reads the following:
Test1 comprises of Best Effort Test: -provides background information.
IP profile for your line is - 5500 kbps
DSL connection rate: 448 kbps(UP-STREAM) 6816 kbps(DOWN-STREAM)
Actual IP throughput achieved during the test was - 1678 kbps



Websites take an age to load! My current router is a Netgear D834g, also tried my old Belkin. My systems include Mac, Windows, Linux, and Irix, ton of different browsers.

Any reports of BT having problems? I will be calling them in the morning to check for "Blips" and clear the line etc etc

Hi,

You can check the exchange status here:

http://usertools.plus.net/exchanges

To see if there are any known problems. The VP Capacity will show if they are aware if there are any known speed problems and the service outage to see if there have been any major problems recently.

Seems my local exchange is in the "green".

Todays speed test was on average 120k down, and 30 up.

could you guys please check my line?


Also World of Warcraft is the only thing that functions, downloads, browsing, and chat clients are virtually dead.
