Connection Speed Check

For the past few days, whenever I carry out a speed check via the connection settings/bandwidth speed test, it either registers 0 (this within constant retries) or more than 4 Mbps - I am on a 2 Meg set up. I also cannot get a result from the ADSLGUIDE site speed check.
Any suggestions or comments will be appreciated. Thanks

Connection Speed Check

Have you installed any new routers or firewalls recently?

Connection Speed Check

Having experimented a little , it does seem to be something to do with with My Sunbelt/Kerio Firewall. The Firewall is not blocking access as far as I can see, but if I temporarily disable the F/W, Then I get results. Must be a setting that I cannot trace - any ideas?

Connection Speed Check

it is a known issue with some routers and firewalls, most speed checks will have a disclaimer saying that you may get inaccurate results if your behind a router or firewall. I can't remember the reason for this, however I am sure someone will be able to answer!
