RIN network issues??

I have been on the RIN trial for ages at the min, but tonight have experiences terrible speeds. I am using a wireless client, as the wired PC is not available, and initially thought it was the wireless connection, as the weather is bad around here. I checked my profiles, but the BT speedtester refused to continue saying my IP address is not recognised (never done this before on RIN!!), also router has been constant in its syncs. Out of curiosity, I reverted to my normal Plus connection, and speeds increased dramatically, to a smooth 4.5meg from a stuttery 1.2meg on RIN. Just wondered if there was was issue, or it it just ine of those things?Huh

Strange, I haven't noticed any problems on RIN over the last few days. Are they at specific times or not?

One of the usergroup is having problems as well, when they switch back to the PN network all is fine so something is up.

RIN network issues??

everything turned to poo last night actually, on both RIN and Plus network. Put it down to the weather, really. Tried resyncing and everything to no avail. Switched off the router, and turned back on this morning, and things much better, still on RIN at the min, getting around 4meg on speedtests for a 4.5meg profile (wireless). Actually, got the wired system up and running last night, and speeds were actually worse via an ethernet connection!, even with differnet DNS servers and other stuff. Whats up on the RIN?Huh

Not sure in honesty. I have raised with the relevant people to raise with BT to see if this is part of a generic issue.

I'm going to go and have a look at their TBB forum to see if it gives away any clues.

TBH, I am back on the Plus network, and the same things. Browsings fine, but speedtests are laggy. Bt speedtest gave me 3800 for a 4500 profile. As I am back on plus, presume I may be on a congested gateway?

That would be a possibility, yes.

When Kitz was testing last night, she was getting throughput of 7Mbps on plusdsl.net, whereas 500-2000Kbps on RIN with some really screwy routing.

Hmmm sounds like an issue with the RIN network. Using a wired connection to the router, speeds are fine on the Plus Network today. On thn-ag3, which says I am on a LLU and BT gateway. Didnt know these were here!! Whats thn-ag3 like at the min, although my exchange is again at red, which may have something to do with it. James have you any idea when BT are going to get around to sorting their exchanges, they jump from red to green, and back etc frequently, or are we being forced to wait for 21CN?

Hi there,

No idea on exchange upgrades I'm afraid.

THN-AG3 is our new Gateway, which is currently being use to serve both BT and Tiscali connections. That shouldn't be a cause for concern and is only a temporary measure.
