That's showing around 5, not 2. Where are you getting the 2Mb speeds?

What speeds does a different speedtester show? Such as this one or this one?

Pierre,
BT Speedtester giving higher speed results than other tests is often an indication that your rWin and MTU settings could do with some tweaking.
I'd recommend having a look at the video tutorial which you can find here:

Re: I am on an up to 8 but only get 2

Your link obviously worked, I have been looking around the help files for several week, and always ended up a dead end, never found any links to outside PN, perhaps I should start playing games and find out more, Only one spanner for me on that one, despite having been into computer for 40 plus years.
