Speed drop

What do you mean by connection speed? Sync speed? Result of a speed test? Stable rate?

Different routers and modems have different sensitivites, and one router may be able to sync at a higher rate than another. I changed from Safecom to Netgear and my sync speed went up from 4 to 6Mb.

Thanks for the reply Geoff, this is the speed showing in the local area connection dialogue box. I've just carried out a Plusnet speed test & it's showing 2.3Mb & considering I'm only on an up to 2Mb service & haven't opted for max dsl I'm a tad confused :? , perhaps I should be happy I can connect at all considering the problems I've had setting up the Belkin Sad
