Re: Absolute Disgrace

Hi there,
Your current ticket was answered within 14 minutes.  I appreciate the the second reply has yet to arrive, however this was after 11pm, so we have minimal staff in overnight, although you're always welcome to give us a ring so we can do some checks with you over the phone.  I'm sorry that you feel that the replies to your other ticket were taking a long time to come back to you.
I've run a check on your telephone line and I can't see anything that is obviously wrong.  Your connection/synchronisation speeds are very good (because you're so close to the exchange) and there no errors being reported via the test I've run.
Can I ask you to possibly try running a BT Speedtest via http://www.speedtester.bt.com which will allow BT to see the poor speeds that you are receiving so that we're able to raise a fault with them after getting you to do a couple other things.
The problem is extremely unlikely to be at our end, but from anywhere from your router to the BT exchange itself (which is normal for most faults).  Can you try running that test, trying to borrow your brothers router if at all possible and to ensure that your router is connecting directly to your master socket via a microfilter.  If you could possibly connect to the test socket behind the master faceplate, that would be ideal as you get the best possible signal to your house from there.
Let me know how you get on and I'll do whatever I can to help.

Re: Absolute Disgrace

I be back in touch
Regards
Andrew

Re: Absolute Disgrace

Thanks Andrew,
What sort of speeds do you get from http://www.mybroadbandspeed.co.uk ?
That's just a normal HTTP speedtest.

Re: Absolute Disgrace

download 6117kb
upload 380 kb
They do seem fast for that but why is it slow at downloading some software such as itune 8 have you tried that for me?  Also why does my gaming get disconnected?  I never had these problem at all before just recently..
I have done that bt tester the first stage but I could not do the further test as when i changed the username on my router to do the further test it would not connect to the net.. And yes I had the password blank

Re: Absolute Disgrace

Thanks Andrew,
That shows your general web speeds to be okay.  iTunes is classed as a "download server" so speeds are limited during different times of the day.  I wouldn't expect them to be that slow though.  I've asked our Products Team to have a look and see if there is anything that they can do to improve the speeds that you have been seeing.
What games are you playing that seem to be dropping out?

Re: Absolute Disgrace

Please do try and sort the download speed out for me and see what they can do for me... Browsing is ok it just download speed i never had this problem before and been able to download quite quickly normally but past couple of weeks been aweful.
I play on COD5 on PS3 quite a few times past few days I been cutted of due to poor network connection and never had this before either..  Is my ISP Package strong enough for this sort of thing?

Re: Absolute Disgrace

Hiya,
Your package should be absolutely fine for playing games like COD5.
It's possible that the traffic isn't being identified as gaming properly, which may be the reason why you're having trouble.  I'll try and find out if that is the case.

Re: Absolute Disgrace

How is your PS3 set up? Wired or wireless and is it in the DMZ on your router or are you using uPnP?

Re: Absolute Disgrace

Yup - COD5 is being prioritised correctly.
Is it possible for you to link your PS3 to your router via a wired ethernet cable?

Re: Absolute Disgrace

Sure - I'm just wondering whether for some reason, the PS3 is encoutering some interference, causing the wireless signal to be a touch on the flakey side at times.
Are you able to change the wireless channel on your router to see if it makes any difference?

Have just changed the wireless channel to 13 from 11 see if that helps..
