SOAD's internet prob ;)
Ive finally had enough :(

The bloody internet is so crap I have to take the last resort.

Help from you guys ^_^

Im certain the problem is with my router and have thus uploaded some screenshots of my router. Any suggestions are more than welcome because downloading portal + episode 2 @ 3kbps (and it keeps stopping) is no fun at all.

Suggest away ^_^

For information purposes im on a 1mb BT broadband (Ireland).

A particular quirk that I experience is I will be looking at the Steam menu (or whatever). I will switch to something else that is already running (whether it uses the net or not) and the speed drops and frequently cuts out totally.

What the brand and model of your router?

I think there is something not right with VCI - 35, it should be 30 that what was set up on my uncle's unlocked BT Voyager 2091 wireless router on 2MB Orange broadband.

Also I noticed that hardware firewall protection was disabled, you should enable it.

cheers Athlon ^^

Have enabled firewall

My router is the Linksys WAG200G router.

You shouldn't have DSL at all, just so you know. I suspect you're at least 3 miles away from your CO. Look at your stats. You want both upstream and downstream noise margins to be 10db+ for any kind of stability, and your downstream is below that.

That's probably half your problem with Steam download speeds. That and just downloading from a slow/far away content server. Delete your clientregistry.blob and restart Steam. Should put you on a different server. Usually does for me.

I checked Linksys WAG200G router's firmware, you used older version 1.00.09 and need to upgrade to the latest version 1.01.05.

For the 1000th time.

1) The VPI/VCI settings have nothing to do with your issue.
2) Your downstream rate is trained at 1/2 Mbit, you're downstream rate is 576K with a 128K upstream. This is slow
3) Your SNR value is tragic, you have a noisy line, which may explain why you're training to the DSLAM/RT at such low speeds (DSLAM rate adapt)
4) Your line attenuation is pretty high, you must be far away from the DSLAM/RT. It's high, but not as big of an issue as your SNR.

You're wasting your time with any other investigations :)

Re: SOAD's internet prob ;)

Im just so pissed off. I went to bed leaving Hl2 ep 2 and portal to download. Have woken up to find no increase :(
