I am lan connected via Speetouch 716WL to Bulldog ADSL 16 MB/sec and on thei own www.speedtest.bulldogdsl.com
I can only get around 5.6 MB/sec and A.Beltronica gives 3.9 MB/sec
All tests done between 0230 and 0430 weekdays to avoid contention issues.
Commincated wth Bulldog and fuller.zen.co.uk/test and this gave, in effect, around 6.3 MB/sec
They then checked my line and said that it was "excellent"
Ran cmd/netstat and there were some 15 entries which they said might be interfering.
But I have a secondary drive with nothing on it other than XPpro/SP2 and nvidia video driver and repeated the execise and the download figures were not significantly different
Then they suggested that the router might be at fault and suggested resetting it which I did and nothing changed
Finally they suggested Netgear DG834 would be, perhaps, rather better. but I have looked at reviews and am totally discouraged.
I am not a techie and need aissistance to get somewhre near their clained 16 MB/sec download speed.
