Windows 7: What's your Internet Speed?

To be honest I've been with all of the big boys and they are all as bad as each other. Had a good experience with Plusnet though, I was going to switch back to them, but Sky offered me this deal, and I thought it was pretty good.

I see your point, I was kidding a bit, it's just that the customer satisfation figures have just come out and Sky did not do well as Brucie might say! But then we must speak as we find. I am with BT and found them excellent over the past 3 years! I pay for "Up to 70mg" and mostly get 68 - 69!

It was on the Today programme on Radio 4 yesterday morning at 6.30am. Mind you R4 has had a downer on Sky for some time, I wonder why?

What router settings would I need to change? I think my 802.11g card in my netbook is limiting the speeds.

Since your WiFi card is Wireless-G, there's nothing that can be done to get your Ethernet bandwidth speed since Wireless-G tops out at 54 Mbps. If that's Wireless-N, you can still use 40 MHz channel width, WPA-Personal/AES encryption settings and WMM (WiFi Multimedia) all enabled on the router to get 150 Mbps for 1x1 stream or 300 Mbps for 2x2 stream WiFi card.

Nevertheless, that's still more than enough for HD streaming and demanding bandwidth tasks and it's way better than the extremely overpriced rates by TWC here in Los Angeles County.

Thanks, I thought there was nothing to change and the netbook was the issue. I won't be getting a 802.11n card for the netbook. I would however, like to put in a SSD and more memory.

(yes, I use a netbook, my main computer is apart as I transfer the parts into a new case)
