  1. Hi! Apologies for the long delay, been away for a while. Yes, I discovered my ideal MTU setting and entered it into TCPOptimizer. I have found a notable difference in the speed of the connection, in that it now records faster than ever before. However, it is far from stable and is so erratic as to be infuriating. It maxes out at a stupid speed around the 100mb/s mark, but can drop dramatically to such an extent that using more than one device is very taxing on the router. Leaving a large file download and watching full HD streaming video is a breeze one minute but a teeth grinding pixelate
  2. Well, I've had a bit of a play with TCP Optimizer. You're right, it is a wonderful little program. However my speed is still no where near the speed BT insist I'm getting. I've talked to an 'executive level' technician over the telephone today, very nice guy but he was less experienced than me and I'm obviously no expert! The line tests show I am getting a steady 80mbps to the router according to them (these tests were done by the visiting engineers and remotely by the call centre). Their own speed tester (speedtest.btwholesale.com) is showing 44mbps, whilst testmy.net's results are as follows

  4. Hello all! It's been a long time since I've been into the forum section, it's good to know it's as useful as ever! I have recently aquired a 76mb/s DOWN 19mb/s UP fibre optic connection from BT, I've been using the connection for about a month. Since day one the speed has been a steady but extremely dissapointing 3.5mb/s - 3.9mb/s DOWN and 1mb/s - 1.5mb/s UP. I've had several dead end conversations with BT telephone operators that have drilled through the usual scripted nonsense, and an engineer has visited (whilst my partner was home). BT have determined that I do indeed have a problem,
  5. Hello all, Been a long time since I've frequented this site, good to see it's as useful as ever! I've recently aquired a BT Infinity fibre optic line, rated at 76mb/s max dowload speed,19bm/s max upload speed. I've had it installed for about a month and had nothing but trouble with it. The speed is very consistant, unfortunately it is consistantly slow; 3.9mb/s max UP, regardless of the time of day. I am using an AMD Phenom II X4 995 processor with 4 GB RAM on a windows XP Pro operating system. I've never had issue with my hardware and tend to keep it in well fettled form. I am hard wired
