login to your router
it should open up at setup/basic setup you will see in the top part of the page, there will be a setup tab
on the left you will see Network Setup (WAN) and VC Settings
look for the DSL Modulation: setting and try changing it to multimode and at the bottom click save setting which should automatically reboot the router/modem, do a speedtest.net test and see if its improved.. as i said it work for similar issues i had but could be oversubscribed too, being in the countryside maybe your ISP infastructure has not been upgrade as more customers sign up smile.gif

Okay it turns out it's already on multimode.. so that didn't help tongue.gif haha.

well i did say it might work, as it did for me in a situatution similar tongue.gif.. i think maybe its in oversubcription as "beers" mentioned.. the best thing you can do is call your ISP and ask them to do a check from thier end..

if you check your sync speed in your routers firmware under "status" and "DSL Connection" that should display at around the speed your paying for, if that is correct then your DSL Modulation is fine but if your speed test is way lower then your area is oversubscribed.

and at a last resort change your DSL Modulation: to ADSL2+ or ADSL2+ M and see smile.gif

Yup could be overhead since on my 5 megabit connection I only got 4.2 megabit

i only ever get 1.3mb/s out of my 1.5mb connection

That's not true. When I had ATT dsl I got right at my 6Mb connection.

Look. tongue.gif With my old modem router, I could get 3mb. Now i've changed routers, I can only get 2, considering i've meant to have upgraded to this router (my previous router was quite poop) I don't understand how something as simple as the router would take a THIRD of my download away.

Maybe I should've put this as the main question too.. tongue.gif
