could someone tell me is this right, that the Little connection ICON near the Clock sys tray for an Ntl USB Broadband connection of 300MB should show when online as 10 MBPS ?

To me this looks wrong but there again I may be wrong.

Oh, XP Home

If you mean your internet connection is 3Mbit/sec and your modem is showing 10Mbit/sec, then there's nothing wrong.

It is telling you the speed of your network card basically. Not your actual connection speed (unlike with dial-up).

also thank u PC moran and Mike sorry should of mentioned The Ntl is on Parnter's.

My own connection is Wanadoo 512Kb USB on a Win98SE.

How do I decipher form the Test Mike if my Wanadoo is working fine.

I got this from the result

Downstream 466 Kbps (58.3 KB/sec) 503 Kbps (inc. overheads)

Upstream 246 Kbps (30.8 KB/sec) 265 Kbps (inc. overheads)

Does my Wanadoo look correct ?
