I'm new to broadband and wondered whether there is an degradation in the ability to upload and download by having the modem some way from the BT box.

I currently have various extensions (due to location)and wondered whether this was affecting broadband in anyway.

I still get a 589 kbps speed on connection

appreciate any advice on the matter

it makes no difference, the signal has probably already gone several KM so another few feet isnt going to make any difference if all the connection points a electricaly sound.

BTW presuming you are not on a 1Mb connection you cant connect at 589kbs on a 512kbs connection.

"I still get a 589 kbps speed on connection"

Is that a real speed or what the thing in the sys tray tells you?

click here and do an actual speed test.

even including overheads the maximum theoretical connection speed is 576kbs for a half megabit connection isnt it?
