I am trying to check out my BT ADSL line using the speed tester that BT recommends which is at click here
I have installed the BTHomehub and have configured a PC with Windows XP with no firewall. It is a PC with nothing on it except the operating system. The hub is configured to allow access through. All URLs I have tried are OK and I can connect to them, EXCEPT for the site click here. Also if I try to ping this site 188.8.131.52, the request times out. Any ideas why this is happening?
If it's just a ordinary speedtest that want2no needs then I wouldn't tend to use the BT Speedtester as it's too unreliable. However, if you are having problems with your connection then it's the only one that will give your BRAS profile information which is required to diagnose faults with ADSL Max.
