loosing Broadband speed

  Phil-UK 13:06 13 Oct 2008


I live with 5 other people, I got my broadband (AOL) moved from my house to this house and in the evening we seem to get very poor download speed

I just ran a speed check at click here

and our current download is 3792Kbps with a upload of 348Kbps

at night this really drops and sometimes we even lose the connection for a hour or so.

I understand evening is a peak time so this can affect it but is there anything we can do to improve it?

It is odd to lose the connection if it is a contention issue. Noise on the line increases at night but I doubt it would have that much of an effect unless there is something that only operates at night ... machinery, plant equipment ??

If you want to pursue investigations, I'd suggest this forum where they are very helpful

I don't think there is anything like machinery near that effects it, I did have a look how far away the house is from the exchange and its not too far, its even stranger when I do a check and it says I should be able to get 6Mbps

thank you both for replying and i will check the website out

Go to section 5 page 18 in the manual will tell you how to set up a Wireless ad hoc network set-up

Use this section if you want to connect the HP All-in-One directly to a wireless-capable

computer without using a wireless router or access point.
