You really don't want to know how much my parents are paying for it aswell :D

 

Was on the phone for 10 mins waiting for them to pick up but they never did. Going to email them now, taking about 5 mins for each webpage to open :(

Below is a Signature



Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

The speed's the same on both wired and wireless. I had a similar issue 2 years ago and it took them 2 weeks to finally sort it out, i think it was an issue at the exchange. My ping speeds earlier on were over 2000ms :|

I can only imagine you have a major line fault or your profile needs to be adjusted.What speed should you be getting,how far are you from your local exchange.Ireland is so bad for broadband,it's embarrassing.

I'm about 1.5 miles from the exchange, and my line can support 6mb/s (which I get during non peak hours).

Been on the phone to them and they say there isn't any fault on the line and that it must be something on my end. 

 

I wonder if contacting BT would be of any use?

Exactly the same thing happened to me. My speed dropped dramatically and phoning my ISP I was told there was nothing wrong and it must be at my end.

 

I cancelled my contract and went cable, best decision I've made.

I see someone went and implemented RFC1149 & RFC2549.

 

And don't worry, RFC6214 will ensure you're IPv6-ready for when the PS3 gets IPv6 support.

Noticed in the morning it was back up to 3mb/s or so, then when i got home this afternoon it's back down to less than 0.05 mb/s.

I've also noticed in my router diagnostics that the test "Test ATM OAM F5 end to end ping" fails

Anyone know what exactly that is?

That's a good result not sure who to change to myself the local phone exchange rolls out its upgrades in march my connection over the last few days has been erratic because of local maintenance work.

Have been thinking of BT Infinity what's the latest Hub like and how many ethernet ports does it have?

It's a BT homehub 3 which is decent enough. Has 4 ethernet ports (one of them is a GigE port) aswell as a USB port which can be used to connect a HDD.

 

I had a  nightmare trying to sign up to bt infinty though. I placed my order in late December with an engineer due to come around in the first week of January. I recieved the homehub in the post but the engineer never arrived. Turns out that BT had cancelled my order without telling me and couldn't give any reason why it was cancelled (they were able to transfer my phoneline over to them with no problems though :|).

 

I placed a subsquent order with them which also got cancelled, and on the verge of giving up they finally fast tracked an openreach engineer  to my house who installed bt infinity in less then 30mins. 

 

So if you are thinking of signing up to bt infinity make sure BT don't cancel the order! Seems to be a common problem from reading the bt forums.
