Difficult to say if I am on re-transmission high as my TalkTalk router doesn't tell me that but even on that I should be able to achieve just over 70 which is still 10 more than I can actually achieve now?

So I did a bit of Googling and somebody suggested turning the router off for half an hour.

Did that and I am now getting above 70, so it looks like something was stuck.

And am now syncing at 80000 rather than 79999, that won't be significant though.

@GigabitEthernet  Not many get to the ultimate sync speed. Even adslmax would be pleased with that. ;D

To be quite honest, I was quite happy with it at 60, just wondered if there was a technical reason. I was quite happy with 50 at home too.

Glad I've got to the bottom of it though, thanks all for your help.

What you may not be aware of is inappropriate posts that have since been removed.  If he hadnt made those posts then the ensuing comments may not have happened either.



Whatever way I am not a happy bunny regarding several of todays posts.  It's 2 way and to be perfectly frank both parties are as bad as each other when you start making personal comments in each other's threads to derail it.

This situation has been brewing for a while.  Moderation can be a hard task when you try to be impartial and other forum members may not be aware of the full circumstances surrounding moderation and what action has been taken.   It's not always helpful to suggest we do this or that, when you may not be aware of the full circumstances of any other events that may have happened.

We have always been sympathetic towards members with various mental health or learning disabilities, possibly more so than some of the other BB forums.  However that too requires mutual respect & recognition of what is and is not socially acceptable. Having mental health problem is not an excuse to do what you want.   It doesn't make for a pleasant atmosphere if one person(s) start using it as an excuse to stretch the limits when it comes to socially acceptable behaviour.  Mental health problems do not give you a do what you want card... nor does it mean you can take advantage of the good nature of other forum members.

You are correct, I clearly missed those posts.  But as they were deleted that's even more reason to not to poke the bear, so to speak.

I very much appreciate the moderation style of this forum.  The fact we can drift off topic, casually chat and the threads simply get split (rather than the ban-hammer many forums use) makes it a pleasant place to visit every day.
