To increase internet speed
* Check to see if faster internet connections are in your area:
Fiber optic and cable internet tend to be faster than DSL and dial-Up.
*Do some basic maintenance on your PC:
a scan disk, a virus scan, a malware scan, and clear your recycle bin.Delete old files and temporary files.
* Reset Your Modem
Sometimes switching OFF and ON your modem helps you to speed the internet.
* Optimize your cache or temporary Internet files.
These files improve your Internet connection performance by not downloading the same file over and over.* Replace your old cable modem
* Upgrade your router firmware
* Upgrade your computer.
* Try pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete simultaneously and open up the Task Manager. Go to the process menu and close those processes that may be stealing your valuable bandwidth.
* Download programs that make browsing faster:
A good tool to increase internet speed is Internet Cyclone.
Loband.org is a browser inside of a browser that loads web pages without the images.
Firefox and Opera both have options to disable images.

After you have tried some of this,try your connection again using Scanmyspeed.com and see if you get improved speed results. If you are not satisfied Call your Internet service provider (ISP) and check whether upgradation of your plan is necessary.

Belkin router is not compatible with sky broadband


Access the router's built-in web-interface,
and check that the ID/password that you configured into the router are the values that your Internet Service Provider (SKY) gave you.

Ok here's what I want you to do. Open the start menu and locate the run option. If you have a search bar at the bottom (Windows Vista) the type in run and click on it. A small box will open at the bottom of your screen and type in the following %temp% and hit enter. Another window will open with the words temp at the top and I want you to delete all of the files in that folder. DUE NOTE THAT NOT ALL FILES WILL DELETE AND THAT'S OK.

Sky Broadband Connects for a few seconds and then goes,rarely to return


Use "free" Sky broadband setup disk to automate and save username, password, network connection, LAN/wireless properties, MAC, IP, subnet, gateway, etc on her computer, exactly as your own working system. Change her computer's IP address last digit next available number up or down: yours 192.168.1.1, hers 192.168.1.2 etc.

How do i configure my Belkin router to work with Sky broadband?


I'm not into hacking what I cannot find on ISP's sites

From what I can gather from the Sky Broadband site reading the manual installation procedures -- the process is pretty much automatic when it comes to installing their equipment leaving no clues as to how they configure it. What is the model if the Belkin router? Options probably exist to attach your device to theirs either as a router (establishing a second network behind theirs) or an access point joining as a member of their network - meaning there would would be two wireless networks in either case in the house (as there are no indications I have found on the site that the provided the sky router can be configured in any way such as turning off wireless). At least according to the documentation the sky router's wireless is running WPA-PSK security / encryption which is good -- and the documentation for attaching non-sky wireless adapters appears to be documented here.
