Bt say my broadband speed is 2.6 MPS. Internet speed tests repeatedly say its about 365KPS. BT say the problem could be my D-Link DSL Router G604T. Is this likely, please? The router is about 3 years old.

The problem is not your router. I have the same router and the same connection speed. My download speed is 300-320 kb/sec. You can download Router Commander program and check connection speed on bandwidth tab. You have bad quality line If you see round trip time bigger than 300 ms and jitter more than 70 ms. Check also that ISP not have some busy time hours, you can do it by selecting 12/24 hours time interval and see what happens on graph.

Assuming your connecting wirelessly, test it by directly connecting to it with an ethernet cable and then run a speed test. If it dramatically improves, you have a wireless problem ( router, wifi card, poor reception, etc.) If it stays about the same, probably poor speed from your broadband provider.

How do i activate my bt sports


After ordering BT Sport and setting up a BT ID, you can watch online at btsport.com and on the BT Sport App. First though, you'll need to activate your BT ID for access to the app and online player. Look out for an email containing an activation link that you need to click.
Please bear in mind that only the account holder's BT ID can be used to log in to the app and online player. You can download the app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.
The BT Sport App will work with:
  • Apple devices running iOS 6 or later, and
  • Supported Android devices running Android OS 4.1 ("Jelly Bean") or later
Search for 'BT Sport' in the app store, select the app, and then press the download button.
Your pc also needs to run Silverlight from Microsoft to use it.
see this page.
To watch the online player on a desktop computer you'll need to install Microsoft Silverlight. This is a free browser plug-in that you can download here: www.microsoft.com/getsilverlight.
The BT Sport online player will work on the following browsers: Windows PCs
  • Internet Explorer 7 or above
  • Firefox
  • Some people have reported problems with the match centre on Internet Explorer 7. To fix this, we recommend that you upgrade to Internet Explorer 8 or above. Mac
    • Safari
    Watching online at btsport.com requires a minimum line speed of 400kbps. You can test your broadband speed and find out how to improve it if necessary at www.bt.com/help/speed.

I want to connect to BT broadband using my TP-Link TD-WD8901G routerg


Sounds like you need to change the TP link router for a wireless Access Point or a range extender.
Who knows what goofing around BT does with their equipment.

How do I set up a router to extend the range of a wireless hub?


You would normally set it up as an access point. But bridge would work too.

Have look in the router settings for the actual internet connection speeds, as these are a more true reading than the speed check as the speeds can vary at different times of the day and 2 or 3 speed checks can bring different results. your actual connection speed that is showing in the routers settings is the connection you are getting from your ISP. If you are with BT they usually recommend using their latest routers, why i'm not sure, as the only thing i have noted is that the MTU is set at 1500 (Maximum Transmition Units)and in other routers the MTU is automatically set at 1493, so look for the MTU setting and up it if necassary, but not above 1500, also double check all the settings, even put the bt router back in and see if speeds improve, if, you know the BT router is set up purposly for faster connection speeds. Also try checking your speed at a speed test site at a quieter time of day, you will also see different speed check sites give you different speed results.
